extravagant don't you think? Meringue on top of a danish pastry. I think the burnt outlines on the meringue made me bought it without hesitation! It's sooo pretty!!
The original price of this piece was $3.50 still reasonable i think but i got it at half the price because at Pan Pacific Atrium Deli after 7pm, danishes, croissants and bread are at 50% discount. this made it all the more worthwhile for me to get this blueberry danish.
is it any good as it looks?
yes! it's heavenly! it would have been better had i ate it the day i bought it. i ate it for breakfast on tuesday and this was how it went.
tasted the ultra tempting looking meringue. some parts of it burnt as you noticed from the pic. it would have been crispy if eaten immediately when it's out from the oven and soft in the inside. i like the burnt taste and the slightly still frothy inside.
eating this danish was a mean feat. in that the meringue was quite high, but i didnt mind. at the same time, the blueberry jam in the centre couldnt wait to ooze out!! the jam was generously piled in. as i ate, it started dripping. dark purplish watery, sauce stained the tissue i brought out just in time to prevent the drip hitting my dress, and then blueberries started to fall out before i could 'rescue' them. it turned out to be quite messy as i ate but it definitely was a fulfilling breakie.
as for the pastry, well i'd be unfair to judge as it was kept in the fridge, taken out and subjected to the cruel weather conditions as i made my trip to office. so, i believe it was supposed to be good.
regardless, for $1.75 i will definitely go back and get my hands on it again! :D
