I just realized that I completely forgot to post about our visit last September at Supermoon Bakehouse in the Lower East Side: yes, It has been a while, but still, it is worth mentioning this place that sets itself apart from other bakeries by proposing creative baked goods like the cruffin, a croissant and muffin or the banoffee croissant, a banana and toffee croissant, names that seem to be inherited from the cronut invented few years ago by Chef Dominique Ansel. Still, Supermoon Bakehouse is trying to stay original, without copying what others are doing. At the time we went, they had a chocolate chip cookie croissant that was made with a milk chocolate creme patissiere, topped with meringue and chocolate chip cookie. The second thing we tasted was their chocolate hazelnut donut that was delicious. In fact, they make very good croissants and donuts that is a good first step as this is their base for original treats.
I should mention that they do not only offer sweet options, but also savory ones like the croquet monsieur twice baked croissant or the reuben croissant. Reviewing the photos from our past visit, I am thinking that we should go back there…
Enjoy (I did)!
