Pastry: Dry and crunchless layers 4/10
Presentation: Heavily dusted and neatly cut cube 8/10
Value for money: $4 - huge portion but not the best quality 5/10
Overall score: 5.75/10
From the video you can see that the custard was a little on the wibbly wobbly, gelatinous side, but to my surprise is wasn’t rubbery in texture and bland. It was set, yes, but also quite smooth, creamy and full of vanilla. Unfortunately that was as good as it got. The pastry, although clearly fresh, had a poor texture and was dry and lacked any bite. Just like my last vanilla slice in Deer Park, I used a utensil to scoop out the custard, leaving behind the disappointing pastry. In summary, not the best banh mi and not a great vanilla slice.
