In one word: Breeze-block
This is my third installment from Acland Street, with only Europa to sample next time. Le Bon claim to have the best vanilla slice in the state...a bold statement. I admire their range; with traditional, chocolate, raspberry, strawberry and coffee options too. I chose the traditional vanilla as I thought it looked most custardy compared to the other creamier-looking options. Their slices are HUGE, like breeze-blocks crumbling with flaky pastry and oozing with sweet creamy goodness. Unfortunately, no custard filling - just cream. The whole thing was an enjoyable, messy experience to consume and left me feeling pretty stuffed. The pastry was the real hero of the slice; light, beautifully baked and as flaky as they come. As for the rest, it was really just a heavy dose of lightly whipped cream and icing sugar. Good, but definitely not the best in state.
