I’m not gonna talk about the next pear as some people might say ;p, but about the special bread of Sanshia: the Bull Horn Croissant. So what is it? Basically, it has the shape of a real and plain croissant, except that the extremities are a little more curved. That’s for the shape.
As for the taste, well, forget about croissant. It’s more like a bun. I tried 4 Bull horns croissants (2 melons because i was disappointed by the first one, one chocolate and one plain + i tasted pineapple, strawberry, tea and red bean) and my favorite are the melon ones.
What’s great is that you have a lot of flavors: chocolate bread, melon bread, pineapple bread, tea bread, coffee bread, plain, and other with filling: chocolate, red bean, green bean, strawberry… Everyone can find its favorite.
I like the crispy thing on the top, but the bun in itself isn’t really special and quite heavy compared to a croissant that is flaky and “ventilated”.
In fact, the more i get to know about Taiwanese pastries, the more i tend to think that they have a lot of great ideas for their desserts. However they are behind concerning the taste compared to French ones -according to me- (except for pineapple cake, suncake and shaved ice :d).
