I really love going grocery shopping – truth be told, i just love looking at different kinda food.. and different kinda ingredients. I have always been this way.. especially if i was traveling. But you and I know that supermarkets can be a fascinating place to be .. not only for kids.. but for adults.. especially for someone who loves food.
I haven’t had a good creme brulee for a long, long time. The last time i had one was when i was at the Marco Polo Hotel at the Brasserie in Hong Kong. But my favorite is still the ones from the Shangri-la Hotel in Singapore.. at the Coffee Garden. I used to drive all the way there just to buy fresh creme brulee for lunch. My bosses used to think i was crazy.. muahhaa!!
I’m sure if i looked hard enough here in Canada.. someone could probably make some good creme brulee – the last time i had mine here in this town was from Chez Bruno and he charged like $10 a dessert – it was a special menu thing.. not done everyday .. at that time. But i was very disappointed with his creme brulee because it was nothing like the ones I’ve eaten before – not even the ones from Paris – Le Terrazze or Le Vin Sobre ( a budget cafe).
So when i saw these at the local supermarket .. i had to try it.. and although i still needed to do some work and put it into the conventional oven for 5 – 8 mins.. it was worth it.. and it only cost $4. So how does it taste.. ?? not bad.. not bad.. although mass produce , i donch mind it at all. So for those in Canada.. you can find this at Superstore. I don’t know if it is seasonal or not.. but it’s there right now.
