Beard Papa - coming downtown Vancouver

  • 8

Straight out of Japan comes Beard Papa. I have been here before (Beard Papa) but it was when I stopped blogging (I miss those days cause I didn't have to carry my camera and my camera feels real uncomfortable in my tight jeans). This is a tasty dessert, the cream is really good and smooth and just slightly chilled. The problem is I can't eat more than half, but I don't know why. Its not too rich or too sweet, I just can't eat a full one.

They claim to be only 250 calories per cream puff which isn't that bad for a whip cream dessert. They have a calender at their stand that shows what days different flavors are available.

There is one coming downtown on Denman.

      Beard Papa's puffs are quite good, IMO. I have some pics here:

        fmed, I almost missed the BP pix because I was mesmerized in sheer horror by the beef roll IN A FLOUR TORTILLA -- argh!!!

    2. We tried the Earl Grey flavor in NYC, extremely yummy.

      1. I ate two of 'em back to back yesterday. In Tokyo, I once at a half dozen over the course of a couple hours!

        Beard Papa in Japan seem to taste better than the US/Canada ones. Regardless, they're still delicious out here.

        1. That's exciting - even if I do live in Calgary! They are quite yummy and Beard Papa, is a great pit-stop for a traveler....getting a little snack to tide you over never hurt anyone...

            a bit over-rated in my opinion. at least the cream is fresh, but the flavor of the regular wasn't anything spectacular.

          2. I went the other night! I reviewed here: www.tinglingtastebuds.blogspot.com
