Where can we get the BEST custard for a friend with a broken jaw?

We are in Pasadena, but we would travel anywhere! Thanks!

    1. about 6 months ago i had some excellent creme brulee at ocean avenue seafood in santa monica.
      probably there are some sources for this sort of dessert closer to you . . .

      1. If you can find a Vietnamese che place (i.e. Banh Mi Che Cali is close by in Alhambra--647 W Valley Blvd Alhambra, CA 91803) they always have really yummy flan in the refrigerated section, along with Vietnamese yogurt (which is super creamy and made with condensed milk instead of regular sugar) and a variety of other tapioca type desserts that would be easy on your friend's jaw. Plus, you can get a little culture along with your custard choice!

        1. The custard and tapioca at Philippe's downtown are very old-fashioned, comforting, and delish. I think the tapioca is slightly better, but grab them both for your friend.

          1. Not custard, but if I had a broken jaw my go-to sweet treat would be the belgian chocolate pudding at Trader Joe's.
