A centre of poppyseed paste, soft, almost custardy in texture, with a long series of very soft and gentle pops with each bite, well calibrated sweetness. Bread-like base, cushiony, somewhat dense, with very small bubbles; supports and contrasts the poppyseed well.
This new deli is on the east side of Kilburn High Street just south of Kilburn Tube. Lots of other pastries and possibly savoury stuff like sandwiches etc. as well. More to try. They also sell varieties of sausages and cured meats, along with various condiments and accompaniments e.g. pickles, oils.
