I follow many food-fantastic Instagram accounts operated by local and traveling foodies. I love to drool over pictures of delicious food and torture myself when I scroll down my feed all day long. Anyway, from time to time, something catches my eye.
I spotted these pretty pastries on someone’s Insta. What are these tasty looking buns (yes, yes, I know how it sounds like)? I see someone else post about these puffs a few days later and then a video. I am intrigued and look for more pictures. The puffs looked so good with its goo-y center and I wanted to try them ASAP. I thought Bibble and Sip was a brand new coffee place but turns out they have been open for a while now but I just caught wind a bit later.
I immediately ask a friend who lives close to Bibble and Sip to go with me. Of course, she tells me that it is already her go-to coffee joint but to my surprise, she has never tried the puffs before! We decide to go on a weekday and at off-hours, to beat the crowd. I knew that was a smart decision on our part when I passed by on a Saturday afternoon a week later and the line was out the door!
We try the matcha puff and the earl grey puff and I buy extra ones to bring home for the husband (I'm a good wife!). There were other treats that piqued our interest but they were already sold out. We paired our treats with some delicious smooth lattes. I try the jasmine matcha latte but since I asked to keep it as unsweetened as possible, they layed off too much of the jasmine syrup (since that's where all the sugar was) and it was basically a matcha latte in the end. The place was a bit crowded and full so we decided to take our treats on the go and finally took a bite back at my friend’s apartment.
Between the green tea and Earl grey puff, we preferred the Earl Grey more but I liked the crispy tops on both of them. What I also liked about them was they weren’t super sweet and you feel like it’s okay to have more than one. I'm not sure if I'd wait in line to give the puffs another try but I feel like they are good treats to buy and share with friends. You just can't find them anywhere else in the city.
