Beard Papa’s and Queensbay Mall

It has been approximately 1 week since Queensbay Mall opened its doors to shoppers in Penang. Since then I have been there for 5 times! Once even before it opened, just to have a glimpse of what the largest and longest mall in Northern Malaysia will look like. And to think that some jealous competitors spreading false news via SMS 2 weeks ago about a collapse in Queensbay Mall.. Hmm, what a cheap tactic.

Beard Papa’s is something new here. It was attracting a lot of passersby so I decided to have a look. Apparently Beard Papa’s is known as the bakery of the “World’s Best Cream Puffs“. And of course, I think that’s self-claimed :P

A lady who saw me approaching immediately tried to convince me to buy a couple of cream puffs to try. The conversation goes like this,

Lady: Hey hey, wanna try some cream puffs? They are very nice one.

Me: Hmm, how much for a piece?

Lady: Only RM15 per box of 5, and RM3.30 if bought individually. Buy now and keep in the fridge, tommorow still can eat lah~

Me: HAR? RM3.30 for one? So expensive!

Lady: No lah. Once you try, you won’t feel it’s expensive. It’s very worth one!

Me: (Thinks for a while…) OK lah, try something new.

This is how a Beard Papa’s World’s Best Cream Puff looks like – crispy on the outside and topped with icing sugar.

A bite reveals the vanilla cream in the cream puff. It tasted like the egg custard in egg tarts, just not as sweet and milkier.

In the center of Queensbay Mall are 3 big Christmas trees which remind me of the ones in KLCC. They are beautifully lit and provide a great spot for visitors to take photos.

If you have never seen the huge Christmas trees in KLCC, looking at the ones in Queensbay Mall will do as well – just imagine enlarging them 2-3x bigger ;) Oh yeah, T.G.I Friday’s is already open? Ooooh, can’t wait to have their Mocha Mud Pie again :drool:
