The day I visited la lapa in the South Melbourne Markets, I got three doughnuts. Don’t worry, I didn’t eat them all myself. I had my wife and daughter to try a small amount each.
I declare Melbourne to be Australia’s doughnut capital. Seeing la lapa backs up my declaration.
la lapa has tonnes of doughnuts in their display case. And people were lapping them up (haha, good pun).
I’ve already reviewed the Honeycomb Doughnut and Custard Doughnut. Now it’s time to run the magnifying glass over the Creme Brûlée Doughnut.
The custard was the same as the custard in the Custard Doughnut. Not that it’s a bad thing. I just wish I had have chosen a doughnut that was going to be completely different. Too late now – no use crying over spilt custard.
Anyway, the custard was a good thickness – not too runny and not too thick. It also wasn’t too sweet.
The toffee on top wasn’t as hard as expected. I think it was a bit thin. It could have a thicker coating of toffee to make it more of a Creme Brûlée experience.
The dough was nice – soft and airy.
A good doughnut.
