Cimini’s Pasticceria in Kogarah is well known for their award-winning pies and sausage rolls. But they also make a good selection of Italian sweet pastries. I headed there, eager to try one of their doughnuts.
I spotted the Zuccherati and that had to be my choice.
Zuccherati are Italian pastries with doughnut dough and custard filling. There are a few places in Sydney that make them, and you may have read a few reviews here on DomNuts of Zuccherati.
The one I got from Cimini’s Pasticceria was very good.
It was a good size – almost a meal.
It had plenty of creamy custard filling. A good Zuccherati needs a healthy amount of filling.
There was a nice coating of sugar which gave the dough a bit of sweetness.
The dough was soft, airy and a bit chewy. Pretty darn perfect.
The service was a bit cold and unfriendly, but was efficient.
If you get to Kogarah, get yourself to Cimini’s and try some of their offerings. It all looks very good.
