Chikalicious: East Village, Manhattan, NY, NY USA
I usually don’t give this high of a rating for dessert places, but I have yet to find a cronut/doughssant/cruffin or whatever you want to call it that is as amazing as the ones at Chikalicious.
Creme Brulee Doughssant
– super fluffy inside, nice and crispy but not thick crispy on the outside: there are some places where the layers of the croissant do not separate on the outside and so it because one crispy chunk of dough. While some people like it, I like a nice thin and delicate outer crust.
– not overly sweet cream filling
– not excessively filled
– none, absolutely none.
I would definitely eat more of these and actually wish I had while I was in the area. Sadly, dessert is not something that you eat by yourself. This doughssant is light enough where you can eat two, but if you order one, it’s not that much to break the bank account. The space is somewhat small and seating is limited but it’s totally worth it to eat these on the street! You can find them here:203 E 10th St

Definitely go and get yourself one or two or several of their yummy treats!
