Doutour Brownie

Good morning everyone,

Well, the rain should let up sometime this morning (if it hasn't already) and we can expect the skies to clear and warm, sunny weather all weekend and into next week.

I know that Starbucks, Mr. Donuts and Haagen Dazs tend to get most of my food reviews on here. Not necessarily because they are the best, but because they change their menus so often and bring seasonal items for us to enjoy on a regular basis.

But, I have to say that I really enjoy the brownies at Doutour. Have you ever tried one? They're not cheap...they're between Y200 and Y220 each and they're about 2 or 3 bites each. They go great with a hot coffee though. They're creamy and sweet without being overpowering.

There are 4 different flavours to choose from:

Ganache: a rich chocolate based cake with thick ganache on top and covered in chocolate. Sounds too rich and sweet, right? Wrong. It's just right and compliments a cup of black coffee perfectly.

Berry Berry: it's just a little sweet and a little tart with a mix of raspberry and strawberry. A perfect compliment to the chocolate covering.

Triple Nuts: as the name says, it's a the same rich chocolate cake as the ganache, but sprinkled with 3 kinds of nuts (or kind of...), it's got almonds, walnuts and pumpkin seeds (are they nuts?) on top which add a little crunchiness to the chocolate

Caramel ganache: my personal favourite. Chocolate cake covered in rich, creamy caramel and topped with milk chocolate. I'm a bit biased though, because caramel and chocolate together can never go wrong in my eyes.

Anyway, any of them will go well with a coffee and they're great to order 2 or 3 and share them! With who...hmmm...well, me of course! Ha ha!

Have a great day!
