I would like to introduce the new addition of the Rasa Deli family. Cronuts!

So, what is a cronut exactly? It is a hybrid of a croissant and a doughnut. From its appearance, it might look like any ordinary doughnut that is sold everywhere but once you take a bite, you are in for a surprise!

Rather than the expected soft-like bread texture a doughnut usually has, cronut has a flaky and layered texture that gives one who has never tasted it before an interesting gastronomical experience.

It is a rave in the west but not so much in the eastern part of the world. However, the popularity of cronuts is definitely growing and you are in luck if you are in Penang. Cronuts are available at the Shangri-La's Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa for one hour each day between 3pm to 4pm.

There are six flavours to choose from:

  • Toffee Orange
  • Lemon Raspberry
  • Nutella Banana
  • Apple Crumble
  • Chocolate Brownie
  • Vanilla Oreo
So far, I have tasted the chocolate brownie and the apple crumble. Both were yums! I am sure the rest of the family members can be accredited to the same quality and goodness.

Have a cronut-ty dream, everyone!
