You can't lie about choux pastries. Their light crispy shell is in itself a dead giveaway to whether it has been kept overnight or not. On Silom Complex's basement floor, it can be tough trying to navigate and break through all that franchise clutter to get a really good bite, but rest assured that some bake-houses do offer quality choux pastries with a zing of their own.
Choux Creme, a blue and white stand alone which focuses on selling choux puffs, offers delightful fillings the market has yet to catch onto.
The staples are there like other choux houses - vanilla, chocolate and green tea - but what we really like are the less conventional flavours that really give a breath of new life into these mass-commercial puff balls that are about to flood the market.
To love is the Nutella and Earl Grey tea fillings, which are bigheartedly aromatic and have a more distinctive kind of sweetness than ol' chocolate would. You can catch both of these fillings on Friday. On weekends, try Thai tea fills, while hazelnut coffee and Skinny Vanilla is available during midweek.
The original sized puffs at Choux Creme (55 baht or 250 baht for a box of five) have a cookie coat on top which creates a delightfully crispy crunch. The miniatures are at 35 baht a piece while vanilla ice-cream fillings are at 70 baht. They've also got the cream right - you can tell it's not made from whipped cream or powdered milk like other places might try to get away with.
