Royal Custard Puff, Melbourne

There’s a teensy little packed store in one of the arcades in Chinatown with whiffs of sweet goodness following onto Bourke St Mall. Half the fun in Royal Custard Puff is in watching the balls come out of the always on machine, the snack itself is a bit meh for me. No photos, but try getting one if you’d like to gauge the reaction of the staff who happen to be on that shift.

You can get five balls for the princely sum of $2 or go wild for fifteen at $5. The balls come in one variety and basically custard substance in pastry-like cake batter. Just a bit too dry for me to be excited but I guess it’s unique.

Pro tip: wait a minute before eating to allow it to reduce to acceptable temperature levels.
