The advantage of living in Sant Cugat instead of central Barcelona is that I can always visit this bakery near the train station. It takes 25 minutes from Pl. Catalunya to Sant Cugat. Whether or not it is worth visiting depends on how much you value quality bread/ pastries/ cakes, but if 25 minutes can take you to food from heaven, I believe it is definitely worth going.

 (There is a monastry in Sant Cugat too so now you have an excues to go there!)

The perfect way to start a day is with a great coffee. In Serrajordia they serve Illy Coffee. The way they make Cafe con Leche is like Caffe Latte, where the milk foath is so soothing and the temperature of the milk was just right that the milk foam nicely blended in with the coffee. It is never disappointing. Sometimes it would come beautiful latte art on top which delighted me in the mornings.

The first ever pastry I tried was the chocolate croissant. I have always loved chocolate croissant a lot and I have been going around town, searching for the best chocolate croissant. One thing to note is that the Spanish uses a lot of lard in their pastries production. Therefore it is hard to find buttery and flaky pastries in most bakeries. The worst I found is they often put a sugar glaze on top of croissants. I mean... may be some people like that... but for me, it just make it soggy and sticky and ehhhhh no thanks.

In Barcelona many bakeries had their chocolate croissants filled with tremednous amount of rich chocolate cream, have both ends dipped in chocolate and topped with chocolate sprinkle. I mean... how awful is that? I was so satisfied with all these sickly chocolate croissants in random cake shops I found, until I went to Serrajordia and bought my first ever pastry there.

The croissants in Serrajordia was surprisingly crunchy even when I bited into the part it was dipped in chocolate! It was buttery, really crispy on the exterier while it is extremely moist and fluffy inside. Both the chocolate cream filling and the dipped-in chocolate was really strong. There is also white chocolate version availabler. It is definitely made for all chocolate addicts!

(well I must admit you can basically skip lunch after having this for breakfast. Better treat it as a dessert!)

Bikini Croissant was not bad too. The croissant was as buttery and flaky as they were, with cheese and ham filling inside. Though I think the sweet ones were more outstanding.

Palmier was really amazing! It was so crunchy, buttery, with a caramelised layer on both side which made it sweet and even crunchier. It was baked perfectly given the size of it. (bigger than my face!lol)

Sandwich were pretty good too. They were made to order with the fresh bread they made in store everyday. I had this smoked salmon and manchego cheese sandwich in their signature Spanish coca bread. It was served with spinach, tomato and mayo. For 2.85 euros, this half-portion fresh sandwich was too huge and there were sooooo much fillings! The coca bread was toasted and it had a slight chewy texture while it was crunchy on the exterier. The fillings were amazingly fresh and there was so much smoked salmon!!!! Gosh how could you ever find this in Hong Kong?

Cakes were impressive. My favourite two were 70% flourless chocolate cake and Lemon Meringue Tart.

The chocoalte cake was seriously so rich and indulging. The cake had a meringue-texture layer on top, while it was moist and velvety inside. It seriously melted in my mouth! A MUST TRY!

Unfortunately I didn't manage to take a photo of the Lemon Meringue tart. It had a genersous amount of tangy, creamy lemon curd, and the meringue had a fluffy texture similar to how Paul Lafayet used to make it when they still serve Lemon Meringue Tart. The tart base was not over buttery but still crunchy enough for my liking.

They also have take-away frozen mousse cakes and mousse cups. One evening I invited two other exchange friends, Kevin and Sophia to come over to my place and have dinner after class. Kevin bought me some lovely wine and Sophia bought us these cute little dessert cups! They were absolutely incredible. The texture was almost like icecream as they were frozen but they were so smooth and the mousse was layered with some chocolate crispy balls which made it almost like parfaits! My favourite was the lemon ones as they were really refreshing.

There were much more on offer. Go find out yourself!
