The Verdict

We know we’re in good company when we say that carbs are life (also wine, but that’s a conversation for another day). Well, since launching in Melbourne late last year, PAFU pastries have amassed quite the cult following...and now they’re heading up the coast to Sydney. 

This is the third Australian outpost by PAFU, and they’ll be slinging the same puffy, fruit-and cream-filled pastries Melbournians have been going wild for. So what is a PAFU? Good question. PAFU is a Japanese spin on the classic French apple turnover. Only in this one (like most Japanese desserts), the texture dial has been cranked to 11. Perfectly crisp pastry, fluffed and puffed to outrageous proportions. Creamy custard and squishy bits of fresh Fuji apple. You don’t need to be a world-class gastronome to know that combo is going to make your eyes roll back and your knees buckle.

And if all that isn’t enough for you to jump a train straight to PAFU, then this will be. They’ve been developed by the same team behind other Japanese foodie sensations like the Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tarts and PapaRich (you’d recognise them from their recent, and delicious AF collab with Belles Hot Chicken). 

PAFU will open at Macquarie Centre on 16 June and we are ready.
