1. Kouign-amann at Pâtisserie Au Kouign Amann
Au Kouign-Amann’s namesake kouign-amann is best described as a sweet upgrade to a croissant for those who prefer a more saccharine pastry option. Layers of laminated dough are folded with butter and sugar which caramelizes as it bakes, causing the final product to have an outer layer shattering almost like glass upon consumption and an interior that’s soft, flaky, sweet and incomparably delicious. The best part is that it’s available by the slice or the whole pie, but if you want the latter, order ahead of time. Don’t be that jerk who buys up the whole thing on the fly.
