Did you know? I am a custard (pasty cream) fiend. Inside breads, pastries, on top of stuff or by the spoon I love pastry cream in any manifestation.
There's a bakery next to Jeju Sauna in Duluth called Haroobaghn Bakery (which happens to be owned by Jeju Sauna also). While there are hit and misses at this bakery as well, there's one item that stands out above the rest.
The custard pie.
The pastry itself is flaky, buttery and slightly sweet with yummy pastry cream inside. Lastly, there's a fine dusting of icing sugar on top to complete the trifecta. Mozart Bakery has a similar pastry like this but Haroobaghn's version is bigger, flakier and better priced.
Also worth noting at Haroobaghn Bakery is the "iced coffee" which means coffee with cream and sugar in Korean bakery terms. It's about a dollar cheaper than all the other Korean bakeries and it tastes pretty good as well.
PS. Wondering what a haroobaghn is? It's this statue which is famous in the island of Jeju which is south of the Korean peninsula.
