Just recently, we get the first taste of Rasa Deli’s croinuts, a delicious merge of croissant and doughnut. The deli at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa, Penang is making the croinuts, a version based on the cronuts created by New York-based chef Dominique Ansel.

“The croinuts are made of laminated dough and deep-fried. The soft and layered interior is filled with fresh tangy lemony flavored pastry cream and its exterior rolled with flavored sugar,” says executive pastry chef, Dino Wan Teik Boon. 

Flaky on the outside, the croinut flavors include a combination of fruity, tart and creamy tastes. Right now there are six flavors like Toffee Orange, Lemon Raspberry, Chocolate Brownie, Apple Crumble, Nutella Banana and Vanilla Oreo. 



The chef shares that the croinuts are best eaten almost immediately or within two hours. We did just that over coffee and tea. Addictive chocolate offerings include Chocolate Brownie, Nutella Banana and Vanilla Oreo. The chef gives the Chocolate Brownie a crunchy bite with added toasted walnuts.



For those who love Oreo cookies, try the Vanilla Oreo croinuts, sprinkled with chopped pistachios and crunchy Oreo cookies. The Nutella Banana is equally appealing, with combination of nutty flavored chocolate, hazelnut and banana. 



The bakery also serves up refreshing light Lemon Raspberry croinuts. The tartness of the raspberry pairs well with the light and tangy lemon pastry cream. 

Fresh quantities of croinuts (only 100 pieces) are available daily, from 3pm to 4pm to enjoy at the premises or to takeaway. The croinut cost RM9.50+ per piece, RM18+ (two croinuts), RM34+ (four croinuts), RM50+ (six croinuts), RM65+ (eight croinuts) and RM95+ (twelve croinuts).
