NYC Quick Chop! Bibble and Sip

Bibble and Sip - 253 W 51st Street, NYC, 10019

I can't remember what I was searching for, but one day I (Mirko) came across Bibble and Sip on Instagram and saw their Matcha Cream Puff and immediately (well, a few weeks later) had to go to try these babies out.

So one Saturday morning off I went to see whether I could get a few of these for myself. I arrive at Bibble and there is already a line starting to form. It's not long before I am inside and approaching the counter ready to order... there is a distinct lack of Cream Puff orders for the patrons before me... maybe they don't want any?

It's finally my turn to order and I am told that I have to line up for the Cream Puffs and the line doesn't start until 11:30am with people not being let into for purchase until around 12:00pm or 12:30pm. Luckily, it's 11:15am and I am one of the first people at Bibble waiting for these Cream Puffs so I decide to stay and wait to get my hands on them.

So whilst I wait, I continue with the Matcha theme and order a Matcha Latte.

Matcha and Jasmine Latte 
The Matcha latte was advertised as 'sweetened' so I expected it to be sweeter than it actually was. Whilst this was the case, I still liked the flavour of the Matcha for 2 reasons. 1) I like Matcha, and 2) I am familiar with the taste of Matcha which some describe as a little bitter. This latte definitely had this flavour, so if you are not a fan of this taste I would steer clear.

By this time, I am in line for about 30 minutes - 15 more minutes to go (as we were told earlier) - wrong, around 30 more minutes to go due to some slight delays in the kitchen. Well, I am here already, no point in leaving now! So then and there I decide I am purchasing the maximum one can (4) given the sacrifices I had to make waiting in this line.

I ordered 3 Matcha and one Earl Gray cream puff to try.

Matcha and Earl Gray Cream Puffs - Approximately $4.00 each
In all cases, the choux pastry was light, airy and soft encasing a smooth cream filling. The Matcha puff consisted of a white chocolate matcha cream which added some sweetness to the cream. Whilst this was the case, the matcha is still prevalent in the cream with the white chocolate not being overbearing. The matcha powder on the top added a slight bitterness to the puff which balanced the cream. Additionally, the powder also added some additional crunch and texture to the puff. Fans of matcha will definitely enjoy this dish.

The Earl Gray puff consisted of an Earl Gray vanilla bean mousse. Again, the cream was smooth and sweet with the subtle flavour of Earl Gray tea coming through. Another nice cream puff.

Whilst I was a little annoyed that I was not aware of a requirement to line up for the cream puffs (maybe through fault of my own and lack of research, or because it's not mentioned anywhere), overall, I was pleased with the taste and would go to purchase these again (maybe sans line, if i happen to be passing by).

Bibble and Sip also serve a number of other items (see menu here) ranging from scones, muffins, pastries and desserts, as well as coffee and teas.  All looking equally as delicious so again, I would like to give these a try!
