Wouldn't it be even more delicious if those two "longings" were combined into one? Someone has come up with such a thing and put it into practice. Matthew Schonfeld is that person.
After purchasing the cronuts, Schonfeld rushed into the Umami Burger store with it. I took a seat at the table and combined the umami burger and the cronuts to make the "umami cronut burger". The food site "First We Feast (firstwefeast.com)" reports.
■ Schonfeld's challenge
Schonfeld's challenge began by waking up early in the morning at 5:30 and lining up at Dominique Ansel, who sells cronuts, at 6:28. The number of cronuts produced by Dominique Ansel is limited to 300 per day. Since the purchase is limited to 2 per person, it is said that the number of people who can purchase is about 150 people. So was Schonfeld in time?
However, there was a long line at the store on that day as well, and Schonfeld said he gave up counting the number of people in the line and just left his luck to heaven.
Dominique Ansel opens at 8am as usual. Schonfeld entered the store at 9:24 and successfully obtained the cronuts one minute later at 9:25.
■ Production of "Umami Kronatsu Burger"
Schonfeld then entered Umami Burger's New York store. Purchase an umami burger and start making "umami chronatsu burger" at the table in the store.
It's easy to make. First, cut the cronut horizontally in half. Next, put the delicious burger hamburger patty in it and you're done. The cronuts are packed full of blackberry fillings, and Schonfeld's hands are said to be sticky with hamburger oil and blackberry fillings.
In this way, at 11:40, the first ever hybrid food "Umami Cronut Burger" of "Kronatsu" and "Umami Burger" was completed.
■ What is the taste?
From the completed image of "Umami Kronatsu Burger", you can feel the irreparable feeling. In Sensha Yoshida's comic, there was a story about a man who muttered, "Well, I wonder if it's irreparable for the first time in a long time," and throws well-mixed natto inside the computer, but it's so exciting that it reminds me of that. It's a lot of natto.
But unbelievably, the taste isn't bad. Schonfeld describes the taste of umami chronat burger as follows.
"Surprisingly, the flavors of the two blended together perfectly. The sweetness of the blackberry filling accentuates the fragrant umami flavor."
Schonfeld, who succeeded in this challenge, said in the end, "I'm proud of myself."
