I was just in S&R Shaw a few days ago and didn’t know that a new carb heaven opened until I saw a picture in Instagram. I immediately went back yesterday to check out the temptations they offered.
To get to Scarsdale Artisan Delights you must enter the left gate of S&R if you’re coming from S. Laurel street. If you take the right gate you have to pass through the parking of S&R and make a u-turn at the gate.
The place is named after a town in New York and not the diet as I first thought. 😀
I went there to have a sandwich for lunch. Silly me asked one of the owners which sandwich was healthier.
She replied, “None. All our sandwiches use either a doughnut or baked croughnut as the bread.” Oooohh so sinful!!
Go Nuts Donuts is their sister company and they carried the complete line of GND cookie spreads.
From the stairs’ landing you can see their immaculate kitchen.
I guess these are supposed to be bags of flour.
The artist was finishing the wall mural on the second floor.
You can see Starbucks and Project Pie right across the street.
Since nothing was ‘healthy’ I decided to order something I really like – Chicken Pot Pie. Even though this was a sandwich it really tasted almost like a pot pie since the baked croughnut was really light, flaky and crisp just like puff pastry.
Before eating I just had to remove some undesirables – onions and cucumbers. 😀
Now it’s ready to eat. I was quite happy with the chunky chicken in white sauce without potatoes! There was lettuce too and I think I will remove that too next time for a more pot pie like experience. Even when eaten cold the sandwich was delicious. Why cold? The aircon in the second floor was freezing and by the time I finished taking pictures my sandwich was cold.
I took home half of my sandwich and fries. Their packaging was really impressive. Even if you buy 1 doughnut or croughnut they pack it in a sturdy box and closed it with a big sticker. The big box for half a dozen croughnuts was even more impressive in black.
Check out all the unique and lovely croughnut creations.
The apple pie croughnut tempted me the most.
Carlo’s Favorite is filled with dulce de leche and topped with 72% dark chocolate ganache and pecan praline. Carlo is Chef Carlo Miguel who’s also a partner in Scarsdale.
I didn’t even resist buying a Green Tea Glazed doughnut which I wish had more green tea flavor. I will definitely be back for the roast beef and pulled pork sandwiches and maybe the vegetarian cheddar jalapeño which I was told was super duper cheesy.
As soon as I got home I walked my doggies hoping to burn all the calories I ate. You can see my doggies need to go on a diet too.
