Milky Cream Desserts from Hatzis

Bought some creamy sweets from Zacharoplasteio Hatzis in Syntagma area.


From the round cup in the left up corner clockwise, they are Keskoul, Malebi, and Tauk Giouksou, all around 4 euros.

Giouskou was the least interesting of all: it was virtually custard cream mixed with some nuts. Tastewise it was fine, but nothing exciting.

The other two were more interesting.

Malebi is a cream made from buffalo milk and rice powder, scented, I think, with flowerwater and mahlepi. It was written that it contained mastiha, but I could not sense it.

Tauk Giouskou is milk, rice power and chicken breast pudding. Again it was scented with either flower water or mahlepi.

I seem to like these flavourings of the last two and ate them with great dilectation.
