Corica Apple Strudel

These days, whichever blogs I hop to, I'll see food. Being the "kiasu" (scare lose) me, I decided to write a post about pastry. I've written about this post before but it's a shared post. So, I decided to dedicate this whole post for it. Melbourne Day 2, I'm sorry I've to put you behind for a while...

Anyway, today, I'm going to introduce Perth most famous-everyone-must-try-Apple-Strudel!


Many pastry shops make apple strudel. However, I have to say, Corica makes the best apple strudel in the world Perth. Although Corica is famous for its strudels, no doubt, their cakes and pastries taste good as well.

Continental strudels, cakes and pastries.

The other day, I was telling Chris that I craved for apple strudels. Without asking me, he ordered 2 apple strudels few days after I told him that. One for his friend from Singapore and one for me. Not his treat, I paid! :P

Apple strudel in a box.

Corica apple strudel is well packed in a rigid cardbox. You don't even have to worry you might accidentally spoil the strudel during transportation. This shows how thoughtful they are in maintaining the best quality of strudels for their customers.

How long is this?

An, 35 to 40 cm long, apple strudel costs Aud$15.50. I know, it's kinda pricey for pastries but I can tell you that it's definitely worth every single cent of yours!

Salivating yet?

Corica apple strudel is made of layers of crispy pastry with generous amount of custard and apple filling in between. I think the secret recipe behind this studel is the custard and apple filling. ;)

A piece of apple strudel for me.

The pastry is crispy and topped with fine sugar. Not like other apple strudels, it tastes not too sweet which makes it heavenly delicious! One small piece of that? No... it's not enough.

So, what are you waiting for? For those who have never tried before, grab one now!

Where is Corica?

106 Aberdeen Street,
Perth, 6003 Australia.
Tel: 08-9328-8196

What's the opening hours?

8a.m. - 5:30p.m. (Mon. - Fri.)
8a.m. - 12:30p.m. (Sat.)
Closed (Sun.)

Since these apple strudels are famous and run out fast, be sure to order through phone one day before to avoid any disappointment.

P/s: If you're visiting Perth, worry no more. You can still get it board on plane. Corica does provide specially made box to make this possible! :)

Additional Info:

If you're in Perth City or Metro Area, you can reach Corica by taking a FREE Blue CATS bus (Central Area Transport Service). This is a free bus service provided by Transperth. A copy of the bus route can be downloaded HERE!

Hop on to the Blue CATS and get down at Stop 10 (Aberdeen St.), shown in the route. It's just right across the road if I'm not wrong. Happy Hunting!:)

My Indonesian student who was studying in Perth bought me one. mmmm.... it was so so good!!!

Another Indonesian student studying in Melbourne would take a flight to Perth to bring back boxes of it whenever she has the craving. The extra boxes are orders from her friends. The attraction of Corica apple Strudel!! Wow!

eastcoastlife said...

Singapore also has this Apple Strudel. The baker went to learn from the original Corica owner. The standard not too bad though.

Corica sold a franchise to a Singaporean but the shop opened for less than a year and folded. :(

FireHorse said...

I kam oredi with your chicken porriage and century egg, i see you sleeping liao, good la rest up ok, and here some leng teh for u and oso bling some siow pow for you to eat in case u get hungry later on after eat porriage. Take care. Faster get better.

keeyit: Yea, it's yummylicious!

firehorse: Thanks a lot for your chicken porridge and century egg, as well as the leong teh and siow pao. Definitely need those food. Thanks again, I'll get well soon...HOPEFULLY!:p

eastcoastlife: Chris told me it's still not up to the standard leh.

So, now the shop has closed ah?

eastcoastlife said...

Renaldo, the first Apple Strudel shop to open in Singapore, is located in my area. The boss is a lady. She went to Perth to learn from the owner. That was like almost 10 years ago. Her business is still good. The franchise one closed within a year.

teckiee said...

It's $19 now

I had Corica every year when a family member returns from perth. I just went to perth in early Sep 2012 and bought 6 strudels which they put in a nice carton carrier with handles. It fits 6 cartons of strudels nicely, so that you can bring it as hand-carry on your flight.
Ritz and Renaldo's cannot compare with Corica. The apples are much more crunchier! Lol. Anyways, its AUD18 for an apple strudel. Try eating the strudel with icecream. Sugar loading time!

Danny said...

I'd like to ask a bit to
@eastcostlife or whoever here. Is that has almost same taste between the branch in singapore with corica on perth? or quite different?
