Like Gabriel Medina and backside surfing, this Soho bakery focuses on one thing that few others choose to prioritize: brigadeiros. And just as it paid off for Medina with the first Pipeline win by a goofy-footer in two decades, this Soho bakery can claim the best bite-sized chocolate truffles in the city. Mix and match any of the 20 or so flavors displayed in the glass case at the front of the small storefront, but one that’s non-negotiable is coconut. Inside the paper-thin shell coated in coconut flakes, there’s a blend of condensed milk, cocoa powder, and butter, all of which changes from solid to liquid the instant you take a bite.
