The neon cow has been spotted in Century City. It’s covering the second floor space in the Westfield Century City Shopping Center, next to HaiDiLao Hotpot, and is assuring us that pudding experts Pudu Pudu are moving in. It looks like they’re planning on a Summer opening. No idea what Pudu Pudu is? Read my post about their location in Venice for more information.
If you’ve been wondering about that neon pink cow-like creature covering the window at 1432 Abbot Kinney Blvd. in Venice, it appears that your wait is about to be over. Pudu Pudu looks like they’re close to opening and is promising us a “flavor adventure to transform pudding into edible art” using “locally sourced organic milk and health-boosting superfoods”. Yes, pudding… But wait, this pudding comes with a pedigree. Pudu Pudu is a project of the Dr. Oetker Hospitality Group. Does the name Dr. Oetker sound familiar? Dr. Oetker is the German megabrand that is on those baked goods mixes in Cost Plus World Market, as well as other stores. It has been supplying bakers since the late 19th Century, so there are some serious dessert bona fides here. We wish them the best of luck.
