Free food: Früute opens on Saturday in WeHo
Früute comes to West Hollywood on Saturday, with tarts gratuit for all who want to come and get 'em from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. during the shop's grand opening.
A family affair, Yolanda Santosa has collaborated with her mother and younger sister to open a pastry shop a la tart on Santa Monica Boulevard, creating edible works of art.
Their 18 signature tarts are hand-made from scratch daily. Featured offerings include the budino, with creamy butterscotch pudding in a chocolate crust, topped with a caramel-filled macaroon; the piña colada, a tropical burst of pineapple, coconut and rum in a coconut sprinkled crust, topped with a blackberry and gooseberry; the mont blanc, caramelized banana with a hint of rum in a chocolate crust, topped with caramel wafer, chestnut cream swirl and pistachio; and the araguani, with araguani chocolate in a chocolate crust, topped with rose petal and gold leaf.
Tarts are $3 each, $12 for a box of four or $24 for a box of eight.
