i think it’s been a year since Paul opened in taka, and i’ve been wanting to try it since then!! so glad that i’ve got the chance to now :) their pastries are really super awesomeeeeee :D and i would love to go back for the desserts sometime. can’t believe i missed them, but i was really too full unfortunately :( went there for brunch!
greedy me decided to order a patissier’s bread basket ($9.90) all for myself! actually i would suggest ordering this to share, together with other things (maybe…dessert? :P), but it definitely gives you the chance to try out their awesome breads which i am absolutely crazy about! i loved their croissant for it’s crackly texture and fluffy interior. i’ve had the chance to eat such wonderful croissants, like tiong bahru bakery as well! i would totally want to like a post on my favourite croissants or eggs benedict someday. hehe ^^ a surprising discovery was the briochette! when i first saw the picture of it, a round bun that didnt stand out much next to the croissant and pain au chocolat, i didnt take much notice of it. however, when i bit into the bun, i was surprised at how warm and fluffy and it was!!! i absolutely loved it! the briochette is also slightly dense, which makes it a delight to bite into.
on the other hand, i was kinda disappointed with the pain au chocolat as i felt it wasnt that wonderful as it was touted to be. for the flute (which is kinda like a french loaf/baguette), have it with the butter and jam provided. it’s yummy! :)
papa had the Gaufre chocolat ($7.50) which is a waffle with chocolate sauce. while i felt that looks-wise, it wasnt very impressive, it tasted pretty good! i loved how the waffle was warm and fluffy inside, and the chocolate sauce was delectable!
for the mains we had the Oeuf brouilles ($9.80) which is scrambled eggs with soft bread, cherry tomatoes, turkey ham and sauteed cherry tomatoes. we also ordered the Oeuf sur le plat ($9.80) which is exactly the same, except that it’s sunny side up eggs. in my opinion, stick to the breads/pastries/desserts at Paul (although i havent tried the desserts but i heard it’s good!) because the mains werent very outstanding. the eggs were pretty decent, but the rest of the dish was just alright and didnt impress.
anyway, to end off on a good note, here is a teaser of the desserts on offer! dont they look gorgeous <3.<3 hehe.
