Paris Baguette is a Korean chain bakery around the world including USA, Singapore, and more. So this is how it goes. First, you get your own tray and tongs. Second, you select the pastries you want and place it on the tray. Last of all, bring the tray to the cashier. Easy breezy. Perfect for shy people who just want their pastries without having conversations with the workers. Or for indecisive people like me to save the employee’s time.
Look at those layers. The Opera Cake had layers of almond sponge cake soaked in coffee syrup, spread with ganache and coffee buttercream, and glazed with chocolate. It soft and moist, nothing near dry. The flavour was rich and strong while the coffee is balanced very well with the chocolate. Neither of them was overpowering. Aesthetically gorgeous and delicious.
Cute little Cheese Souffle. I could finish this in one bite. It like the softest thing I’ve ever put in my mouth. So cheesy and squishy. Didn’t even have to use my teeth the bite through it. Just my lips are enough. Yes. I tried biting through it with my lips.
Definitely the softest macaron I’ve had. It’s very different in texture compare to other macarons. Instead of having a crunchy skin, it’s soft all the way except for the feet, there you get a little crunch. The appearance is smooth and well rounded with the perfect feet; however, the taste is mediocre. The flavour is really light even though it does taste like what it is named.
Would I visit again? Yes.
