I tried another pastry from Le Salon de thé de Robuchon, since i went to pick some Macarons. I chose the Saint-Honoré and my friends also tried some pastries: the lemon pie i already tried and a banana cake.
I was disappointed again. Now i know that i will not go there for their pastries anymore (only for the macarons). Ok, first i don’t really like chocolate in pastries, and my Saint-Honoré was filled with a chocolate mousse. But a Saint-Honoré in the “normal way” is filed with vanilla cream, not chocolate one. The mousse in itself is nice but the puffs were too soft, like mashmallows.
A nice part however was the bottom of the pastry with some caramelized pears that were good.
So: the dough wasn’t good, the filling ok (i’m not an expert when it comes to chocolate since i’m not really fond of it). The main problem is that it’s half a normal Saint-Honoré in size and the price is as high as in France. So not this is not worth it.
