15ème arrondissement

20 Jun

My Taiwanese friends brought me to a French bakery/tearoom near Zhongshan Junior High School MRT.

The shop was nice, i liked the bright colors. I chose a cake called “Café-noix” (coffee-walnuts) in which unfortunately you could only taste chocolate flavor, while it shouldn’t be there (i originally chose it because it didn’t have chocolate).

There were walnuts in the biscuit, but the coffee flavor was totally non-existent. Maybe it was supposed to be in the flavorless grey cream (not really appealling by the way), but the chocolate mousse overtook all the dessert flavor. It was also too thick to be really nice and not creamy and melting as it should for a mousse. As an entremet, a finer layer of mousse would have been better. So i don’t recommand taking this “Café-noix”.

However, i tried my Taiwanese friend dessert, which was supposed to be only chocolate, but it turned out it had a nice coffee flavor. Actually, i prefered his dessert and he prefered mine… My other friend tries a “Raspberry Mont-blanc”. The raspberry flavor was nice, but the chestnut cream was a too thick. 

So just be aware that the names are kinda tricky. Overall, it’s not the best bakery in town, but it has fair prices for the quality.
