Almond Turnover

25 Apr

I used to dream about being able to eat a Galette des rois everyday, now it’s possible! The Almond turnover is the perfect thing for “frangipane” lovers like me. You have the almond filling with the pastry dough, a little more puffed than the one for the galette, which is really nice. I think that’s a good idea because usually we can only findapple turnover.

Tarte aux fruits

15 Mar

I tried a fruit tart. It looked like my grand-mother’s apple cake but with pears, so i wanted to try it, but i was quite disappointed with the taste. We can barely taste the pears because the almond powder is too strong. So it’s more like an almond powder tart. The dough with the almond is quite heavy too and there’s too much syrup for me on the tart. Bad choice at Lalos this time.

Almond cakes

9 Nov

I’m getting obsessed with almonds. Why? Because one of my friends told me that she had eaten a Taiwanese cake with ‘frangipane’ inside. I love frangipane and since this year it’s gonna be hard to find the most famous cake having it (the  Twelfth Night cake), i’m looking for it everywhere i see almonds.


However once again i was tricked by the mooncake, and the whole egg yolk inside. Too bad. I lost.

So i tried another one, not a mooncake but a plain one with almonds. Heavy, and with a weird taste. definitely not frangipane. I still have to look for it.

Almond Milk Tea

26 Oct

I’m not into drinks here, since i still think that water and coffee are the best drinks ever and they’re not too sweet like most of the drinks here. 

However, i sometimes like to have Almond Milk Tea (or without the tea it’s even better). You can find it easily, choose if you want it cold or hot, with or without sugar, and that’s super yummy. It’s easy to find a place that sells it, because of the flavor. You can smell almond 500meters around, and i love that.

It’s less popular than Bubble tea, but i prefer it. And now that i saw it and how it works, i can make some at home since it only need almonds!

Taiwanese Almond yoghurt jelly

1 Oct

I tried this desert because i had already tasted a sample of almond milk and it was pretty good. So i wanted to see if this yogurt (which is actually between a jelly and a yoghurt) would be the same.

How was it? You know the lotions you use for your skin with almond flavor? Well, try to think eating the same taste. I really like it. but again the flavor wasn’t strong enough. I suppose that comes with the country, since even chocolate is often tasteless here. They gave me some mango purée to put on it, but almond milk and mango…i don’t know, i prefer almonds alone.

The texture of the yogurt is really jelly like and pretty hard to eat (like every jelly i’d say). Maybe i’ll eat some again.
