Lalos – Tea Bread & Honey Fig bread

3 Apr

New products at Lalos, so i tried (you know me, i never take the same thing twice). Tea bread….i’m really not convinced by this one. I personally think that it lacks salt. The tea flavor is really strong, so if you like tea, it’s ok, but i think it’s pretty hard to eat it with anything because the flavor is a way too strong to go with anything else.So either way you eat it alone, or you can try with sweet things like jam maybe, but i never eat jam, so i can’t really say if it’d be nice.

Fig and Honey bread is better though. Better than the fig milkbread and tastier than the honey bread. A good one!

I also saw thet they released a new “chausson aux pommes” (apple turnover) but with banana filling.

Lalos – again and again…-

After trying all their cakes (marble, orange, banana, fruits), and most of their breads (ciabatta, ciabatta with olives, seaweed ciabatta, olive oil ciabatta, ciabatta with herbs, garlic bread, cheese bread, bacon bread, longuet, ficelle, baguette, cramberry bread, grape bread, whole bread, cereal bread,…and i think that’s all for breads) , the bakery is developping new ones, so i can have some fun! And ruin myself even more!


This week, they created the onion bread. Hum, mine was too cooked so it spoiled the onion flavor a little, but it smelled damned good. I would also add more onion to stronger the flavor, but i love onion in general, so that might also explain why it’s not string enough for me.

Another one was the soft cristallized lemon bread. What i loved is that there was real lemon inside, which gave a really ince flavor. However the bread was a little too soft (you can’t cut properly it it you don’t have a bread knife), but i know that Taiwanese people prefer soft bread, so the company has to adapt itself to their taste.

I also tried a Pain au chocolat: really nice. The chocolate taste is here, with the 2 stripes, and the pastry puff is crumbly, but not too much, so that you don’t loose your “pain” in crumbs and end up eating only half of it. However the croissant was not as good as the pain au chocolat. The pastry puff is a little too compact and not melting enough (but i guess this has to do with the butter).
So if you have the choice between the two, i would recommand the pain au chocolat over the croissant.

They also improved their honey bread, making a soft version of it for Taiwanese (since they don’t seem to enjoy real bread).
If you have foie gras, the best choice is the Cramberries bread, very good with a nice sweet taste which matches perfectly with it.

Each week you have special offer: last week, with their new honey bread, you had a slice of their banana cake, this week you have a discount if you buy the onion bread.

Lalos 2

13 Nov

Again i went to Lalos shop. I needed some bread for Foie Gras, so i took 2: the Longuet and honey bread. With this, i tried the plain biscuit and a flan.

The Longuet is really good alone in fact. It’s too strong to go with Foie Gras, but i loved its aroma. Crispy as it should be. Yum Yum. Better than the one i usually buy in Paris.

The Honey Bread. Also really nice and goes well with the Foie Gras. The honey flavor isn’t too strong and sweet, so it just gives a little touch to the bread. Also really good, but i prefer the Longuet for everyday meals.

Biscuit. Hum, it seems that Lalos isn’t good at baking biscuit. The Palet breton wasn’t that good last time, and this plain sablé was really not interesting at all. I forced myself to finish it. Not good, it doesn’t have any taste.

The Flan. Nice one, the pastry was a little hard which was great, but i prefer flan a little less cooked. But i had trouble to ask for it. I mean, it was written “flan” at the counter, so i said it normally, but the women made me repeat 3 times and then she pointed at an “éclair”. Huuum, yeah, that’s nearly that… ^^” that’s nice to show off how frenchy the bakery is and use a lot of French terms, but if it crumbles down at the first word you pronounce for a cake, i don’t see the point of doing it. Just to say (yeah yeah, i love to criticize again, i know).
