Another round!

Bamboo or the Matcha Tea Opéra.

You first smell the matcha tea and then the chocolate. Well-balanced, you can find all the texture, from the slightly crispy thin chocolate layer to the tea mousse to the tea powder and biscuit. I think this one is one of the best-made pastries i have ever seen and also a really beautiful one.
So what’s the problem?… I don’t like Matcha tea. So i recognize that this is a really nice one, but since i don’t like the flavor in itself, i won’t take it again.

Coffee and walnuts, it’s more famous than the bamboo pastry. However i was quite disappointed by the coffee mousse that was too sweet for me compared to a coffee cream. And i don’t know if it’s me or if it’s really like this but i thought that the coffee tasted like the Taiwanese coffee taste they use in their pastries and bread, which is sweeter and has a strong taste of coffee but doesn’t actually taste like drinking coffee. As for the walnuts, it’s really not convenient to eat the pastry since you can’t cut it because of them. The little biscuits on the top don’t bring anything special. Not really good because of the coffee mousse, but the mixture of coffee and walnuts was nice.

The vanilla-almond diamants. Just loved them, the vanilla flavor was here, it was crispy not too sweet.

Another try!

I wanted to try some other breads, but i usually want to eat special bread with a specific dish. Olive ciabatta had to go with Olive oil Tomato-Mozzarella dish. I can’t easily find ciabatta in bakeries in France so i don’t know much about this bread. It’s quite soft, but delicious with olive oil.

The nut bread had to go with goat cheese. The outside is crispy as it should be, and you have a nice flavor of nuts. I loved it. It’s better than the honey bread. I’m really glad to have found this bakery.

The marbré cake was a little too heavy for me. It’s better to buy it slice by slice, it’s lighter and less dry. Not the best cake ever. Lalos is definetely for bread and not desserts.
