The millefeuille (means thousand leaves in French) was served in quite a large portion, since it’s pretty rich with sticky chocolate mousse consistency layering and a caramel/chocolate glaze atop, best shared with your companion. And a hot drink to wash it down is recommended.
Taste wise was alright, nothing fantastic nor nothing bad too. Certainly couldn’t find the same at other local French patisseries.
Long black coffee S$4.60++ (no picture), tasted decent, liked the acidity and thickness with it.
Paul bakery is from France, yes.
It is an extensive chain throughout not only Paris and Europe, but also all over the world including Dubai, Japan and etc.
It’s funny that we ignored Paul chain bakeries (for good reason) during our stay in Paris at all times.
However, seeing its first ever branch setting up in Singapore since end of 2011, I was anticipating it.
At least, I get to have a slice of Parisian bakes somehow to curb my longing for another Paris trip, for a little while.
Croque Madame S$17.90++ (no picture, too eager to eat)
We came here hungry, for a late lunch as the first meal of the day.
He said this one hit the spot for him, the ‘hat’ (fried egg) was quite under cooked where you could still see transparent membrane around the runny yolk. We were ok with it. It was the first ever croque madame we had.
Seems like it’s a pork-free establishment, I see turkey bacons, turkey hams in place of the real ones.
I heard from a friend that Paul London served good hot chocolate. So, why not try the one in Singapore too?
We had the whipped cream version. And I was very happy with the serving size, a large glass mug!
The hot chocolate itself was on the sweet side, but thick and nutty. Yup, if you’re a thick hot chocolate fan, come here for a treat if not Brunetti (which’s my top favourite in SG).
Umm, will I be back here? Not sure. I will probably just take away the small macarons to try out.
I will prefer Hediard over Paul in Singapore anytime for the same French fare.
