We've dined Paul in Shanghai and Singapore previously, so it wasn't something really new for us. But after all the hype, we made our way over to Paul in the afternoon the other day with the cousins for some pastries, and boy was it bustling. We didn't have to wait too long for a table, but it was a weekday! The waiters weren't too attentive though, so it was tad difficult for us to get their attention.
Some of their bread and macarons selection. They also serve sandwiches, croque monsieur, crepes, salad and some mains; nothing too heavy and leaves enough space for some pastries.
Tarte aux myrtilles (Blueberry Tart) - 50thousand ; Eclair café - 40thousand
For the blueberry tart, it wasn't good yet it wasn't that bad either. Given the quality of the ingredients used, they were just slightly overpriced. Hey, just think of the goodness you get from the blueberries. For the first one, we had a strand of hair inside the tart; and we're were given a new one after a while.
For the coffee eclair, we'd suggest trying everything else but this. The texture is all wrong, and the fondant was a little too thick (looking kinda sloppy), which only made it taste even worst.
They've only been around for a while now, and have already been the talk of the town. Though we probably won't be back anytime soon, as they are quite pricey. Albeit serving quality food, only time will tell how long they could keep that up. So, here's to hoping they continue in maintaining their ingredients.
