After dinner the other night on the 6 Jan, KopiKosongGirl and I noticed that Paul’s finally open!
(Some of you already saw these photos on Twitter or Instagram when I tweeted it that day)
We thought maybe we will come back another day to try since we are so full after dinner. Somehow our legs brought us there. Yes, we are like curious cats.
We saw a lot of people, but realised they were not queuing to go in or to buy things. So we thought we will buy somethings for breakfast the next day.
Freshly made chouquettes by presumably the French bakers. Could not resist not buying them to try!
They are sold in 10s. They are $5.60.
We packed home 2 tarts. One for ourselves and one for the in-laws.
We got 2 croissants as well. They cost $2.50 each.
The next morning when we took it out, it was smelling very good! The rich buttery aroma whiffs out when we opened the paper bag that it was packed in.
The chouquettes have the crunchy pearl sugar melted!
Oh, les chouquettes are meant to be eaten the same day, but we thought we could store them till the next day, if you do, the above is what you get.
Now, I feel like making these cream puffs at home, where can I find the coarse sugar I wonder…
Oh not forgetting the Apricot Tart. $6.80
I think we did it injustice by eating it the next morning. It still tasted nice, but I guess eating it fresh at the ‘maison’ would be much better.
Heard the queues long. Hmm. Probably go there again when the queue’s not so long.
