Spots like these are why I made this blog, and why I so passionately wish to be a food writer. Since starting this journey, it is the first new hidden gem in my home town that was referred to me by a local. Indeed by its appearance it is unimpressive. But that’s the perfection of it – if little neighborhood secrets like these were published in the the paper, they would no longer be sacred. And so let this be a secret between you and I, a secret you convey to only the most worthy of your pastry enthusiast friends.
This French Bakery is run by a Vietnamese family. The chef has been trained in the classic French style, and truly is a master of his craft. Inside it is modestly adorned, but the goodies delight your eyes and inspire salivation.
I was instructed by the person who referred me to this secret bakery to get two specific pastries which were the best of the bunch, and I obeyed, but also decided to indulge my palate to an Earl Grey macaron.
On the left is an almond croissant with custard and chocolate inside. Even though I am not a chocolate enthusiast it was wonderful, and worth every penny. On the right is the pear tart which was my favorite. The tart was firm, and there was a very thin layer of chocolate baked into the breading of the tart. The pear was not too sweet, and perfectly cooked. The Earl Gray macaron was good, but did not necessarily taste like the tea it was inspired by, therefore I probably would not have it again.
