Whenever I’m in London or Paris, I’ll pass by at least one Paul Bakery. But I’ve never been inclined to head in for a pastry or whatnot. Guess good old Paul has never made it into my to-eat list when there’s far too many other things to eat, heh. And now that Paul has opened in Singapore, of course I have to go there. People with nothing better to do are like that, haha.
At 9pm, there was still a very long queue outside (we stayed till closing time, hence the above pic). Why are Singaporeans eating so late these days, tsk tsk.
Anyway, we waited and waited. First, for a table. Then, for the waitress to take our orders. And then, for the food. And still we waited~
I always believe that when you are hungry, whatever you eat will taste exceptionally good. Agree?
So if we think that the mushrooms tartine ($16.50++, served warm) and roasted salmon tartine ($18.90++, served cold) are delicious, it may be just us and not the food itself.
His beef sirloin ($24.90++), served with salad and fried potatoes.
Desserts were quite a major fail. At this late hour, all the tarts and cakes I wanted to try were sold out.
Made do with a chocolate mille-feuille ($6.40++).. Pretty good creamy chocolate cream but the layers of puff pastry are plain sad. Not thin, not flaky, not light; it’s just not nice. And I shall not be mean and condemn the waffle ($4.70++) either, haha.
