I'll check it out in the next few days. Thanks, ppilot.
I'm so happy with my selection today and that this patisserie is available on this side of the river.
For my first visit, I selected 2 kouign amann, vanilla cheesecake, peach croustade, and a cup of coffee made with Heart Roaster beans.
As you saw from the links provided by ppilot , Baron Kim, the owner, has a very artistic and elegant hand in decorating his pastries.
The kouign amann and croustade had the crispy, delicate layers in the exterior, soft buttery interior with the thinnest vanilla cream layer and finished with a thin, sugary crust. I carefully re-heated the second k.a. the following day and it was still very good.
The vanilla cheesecake was silky smooth with little blueberries hidden within, and the crust was fresh with a nice crispness.
Every pastry was balanced in flavor and not overly sweet, perfect for my palate.
As you enter, all the selections are carefully displayed under glass. A nice collection of approx. 15?? different items: variety of croissants (also bacon and cheese), eclairs, k.a, cheesecakes, tartlettes, etc. when I visited in the morning for best selection. The prices were not listed, but my total cost was very reasonable.
The beauty of this establishment is that they make small batches and keep their product fresh and that taste really comes through. For now, it's standing room only, there are no tables or chairs. Baron Kim and his lady, who greeted me as I walked in, were very pleasant and friendly and seemed to be on a first name basis with the customers who entered after me.
Looking forward to tasting more of their menu.
