ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a Girl who suddenly thought to get some extra goodies for her dear mum's birthday.
AS SHE DROVE PAST BANGSAR, she thought "Ah ha! There's that fancy new French bakery place that everyone's been blogging about." and quickly made a detour.
THERE SHE WAS, (illegally! *blush*) parked in front of Les Deux Garcons (which she thought "Strange. Shouldn't it be LE Deux Garcons? Not that my French is that great, but Les is for females right?")
- A deliciously creamy berry cake with an added interesting hint of rose fragrance, Le Demoiselle (RM 13):
ANYWAY, SHE RACED INTO THE SMALL SHOP, thinking "Yay, looks like I'm just in time!" and was told (very firmly) "We are not opened yet" as the Chef continued piping chocolate yumminess onto some of the cakes on display.
SHE LOOKED AROUND, stunned, sheepish - There was no sign "Closed" (or "Open" actually, no sign at all) on the door, so how was she to know?....
SHE QUICKLY MADE UP HER MIND, that this didn't matter - the most important thing was to stick to her mission to get the best possible cakes for her mum so she quietly apologised and waited outside the shop for the remaining 10 minutes.
(The Girl felt a little like a chastened child, being asked to wait outside the class for doing something wrong which she didn't know was wrong)
- A chocolate cake, Le Marquis (RM 13) and an Eclaire (RM 10)...
(Both were really nice with the quality ingredients evident from the texture and taste.. although I do wish the Eclair didn't burst out cream on my fingers so easily when I bit into it...)
"WE ARE OPEN NOW....", summoned the friendly waitress, "And sorry, our chef doesn't like to be disturbed", she added, softly.
THE GIRL WENT INTO THE SHOP, and quickly chose this and that from the tantalising display cabinet, then raced on home, having survived a visit to the famed new bakery, oh no, sorry, patisserie....
A SHORT DRIVE HOME LATER in her beat up (but much loved) jalopy, The Girl presented the delectable looking treats to her mother... and the happiness on her mother's face was more than enough to make up for the interesting experience (and rather hefty price tag)...
(The cakes taste good! Yummy....)
- Their famed Truffle Macaron (RM 9)..., beautiful to look at, crisp outer layer, moist filling and with a very strong truffle fragrance which you will either love of hate...
(I think I still prefer the "normal" dessert flavours... It was interesting to try this though)
So it's: Small but good range of delicious French cakes and pastries made from quality ingredients, both classic flavours and interesting twists BUT there's only 2 tables for "dine in" (open air, on the sidewalk outside) and prices are not exactly affordable......
