I get to know this French bakery, after reading the Chinese newspaper. Without thinking much, my family and I just headed over, for their fluffy bakes.
L’Epi D’Or, a bakery café, owned by the French is situated in this Zenith Corporate Park, a new building area just next to the Kelana Square and behind the Paradigm Mall. Most of the capacity in the shops is taken up as their kitchen and where the huge ovens sit, a small area for chiller and shelves for bread and pastries; as for the tables and chairs, one will have to be seated at the sidewalk (only limited chairs and tables here) and get some real sunlight in a Parisian way. French butter, Lescure is used in their baked goodies. One will get to enjoy the real pastries without hopping on a plane and fly for hours for them.
Comes to a French bakery, what must have is their Croissant (Rm 3.2)! It was fragrant and buttery. Its texture was different than the Japanese-Taiwanese bakery as their croissant was layered with more bread-liked texture. Oh, they do sell frozen dough too! You can just pop them into the oven and have the fresh baked-s at home too.
Ham & Turkey Croissant (Rm 5.5) was simply the best savoury and we ta-paoed a few home as our lunch next day. The croissant was stuffed with turkey ham and touched with some black pepper, on top were the melted cheese. The whole combination was very buttery and fragrant. I won’t mind having this for breakfast or lunch every day.
Meringue, Chocolate Roll, Chocolate Fondant, Macarons Parisien
Meringue (Rm 1.6) was prettily standing with the fresh cream liked. It was light and airy and was less sweet than I expected. Chocolate Fondant (Rm 1.2) was tad sweet to my liking. Their macarons – Macarons Parisien and Macarons Lemon are both look alike. Their macarons are at the very humble appearance, with their most original colours without touching up with rainbow colours like what the others bakeries did. Priced at Rm 3.2 each. Love the lemon one as it came with a tangy lemony flavour while the Parisien was nutty but slightly, just slightly on the sweeter side. They were pretty crunchy and airy at the same time.
Lemon Tart (Rm 3.9) was tangy, sourish and lemony! This was so my thing as I love its zesty flavour a lot.
Indulgent Cake Slice (Rm 5.5) was the chocolate mousse-liked cake. Very chocolaty but we find it a little too sweet to our liking. Still, it was a great piece to share among one another.
Hot Chocolate and Cappuccino (Rm 5.8) which has nothing to shout out about
