Eclairs are the labour of love, but the reward is decadent mouthful of crisp pastry oozing creamy custard.
Look around L’ECLAIR pastry cases and you may notice something new; it’s the first eclair boutique cafe in Singapore that produces freshly made eclairs with bold, bright and unexpected flavours. The best of all, they are aesthetically pleasing to the eye and very Instagram photo-worthy.
There’s little not to like about the gorgeous looking and decadent tasting choux pastries that have given much attention to me when I tried L’ECLAIR last year. The easy-to-eat dessert pastries are filled with sweet creams and topped with meringue, caramel or sculpted slabs of chocolate, as well as other seasonal fillings and toppings.
L’ECLAIR serves up to 10 eclair flavours each day, priced from $7.50 to $8.50 inclusive of 7% gst and no service charge.
The Matcha and Earl Grey eclairs (below) I had were made from high quality ingredients such as imported French butter, premium matcha and earl grey tea and quality chocolates.
