    Maison Kayser & Jewels artisan chocolate

    This entry was supposed to be posted on 24 Mar but due to hectic schedule, it will only be posted now.

    <24 March 2012>

    Before heading for the movie, This Means War, I paid a little visit to this Paris/Japan pâtissier at the recently opened Scotts Square, Maison Kayser.

    My brunch consisted of

    • Bread Basket – an assortment of bread with a single refill, coupled with blueberry jam and butter (S$4.90)
    • Tarte Citron (S$4.40)
    • Vanilla Eclair (S$3.90)

    The assortment of bread did have an interesting selection with nuts, but I am not a big fan of nuts so I am only fond of some of the bread in the basket. Fan of bread with nuts, you shall enjoy it more than I do.

    Besides nuts, I am not a fan of sour acidic stuff. And this means their Tarte Citron. It was extremely sour and I could not even finish it even after 5 glasses of cold water. Compared to Canelé, well this is too unbearable.

    Despite the less than enjoyable 2 dishes, Maison Kayser does have a wonderful item that will entice me to return, that is Vanilla Eclair. This is a strongly recommended item for sweet loving people as the vanilla was smooth and unlike those chocolate eclair, the vanilla does not leave stains onto one’s teeth. It does come in various flavors besides vanilla. So I guess my future visit will revolve around eclair and bread without nuts.

    So my spurge continued with a visit to Jewels artisan chocolate, at Orchard Central and bought 4 of their macaron – Brun, Butterscotch, and their 2 recommended flavors, Korean black Garlic and Black Palm Island Salt.

    I must say Brun and Butterscotch and Black Palm Island Salt tasted alright, though the saltiness of Black Palm Island Salt macaron lasted in my mouth for a while.

    As for the recommended Korean black Garlic, I can only say that those with a sweet tooth should avoid at all cost. It has a peculiar taste, like a mixture of the bitter ginseng and slight spiciness of garlic. It tasted like Chinese medicine in a way that totally removed all those pleasant taste from my previously eaten macaron. I am extremely glad that I did not start off with this flavor else I will have problem tasting the others.

    The above is a review of your average lady who has a freaking appetite for sweet pastries.
