This was the start to the almond croissant hunt. PAUL Cafe has some really great bakery items. And considering the fact that it’s a French bakery and restaurant, it wouldn’t disappoint and so M had the idea to start off this fun little journey there.
We have done this hunt twice, and each time the croissant was a bit different from the other.
Texture: ranged from somewhat fluffy to dense, but the exterior was quite flaky. The addition of almond shavings on the top gave it some more texture.
Filling: it’s definitely closer to T’s favourite as it had just enough almond paste, but the first time around the consistency was off as the mixture was lumpy. The taste is a bit more marzipan, but the sweetness was very much on point.
All in all, a nice almond croissant and a really good way to start things off.
On a side note this goes really well with PAUL’s hot chocolate, which is T’s favourite in town. Its rich, thick and fulfilling. Definitely a great combination.
