Angelina Paris – Mont Blanc Obsession

The Paris originated tearoom, Angelina, has been on my wish list since her launch in IFC Mall. The exquisite and vintage design has made here one of the best cafes with some sense of romanticism. Not to mention their gourmet confectioneries, make sure you come in daytime, unlike me, for more options.

The iconic pastry, Mont-Blanc, with a twist of praline has been uniquely made in the Angelina paper cup. It consists of crunchy egg white based meringue, stiff cream, sweet praline center and most significantly, the swirl of chestnut puree. Personally I think it’s has the correct sweetness provided that many comments criticized on it. The choux pastry, named after two countries, has great butteriness, chewy and filled with a ferrero rocher like praline cream. The pecan has added extra crunch to this impressive dessert.

The famous hot chocolate that is made with three kinds of qualified cocoa should not be missed. With its distinct thickness and chocolate sourness, the hot chocolate is exceptionally fulfilling and you might imagine drinking a cup of chocolate ganache. I highly suggest to share between the two.
