L’éclair by Sarah Michelle – A trendy twist on the French classic
Macarons? Cupcakes? That’s passé because eclairs have taken over the pastry world. Honestly, I don’t think we have really caught on the eclair trend, unlike New york nor Paris. With the closure of KARAFURU, there is probably only left with one eclair cafe in Singapore – L’éclair by Sarah Michelle.
Graduated from the internationally acclaimed Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, the girls really bake pretty looking eclairs, each filled with a different cream and bursting with flavour. Being a huge fan of Ispahan ($8.50), it is almost firm that this is going to be my favourite eclair. I very biased one lah! Filled with light rose cream, fragrant lychees and fresh raspberries on a soft choux puff, it’s creates a delicate explosion of flavours for a perfect balance.
The Roasted Pistachio & Strawberries Eclair (SGD$8.00) carries a light pistachio cream with bits of strawberries on top. It has a subtle nuttiness combining the tanginess from the strawberries. I prefer the pistachio cream to be stronger.
There are also other interesting flavours such as Earl Grey, Mango Passionfruit, Salted Caramel, Hazelnut Praline, 66% Dark Chocolate, Lemon Meringue etc. Sometimes, they have special flavours as well. When I visited the cafe in April, they had Kaya Pandan flavour which we love and hope they will bring it back soon.
Other than the eclairs, they also have Quiche Lorraine filled with bacon and Swiss Gruyere cheese. Served with a generous portion of house salad with citrus vinaigrette, it is available ala carte or in our all-day tea set for 2.
They have launched a new Matcha Azuki eclair filled with rich matcha cream, home made azuki paste and home made mochi balls. Can’t wait to try it soon!
