I thought I gave up this search after deciding France is the only place to get a worthy one but i've fallen off the wagon and taken up the cause again after having a couple of decent ones in London of all places. In researching new venues I came across I couple I missed the last time, Flour and Quebrada. Also saw a glowing review and impressive photo of one from Lyndelle's (huh, what?) slathered with generous almond goodness inside. That's what I'm talkin' about.
My gripe is that the almond is almost always nonexistent, save for a couple of sliced almonds thrown on top. Just this weekend I threw 2 in the trash from a place in Concord NH, Bread and Chocolate. Cardboard with trace elements of something almond-ish. An abomination.
Most recently had one from MA France, supplied by Pain d'Avignon, and one from Iggy's. Iggy's won that face off.
Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? Well, I guess that makes me guilty of almond madness. Anyone else?
