Poilane, Pimlico, London (Galette des Rois in season)

limster | Jan 4, 201011:08 AM

An outpost of the well known French bakery.

Excellent classical pain au choc -- gently crispy exterior, remarkably light and puffy on the inside, with evenly distributed wisps of pastry, and a soft vein of liquid chocolate, the consistency of nutella. A textbook example of this pastry, exemplary quality, yet at £1.20, costing no more than a generic version.

Galette des Rois is in season now, delicate almond/frangipane encased in light, crisp puff pastry. Also worth getting.
