Paul Bakery has opened in Singapore with much fanfare, and it’s not difficult to understand why the French boulangerie/patisserie is packed with customers everyday.
For those who have been to Europe, Paul Boulangerie is the place for them to relive those wonderful memories of having a warm croissant and a cup of coffee during winter. For others who have heard much about Paul from their friends, the new restaurant in Singapore gives them the chance to try something before they go Europe.
The question on everyone’s mind is no doubt whether Paul Boulangerie in Singapore is the same as Europe.
Let’s be realistic. It’s impossible to replicate the experience in Singapore. I mean, even if you’re just having a croissant from Paul by the roadside in Paris, it’s still going to taste better as compared to dining in the restaurant in Singapore. Everything tastes better when you are on a holiday.
We had a Lemon Tart ($6.1), Mixed Fruits Tart ($6.4), Chocolate Cake ($5.1) and Eclair Chocolat ($5.6). All of them were decent, but not blow-my-socks-off good.
That being said, I am still glad that Paul Bakery is finally in Singapore. At least now I have a place to get my Pain au chocolat while saving up for a trip to Europe. Besides desserts and bread, they also serve proper food; it is a nice all-day dining restaurant in Orchard.
