Angelina’s Famous Mont-Blanc a Disappointment – 226 Rue de Rivoli, Paris

In Baltics, Paris on July 5, 2011 at 8:29 pm

I’m back! Though we flew to London, our first real stop was at Paris. We wanted to try three patisseries: Angelina’s, Pierre Herme, and La Pâtisserie des Rêves (but only ended up trying one).

We chose Angelina’s as it was the closest to our hotel, the Park Hyatt Vendome, and we wanted a quick snack. They were famous for their mont-blanc, and we were excited to have our first taste (on this trip) of Parisian desserts.

The mont-blanc was extremely heavy. Compared to the light Japanese mont-blancs that we were used to, Angelina’s mont-blanc was incomparable. I had not eaten lunch that day yet, and because of the time difference had already skipped a few meals – but still I could not finish one piece of Angelina’s mont-blanc cake.

Mont-Blancs

The taste of the cake was pretty good, and I liked the thick layer of cream and meringue. However we found that the chesnut paste on top was too thick and too sweet.

After this taste at Angelina’s we had no stomach for more desserts. I would recommed trying La Pâtisserie des Rêves, their pastries look pretty good (or at least their website does: http://www.lapatisseriedesreves.com/).
