Korean Bakery Adapts French Baking Techniques

Full Paris Baguette Cafe review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/03/paris-baguette-cafe.html


Despite its name and appearence, Paris Baguette Cafe is actually a Korean bakery / patisserie, using French pastry making techniques. Thus, you won't find Paris Baguette Cafe in the city of its name in Paris, or even throughout France. Still, Paris Baguette Cafe is an international franchise known for its creative and unique breads, pastries and desserts.

Paris Baguette Cafe is mostly a takeaway joint, although they do have some limited indoor seating. Furniture and layout is styled after the French street cafes, casual, comfortable, and brightly lit, with elegant flourishes as finishings. Decor of bread and images of France adorn the interior, and part of the attraction is the large display of their wares.

Paris Baguette Cafe is mostly a self-service place, though staff do serve orders to your table if preparation is required. In general, I find the senior staff to be patient, and rather knowledgable on the various items in the bakery, able to make sound recommendations. The junior staff however, can be a little 'blur'.

The menu at Paris Baguette Cafe is large and varied, with over 100 items available daily. The majority consists of breads, pastries, and cakes, all made using French baking / patisserie techniques. Some items are classic and traditional, while others are a modern fusion of Korean and French ingredients. Names at Paris Baguette Cafe at whimsical and playful, invoking the idea of fun. However, this premium quality also means prices here at more expensive than your average bakery.

When Sweet Potato Met Garlic is a crisp flaky pastry block, stuffed with sweet potato mash infused with garlic within. The combination of sweet and tangy flavours of the filling, and the contrasting textures of smooth and crisp make this a winner.

The aptly named Cheese Omelette With A Difference is really unique. I liked the soft, fluffy eggs and the fresh salad and spinach. The potato wedges were well cooked and slightly enhanced with herbs. But the use of feta cheese gave the overall dish a pungent odor, and unless you really like stinky cheese, stay away from this. Even though I like stinky cheese, the smell made the whole dish rather unappetizing.

Ordinary Cafe

Paris Baguette has opened a new outlet is Tampines Mall. It is located at level one of Tampines Mall and opposite Tampines Mrt station. This branch was small but more cosy feeling as compared to the branch at Wisma Atria. We ordered Olive Chess Fougas ($3), Gone with the Cheese ($7.50) and a cup of latte ($6). I would say their service still have room to improve. For more details and photos, please visit us at http://www.3fatbees.wordpress.com

Paris - palatable pastries

After hearing about ravings about Korean's bakery Paris Baguette for its freshly-baked, creative pastries for months, but having preferred to avoid the crowds back then, I finally managed to get myself into the bakery cafe for a meal! Located at 435 Orchard Road #02-48 / 53 Wisma Atria, Singapore 239977, the telephone number is 6836 2010.   Don't be fooled by the name, Paris Baguette is not a French bakery. But it does offer a very cushy setting with plushy armchairs and soothing gray hues, brightly-lit. What awed us were the rows of delicacies lining the shelves, and while I was spoilt for choice, the Buddy already knew what he wanted. I ventured around trying to make up my mind.   Now, I finally selected what I wanted and sat down to enjoy my brunch. I had wanted the Seafood Chowder in Bread Bowl, but the staff informed me that it was not ready yet. It was already 11.30am in the morning....No choice, I selected a fair-skinned beauty, the Seafood Calzone and began to dig in.   Pale and grainy looking on the outside, shaped like a miniature Calzone or curry puff, this beauty opens up to reveal chunks of fresh prawns and vegetables in a sweet mayo-like sauce. The flour is minimal, so we got to taste more of the delicious ingredients within.   Then there is my Hill Earl Grey Cake - a soft spongy delicacy of tea-flavored delight with layers of sweet cream and strawberries to add fruity hints to the flavor. The Earl Grey flavor was not too strong, so it was easy on the tastebuds and the buttery-softness practically melted in the mouth.   For more detailed information and photos, do visit: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/03/after-hearing-about-ravings-about.html

Poor service and management

What a pity that the management have no foresight to hire people with better customer Svc skills when the food is really creative and delicious. Paris baguette, you are doing a dis-service to your excellent bakers by hiring lousy front line staff. They are not polite, patient or pleasant to talk to. They look at you with a stony face and expect customers to meet their needs instead of the other way around. They don't clear tables timely but you see piles of dirty dishes piling up in a supposedly elegant cafe with flies hovering around. It's disgusting. This is at the newly opened Tampines branch. Be warned they are fussy about your dollar notes. They only accept clean bills apparently. I was told by the cashier with pink hair that her manager instructed her. At this rate, I for see that they may die a slow death like many other shops before them once the novelty wears off and the lousy service and unpleasant staff kicks in.

Great Food but extremely sucky service

For detailed review with photos, pls visit: http://musings-of-a-rabbit.blogspot.sg/2014/01/paris-baguette-wisma-atria-nice.html

Iwill only recommend this place for takeaways. Dine at the place at your own risk!
