Pâtisserie Glacé's Mont Blanc

Our next dessert hunt was Pâtisserie Glacé, which was known for their authentic Japanese pastries. This recommendation was screaming in our cbox from the courtesy of HuiYuan and was only opened in November 2008, I was indeed surprised by the nice praises posted on HGW and thus was determined to drop by the shop as soon as possible.

Chinatown Plaza

Unlike Sun Moulin and Tampopo Deli being located in buzzling shopping malls, Pâtisserie Glacé was well-hidden in a quiet corner of Chinatown.

Our visit will be split into 4 entries (as usual) so that it will be easier to be searched by category and first and foremost, we will kick start the series of entries with Pâtisserie Glacé's bestseller, Mont Blanc.

Array of cakes

After being featured in the Sunday times (January 4, 2009), Mont Blanc has gained its popularity even more than before. As described, this light-as-air cake topped with chestnut puree is Pâtisserie Glacé's best item and the surprise that awaits anyone is its whole chestnut in the centre.

A Japanese perennial favourite.
Pâtisserie Glacé import the best chestnut from Japan paired with the most delicious chestnut paste from France makes this Mont-Blanc hard to beat.
This could be the best Mont-Blanc this side of paradise!

Of course, we don't just stop at one cake... here are the remaining entries...
1. Choco Renga
2. A paradise of strawberries
3. Rin Rin Cheese Tart

Fen's comments

This is my first encounter with Mont Blanc and I have to admit I love its light sponge and the chestnut mousse. However, for chestnut lovers, the chestnut flavour isn't strong and thus I would prefer their other creations more than this.

Yuan's comments

Without reading the descriptions, I really could not tell what I was eating. To me it was simply fresh cream with sponge cake. Little did I realise there was chestnut. I guess its generally not bad for a sponge cake but it does little to curb my dessert craving.

Hehe, it is possible as the cakes are light and delicious... I only know of Chinatown Plaza just last Saturday...

I am never a fan of chestnut but Patisserie Glace adopts a more refreshing than chestnutty taste. Will let u know what is my preference on Sat since we ordered a Mont Blanc from Centre Ps... can compare...
