Qualitea Time at Paul, Boulangerie et Pâtisserie


It's been a while since Paul opened it first branch in Indonesia, and I just visited this place days ago. French Bakery ini terletak di bagian luar Pacific Place, tepatnya persis di depan Galeries Lafayette. Tempat yang dirancang seperti cafe-cafe di Perancis ini sudah ramai dikunjungi sehak pertama kali dibuka.

Saya merasa tidak terlalu nyaman makan di tempat yang terlalu ramai apalagi jika harus mengantri, jadi terkadang saya memilih mencoba suatu tempat jika euphorianya sudah agak menurun, dan lagipula sudah ada banyak insight apakah tempat tersebut layak dikunjungi atau tidak. 

Kebetulan beberapa hari lalu seusai makan siang di Wilshire, saya memilikki waktu luang sekitar 2 jam, dan mengarahlah saya ke Pacific Place. Mau mencoba ramen yang lagi ramai itu, tapi masih kenyang dan lagipula saya sudah pernah mencobanya di negeri tetangga, jadilah saya menuju Paul, karena walaupun kenyang, perut selalu memiliki spasi untuk dessert (yang setuju katakan AMIN!)

Rupanya sampai saat ini tempat ini masih cukup ramai. Saya datang sekitar jam 2 siang dan baik bagian dalam maupun luar dari Paul dipenuhi pengunjung, tapi setidaknya saya tidak perlu mengantri karena masih ada meja yang kosong. Area indoornya tidak terlalu besar, malah menurut saya jarak antar meja terlalu sempit. So, it's a no no place to talk privately. 



Saya duduk, membolak-balik buku menu beberapa kali karena bingung mau memesan apa. Tepatnya saya ingin mencoba beberapa namun terbatas karena sedang sendirian. Akhirnya inilah yang saya pesan

English Breakfast Tea - IDR 40,000 ++


English Breakfast Tea

Paul menggunakan brand Dammann Frères untuk teh yang merupakan salah satu brand teh paling besar dan tua di Perancis.

Gourmandise - IDR 25,000 ++

Untuk pastry saya mencoba Gourmandise, pastry dengan crème pâtissière atau custard dan juga chocolate chip drops. The pastry was nice, crunchy on the outside and quite soft in the inside. Crème pâtissière-nya tidak overly manis sehingga pas di lidah saya.

Millefeuille Chocolat - IDR 50,000 ++

Setelah sekitar empat lima kali membolak-balik menu, akhirnya pilihan cake saya jatuh pada Millefeuille Chocolat. Lapisan puff pastry-nya agak tebal, namun flakinessnya pas. The chocolate custard was awesome, but the top glazing was a bit too sweet for me. But overall I love this Millefeuille Chocolat.


Yeah, I finished all of the above all alone, right after lunch and I know I need to repent. Next time, I would like to visit this place with a friend, unless the place is less crowded, I don't mind being alone and enjoy my tea time.
