For those who dedicate an extra-large portion of their blog to the insatiable appetite for discovering newly opened restaurants and cafe, it's proverbial that we still have an all-consuming penchant for dessert-lovers' all-time favorites from Fleur De Lys Patisserie. This pastry shop have been there since 2006 (referenced from Lori's DCF blog). And I'm thinking why haven't I read or heard about it long before.
After attending a restaurant review with fellow bloggers at Timog Ave., I made it a point to make a short walk to Tomas Morato, to stop by and comb my fork over the known cafe to sample some of their pastry offerings.
What actually made me hover over the internet to search for Fleur De Lys is their Florentines, which was given to us during the WOFEX 2013 media dinner at Azuthai.
Eureka! The packaged Florentines were there. I also got a box of assorted oval-shaped bars.
At the second floor, as I waited for my coffee and choice pastry, I get to snap some shots from it.
It was simple, no fuss and taitless - a tad boring for me though.
Most of the time my curiosity for certain dining establishments goes beyond it's menu. I love reading or listening to stories of how it was built up, why the choice of name or how the owner's character was depicted in their craft.
The Fleur de Lis mimeos a lily or lotus flower. It is often used to represent French Royalty, and is believe to symbolize life, light, and perfection. However, I find it hard to get connections from the name to the whole theme of the pastry shop.
Dillinger's, a molten (also known as lava cake) chocolate cake served with vanilla ice cream.
Here are my blogs for the chocolate cakes that have captured my heart:
Nono's Chocolate Oblivion at Classic Confessions
Chocolate Celebration by Park Avenue Desserts
My Pink Wasabi's Sugar-free Flourless Chocolate Cake and Truffle cups
Casa San Luis Le Grand Chocolat
What makes this worth-trying is having a layer of beautifully stacked up cakes and creams in one fork-bite. Let me deconstruct the layers for you. From top to bottom: vanilla chiffon cake, chocolate mousse, vanilla chiffon cake, yema cream, chiffon cake and custard.
For the non-chocolate-lovers, if there is one, this can probably caught their attention and might gain their liking. I found this to be particularly best partnered with green tea or black tea. I'm not the cream-lover either, so I can't count myself to rave about this.
If you ask if I will still come back to try their other pastry, I say yes! I want to try their Picasso Pavlova and Pocket Garden (or simply carrot cake).
