Shop/Food Review

Ms Teatime Says:

I have always been a fan of eclairs, even if they are just simple ones found at neighborhood bakeries. You know those with custard cream wrapped in a soft and thin pastry glazed with cheap chocolate? So when I heard about L’éclair by Sarah Michelle, an eclair specialty cafe, I was tempted to check it out.

 
L’éclair Shop Interior

While located in town, L’éclair is situated a little off the beaten track, a short walk away from the popular Orchard Road shopping belt. In exchange, guests are treated to a less crowded space with some greenery view. I like the overall ambiance, which exudes class without being too intimidating.

Although the setup looks fancy and each regular eclair costs a whopping S$7.50 to S$8.50 (compared to S$3 at neighborhood bakeries), the upmarket feels are made less daunting by the smiley and friendly servers, free ice water (self serve basis) and Nett prices (no service charge).

After tasting the eclairs, I could understand why I am paying more for them. The use of fresh and quality ingredients is apparent since the eclairs do not taste artificial or overly sweet (to me sugar is often excessively used to mask the lack of real food flavours). Choux pastry, though not very crisp, has good bite and is not soft and soggy like the cheaper ones. In addition, the beautiful handcrafted eclairs are considerably big (13 cm in length) and very generously filled.

Apart from the typical chocolate eclair, there are also at least 9 other flavours on offer each day. From the Classics (Salted Caramel/Vanilla/Hazelnut) to Best Sellers (Ispahan/Banana) to Seasonal Ones (Pistachio/Earl Grey/Mango & Passionfruit/Jivara Milk Chocolate), I was so spoilt for choice!

While I was there, I also noticed other tables enjoying a 3-tiered High Tea Degustation Set (which includes mini eclairs, savoury canapes and 2 drinks). I am likely to return for this. If you are keen, do note that pre-order is required.

[Classic] Dark Chocolate (S$8 Nett), [Seasonal] Mango & Passionfruit (S$8 Nett)
[Classic] Dark Chocolate & Cocoa Streusel (S$8 Nett)
Rich and not too sweet! But this is more suitable for sharing!
[Seasonal] Mango & Passionfruit (S$8 Nett)
Slightly tangy and perfect for solo consumption.
[Seasonal] Pistachio (S$8 Nett), [Best Seller] Ispahan (S$8.50 Nett)
[Seasonal] Pistachio (S$8 Nett)
I love the real taste of nutty pistachio in this! Not too sweet. No artificial essence detected.
[Seasonal] Pistachio (S$8 Nett)
[Best Seller] Ispahan (S$8.50 Nett)
Looks super sweet but it's not! The lightly scented rose lychee mascarpone pairs well with the tangy raspberries & almond marzipan.
[Seasonal] Earl Grey (S$8 Nett)
The earl grey flavour is distinct without being overpowering.
[Seasonal] Earl Grey with Milk Chocolate & Blueberries (S$8 Nett)
Nice flavour but will be better if there is more cream within the choux pastry.
[Best Seller] Banana (S$8 Nett)
[Best Seller] Banana & Walnut Streusel (S$8 Nett)
Overall, this is not bad, just not outstanding compared to the other flavours.
[Best Seller] Banana & Walnut Streusel (S$8 Nett)
I love the crumbly walnut streusel but will prefer a stronger banana flavour.
Flat White (S$5 Nett)
Earl Grey Latte (S$5.50 Nett)
