today i am thinking about the made-to-order millefeuille by jacques genin in paris.
i can’t say i’ve tried hundreds of millefeuille to make this conclusion, but i am confident to say it must be the best in the world. or at least, in my world. the pastries were crispy, flaky, buttery,(fresh!) and the chocolate ganache inside was perfectly/naturally sweet. it is something i can’t appreciate enough after living in the states more than 10 years : everything here is way too sweet…
four mini chocolate came with our beverages,(j had green tea and i had cafe’aka espresso’) and free stuff doesn’t mean cheaper quality – they were equally delicious! i can’t believe i had a millefeuille AND two chocolate. well, you can never say no to chocolate, especially in paris!
*i almost forgot to take picture of the millefeuillle… that was the fork print you will find in above and picture below.
the interior has all my favorite cool-chic elements: exposed brick, white wall and exposed wood beam. and since it is in paris, a little valve red curtain won’t hurt.
i actually almost chocked myself when i heard the store lady told me how much total for these little guys. they are priiicey! (millefeuille was definitely more reasonable) but they were unquestionably delicious. i will still highly recommend to anyone who wants to try the best caramels.
now i am totally spoiled.
i don’t think i can be satisfied by any millefeuille serve anywhere else if not from jacques genin’s.
