Flor Patisserie By Chef Yamashita

Pin It

Flor Patisserie

it was through word of mouth that we found out that chef yamashita of the famed patisserie glacé (read : gla-say) has left and opened his own shop. i don't think many people knew this at all. having heard good things about glacé, i've been wanting to visit for the longest time. but since chef yamashita has his own patisserie now, its only natural we visit this one first (and maybe glacé next time) :p

the green tea opera. i was kinda expecting this to taste more macha than chocolate but suprisingly (and somewhat disappointedly) it was the other way round.

waguri millefeuille (mont blanc with flaky pastry) was really good and easily the best among the lot in my opinion. even though the chestnut cream was on the sweet side, the whole thing actually tasted very pleasant. i love love love the millefeuille coz it was really buttery, fragrant and perfectly caramelized. this is also the first time i've tasted japanese chestnuts! yum.

the strawberry souffle was good too. it was actually kinda hard to make out if it was a souffle cheesecake or just a normal sponge cake but i did taste cheese (and the girlfriend said lemon as well).

i think i've very fortunately been having rather good desserts lately (k ki, the sweet spot @ marina bay sands as well as this) and flor is a place i wanna go back again. there are so much more other desserts to try from there. service is impeccable and chef yamashita himself is really friendly and courteous! definitely made the whole dining experience very pleasant. the only thing is perhaps me being used to seeing really modern and beautifully decorated entremets and i feel that the cake decors here are rather normal and "down to earth".
