At Xintiandi, you will find French Pastry chef, Christophe Adam's latest outpost for L’Éclair de Génie. L’Éclair de Génie features gourmet éclairs that come in favours like raspberry pistachios, salted caramel, yuzu meringue and pecan vanilla.
Similar to Grinch Babe at Ambi Cafe, this dessert has a nice green tea flavour and fragrance. The matcha ice cream is sandwiched between the buttery puff. Delicious crushed almonds were sprinkled atop the dessert. I loved the matcha ice cream which was neither sweet in sugar nor strong in matcha. The proportion was just nice. Matcha dessert - you rock! Food rating: 4/5
éclair comprises of strawberry cream, red glaze and almond paste. Beautifully decoration as a strawberry, the dessert was sweet and the puff has a nice fragrance. Somehow, compared with the green tea custard puff, I love the green tea better. The strawberry did not suit my taste.
