Patis­serie Bou­tique

Time Out Malaysia Eating and Drinking Guide - - PERAK -

The Parisian Patis­serie Bou­tique is a so­phis­ti­cated blend of two din­ing ar­eas. The big­ger one is in sim­ple black and white with el­e­gant black-framed win­dows while the smaller area is a more colour­ful room with ex­posed bricks and vin­tage peel­ing walls. The café is dec­o­rated with many icons of Paris – the Eif­fel Tower, the Arc de Tri­om­phe, the green climb­ing plants on the façade and Champs Élysées, which seems to have been painted as if viewed from a lux­ury apart­ment in Paris. The café serves sim­ple pas­tas and sand­wiches, with Granny’s Chicken Lasagna be­ing my favourite. It’s cheesy (per­haps even too cheesy for some) with chunky minced chicken and beau­ti­fully pre­sented with vi­brant colours where the red margherita sauce and a driz­zle of cream com­bine to give a sal­mon-pink hue. The smoked duck aglio olio is worth a try too, an aro­matic dish with garlic and spices, topped with juicy duck slices and chewy but­tery toast. For dessert, I chose the pump­kin choco­late cake be­cause I was puz­zled by the strange com­bi­na­tion of in­gre­di­ents. In fact there was barely a trace of the taste of pump­kin: The moist choco­late cake was over­whelm­ingly sweet but nonethe­less still scrump­tious. Even if you aren’t eat­ing, this is a chic lit­tle café in which to en­joy a cup of foamy cap­puc­cino with light French songs in the back­ground. 103 Jalan Sul­tan Yusuff, Ipoh (05 241 1385/www.face­book. com/Patis­serie.Bou­tique).
