Broken Biscuits – Paris

9 août 2015 § 6 Commentaires

Do you remember when I was talking about the exquisite pastries at Honor Café, rue Saint Honoré? They are from Broken Biscuits a tiny little coffee/cake shop in the dead end street Passage Rochebrune. Cakes and pastries are freshly baked here everyday by Christine O’Sullivan who was a contestant in the Irish MasterChef.

The muffin carrot cake and the lemon pavot are beyond what you usually expect from these pastries, they are completely addictive! I don’t like lemon but Christine’s version is rich and mega moist. You can also have breakfast with a bowl of granola or lunch with quiches and sandwiches. I will try them for sure on my next visits!

If it is too far for you, you can always enjoy the pastries at Honor Café, Loustic & Fondation coffee shops. As it is a really tiny inside, try to avoid rush times.

Honor Café – Paris

1 juin 2015 § 6 Commentaires

Little gem on the elegant rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré – inside a courtyard in front of the Elysee Palace, Honor café has opened last February. The location could not be much better: the 8th arrondissement still not had a place with decent coffee and Angelle Boucher and Daniel Warburton have brought a wind of change.

The espresso was smooth, without any sourness you usually feel in french espressos, which obliges you to add sugar for hiding the unpleasant note.

Another important point for me: pastries are amazing! The chocolate cake was a huge hit, it disappeared from our plate in less than 5 minutes! The orange cake with the delicious frosting was awesome as well. If you plan to go on a shopping spree on rue Saint Honoré, don’t miss it !

Another Café Kitsune has opened on rue Condorcet. The first location is inside the Jardin du Palais Royal. Glad to see that places like that are opening in Paris! Ice creams by Martine Lambert are currently only available at the Palais Royal location.

Alex and the Coffee at AND – Seoul

21 avril 2015 § Poster un commentaire

I read in a magazine that the owner of this cafe located in Hannam-dong prepared good ice coffee. Until now, the only experience of ice coffee I had were disappointing: just water, loads of ice cube but no taste of « coffee ». With spring and warm temperatures arriving in Seoul, it was the perfect timing to give a try. Alex and the coffee best seoul cold brew travel south korea itaewonAlex and the coffee itaewon best south korea seoulAlex and the coffee is also a restaurant, which I had not the opportunity to visit but their pastries were just amazing (on the picture the salted caramel brownie), if not the best I ever had in Seoul. If pastries are that good, i can’t imagine how nice the dishes must be! alex the coffee seoul best ice travel south korea itaewonBest brownie seoul alex and the coffee south korea travelFor coffee lovers, the ice version really has the taste of coffee and not just water. They sell bottles of this cold drink if you want to take away. If you plan to go to Seoul this summer and you appreciate drinking good coffee, you now know where to go!

Cà phê in Vietnam

17 avril 2015 § 2 Commentaires

Coffee must be Vietnam’s most consumed drink: coffee shops are everywhere and it is enjoyed at any moment of the day. French introduced coffee in the 19th century and Vietnam is now among the biggest producer in the world. In vietnamese, coffee is « cà phê ». The specificity relies in the brewing method, as a metal drip filter is topped on the glass and is removed until the last drop has fallen. It reminded me of the italian coffee pot Bialetti, which makes coffee with a similar brewing method. caphe french drip vietnam saigon coffee cafe ca phe sue da propaganda

Because of the hot weather,cà phê is served with ice and for the sweet touch, condensed milk. It is then called « cà phê sữa đá », with these two ingredients. vietnam travel ca phe coffee ho chi minh propaganda coffee cafe french sue da

International coffee chains have set up in Vietnam, but none of them had cà phê on their menu. Do like locals, have your caphe prepared by the street vendors.  rooster street saigon nguyen du vietnam travel ho chi minh animal ca phe coffee french travel

Anthracite Coffee Roasters – Seoul

Located in what used to be a shoe factory, Anthracite coffee is hidden between residential buildings near Hapjeong and Seongsu station. If you are a coffee connoisseur, you will be able to appreciate carefully sourced beans in a calm atmosphere far from the hustle and bustle. anthracite coffee seoul hongdae hapjeong hip cool best travel south korea beans espresso Seoul coffee anthracite roasters best beans travel south korea  hip cool

Peer Coffee Roasters – Seoul

With Ho-Chi-Minh, Seoul is certainly the city with the most cafes per square-meter. But not all of them have good beans, and the competition on price / atmosphere is fierce. While discovering Hannam-dong, I came across this lovely place, located in a residential area. Peer coffee roast their own beans and they propose a different pastry every week. Peer coffee roasters seoul itaewon coffee best travel vegetarian hannamdong south korea
