Food lovers, it’s time to discover Maxence Barbot’s new tea time at Shangri-La Paris. For you this sublime gourmet snack just divine, comfortably installed under the beautiful glass roof of the Bauhinia.
Fancy a sweet break? And if we made ourselves one of the best tea times from the capital? After a vanilla version and a Christmas version, the new tea time of Maxence Barbot or more precisely his to taste since it is only composed of sweet, now opens its arms to us within the Bauhinia to Shangri La Paris.
Open to all, the Saturdays and Sundays from 2.30 p.m. to 6 p.m.this afternoon tea has something to seduce us. And the new version, which changes with the seasons, will make you crack, no doubt.
We start by choosing a hot drink: cappuccino, refined tea or even hot chocolate greedy to dilute at your convenience, that’s a good start.
We then go on our side to the plate of pastries but you are free to start with the plate of your choice. On the program of our visit, the Rhubarb cheesecake that awakens the taste buds, a laminated super crispy real blueberries with its coulis inside and a Tropézienne who has pep with lime zest, orange blossom and pollen.
We then move on to cakes and pastries. We fall for the Just apricot turnover divine, very crispy on the outside with the tangy compote as we like. The Diamond pie with melting pistachio, caramel and hazelnut praline is to die for.
Finally, we end with the big bottom piece that changes according to the seasons. As we pass, it’s a Cottage cheese tart and glazed cherries who reaches out to us. Crispy and crunchy, we like the tangy sweetness of cottage cheese which marries perfectly with the freshness of good crunchy and pitted cherries.
You have to count 55€/person Where 100€ for 2 to share a gourmet moment in a prestigious place! You can also opt for the champagne version at €75 each or €140 for two. Go there with your eyes closed, these pastries are just delicioustasty and so well mastered, enough to make you succumb!
Note that Maxence Barbot also offers a fine menu of pastries à la Bauhinia, to accompany with a hot drink.
So that tells you an excellent tea time or a sweet break friends?
