La Chocolatine, Langkawi, Malaysia





La Chocolatine came recommended to us by a number of friends as serving the best pastries in town. Upon arrival in the late afternoon there was still a dribble of return expatriates purchasing their favourties for the day. We soon learned that one of the partners in the boulangerie is French. Apparently he insists that only French butter be used and that all recipes maintain their integrity with no adaptation for local taste buds, essentially keeping the authenticity of the products. We were very happy with a flaky moist seraphic Chocolate Almond Croissant and a curvaceous vibrant gold feather-like and buttery classic Croissant. Accompanied by Real Hot Chocolate (made with milk and melted chocolate - no powdery substitutes) the afternoon snack was a blissful pick me up. Also serving crepes, coffee, desserts and crusty bread, it could be a deserving place to return for a light European style breakky.

    1. They have a whole range of sweet and savoury crepes. The one is the picture is a simple sugar crepe. After the croissants and hot chocolate we thought we better keep it simple :-)
