Patisserie La Douceur (Taipei)
We were walking around the Yong Kang Street area a couple of months ago on a rainy evening when we stumbled across a fine looking French patisserie called La Douceur. Even though we only just had dinner, the uber enticing cakes on display lured us in.
Judging from the diplomas on the wall I assume the chef learned his or craft in France, where the big shots of pastry making are. They certainly looked as good as anything I’ve seen in Europe.
I’ll stop typing now and just let the photos speak for themselves.
The coffee was good and the cakes were sensational. The Mont Blanc was up there amongst the best I’ve had (and I’m not even much of a chestnut guy) and the Tahiti was refreshingly different. I loved the sourness of the berries and the light sweetness of the vanilla mousse. A perfect combo.
Can’t wait to go back there and test out the rest of their delicious cakes and macarons (you can check them out here).
