Pastry: Buttery, but consistency of a biscuit. Hard to bite through 6/10
Presentation: Not quite right, pastry looks under baked and custard very yellow 7/10
Value for money: $6. Expensive for the size of the slice, but this is a French Patisserie after all 6/10
Overall score: 7/10
Selling at an overpriced $6 for a small, finger sized piece I took the goods away as to consume in the privacy of my own car. At first I thought the custard was going to be rancid due to its dark yellow hue, but I was pleased to discover the rich egg content of the thick, sweet custard. It held up well and oozed with each bite; the only real criticisms being the inclusion of vanilla extract and not bean and the amount of additional sugar in the mix making the custard just that bit too sweet. The pastry was unusual and made the slice very hard to tackle. It’s uncompromising rigidness made each bite really hard to chow down on, consequently loosing much custard in the process. It’s flavour was rather nice, like a buttery French biscuit, but it’s lack of flakiness was not a hit and a bit of a mess in the car. Definitely not the best in Perth (that I have managed to try at least!).
