If you cant have bread it’s ok there’s Au Bon Pain
#invite #newmenutasting #ABPWinterHotties
Was invited for tasting their new varieties of bread, cakes and dessert.
Here’s a glimpse of what we tasted
Roasted Vegetables, Eggs & Mozzarella – roasted vegetables, eggs & mozzarella with red pepper pesto on toasted ciabatta.. I liked this one. Its a quick eat and hunger relief
Available in veg version as well
Harvest Chicken Salad – Grilled chicken with balsamic tahine, roasted spiced pumpkin, feta cheese, toasted almonds & pumpkin seeds on assorted greens. It came with a very strange tasting dressing alongside. However when eaten with the salad it had a balanced taste. Dont try eating the dressing by itself !!
There is a veg version too
Peri Peri Chicken Sandwich – A misnomer as there there was nothing peri peri about it. Average sandwich at best
Mulled Wine – This was brilliant. Warm and teasing the palate as it sensuously goes down your throat. My absolute recommendation. Err not alchoholic so dont get too excited eh 🙂
Passion Fruit Bubble Tea – Frankly I have had better but this is a fin drink with the bubbles rising through the straw and exploding in a “passion”ate frenzy in your mouth.
There is a strawberry version too. Good for people with a sweet tooth
Dark lava meltdown – It came with this weird looking whipped cream on top which tasted as weird as it looked. The cake was a little too dense for my taste as well
Double Chocolate CroisBun – This was wonderful. I loved the flavor and it is best had hot!!
Monkey Bread – As strange named as it looked, the tase thankfully was better. The one with the chocolate coating is my preference
Toffee Latte – This would appeal to the kids with its sweeeeeeeeeettttt flavor and finish
All in all a decent experience. They do need some experience with dips and creams though and have a long way to go to master it.
