Paul in Ngee Ann City has always been busy with shoppers looking for a place to rest their tired legs before proceeding to more shopping. Since Covid-19, it is not as crazy.
Paul is a French chain of bakery/café restaurants established in 1889 in the town of Croix, in Nord of France, by Charlemagne Mayot. It specializes in serving French products including breads, crêpes, sandwiches, macarons, soups, cakes, pastries, coffee, wine, and beer.
Now, you will order using an online menu, pay online and then wait for the food to be served. And because of restriction, it is almost impossible to get table for more than 4 persons.
The melon tea was the specialty tea of the day. It has that artificial honeydew taste that one would associate with Japanese melon cakes and ice cream. I prefer the classic lemonade with peppermint.
Green asparagus with smoked turkey breast, cherry tomatoes, half-boiled egg, parmesan cheese shavings, and hollandaise dressing. Much to our surprise, the centre yolk is still liquid.
Roulade de Poulet
Sliced up rolls of baked chicken stuffed with spinach in pumpkin puree and roasted potato topped with mustard sauce, served with mixed greens. A very light and full meal.
Paul has an in-house bakery, with excellent French sweets like macarons and sweet bread, and a buttery croissant.
