Patisserie Paris Je T’Aime

What a lovely surprise when we finally opened the door of this tiny shop we had passed by late at night over a year ago! The wonderful smell of fresh buttery puff pastry permeated the air, and we saw, upon closer inspection, beautifully elaborate works of art in the chilled pristine display cases. Just look at this feast for the eyes!

Fruity Champagne Mousse – Champagne Mousse, Yuzu Lemon, Guava, Lychee, and Raspberry

The recently-discovered French light almond meringue-based confection, “macarons”(from the Italian “maccherone” or fine dough), are a total fascination here. Pastel macarons galore decorate the cases with delicate and unique buttercream flavors like Lemon Basil, Hazelnut Vanilla, Green Tea Matcha, Dark Chocolate, Caramel, Orange Blossom Ginger, Pistachio and Rose Jasmine Darjeeling!

Madame Huynh Hongnga, Patissier
Hongnga (“Nga”) Huynh Rogers, the most obviously talented proprietor, is not only a Patissier, but a Glacier, Chocolatier, and Confiseur, having received her Certificat D’Aptitude Professionnel from the Academie de Paris, a short eight years ago.  She is gracious, modest and demure with an underlying fortitude, knowing that she is superb at what she does. Since our visit, we have discovered several other “friends” who know of and love the place, but have kept this delicious secret to themselves. 😉
