In conjunction of the coming Christmas season, many bakeries have come up with various types of attractive pastries to draw in more customers. As a pastry lover, I never stop going round the town to look for new inventions to enrich my pastry eating journey. One of the bakeries that impresses me the most with its innovative and passion about pastry is La Promise.
On my way back to Ipoh, I exit at the Changkat Jering interchange to send one of my colleagues home. I chanced along Theatre Road and saw the striking signboard of La Promise. Abby told me that a handful of new pastry has been introduced recently namely Lemon Meringue Pie, Apple Crumble Tart, Opera Cake, Minced Pies etc. I was already salivating when she mentioned about the word 'PASTRY'. I went into the shop but was disappointed because almost 90% of the pastry was sold out. May I be so bold as to ask to change the idiom 'selling like hotcakes' to 'selling like hot pastries'?Without much choice, I bought a fruit tart and a mini Lemon Meringue Pie. The lemon meringue pie was so tiny that you can easily insert the whole piece of it into your mouth. The sweetness of the meringue, the sourness of the lemon custard and the crispiness of the pastry are simply irresistible. I can easily wolf down half a dozen if I don't need to watch my diet. It's definitely one the best lemon meringue pie I've ever tasted.
