#doEUROevenbrunch “Nous voudrions deux escargots, sil vous plait” we mumbled unconfidently to the server, whilst eagerly pointing at the swirly, green-tinged pastry. Being infamously renowned and highly recommended from several reliable food sources, we knew we just had to try the PISTACHIO AND CHOCOLATE ESCARGOT from @dupainetdesidees Eyes wide, and mouths even wider, we sunk our teeth into the pastry... anticipating a euphoric gastronomical experience We imagined cracking through the flaky pastry, unleashing the pistachio-flavoured custard within its folds, and revelling in the buttery and creamy combination of flavours and textures Tragically, that is not what we got We could not taste any pistachio flavour whatsoever, it was simply a plain escargot... but a great one at that!
Albeit disappointed, we probably will come back and try it again... just to make sure ours weren’t duds. Let the snacking continue...! Du Pain Et Des Idees - Paris, France
