Boulangerie

After our disappointing dim sum session at The Dining Room, it was decided that we would give Resorts World another chance by patronising their specialty dessert cafe, Boulangerie, located level two of Festive Hotel.

Macarons

Boulangerie turned out to be a disaster as well. I will not say much except that the macarons were Bakerzin quality and retailed for $2.30 instead of a dollar. The shells weren't crisp and tasted very stale. The other desserts purportedly had an Asian "twist" to them but some of them just turned out plain weird. Case in point, the Satin, a coconut cream dessert topped with pineapple. It tasted like Thai salad to me, which was just unnerving considering that its dessert. The raspberry tarte had a base that reminded me of compressed Danish cookies which would have been fine until you consider how hard it was. It was literally steel against rock as I tried to spear a piece of the tart with my fork.
Only consolation of this place? They serve complimentary sky juice.

technically, they can't call themselves a boulangerie. boulangeries are bakeries that make their own doughs for breads and pastry. They are patissiers, if they use that name in France, they will be closed down if they don't change their shop name! Hah.
