L'ECLAIR by Sarah Michelle, Singapore

Eclairs from L'ECLAIR by Sarah Michelle
Stepping into this speciality éclair shop brought back fond memories of gorging on too many éclairs in Paris. They even sell the famous Paris-invented Ispahan éclair here, made with rose, lychee and raspberries. They have all of the great classics such as vanilla pecan and mango passion fruit, as well as a few Asian-inspired options such as kaya pandan made with kaya cream and crunchy coconut biscuits.
