05 Mar Agathe Patisserie, South Melbourne
A visit to a café in South Melbourne was followed by a drop-in to Agathe Patisserie at the South Melbourne markets, and the enticing smell of butter filled the car on the way home.
We bought two croissants that day. I was hoping for a pandan croissant, but there weren’t any available on our visit. The plain croissant had a good, crispy and flaky shell, and the airy, spiraling interior was tender, stretchy and moist, not doughy. The rich fragrance of butter was reciprocated in taste.
The flatter lemon, ginger and almond croissant was an interesting combination of flavours that was no less delicious.
I still want to try the pandan croissant. Hopefully I’ll get the chance when I make my next visit.
