DALLOYAU which used to offer just Macarons and cakes now serve a good range of comfort dishes at the new Pacific Place branch on the third floor.
The cake selection is as good as always and it is impressive that they have a gluten free cake as a choice.
As it was a cold day, we started with soups:
Parisian vegetable soup:
To most people, it looks like finely diced vegetables but I really liked it because it was light and tasty consomme.
Onion soup with cheese toast:
The onion soup was also good because it was sweet with a concentrated onion taste that wasn't too salty.
Lobster salad Religieuse:
This was a savory version of the Religieuse dessert, the top choux is stuffed with avocado while the bottom choux is filled with lobster.
duck confit opera:
This is a close up to show the beautiful layers.
Norwegian salmon roll:
The salmon roll is so much more stunning than the photo because it is wrapped in a delicious clear savory jelly.
In the middle there is a poached egg with a runny yolk which makes it evilicious and gives it a surprise to someone who is having it for the first time.
The gem lettuce on the side has been drizzled with lemon juice so it is really appetizing.
Duck leg confit:
Next was the signature duck leg confit, the meat was soft and supple that it came off the bones easily.
I had to get the Croque Monsieur because I just love cheese and ham.
Finished with a scones because scones and cream are irresistible.
Also had other cakes and drinks.
The Earl Grey and chocolate was a wonderful hot drink to end dinner.
