Best Chocolate Croissants at Da Paolo Gastronomia!

Happy New Year to one and all! Hope you’ve been having a great time enjoying the 3 day long weekend!

On the 1st day of January 2012, I spent it at 112 Katong. I had lunch at Baci Italian Cafe, followed by sweet stuff at Da Paolo Gastronomia. Enroute from 1 outlet to the other, I toured all 5 floors of the building, which was very crowded with families keen to check out the new 112 Katong. Bumped into several strange people dressed in jester clothing who kept waving at me and wishing me Happy New Year. It was quite funny to see them going up the escalator in a straight file along with the other shoppers. Sorry no photo of that unfortunately.

Lunch at Baci Italian Cafe was a very forgettable affair. I will blog about it in the next post. What is more important is the fact that I believe I have found the best Chocolate Croissants that I have ever eaten in Singapore to date!

Da Paolo Gastronomia - Chocolate Croissant (2)

Don’t be fooled by this rather plain looking Chocolate Croissant. Da Paolo’s Chocolate Croissant is bigger than any Chocolate Croissant I’ve seen. It is as long as the knife! It’s flaky on the outside, yet moist, rich, buttery and chewy on the inside. And let me tell you, this Chocolate Croissant is filled with a horizontal column of thick chocolate filling from end to end. No more searching for miserable chocolate chip bits in your croissant. Every mouthful of this Chocolate Croissant from Da Paolo delivers chocolate and croissant with every bite! If you ask me, eating this is even more comforting than eating a plain old chocolate cake. Really really really fantastic. It’s so substantial, the Partner and I went halves on this. I would almost recommend you not to have this on your own or you would not be able to eat dinner.

And the most incredible part is it costs only $3.20!!!!!!!

And I’ve tried the Chocolate Croissant at Maison Kayser, the renown French bakery that recently opened at Scotts Square. It’s nothing compared to Da Paolo’s Chocolate Croissant.

There are some seats at the Da Paolo at 112 Katong. You have to make your orders at the counter, and get your own cutlery, but they will serve the food to you.

Da Paolo Gastronomia - Dark Chocolate Mint Latte (3)

We also tried the Dark Chocolate Mint Latte for $6. Quite pricey considering the other drinks were cheaper. Whoa, at first sip, the mint flavour really hits you. It was like drinking liquid mint chocolates. I couldn’t even tell that it was a latte. It was rather sweet too and I found it amusing that the staff even gave us a sugar packet. As a chocolate drink, this was refreshingly different. I rather liked the mint flavour, and there wasn’t any bitter taste either, which is usually associated with dark chocolate. I wouldn’t order this if I needed a caffeine shot though.

Da Paolo Gastronomia Pastries!

After our snack, we went back out to take a picture of the pastry case, and the chocolate croissants were all sold out!

Da Paolo Gastronomia at myVillage

*Bloggers’ Invite*

When I stayed at Holland Village, I used to like to go into the Da Paolo Gastronomia outlet at Chip Bee Gardens. I would sneak in, sniff around and quickly snap some shots of the lovely food displays, pizzas and cupcakes. Those were the days before I started food blogging seriously, and I always thought the displays looked so pretty. But I was always afraid that the chef would come at me with a butcher’s knife since I didn’t buy anything.

So I was so glad to be invited down for a sampling session lately at the Da Paolo Gastronomia myVillage outlet. Finally, a chance to snap snap snap to my heart’s content! I really loved the Gorgonzola Pizza with Caramelised Onions that we had there. The sweetness of the onions paired so well with the gorgonzola. When I get the chance, I’m going to order myself an entire portion of it, as well as a latte. A latte costs only $3.50! Even my favourite standalone cafes charge more than that! See the last photo for the price list of the drinks.

Did you know, all the ingredients that Da Paolo uses are sourced from Italy? You can purchase the cooked food and eat it right here on the premises.

Da Paolo - Cooked food Selection Da Paolo - Couscous with Rocket and Sweet Potato

Whenever I see things like these, I always imagine buying the lot and throwing a party. Half the job done for you already and everyone will be none the wiser.

Da Paolo Gastronomia - Gorgonzola pizza with caramelised onions

Mmmmm the best “dessert pizza” I’ve had in a long time. The Partner doesn’t think it tastes sweet enough to be called a “dessert pizza”, but I think it does!

Da Paolo Gastronomia - cupcakes  Da Paolo Gastronomia - Pizza Slices Da Paolo Gastronomia - Spinach Tagliatelle

Spinach Tagliatelle. There’s also herb pasta and a few more if you look at the 1st picture. I love the different variations!

Da Paolo Gastronomia - Hello Kitty Wine

Well who would have thought of all the places to get Hello Kitty memorabilia, it would be here, and wine to boot!  .

Da Paolo Gastronomia - Tiramisu

Da Paolo - Sampling Session!

 Mmmm… tasty

Martina of Da Paolo and Darren of CelebrateLah I love this picture! Martina of Da Paolo is from Italy and she demonstrates how the Italians show their appreciation for delicious food. And there’s Darren of CelebrateLah showing his approval of the food at Da Paolo.

Hey the Cafe Latte is only $3.50 and the Hot Chocolate is only $4! I was kind of expecting something more expensive. Will have to try out the drinks some day. Click on the photo to see the drinks price list.
