Pâtisserie Review: L’Opera Salon de Thé – 4/5 Stars

L’opera is a family business that was started in the French embassy first. This popular bakery and patisserie quickly moved to Khan Market too and now they have 9 outlets all around Delhi NCR. L’Opera Salon de Thé which literally translated means L’Opera Tea Room is the only tea room L’Opera has.

They source their flour from France and have only one production facility in Noida. They try to empower their bakers and staff and as far as possible keep their system hierarchy free. This whole idea behind this is to have a happier working atmosphere for their chefs and staff to create desserts that can go on to become unforgettable for the restaurant’s patrons.

The “Quiche” and “Croque Monsieur” were the savoury items we had which was followed by some lovely tea (rose and lemon). They have an interesting collection of tea from Shahpur Jat, which i really liked. The tea went very well with the Croque Monsieur. The combination of salty and mildly sweet was just right.

Then we had the petit four which means small confectionery or savoury appetiser. There were some awesome truffle and passion fruit sponge cake, apple cinnamon cake and the famous opera pastry. The sponge was perfectly soft and the presentation was impeccable. The opera pastry was rich and decadent.

The petits fours were followed by freshly baked macaroons. I once had macaroons L’Opera, Vasant Kunj a while ago and did not like them very much but these were truly magnificent. They had been baked to perfection, there was a delicate crunch outside and a slight gooey moistness inside. The flavours we had were “Hazelnut Chocolate” and “Passion Fruit” and we truly loved them both. If you ask me to pick a favourite, I will not be able to.

I met Mr. Masood at L’Opera Salon de Thé who explained us the importance of the different textures in French desserts. It was nice that there was someone available to educate us on French baking.

L’Opera Salon de Thé have a large collection of breads, everything freshly baked. The “Sour Dough Bread” was delicious. I took some away with me for later. The “Multi-grain Baguette” with flak seeds and sunflower seeds can be had on its own because it has added salt. I ordered another cup of tea so I could enjoy this bread. The combination of sweet and salty can never go wrong!
