Foret Blanc Patisserie is a dessert cafe. Some of their desserts are quite out of the ordinary and even though they claimed that they focuses on French inspired desserts but you should know that they also have Indian inspired desserts.
The item that stands out from the rest is their Banana Leaf Waffle @ RM24.90 (promo price for this week is RM19.00). There are 2 versions of this banana leaf waffle. The first version is the sweeter version and the second version, the Banana Leaf Waffle 2.0 is the savory version. We only had the chance to try the second version and our first impression of this is that it does have all the familiar elements to the banana leaf rice.
The elements to this Banana Leaf Waffle 2.0 include vade waffles, tomato chutney, mint chutney, yogurt ta-yir sauce, mango curry chantily with mango cubes and chopped chili, homemade coconut ice cream with toasted coconut and balsamic rice cracker. Portion-wise, it is big enough to feed 3 to 4 persons. If you had skipped lunch / dinner, maybe this is sufficient for you to have your main meal and dessert all in one helping.
Foret Blanc Patisserie is not new to the dessert scene in Kuala Lumpur. In fact, the duo young bakers have been supplying cakes to bakeries in the Klang Valley. After the overwhelming response from their loyal customers to their online store to have a physical store/cafe, Alex and Kenny decided about 3 months ago to make-shift their central kitchen to accommodate a small cafe right in front of the shop.
We also had the Happy Polar @ RM24.50 – macaroons and marshmallows (this product contains alcohol). The polar bear was made of macaroon and the feets were made of marshmallow. Everything you see here was constructed right from the start. Even the ice cream was made on their own. This Happy Polar contains yoghurt lime ice cream, lime ginger souffle with rum, lime curd, mint crystal, polar bear macaron (pineapple lime), lime marshmallow and lime jelly.
Foret blanc’s ice creams are quite unique as well. Where can you find Cempedak ice cream in Malaysia or anywhere else in the world? I’d never heard of Cempedak ice cream before coming to Foret Blanc. They also have Brown Butter ice cream – it may sound oily but it is not. It was quite good actually – it had some nutty flavour to it. Each scoop is priced at RM9.50.
The waiting time for each dessert can be a bit long, about 15 to 20 minutes. The reason behind this is because each dessert is only constructed upon order. Dessert as pretty as this Yuzu Garden @ RM23.50 takes about 15 minutes to be constructed before it is served. The Yuzu Garden contains homemade yuzu ice cream, yuzu creme brulee, passionfruit ginger jelly, greantea microwave sponge, green tea sable, yogurt honey sauce, rum coulis and edible flower.
If you do not have time to wait for your dessert, you may also opt for their over-the-counter desserts. This is their coco (mango passionfruit with coconut). The green stick and yellow rounded thing you see here are made of chocolate.
As for drinks, I would recommend you to try their coffee. They have very good coffee here. This is the Affogato with Opera Cubes for RM 18.00.
Overall, we were quite impressed with Foret Blanc’s desserts. If you are looking for unusual desserts, you should consider coming to Foret Blanc.
