How are ladies treated in a bakery designed exclusively for them? To a wonderful round of taste-testing and herbal tea, of course! If you like what you taste, you can make a purchase and take it home with you. Pink Paris also offers rainy-day deliveries for purchases over NT$300, and you can call in and reserve bread for pick-up later. Pink Paris clearly breaks new ground here, making bread-buying an elegant, enjoyable, even romantic shopping experience. --By Niang Chen, translated by Naomi Lai
A. With romantic pinks and luxurious decor, Pink Paris only sells the freshest breads, made that day.
B. Favorite breads include Rose with Lychee (NT$300, 650g) and Dried Longan with Fermented Rice (NT$300, 650g). Both of these are European-style breads with moist and chewy centers. The Rose with Lychee variety is full of rose and lychee fragrances, while the Dried Longan with Fermanted Rice has the mild aroma of rice wine from the fermented rice.
C.Danish Brown Sugar Mochi Toast (NT$80) is a Danish pastry made by layering brown sugar with mochi 48 times. As you enjoy the chewy mochi texture, you'll also taste the caramelized sweetness of the brown sugar. Another popular bread is the Driftwood (NT$50), which looks just like it's named. This fruity bread folds figs, cranberries and apricots soaked in rum within an exterior crust that is baked until crisp.
