Come and buy yourself a slice of happiness from Ambassador Hotel Taipei's Le Bouquet! Greeted by a friendly "Bonjour!", the frangrance of a French bakery and, fabulous pastries all around, it makes one want to bring them all home. Le Bouquet mostly uses ingredients imported from France, such as high quality French chocolate, fresh cream, fennel, hazelnut sauce, rum raisins and chestnuts, plus fresh berries and fruits. All pastries are handmade, with special seasonal desserts. The sweetness level of these French pastries has been adjusted to suit Taiwanese tastes. Le Bouquet also has French chocolate and bread. Their six-inch cakes are especially popular. The "White Angel" (NT$750) uses Fromage Blanc (NT$360 for 500 grams) from Isigny in Normandy, France, rather than the usual fresh cream (NT$85 per 500 grams). The fat content is only 8 percent. With a layer of strawberry jam within, it gives a hint of tartness as well. The "Mona Lisa" (NT$700), is layer after layer of flavor and fruity aroma; its sweetness lives up to its name. There are other delicate little cakes priced between NT$100 and NT$120 that are all very alluring, too.
