Scrumptious Spot 1# La Boulangerie



Being a perfect foodie, I love to hop around restaurants and eat outs. I thoroughly enjoy trying out new varieties of food and different cuisines. So here comes my new section where I would pen down my experiences, views and lot more about the truly "Scrumptious spots" that I visit. :) Hope it would be a good food guide to people in Chennai :)


Scrumptions Spot 1# - LA BOLANGERIE


La Boulangerie

La Boulangerie is a french bakery as it says and it keeps up the promise too. ;)

I hopped into the Kotturpuram branch when I was having a jolly good ride last weekend. I was more than happy that I did. It was an absolute pleasure to the tongue. :)

Warning: Pile up your calorie conscience right in front of the door and enter just to please your tongue. :)


The menu was pretty impressive and hard to decide over what to choose. They offer a wide variety of viennoiseries like raisin roll, pepito, almond puff, almond chocolate roll, croissants, chocolate roll etc. and cuisines like sausage roll, quiches, olive bouchee, finger food, vol au vent and cheese croissants.


Since I was new to french delicasies, I had no choice than to play inky pinky ponky and choose one. ;)
I choose cheese croissants and now I am a big time fan of croissants. They were so fluffy and yummm. :)

Coming to the most drool worthy portion of the menu.. THE PASTRY :) There were again a long list of yummmmmmmmy pastries which included Chocolate Entremet, Ceyrac tea, Cashwtin, Lemon tart, Eclairs, Chocolate Mousse, Opera, Fruit tart, Marble cake, Nougat, Muffins, Coffee eclair, Chocolate tarts and more. :)

I relished a Chocolate entremet and I melted along with it.. mmmm :)

They also have take aways like Bagel bread, Country bread, Cereal bread, Sliced bread, Madeleine cookies, Financier, Chocolate chip and assorted cookies too.

The price is pretty reasonable for the quality that they deliver. But if you were just looking for an Iyengar bakery, then its not the place for you. :)

When I was about to leave, the staff asked me if I need some pack away. I simply smiled and said "could you pack the chef with me???" ;)



La Boulangerie1

LA BOULANGERIE is part of R.R.Hospitality and has outlets in lot of place at Chennai.

So if you drive through Anna Nagar, Ampa skymal, Besant Nagar, Kotturpuram, Mylapore, Nungambakkam or Mahindracity, dont miss to halt at this eatout. :)

Find more information as well as the locations of the outlets at: http://laboulangerie.in/









Verdict: LA BOULANGERIE is one of the best outlets where I have tasted authentic pastries and breads and is a must try eatout now at Chennai.

Hi nithi the shop is awesome.. and Even I had the idea of doing it and have many in my draft too. But here there are so many sites regarding the restuarant reviews. So I just dropped this idea and I just wanted to proceed with only food food food...But in chennai it worksout good all the best and keep going.
