Apart from the world-famous African Hot Chocolate, the Angelina Tearoom is best known for their delectable selection of pastries. Among them is their signature pastry, the Mont-Blanc.
The Mont-Blanc has long been an esteemed dessert item, with its distinctive chestnut cream vermicelli top, crisp meringue, and light whipped cream. The Angelina Tearoom has boasted plenty of their other classic desserts as well. Among them are the Tarte Citron which is a sweet pastry with smooth lemon cream and candied lemon. The Succès Noisette is another popular choice. This features a hazelnut dacquoise biscuit with pure sea salt, smothered with whipped hazelnut cream, and topped with a crunchy praline heart.
While the Angelina classics will always be favored, some of their newer pastry selections have quickly gained praise as well. Not surprisingly, the Mont-Blanc Speculoos has become one of the tearoom favorites. This version of the original Mont-Blanc is enhanced by a speculoos heart and speculoos shreds. The Délice Framboise-Pistache is also a delightful option. It is made of pistachio cream layered between a crunchy pistachio biscuit and an almond biscuit. All of that is topped with a generous layer of raspberry mouse and fresh raspberry. Although less colorful, the Merveille Nougat-Fruits des Bois may be the most magnificent choice. This chic pastry is easy to love with its crisp meringue, nougat mousse, blackberry and blackcurrant heart. All of that is topped by light whipped cream, and ground roasted almonds.
No matter your preference, it will surely pair very well with the hot chocolate. With a cup of rich hot chocolate and a serving of any of the beautiful pastries, your Angelina Tea House experience will be divine.
