Tarte au chocolat in central London---anyone know a decent place?
I'm trying to find a desserts shop in central London which serves exquisite tarte au chocolat. Any suggestions?
Also, any other recommendations for sweets are appreciated :)
Deux Salons serves a delicious Paris Brest. Google Eric Lanlard. He's a very famous pastry chef in London. Maybe his tarts are what you're aiming for.
Konditor and Cook used to do a gorgeous one with raspberries...not sure sure if they still do though, worth checking out..
Well, a report on my progress so far:
The one mentionable place is Paul Rhodes in Notting Hill.
The tarte au chocolat's chocolate was superb, the tarte itself a bit too hard---it's possible it was in the display case for some time, or perhaps that's the batter they're using for tart crusts. So a positive review, though it could be better.
They're flourless chocolate cake though is to die for...
Had a good choc tart at William Curley but that was a couple years ago at their late Mayfair outpost.
The Artisans Foods stall in Borough Market sells a pretty good rendition as well.
