What’s special about the Eclairs DoinDubai tried?
The eclairs are ALL hand made by a French pastry chef Imane who trained in Paris and is now working full time at the Eclair boutique in Dubai. Flavours include Matcha green tea eclairs, grown up chocolate with gold leaf, raspberry and coffee too. There are 15 flavours in all. All the chocolate used is by Valrhona in Lyons – France. So you now have Gourmet elcairs in Dubai ! I tried the chocolate with gold leaf with a small espresso. I can say it was the most sophisticated but accessible chocolate dessert cake I have ever tasted! You wouldn’t need more than one of these mini gourmet eclairs.

Where can I buy these Eclairs?
From the Eclair La Petite Duchesse, a tiny outlet (at the moment) in Cluster Y in Jumeirah Lake Towers, look for the Zoom supermarket, walk down the circular stairs and the Eclair shop is opposite the pizza place! There is parking available on the ground floor. Although there are a couple of small tables outside, this outlet is really designed as a take away place and ideally you should order before hand if you need large quantities. Tel 04 427 9901 It’s in the Lake Shore Tower development.
How much are the Eclairs?
There are 2 sizes of Eclairs at the moment, a mini and a full size. The minis I think are perfect 2 to 3 bite morsels and should be enough for most people! Prices at Dhs 8.50 for the minis so that’s UK sterling 1.50 or US dollars 2.30 and Dhs 19 for a full sized long eclair. What do you think of the prices? Bear in mind that good quality maccarons (an equivalent dessert that are very popular in Dubai now) cost around Dhs 10 to Dhs 12 each.
