Le Petit Gateau - Sunset, LA

Each Galette des Rois comes with a religious medal instead of a plastic baby
-- Le Petit Gateau bill's itself as a Bakery and Tea Salon and that's pretty cool.  We must say that everything in the bakery case looks and smells fantastic!  Lots of high quality items.  The King Cake is of the ultra-traditional French Galette des Rois variety.  And it is buttery, decadent, goodness of the highest order.  The pastry is like a cross between puff pastry and a top end croissant.  Really Good!

The almond cream filling is plentiful and incorporated right in amongst the thin layers of moist dough.  It could be a little sweeter and the overall flavor is somewhat muted (may need salt).  However, all in all, this is really an exquisite slice of tradition.  And, instead of a plastic baby Jesus, they include a collectable religious medal (one of 100 different Saints) and that's pretty cool too!!

-- Make sure to warm each piece up in the microwave!! --
