Because of the way movies and books have romanticised the city of Paris in France most of us often associate anything French with romance and love. We love imagining ourselves walking the streets of France with a loved one, holding hands, giggling and then stopping at a nice cafe for some French pastries while sharing secret smiles with our handsome/beautiful partner.
Oui oui, doesn't that sound fantastic? Well, why don't you make your imagination a reality and one of these spots in Penang that serve the best croissants, our favourite French pastry:
