Year of Eating Differently (17): Paul, Old Compton Street

Sandwiched between pubs and gay bars, here's a boulangerie named after somebody called Paul. Flogging a succession of baguettes - here's one covered in sesame seeds and with camembert in it.
I don't eat many sesame seeds in my life. I always get them when I eat pizza in Tromso, but that's about the only opportunity. So this could either be an interesting diversion, or a bit revolting. Camembert, on the other hand, is rich man's brie, and I've already had a brie baguette recently, so on average, so much the difference.

Sadly, the bread is over-chewy and the cheese is just plain rubbery. Not impressed. Ah well. They've got a year to improve, after all...
