Macarons on Display

Macarons ($2.5ea)

Chris and I nabbed 3 macarons to share - cherry blossom and sake, lemon, and caramel and sea salt ($2.5ea). The cherry blossom and sake unfortunately didn’t taste much of either, but the texture was perfect. The lemon macaron also had a perfect shape and texture, on top of a wonderful lemon flavour, though I would’ve preferred it to be more tart. As for the caramel and sea salt (the standard by which I judge all my macarons), it was surprisingly dense – maybe I just got a bad one? But the flavour was out of this world, and I loved how they used actual caramel in the middle.

I want more already.

Rating: 14/20 – RAINBOW COLOURS!

  1. Lindt has amazing macaroons, a box of six for around $12, or $2.50 each.
