Adriano Zumbo's macaron haven in Melbourne's inner city

Adriano Zumbo's macaron haven encapsulates what Melbourne foodies love the most; we love exquisite culinary experiences on a budget.

The patisserie catches the eye of the passers-by with its eccentric decor. At first glance, it could be mistaken for a night club with its pink neon signs and mirrored walls. The statement piece, though, is the pink bubblegum benches that speak volumes about the extraordinary tastes of Adriano Zumbo.

There is a childish delight to standing in front of the glass counter. While the pastries appear conventional, the cakes and tarts are comparable to artistic structures. The placement of chocolate shards and miniature fruit pieces on top of the desserts are testament to the finesse of Zumbo and his bakers.

Above all, Zumbo's macarons (Zumbarons) are the main attraction. At $2.50 each, the macarons come in flavours that are unique to the patisserie: Salted Caramel Popcorn, Pandan Sticky Rice, Blueberry Pancake, Apple Pie... The flavours are intricate and accurately reflect their name. The combination of flavours allow for subtle undertones. Even the sweet Blueberry Pancake Macaron has hints of a savoury pancake. One of the more interesting flavours is definitely the Pandan Sticky Rice. It is truly a reflection of Zumbo's inspiration and creativity.

For all the Secret Santas out there, a box of Melbourne's most unique macarons will make anyone happy. Here's an idea: gift a box of red, green and white-coloured macarons.
