Our interstate friend pays us a visit and she was keen to try the famous Laduree Macarons. Without further adieu, we made our ways into the city in midst of a heavy rain.
[ADVERT]Look at that Macarons-on-a-cone!
It's all pastel colour-theme here. The famous Ladurée mint colour is the central focus and is hard to miss. We suspected the fittings were all custom made, possibly all imported from Europe too. We absolutely adore the surrounding soft pastel colours too - they just make this small kiosk so dreamy and so French.
When we arrived, there was a steady stream of shoppers. The queue was short and sweet. Just enough wait time for us to browse and decide what we want.
The crowds were far less intense compared to its grand opening.
Each macaron is priced at $4.00. Yikes, for a mouthful of sweet delight, it sure have a dear price tag. We only purchased a couple of macarons to sample.
It was a new beginning to our French dessert indulgences. These macarons were precisely presented with two macaron shells and various ganache fillings. They were visually and taste-wise satisfying .
The chestnut macaron was our favorite. The creamy paste consists of finely ground chestnut which is aromatic and not-too-sweet. It was crumbly and airy. Ah, it was definitely a dessert bliss with a cup of hot tea or hot chocolate.
If you want to get one of the dolled-up mint pastel Laudree box, a minimum purchase of six macarons is required.
