La Durée

My Lovely Macarons,

Being part of a well-known brand, La Duree, there isn’t much I have to tell. Apart from its high quality delicacies and its long heritage (1862), the only thing that people may not know is that its presence has reached ASIA, pretty recently. You can find stores in Hong Kong (Habour City), and Singapore (Takashimaya).

Looks familiar aye?

Anyway, you guys are the SWEETEST things on earth. Literally. From the first bite to the last, EVERY PART is sweet. Check out some of the flavors we tried.

A big-ass Raspberry Macaron with a rose ( i believe) petal on top.
The size of this? 8cm in diameter, probably.

Ice-cream with Macarons? Any takers?
Its pretty refreshing. After all the sweetness, its good to have some kinda sourness.
That’s Sorbert with Pistachio, Green Tea, Raspberry

More macarons! Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Vanilla, Strawberry (Anti-clockwise)

It is hard to say which flavors are the best cause everything is subjective. If you like Salted Caramel ice-cream, you’ll probably love the Salted Caramel Macaron too.

In a nutshell, MAD SUGAR RUSH.

But that’s not all. Who says the Macarons Family rule La Duree.
There are other delicacies too. CHOCOLATE CAKE. Voila!
Really rich and chocolatey.
If its a good one, you can most likely taste a strong cacao flavor. Here’s one good example.

Of course, at the end of the day, Macarons > Cake.
But one thing to note, good things always come with a price. Queue up or just grab a take-out.

Once again, thank you Macarons, sweet little creatures.
