Ladies and gentlemen, we may have hit macaron jackpot. <3
After our satisfying lunch at Imperial Treasure, bB was excited to continue her macaron hunt. Darcis was the next shoppe up for scrutiny.
Nice little shoppe, but I must say the service staff were rather poorly trained. Monosyllabic when asked questions about the macarons, and did not inform me that they were out of boxes. I only found out when they plonked my order of five macarons on the counter in a clear plastic bag. No carrier was offered either, until I had to ask for one.
Cyclamen Mini Pompon would have been a good match today. :) Anyway, I digress…
And we have our first outdoor entry for **The Macaron Scribbles**! It was lovely to sit out there by the water, chomping on macarons!
These five were the only flavours left for the day, so bB bought one of each.
Passion Chocolate, Raspberry, Strawberry Poppy, Vanilla, Pistachio.
For Mac’s first macaron, he picked the Raspberry. It was a good choice because it was the best of the lot.
Biting into it was a very pleasant moment. I didn’t expect it to be so delightfully chewy. This was almost as good as Laduree! The raspberry flavour was perfect, tart and sweet in the right balance. bB loved this!
Next up was Pistachio.
It was quite lovely. Subtle flavours, not too sweet, generous amount of filling.
Mac had to go for a meeting so bB brought the remainder home to devour greedily on her own. :D
Strawberry Poppy was a vibrant burst of colour. It’s a pity the sizes of the shells were not consistent.
Same gorgeous, chewy texture. It would have been even better if the strawberry flavour was stronger. I think this needs a second taste test to verify again.
Vanilla was quite good too. Very mild flavour and same great texture. I would have loved a creamier taste but it was good anyway. Will gladly eat one again.
Passion Chocolate was a surprise. bB isn’t a big fan of anything too chocolaty but this one was really smooth. The passion fruit shell was a nice tart balance for the rich chocolate. I can see chocolate fans enjoying this one.
So Darcis is quite awesome! bB is very pleased with this discovery. There are more flavours listed on the site so maybe bB has to visit them earlier to nab them before they sell out!
