Here is an image of my small box of macarons I bought earlier last week.
Today, I ate the Dark Chocolate (60% dark chocolate) macaron.
I wasn’t that enthused to eat it, to be honest, as it is just dark chocolate and there are no real surprises there. However, I think this was the perfect macaron.
It was chewy and had a nice crisp layer on the outside, but also the filling was absolutely spot on.
The dark chocolate cream filling was made to perfection, it had the right sweetness to it, with a hint of bitterness from the dark chocolate and it was balanced perfectly with the chewy centre of the macaron biscuit.
This is definitely the macaron I would go back for. Maybe my expectations were quite low, considering it doesn’t look all that flash as per below. It didn’t matter, it was a great tasting macaron and quite an enjoyable tasting experience. Delectable, and it was just what I wanted in a macaron.
I will definitely be heading back there to try the other flavours, but maybe much later, these macarons sure pack quite a load of calories. It’d be a while to work them off!
