Sweets, sweets, sweets. It’s all about the macarons in this post! Remember- this is just from a collection of my favourite macarons in Hong Kong. 🙂 Lets get to it then- I present to you the 5 Best Macarons in Hong Kong.
1. PIERRE HERME
You can never go wrong with these luscious treats from Pierre Herme. They come in an assortment of mixed or original flavours- featuring the most moist outer macaron cover. Each bite is decadent, luxe (that pricetag), and scrumptious. You can’t go wrong with the creamy filling surrounded by a crunchy/ chewy outer layer. Must try: I love their signature pink rose and rose petal flavoured macaron.
Just look at this signature take away box from Pierre Herme. #Beautiful

Yup, Laduree makes my eyes pop THAT wide. Laduree offers pretty pastel coloured macarons that are simple, delicate and delicious. What began in 1862 is now a ridiculously successful international macaron, pastry and tea franchise. When the store first opened in Harbour City two years ago- the lines were crazy long- with hungry macaron enthusiasts like me waiting over 2 hours to try these babies. Now, the lines are long gong- but the macarons are still just as tasty.

Jouer. WOW. This was insanely delicious. “Savor with caution,” and they were deadly. I almost consumed all of these Halloween special edition mini Satan’s toffee apple macarons and delectable Pungent Pumpkin macarons the moment I got them. Be warned because they are so addictive. I’ve heard great reviews of Jouer since it first opened up shop on Star Street in Wan Chai but failed to try them. Now, thanks to the boys behind the awesome food networking site Feed Me Guru I am hooked!! Check out Feed Me Guru for the latest news on all things FOOD!

4. THE MIXING BOWL
Who doesn’t love a DO- IT YOURSELF macaron class/ shop! I know I do. That sense of accomplishment is unreal! (I may be a bit biased but when you make your own macarons from scratch: that sense of pride is AWESOME and they’re bound to taste better!) Bake with Jess, anyone?

Okay, so I ran out of pictures of just the macaroon – but recently a shoot for my new column in Zcoop got me munching on this pink beauty from Patisserie Tony Wong. Thanks Zcoop, iMakeup Workshop & Bullet Films! <3
