Ladurée: More Than Macarons

Without a doubt, Ladurée made its fame from those decadently made macarons that the world over have basked in its yummy goodness.

For a foodie, partaking in the sweetness and elegance of a french macaron crafted by the best patissier in the business is an honor.

Talking above the best, the upscale patisserie’s macarons in Ladurée Rockwell, Makati City, have been shipped from Switzerland. Hence, the upscale prices as well.

Regardless, I gotta have some to have that experience over and done. Of course, it’s still part of my bucket list to actually dine in the Champs Elysées shop. But I’ll settle for a branch for now.

Upon entering, it felt like I entered a temple for macarons. All colors of the rainbow graces the front of the shop. The surrounding of the shop are stocked with shelves of marmalade/conserves, tea in classy tin cans and souvenirs like keychains.

It’s truly a novelty to step inside a shop that breathes sophistication. I even stared at the waxed paper bag on my way back to my hotel, carrying with me a piece of french perfection.

I’ll probably come back to get myself some of those tea. 😉
