Although I'm a huge desert fan, I never like the taste of macarons. I think they're just overly sweet, tasteless and overprice piece of soft biscuit. But one day I followed my friend to Canele and she ordered some macarons. There, I decided to do my experiment.
My experience with their salted caramel was out of this world. Finally, I know what all these craze about macarons are. They tasted heavenly. From now on, I will always buy my macarons from Canele.
I love the ambiance here. I always love places with huge, comfortable lounge chairs. They make perfect place to catch up with friends while having a quick bite on sumptuous desert.
Price is a little bit high end here. Be prepared to pay a little bit for the quality that you'll get.
For now, ill just be commenting on their takeaway counter.
That is namely, their sweets. Got a whole row of their macaroons one day and the bright colours definitely excited me. One look at the oozing fillings sandwiched between two crisp meringue shells, the thought already makes me salivate. Turquoise, chilli red, amber and a pretty green, the colours reminiscent of a rainbow, what's there not to like?
BUT WAIT. Don't jump the gun here now. That's the appearance, not the taste. My verdict's not out yet. Well, too sweet, definitely too sweet. I know macaroons are meant to be sweet, they are. But theirs? Diabetes inducing. Heck, on a health freak's point of view, the amount of colouring added is enough to induce a string of health related problems.
After a few bites, i couldn't take it anymore. Even though i have a sweet tooth, they were definitely to much for me. I got a migraine from the excessive amount of sugar added.
