Macaron Heaven

Macarons - crispy on the outer shell, chewy in the middle, sandwiched with chocolate ganache in the middle

So, I've tried 3 macarons so far (not including the ones I made myself)

Sendai, Japan

Macarons from a shop in Sendai (around HKD 16)
 I think they replace almond meal with peanut meal

In my opinion, they were disappointing, the outer shell was soft and had no taste in them =[

These macarons were not as good as I expected them to be. They did not taste like the flavor it said contained and the chocolate was too bitter (even for someone like me who likes bitter chocolate). HKD 15
Caramel flavor
Vanilla flavor

La Maison du Chocolat

These macarons were in fact REALLY good, even the chocolate sandwiched in it (well, it better be cause the chocolates they sell there are hella expensive, like real expensive)

They served them cold and each had a distinct flavor in it. They were perfect ... and expensive, HKD 20 for one.
