Visiting Laduree Singapore

Known as one of the world's best macaron makers, French luxury sweets company Laduree is every girly girl's dream. I had the opportunity to check out the only store in Southeast Asia in Singapore last year, and it was a delightful experience! 

The celadon green storefront calls out to shoppers at Ngee Ann City, where the boutique is located. Stepping in, you enter a world of enchanting Parisian sophistication - a world in its own, truly! Spend as much time as you like browsing through their sweets and merchandise (Laduree scented candles, anyone?) and take plenty of photos - it's a pre-requisite to step into the shop. LOL jk. 

But don't leave empty handed! People have travelled far and wide to taste these mini sugar-burger confections, even famously hand-carrying them all the way from Paris back home (wherever home may be). Or am I confusing them with Pierre Herme? Hmmm. 

Okay back to normal talk. Pretty ex lah these tiny bombs of sugar. SGD4 for one I think? One of the more expensive ones in Singapore! But it's different from other macarons. I love the generous ganache filling, and the tops and bottoms (what do you call them LOL) are chewy, but not overly chewy until it gets stuck in your teeth. There were so many people in the store as well, a lot of people just coming in and going out with what they want. 

Are you a fan of macarons?
