Passed by Canelé Pâtisserie Chocolaterie at Paragon and have decided to get 2 macarons to satisfy my carving. Since floral violette was my favourite on my last visit, I have decided to pick that with rose. Like Yuan, we prefer macarons with a lighter flavour so that we can enjoy the combination of egg white and almond powder better.
My liking towards Canelé Pâtisserie Chocolaterie's macarons grows as time passes. The floral scent of both flavours in the macaron shells was strong enough and the melted fresh cream (light and non-sweetened) just soften the entire taste. Although it is just two, it is good enough to satisfy my craving. By the way, we wanted to eat on the spot but we didn't have any place to snap a shot, thus explains the melted filling.
I have always told Fen that the macarons from Canele were good but she remain unconvinced until today. One of the strengths of these macarons were the strong scent of each flavour. Also you will feel the almond taste as we bite the chewy shells. The slight downside is that the shell does not have the crispy crust. On the whole, the scent and the chewy shells would already make this one of the better macarons.
