Decided to drop by Dolci da Paolo for a good slice of cake and was surprised by the change of selection available at the cafe. Unlike my last visit with Yuan, the cafe has decided to sell packs of macarons, meringue and petite desserts. For those who miss their cakes, they are available at Da Paolo Gastronomia which is near the vicinity.
Anyway, couldn't mix and match, either I get a packet of 4 which costs me $10 or a macaron at $2 nett. Very expensive and the flavours are pretty limited. The flavours available in packs of 4 for that day were lavender, matcha, peanut butter and orange while the individually sold one include peanut butter, rose, orange and coffee.
Overall, these are mildly sweetened and have extremely chewy centres (I'm serious, the chewiest ones I have ever come across). Lavender was pretty mild and the cream in the centre was pretty bland but the rose macaron is highly recommended. Its flavour is much stronger than the rose macaron from Canelé and the chewy shells perfect it all.
Just a tip, do eat macarons at room temperature, the sweetness will be at its minimum with the softest possible texture.
