Macarons from Sadaharu AOKI, Paris11.7.11
my friend claire went to paris again to visit her fiancé's family and i got more sadaharu AOKI's macarons this time yay!! this is my third time having them this year (so lucky) and not just that, i got to try three cakes from there as well!
claire said she got me different flavors this time but i couldn't really tell since they looked pretty similar from previously.
the one at the top, think it was coffee and the bottom, earl grey. both were really good i felt like i just died and went to macaron heaven! i should hv requested her to get me the yuzu one :( anyway im gonna slowly savor the rest :p
the 3 cakes claire got me (bamboo, which is matcha opera, matcha adzuki dome & sesame matcha) were unfortunately toppled and squashed during baggage check by the customs officer at airport in paris (she said the parisians are really nasty & rude lol) so i didnt manage any photos. they were really good as well but unlike most japanese desserts, the ones i tried were hardly light and airy, probably to cater to the french tastebuds?
now i need AOKI desserts from tokyo! that shall be my resolution for nx year :p
