Recently, me and my boyfie have this crazy love for french macaroons. I first tried it last year when I had a field call to one of our customers in BGC Taguig. The parking near the customer was full so I had no choice but to park in Burgos Circle which is quite far and is 5-10 minutes walk to the building.
Burgos Circle has several restaurants and one of them is Sweet Bella. I always wanted to try their cupcakes since I always hear good comments about it. After my tiring day, i made sure to treat myself and satisfy my sweet tooth. That was the time I first laid my eyes on french macaroons but was taken aback because of the expensive price of this very small sweets - 1 macaroon is 70 pesos, this is already equivalent to a burger meal in Jollibee or Mcdo. But I was so curious why it costs too much so I bought 3 pieces of different flavors. It was love at first taste! I spared the other 2 flavors for boyfie and oh lala, he has the same reaction.
Later on, i discovered the french macaroons of PAD (Park Avenue Dessert), it costs lesser that Sweet Bella but I can't deny the similarity of their tastes, they are both delicious! 1 macaroon is only 35 pesos.
This week, i found Bizu beside starbucks inside St. Lukes Medical Center, Taguig, when I had my check-up. Guess what? Their french macaroon is just 55 pesos each, so I couldn't stop myself buying 1 box for boyfie as my gift for valentines day. Imagine his eyes popping out when he saw the macaroons inside the box... I can't say that it's the best gift I have given him but his reaction told me so, which gives me the idea to always include this to my options of gifts for him, cost me less and lesser time to think. But I have to note, not all the flavors passed my boyfie's standard, he only liked Caramel with Fleur de Sel, Dark Chocolate, Espresso con Panna, Dulce de Leche, Madagascar Vanilla and Hazelnut & White Truffle... the rest he couldn't finish and I had to finish them kasi sayang and I understood why, may lasang Calpol and I can't describe the rest.
Regardless of the price, I think me and my boyfie will still be buying french macaroons... We just couldn't resist it everytime we see one. #guiltypleasure...
