Macaron Shops in Singapore

Obolo macaron $2.40 each

Obolo
Thought the shell was pretty shallow but good crunchy texture on the surface.
The firm ganache filling was undoubtedly thickest I have come across in SG.
Hazelnut one, the flavour was lacking, tasted more like just chocolate. Salted caramel was good but too salty! Looking on taste improvements on these gems.

TWG (no picture taken) $2 each

All the macarons offered are tea infused flavours.
Of course, TWG being the tea house.
However, the texture is lacking.
And the tea infused flavours didn’t work quite well for us.

The Sweet Spot $24 for a 12-piece box

Sweet Spot
I am taking these macarons as the best to be found in Singapore.
I’m seeing Pierre Herme’s macaron shadows in the texture and taste here.
Try them out if you haven’t.

Jean Phillippe Darcis

Jean Phillippe Darcis
Available from the food hall basement of Takashimaya and also Marina Bay Sands hotel. These are air-flown (daily) from Belgium.
$3 each.  I was disappointed with the flavours, thin ganache filling.
Chewy textures to the pistachio flavour. Praline one was slightly better.

Bakerzin (no picture taken) approx. $2 each
Only the chocolate flavour is well made, good tasting ganache and firm filling.
The rest of the flavours constructed with weak buttercream, weak and d disappointing.

Pave’s lavender chocolate macaron $3.50

Pavé [Closed down]
Rare oblong macaron available in Singapore. Interesting. The texture and lavender chocolate filling were spot on.
Note: Pavé outlet at East Coast Road has ceased operation. Pavé chocolate products are available online (www.pavechocolates.com) at Marina Square, at a chocolate speciality shop named URSS Chocolatier (#02-261).

Centre PS 5-piece box macaron $10

Centre PS

We thought that the flavours were quite good, shell texture were great.
Just one little thing that irks me, the colours are too animated, that’s just me.

Bonheur Patisserie’s petits cakes

Finally, here are the macarons tasted from Bonheur Patisserie.
Ironically, they haven’t started selling them yet.
Available as part of the petit cakes I bought.
Still, I love the green tea and the chocolate & lavender mini macarons already.
Love the texture of the shell and ganache. Flavours are great!

Jewel Artisan macaron and praline chocolate

[Closed Down] Jewels Artisan Chocolate‘s macarons are quite good in texture wise.
The winner was the kaya flavour.
