Ladurée macarons are iconic. Even though I personally prefer the ones from Pierre Hermé, no Filipino would say no to a new luxury bakery to grace us with its delightful macarons. From the social climbing teen to the tasteful students of Manila’s finest single-sex high schools, the first macaron market in Manila, everyone’s keeping their catty eyes on Lopez Tower, Rockwell. The social climbing teen will finally be able to instagram Ladurée, the macaron brand they’ve been dreaming about for years. The preppy babies no longer have to fly to Hong Kong or NYC or Paris just to be able to munch on these dainty pastries.
Chef Jessie macarons are good. Chef Margarita Fores macarons are good. Manila Peninsula macarons are good. TWG macarons are good. Bizu macarons are okay. Tous les Jours macarons are okay. Pierre Hermé macarons are to die for. Ladurée macarons are excellent.
