Bakerzin macarons

Remember this macaron promotion? This is one of my favourite desserts :) It's crispy yet soft to the bite. Sweet but not cloying... It's just heaven... *happy sigh* When the flavours are right, that is

Well, I was determined to try out Bakerzin's macarons since they're having a promotion this month. If this is a good place for macarons, hey, the more the merrier :)

These were wat I got:

Clockwise from bottom left: blueberry flavour, Yuzu (or 'Japanese lemon' as the waiter called it) and rose.

I've to say, the first bite did not disappoint. It was light yet crisp to the bite. However. I regret to say the filling grows sweeter and sweeter wif every bite. I could only stomach up to half of each and had to palm them off to my un suspecting frens ;P Oops.

The yuzu flavour is my favourite out of the 3. It is still sweet but I feel the slight tartness of the lemon managed to temper it a little, so that it was easier to stomach. As for the other 2, the flavours were very subtle. All I remembered were they were so sweet. Hahaha.... well, guess that wat desserts are for - to leave a memory of sweetness??
