Macaron @ Whisk Espresso Bar & Bake Shop

I came across a lot food bloggers blogging about Macaron. Wondering what is so special about the Macaron. After reading bloggers comments, about yummy Macaron, so I decided to give a try on Macaron.

What is Macaron?  I have Macarons details quoted from Wikipedia
A macaron (French pronunciation is a sweet confectionery made with egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food coloring. The macaron is commonly filled with buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies. Its name is derived from an Italian word "maccarone" or "maccherone". The cookies is meringue-based: made from a mixture of egg whites, almond flour. The confectionery is characterised by its smooth, domed top, ruffled circumference and flat base. It is mildly moist and easily melts in the mouth.

Recommended by friend to this shop Whisk (Expresso bar & Bake Shop) at Empire Gallery Shopping Mall. Whisk is a tiny hole in the wall in Empire Subang, comfortingly informal when you step inside. The menu is limited, but this is not a bad thing – it leaves space for the cooks to focus on what they do best (these skills are outlined in the name of the shop). There are a handful of savoury items on the menu but precedence is given to the many cakes that cover the counter, and the solid coffee menu.

This shop selling Macaron, colorful with different types of flavors. Beautiful aren't they? xD I couldn't resist myself trying on cheerful coloured Macaroons (RM20 for 10 pieces, or RM2.20 per piece) which came in a variety of interesting flavours like Peanut Butter, Lychee, Passion Fruit, Cranberry, Apple, Blackberry as well as classic ones like Chocolate, Vanilla, etc, etc. Freshly baked it's out from hot owen =)

5 flavors for myself =P

For testing purposes, I got myself 5 flavors. Damn, each of them so yummmy, what to choose? Feel like grabbing all but I cannot be greedy at one time otherwise I will waste the food. At last my choice of 5 flavors, Peanut Butter, Vanilla, Apple, Rose & Strawberry. I was looking at the Macaron, reluctant to eat coz it's cute.  First bite, realized they were crispy but too sweet till max level, colorful but blandly flavored. Summary in short, sandwiches biscuits worth to try but caution if you're diabetic person avoid it! This shop famous for Espresso coffee & cakes, I would be back to visit this shop again for second time, Cheers!! xD
