The Paris macaron-makers whose roots trace back all the way to 1862 have opened the doors to their first ever Sydney store, serving their famous featherlight macarons at Westfield Sydney. Choose from the likes of orange blossom, blackcurrant, incroyable strawberry candy and lime basil and savour what many call the best macarons on Earth. And while you're there, look around: the interiors of Ladurée stores are universally stunning.
"Newcomer Ladurée is fresh from Paris (and snap-frozen in Switzerland) and a firm favourite with the hordes who line up for hours inside Westfield Sydney for a taste. (It’s worth it for the beautiful packaging alone – nothing says “oh yeah, I have disposable income” like swinging one of those green bags!). But appearance was inconsistent, and Gilmore wasn’t impressed with the texture. “I find it crumbles up too much, and it’s moist [inside]”. There again, the caramel number fared better for Gilmore in the flavour stakes. “I don’t mind the caramel inside, and the macaron isn’t falling apart as badly as the berry one.” $3.20 per macaron."
