Please do not mistake this Laduree shop for being in far-away Europe, it is actually found right here in Hong Kong..! Joyce Boutique (Central Store) opposite the Landmark Mandarin Oriental hotel is right now celebrating both X’Mas and their Anniversary and had collaborated with the famous Parisien Cake and Pastry shop, Laduree in this temporary crossover. On the shelves, there’s offerings of their famous Gourmet Teas, Aroma-therapeutic candles and of course their World Famous macarons which naturally becomes the centre of feature on the France-imported wooden cart. This will last only until the end of the festive season, to be finishing up by the end of December 2010 (Update: now extended to 3rd of Jan 2011). So may I suggest that we must hurry to arrive! Unfortunately, there are no signs of the famed Ispahan or the other signature Laduree creations … Special thanks to my fellow foodie Miss. W for sending me the news about this Christmas Special Only HK Laduree Stall.
Laduree made this bag especially for Joyce..
(Did anyone buy its shares this week? )
Even the Cart is imported from France…
$180 for 6 Pieces.
10 Flavours are currently available in Hong Kong.
Rose and Ginger -
Very good. Crispy exterior with a chewy, soft centre. Some people will prefer this to be purely Rose Buttercream than with ginger infused, but this worked well in my opinion ~ 9/10
Salted Caramel with fleur de sel -
This was overly soft and wet moist, as noted by a friend. It was almost like it was pre-frozen,
then defrosted in an overly humid fridge. Flavour was great though ~ 6.5/10
Framboise Raspberry -
This was squashed by the staff when its put into the tiny box, I wonder if we
should have asked for a refund? Look how much shorter it is sitting next to the
Salted Caramel macaron ! ~ 4/10
They should make this a Permanent Fixture…
Wouldn’t you happen to feel the same?
