Ladurée Sydney

Last weekend, I went up to Sydney for IMATS. Sunday morning, I woke up with this massive urge for macarons and since so many people has been saying how awesome the macarons are at Ladurée Patisserie, I wanted to try it for myself! I'm a real fan of sweet stuff, I usually need to eat something sweet everyday or I get grumpy. Look how excited I got when I got some! This photo was taken near the toilets in Westfield, a few girls walked past and gave me the wth look lol.
When I first rocked up at Ladurée, I was surprised at how many people are actually lining up. We were in the queue for about 15-20mins, the queue was long mainly females. I guess females are the ones with the sweet tooth lol.
They have these cute little candle sets available for purchase, a little on the pricey side but so cute. The lighting at Ladurée wasn't great so I ended up taking a million photos of everything and I had to select the better photos to stick on this blog.
I got myself 5 yummy macarons - almond marshmallow, raspberry, pistachio, strawberry marshmellow and the salted caramel. The macarons are priced at $3.20 each, a little expensive compared to others but still quite reasonable. All the good stuff is always in Sydney, why doesn't Melbourne ever get anything good?  Next time, I head to Sydney I will treat myself to more macarons! These are delicious little gems.

Are you a macaron lover like meee?

    1. Yes they do but the feeling is different when you go to Lindt, maybe coz there are so many around in melbourne it doesn't feel special anymore.

  6. Yumm, they look so pretty. There are definitely places to get good macarons in Melbourne! Try La Belle Miette in the CBD or Cacao in GPO corner Bourke St and Elizabeth street :)

    1. Hey Karen, ooh! I never heard of La Belle Miette, it sounds fancy. I will check them out. Isn't cacao the frozen yogurt place? or did I get it confused?

    1. lol that's true but then I've never purchased anything from topshop before. Stuff is too short for the conservative me lol

  13. Haha You are so cute! Mmm, they look tasty.

    I have never quite jumped on board the macaron train. They're yummy, but I'm just not sure about all the hype. There's a couple of places near me that have GIANT macarons for $2.80 though and they're not bad.

    1. I know huh, it's ok there will be a next time. Shame IMATS seem kinda small.

  19. Yum! I wish I wish I was in Sydney (or better yet Paris). Still, Melbourne has Burch & Purchese, La Belle Miette and Lux Bite. I wouldn't swap those for Laduree, though if Zumbo ever decides to make his way down here I'd be beyond thrilled.
