Ladurée Finally Opens in Manila

(Photos taken with Iphone 6)

I can't believe Ladurée has finally opened in Manila! This is their first takeaway boutique in the city (Although I wish it they made it a full tea house. That would have added more to the charm of Ladurée since macarons are perfect with tea!). For those of you who do not know, Ladurée is one of the best makers of the famous double-decker macaron. My love for French Macarons started a long time ago before they became cool! My favorites are the raspberry and pistachio macarons.

Each macaron is flown in from France and costs P150 per piece. The price is almost the same in other countries but it may be a bit too expensive for Manila. We'll see how it goes but hopefully it stays. Pierre Hermé, next? Fingers crossed.

Laduree is located at 8 Rockwell, Makati (In front of the Poweplant Mall).
