Quintessentially French, these tiny meringue-like desserts make for the perfect pick-me-up! But not all macarons are created equal. In a city full of them, finding that moist, chewy, melt-in-the-mouth version can be quite the task. We rounded up some of the best places to score a delicious macaron in Singapore – rest assured, you will be back for seconds.
Macarons.sg was started by Founder and Executive Chef Kevin Teo in 2013 because of his wife’s love for macarons and that spurred him to make macarons for a living. Quitting his job, Kevin started baking, taking in orders and soon opened a shop.
Halal-certified, there are about 28 macaron flavours for you to choose from. On top of regular flavours, Macarons.sg brings unique Asian flavoured macarons such as the Asian Honey Mango, Chinese Lychee and the Chinese White Peach. The flavours have been expanded recently, adding Ondeh Ondeh, Bandung and Thai Iced Tea to the menu.
Besides the regular-sized round macarons found in their store at Syed Alwi Road, Macarons.sg also offers wedding door gifts, macaron towers and even 5-inch giant macarons that can be used as unique birthday cakes.
Located at Ngee Ann City, you have probably already fallen in love with Ladurée. This chic Parisian bakery chain is famous for their macarons world over. Try their rose petal macaron or vanilla for a more classic option. Other than macarons, they also sell Chocolates, Candy, Teas, Jams, Honey & a wide range of accessories.
For the uninitiated, Antoinette is as close to a mini French experience (in Singapore) as you can get. In addition to the cakes, this patisserie is known for offering twelve different flavours of macarons. Try the “Chloe” – an exotic name for an equally beautiful citrus yoghurt and yuzu macaron.
Located at Raffles City and new outlet, Scotts Square, Bonheur Patisserie offers over thirty flavours of macarons, ranging from Vanilla to the surprising Thai Iced Tea version. They also do a great range of character macarons that can add that little spunk for adults and kids alike!
This homegrown, international brand offers macarons infused with their signature teas. No matter what your choice of drink, there’s bound to be a delicately made macaron that you relish. The two sweet pieces of delicate meringue made with almond powder and egg whites meet a luxuriously smooth tea-infused ganache, a perfect match for TWG’s signature tea. We also love that they are at Changi airport and can make for nifty last minute gifts!
You probably know Robert Timms for their coffee and savoury Aussie classics. They are also home to giant alcoholic macarons (non-alcoholic versions available too). Kahlua or Jack Daniels, whatever takes your fancy; we are just happy they make them massive!
