An Atlantan In the Bay: Macaron Time!

Chantal Guillon MacaronsHayes Valley, San Francisco, CA, USA

I bought this one macaron – the Tuxedo macaron. It was for father’s day originally but truth be told, I bought it because there was whiskey in it. Whiskey is one of my favorite liquors, even though some may say it’s not becoming of a lady. (Neither is tequila okay?) I have to admit, at first I thought I would be turned off: I don’t have a sweet tooth, not at all. This one particular macaron was coated in sweetness (see pic). However, the amount of smokiness in the whiskey was just enough to pair nicely with the sweetness of the macaron.

– great little treat, satisfies the sweet craving of someone who doesn’t have a sweet tooth
– good portion (not super tiny)
– cute decoration
– good amount of whiskey in the actual macaron (but not enough to get tipsy)

– none

This was so good that I actually convinced two other patrons who came in after me to get it and they also both agreed that it was super tasty. Having had Laduree in both New York and in Paris, this was a very nice surprise. I’ll definitely stop by again! You can find them just down the street from Patxi’s deep dish in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco:

Please stop by, it’s super cute and relaxing!
