Laduree: Chic Macarons!

Laduree is a famous name when it comes to macarons. It is a luxury bakery that goes all the way back to 1862. However, it rose to fame in 1930 when the grandson of Louis-Ernest Laduree, Monsieur Pierre Desfointaines had the idea of sticking two macaron shells together with a ganache filling in the middle. And as they say, the rest is history. source: Laduree

My cousin who is based in France, arrived early this month and I told her I wanted some Laduree macarons. And aside from the "pasalubong," she even took photos of the shop. Merci!



The shop doesn't look like the usual pastry shops. From afar, you'll think that this store is selling perfumes or other beauty items.


They sell marmalades and jams, too. Then there's the tote bags and pouches and collectible boxes.


A visual feast.


And with chandeliers to booth! I bet they're real crystals. :)


Macarons. Lovely colorful macarons. I'd love to stare at them the whole day.


Truffles.



They even have Laduree Champagne! I love bubbles. ;)


And there's my brown box of macarons. Ola got the blue retro-ish box while Anna got the cylindrical one. Merci Beaucoup, Ate Mona. Mwah mwah!


Stay tuned for my Laduree Macarons review next time. :)

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Going to Vietnam is not complete if you haven't had a bowl of pho, a slice of bahn mi, or a cup of coffee. In our case, its a glass of iced coffee.
