I love the place (especially their tea), but they're quite the photo Nazis when it comes to the little bungalow. I wasn't allowed to snap inside. Poo on them.
We came home with this.
12 macarons for $17. Steep? Not compared to Bouchon, Payard, or even Bottega Louie.
We were very happy to have duplicates of hazelnut and tea. They were two of my favorites. My top fave was probably pistachio, but I am generally in love with anything pistachio-tinged. All the macarons were so light and delicate with impeccable cream fillings. They weren't just different colors. Their flavors were absolutely distinct.
The current Monkey Macaron Standings:
Payard > Jin Patisserie > Bouchon > Euro Pane >>>>> Bottega LouieBottega Louie is a distant fifth, but it deserves a mention because it's so close to us.
What do you think? And, if you've been to Paulette, how do their macarons compare? What other macarons do you like in the Los Angeles area? Enlighten me please.
Some day I'll make it to Ladurée....
