I have walked by Paul Lafayet at K11 quite a few times and always wanted to try.
Finally tried the Blueberry Chocolate dome. It's a rich, chocolate mouse encasing a small blueberry core. I must say that the balance between blueberry and chocolate is probably 20/80. Although I love chocolate, given the name of the item I was expecting something with a little bit more balance. Nonetheless, this was excellent.
At HKD 40 a pop, this is as pricey as the Mandarin Cake Shop. But with a location in Shatin, at least now I do not have to travel to Central for a chocolate cake fix.

want to buy something back to Hotel
then i found the shop!
the shop that i've heard for long time but havent try it yet.
i bought Mocha & Sesame Macaron and a Macaron Pie
I like "Mocha Macaron" the most, it's so pure and the flavor had stayed in my mouth after I finished it.
Then I bought another 3 pieces afterward
(forgot to take picture for it )

thanks my bf for this special treat for the valentines day! macaron is something that looks cute, but very expensive and not worth the price in my opinion. so i have never thought that i will have a chance to try this thing. my friend who visited France a while ago said macaron is too sweet and tasted kinda like soup well i kinda agree with her now after i tried these.
first of all we tried chocolate. bf said that's the best of all coz it's real chocolate filling. for me i don't really think that's chocolate-y enough for chocolate flavour. it's a bit too sweet for me as i prefer bitter dark chocolate more. i will give a 3 out of 5 for this.
sesame has a very strong flavour that covered the chocolate taste all up. all i can say is it is what it is, with tons of sugar in the filling. 3 out of 5 for this.
again coffee is very strong flavour too. it's also very sweet. i think it's the sweetest out of all actually. i personally like coffee so i will give it 3.5 our of 5.
here comes the mistake that we have put this macaron to the very last. oolong is kinda weak comparing the 3. so actually i couldn't tell this is oolong until my bf said so. then i tried very hard to taste the residual in my mouth but sorry, i could only taste the coffee. i bet i would like oolong macaron if i had it at the very beginning. you know what, coz it isn't so sweet comparing the rest. well, maybe. i don't know if it tastes oolong so i can only rate this by sweeteness. 3 of out 5.
this guy is all in white that i thought if that's coconut. my bf said oh shoot maybe we should have tried this first coz it could be even weaker than oolong. but out of expectation i could tell that's jasmine by a so very little bite. it smelt pretty decent too. it kinda surprised me coz i didn't expect that would be jasmine and jasmine could be that strong. but then again there were 1/2 taste coming from sugar. i will give it 4 ouf of 5. yay, you win.
maybe macarons are mean to be sweet. if they aren't they aren't macarons. and valentines are meant to be sweet too. so thank you my dear. it's a nice experience to try something new with you. here i wish i will be there to try every new thing with you in your life.

not good at all!!!!! those macaroons....ill
crazyone=) (2 Review(s))
After having dinner with my beloved friends....i get to K11 and grab some macaroons from Paul Lafayet on my way home...
The macaroons look quite good and packaging look decent....
I bought rose, pistachio, champagne, raspberry and ginger.......
First the rose one, i bought two since i rmb it is highly recommended by loads of people...but sadly it taste like using cheap rose extract oil and the macaroons are too crunchy....aren't
the pistachio one aren't good at all too.. from the color of it...i know it is not gonna taste alright...the color is definitely artificial and i ended up having greenish fingers after having it...back to the taste....ermmm....i can't taste of any nutty flavor from pistachio...i can only taste sweetness...hmmm...NEXT
the champagne one.....totally speechless....i can only taste very tiny slight of champage from it...and the top layer macaroon(white one) are too crunchy......OMG and the hot pink macaroon make my fingers turn from greenish to pinkish...creepy...
raspberry one are too sweet...again a very tint of raspberry flavor...and loads of sweetness....i think i need an insulin injection after having that....and that raspberry fillings are full of food colorings....
last but not least...ginger.....best of all i can say....since it surprise me with the spicy, warmy taste from it.... for this one it aren't too sweet....but still the macaroons are far too crunchy as i can say.......
p.s. I know that they aimed to sell freshly made macaroons to customers...but any patisserie must know that macaroons are the best when it is placed under the fridge for 1- 2 days before serving...where the macaroons and the fillings will fuse together to get the right taste..
Overall....it is like eating caster sugar and buttercream icing.. and they all end up tasting like the same one all different flavor of macaroons taste like the same to me and they are all FAR TOO SWEET
To me, Laudree macaroons are the best where still not one shop that can compare with it.... i think next time i will try their creme brulee..and i am hoping for better results...

After hearing so much about their famous creme brulee, i decided to try it with some friends.
it cost $40. The burnt sugar on top was a bit too burnt so it had a bit of a bitter taste. The custard filling could be sweeter, and honestly i like the creme brulee i made at home more.
I wouldn't go buy it again.
I also bought the maccha macaron, since i love all things green tea. I decided to give it a go. To be honest i quite liked it, people say their macarons aren't that good, but i think the maccha one was good. If you like green tea, you'll like it.
I also tried the maccha mousseline with crispy base. That had a very strong green tea flavour, so green tea lovers, you'll like it. But beware, it's so strong that it borders on the line of bitter. The base was very good though.
Would i buy it again? no.
My friends also tried the tiramisu and the chocolate mousse.
Tiramisu was pretty good, but then is it worth $40? No. It tastes exactly like the tiramisu you can buy at other bakeries, like Arome bakery or Maxim, for half the price.
The chocolate mousse (it's in a cup) has a REALLY strong chocolate flavour, so much that it made my friend dizzy. It's kind of like fudge.
If you're soso with chocolate taste. Don't buy it, it's not worth $40
