We have buy 4 of those best seller macaroons and it is indeed super expensive as each macarons cost us around HKD 23.00 each. We bought the Pétale de Rose (Rose Petal), Caramel Fleur de Sel (Salted Caramel), Ghanaa Chocailate and Framboise (Raspberry). One of my favourite is the Ghana Chocolate which brings you with the intense of chocolate flavours in it. The Salted Caramel fares a good point to where it comes with the caramel sweetness in it. Nicely done.
Though the price is expensive but it is worth for once in the lifetime to try them.
