Patisserie Sadaharu AOKI paris – Macarons, Demisecs and Bonbons Chocolat
If Buku Buku Hour is the mascot for the Japanese Sweet Collection, AOKI is probably the symbol of Macarons in Japan. Highly raved about in Japan and Paris France, the Macarons use a combination of special selected ingredients to portray the best flavour and melt in the mouth effect. It is real good but good thing don’t come cheap, it is pricy and probably one of the most expensive Macarons we even come across, however, if this is viewed as one of the best Macarons in the world, its intrinsic worth and the quality substance may allow them to command a premium as well. We were told one Japanese woman bought 500 pieces of Macaron in one go during the first day of the event …we are bewildered the extend of the popularity.
Price: Macarons ($34 for 6pcs); Demisecs ($75 for 300g); Bonbons Chocolat ($25 for 3 pcs)
