Les Plaisirs de Marie Antoinette

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Dessert|Spain

We began day two of our trip by walking towards the centre of the city itself. However we made a detour along the way to take in some more sights.

Casa Batlló, Barcelona
This unique and impressive looking building is Casa Batlló. This building was designed by Gaudí and served as a family residence originally.

Les Plaisirs de Marie Antoinette
On our way to lunch, we stumbled across an attractive looking shop; Les Plaisirs de Marie Antoinette.

Interior, Les Plaisirs de Marie Antoinette
It sold macarons and other assorted sweets like chocolates and toffees.

Canelés, Les Plaisirs de Marie Antoinette
We got ourselves a medium sized canelé for €1.50. It was soft yet chewy at the same time. We both loved this French treat.

Box of macarons, Les Plaisirs de Marie Antoinette
We also bought a box of 5 macarons. The macarons were priced at €1.20 each.

Assorted macarons, Les Plaisirs de Marie Antoinette
The flavours we tried were coffee, pistachio, cherry and chocolate passion. The chocolate passion flavour was a mixture of chocolate and passion fruit, hence the name. We thought the pistachio was the best of the lot, but the macarons were really rather average as a whole.

Oh well, that’s it for our unplanned snack! Stay tuned for a lot more sights and our second day’s lunch!

Ai Wei, haha, yeah, we’re always constantly craving for macarons! But there are better ones out there though. We’ll try more when I’m back in KL!
