I have a secret crush on macarons. ❤ I originally wanted to try the macarons @ Laduree, but ended up trying Dallayou instead, at the suggestion of my girlfriend.
Over the holiday weekend, we decided to venture up the coast to Malibu. First, we swung into the Malibu Country Mart, then went to check out Zuma Beach.
Before heading out, I read online and saw photos of Zuma Beach with crystal clear water, but it was far from. =(
The only area of beach that I’ve seen clear water was in Laguna Beach @ Shaws Cove. Anyhow, the drive back down PCH was beautiful.
I’ve had cake, cookie, cupcake, and even macarons…but what is a whoopie pie! They look sinfully good!
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Williams Sonoma is offering heart shaped macarons on their website. A+ for presentation, however I’m not sure how they would taste. Here are my favorite picks:
#1 Bouchon Bakery
#2 Jin’s Patisserie
#3 Jerne @ Ritz Carlton MDR
As many of you know, Jin’s Patisserie in Venice (Abbot Kinney St), has the best macarons I’ve ever tasted. Even the ones over at the Ritz in MDR, don’t come close to the exquisite texture and flavor Jin’s has to offer. I recently had a chance to try a macaron from Bouchon Bakery in Vegas, and was blown away at the texture and taste. I tried their limited edition egg nog macaron, and it was so heavenly.
You can find a Bouchon Bakery inside of Venetian in Las Vegas. Enjoy!
One of my new found hobbies is cycling by the beach. I love sharing this experience with my friends. Here are just some random pics from our outing today. Here’s Miss Young, rocking the Schwwwwwwwwwwwin!
Today was another fun filled day which consisted of cooking, shopping, dining, and the movies. We ate at this super good restaurant at Clark Quay called “Jumbo Seafood”. The name may sound cheesy, but the food would totally put Capital Seafood and Sam Woo Seafood to shame!!! We had chili crab, cheese fried shrimp, fish w/sweet & sour like sauce, and sharks fin soup with crab meat. The seafood was ultra fresh and the restaurant was very modern inside.
After diner, we ventured out to watch “Ip Man”. It’s a chinese movie, but there were subtitles to help out the non-chinese folks like me. =)
Okay, enough rambling… Here are more pics for you to enjoy!
My next posting (day 5) will have NYE pics from Zirca! XoXo.
