Macaron" not "Macaroon"...pronounced "MAHHCARRRON"

  • Dec 15, 2010

Paulette, the Beverly Hills based French bakery has made my dreams come true and opened a new location in downtown LA.  I trekked through rain and rush hour traffic to Little Tokyo Galleria to get my hands on these puppies.   Yes, definitely worth the frustration and frizzy hair! 

These Parisian macarons (not to be confused with American macaroons), are filled with ganache, made with almond flour,  are gluten free and Kosher certified.  There is lots to choose from and many reasons to keep coming back.  Among the 14 flavors they offer:   earl grey tea, violet cassis,  Madagascar vanilla, sweet wedding almond (my favorite!) and Sicilian Pistachio, not to mention some seasonal flavors (rose, passion fruit and pineapple and coconut).  These morsels of heaven come in packs of 2, 4, 6, 12, 24 and a tower that holds 60 for parties.

To my surprise and delight Paulette also offers LA MILL Coffee, tea, bobas and slushies.  Their setting is comfortable and parking is a breeze (First hour free inside Little Tokyo Galleria parking structure). 


my kind of 6-pack!

                                         Their signature gift boxes



                                                     Where to begin?


                               Arrive early!  These babies go fast!

DUH-LICIOUS! I've heard about these treats but, was holding off on trying them out....wasn't sure if they were worth it, etc. BUT, after reading your review, consider me convinced :) Thanks so much for sharing! Also, you may have a good time checking out and/or posting to the Bakers and Pastry Lovers Community.

Good to know, Erika! By the way, did you mean to post a review about macarons? I don't see a review... I'm one of Lunch's community managers, so please feel free to let me know if you need a hand with that :)

Actually the post IS my review. Is that allowed? I'm not sure how this works.
