You spend four whole
days with three other girls, and you all just talk and split into groups of
two. Everyone talks, and you listen – you talk, others listen.We walk up the street of Hardware lane
looking for our little patisserie, which many have recommended we try for
It’s not like the lane
was long, but being short on time due to our flight in less than three hours –
it was “long”. But we got to the end of the lane, and still could not find our
little store. That is when Jess says, “I asked you girls if this is what we
were looking for, back there.” Yes, throughout our four days together, we had
actually tuned out on one another more than we should have.
So, we backtracked. It
wasn’t entirely our fault to have missed it, there really wasn’t a sign and the
store was rather small. But it was our fault to have all tuned out on our dear
friend. Actually, I do believe Feli or Candice heard Jess, but had
misunderstood her – thus just merely nodded at her and kept trekking on.
I’m not one to usually
buy macarons as I believe they are over priced for such a small little piece of
delicacy. But with everyone talking about how good it was, and I admit the
pretty design of the store, I could not resist. I am a sucker for such pretty
girly things, and this was just that. Sadly, due to time – I could not snap
photos of the store.
The flavours they
offered were different; Candice mentioned the Moët and blackcurrentwas her favourite. It was so
delicious that she was incoherent.
$15 for six. $30 for twelve.
I managed to try two
flavours before my family had devoured the rest when I got back to Sydney. The
salted caramel was simply divine; I loved how all the flavours balanced so
well. The shell was over a crunch on the outside and the chewy-ness in the
middle. Nom Nom~
The pistachio was
nothing out of the ordinary, or maybe I was just still floating on my salted
caramel heaven when I was eating pistachio. So, I wasn’t blown away by it as
Never the less,it is worth a try if you really do like
your macarons – like Candice. Where is your favourite macaron store, or are you
like me – these little things are too expensive for it’s size when I can pay
$1-2 more and I’ll get a slice of cake!

We finish lunch and
head over to look for our DFO. However, the walk over we see a nice little
stand of gelato, what better way to finish lunch? The cold winds was not even a
factor to stop us from buying this!
Feli and my eyes
simply sparkled with delight once we say the boysenberry!Not many places offer the flavour, and
we were so excited. After trying various flavours, I had opted for one scoop of
… BOYSENBERRY! And Feli had the Baci and Boysenberry.
The boysenberry was
seriously so yummy! The sweet boysenberry was just enough for me to constantly
eat my ice cream for more. Ahh … thinking about it again makes me want some
The Baci was a
delicious chocolate hazelnut gelato which offered pieces of hazelnut which
offered a nice crunch in Feli’s ice cream.
After such an
experience, and considering we were already late to catch the shuttle bus we
decided to visit Baci again as we were walking back to the hotel to pick up our
The boysenberry was a
must have for Feli and I – and we told Candice “you have to have it” It also
had to be the one on the bottom, so we finish our ice cream with the “better”
flavour. Our additional flavour was honeycomb, it was nice but after eating it
for a bit – you may either get too used to the honey or the honey taste simply
Candice also had the
blood orange, it had a funny after taste – she ended up throwing it out.
Do you know where
there are some really nice Boysenberry ice cream in Sydney, as typing this up
has me wanting some right now!!
