I have previously posted a blog on Angelina Singapore Cafe but since I am on a macaron pilgrim, I popped over to its Boutique to get the remaining flavours that I have not yet tried.
At Angelina, Macarons come in box of 4s, 8s or 20s. I got hold of a box of 8 macarons. They offered a total of 10 flavours. Pistachio and Raspberry were out of stock on my visit. Lucky, these were the flavours I tried previously.
Angelina Macarons Shell Taste and Texture
The shell of Angelina Macarons look pretty rough though the rest of the perfect macaron element exist. Unfortunately, one of the macaron, was with a huge pocket of air on the top. As a result, the crisp was chip off.
The macaron was richly coloured with soft interior. It was lacking of the chewy interior.
Cassis (Blackcurrant) Macaron
It was a fruity Blackcurrant fragrance in the macaron. But as always, such flavour remains me of cough syrup. Fortunately, it does not taste like one.
Frambosis (Raspberry) Macaron
Raspberry, likewise was fruity and was more sourish.
Citron (Lemon) Macaron
The most sour among the fruity flavour was the Lemon. Tangy, zesty and lemony.
Chocolat Passion (Chocolate Passion fruit) Macaron
This was the second time I tried the Chocolate Passionfruit. The flavour wasn’t too consistent. First was more chocolate while the second attempt was more of Passionfruit. I prefer the latter though.
Mont Blanc (Chestnut)
The chestnut was far too faint. I would prefer to give it a miss totally.
Pistache (Pistachio) Macaron
Pistachio impressed me most. I wouldn’t mind having a box of 8 of only Pistachio macarons.
Vanille (Vanilla) Macaron
Vanilla was too subtle hence it seems like it was a sugar loaded macaron instead.
Caramel (Caramel) Macaron
If you wouldn’t mind the typical caramel taste, this isn’t a bad choice.
Café (Coffee) Macaron
Bitterness of the coffee was a little too strong for a macaron. Other than this flaw, it was all right.
Chocolat (Chocolate) Macaron
Nothing surprising, an usual chocolate tasting macaron of dark chocolate.
NAHMJ’s picks are the Pistachio and Chocolate Passionfruit macarons.
