Walking through the door of this tiny café, I spotted their huge selection of macarons that they had on display - some your usual flavours, and the rest of them, unique with an Jap/Asian spin.
The Boyfriend and I selected four to share amongst the two of us, and we decided to go for the more unique flavours.
From L-R (clockwise): Thai milk tea, Dear Chris (chocolate hazelnut), yuzu, green tea!
I particularly like the Thai milk tea most, and so does the Boyfriend - tasted just like that Thai milk tea drink! If you like the drink, then you will definitely love this macaron.
The Dear Chris macaron tasted a fair bit like the Ferraro Rocher chocolate and being the chocolate lover, the Boyfriend appreciated the flavour more than I did.
The yuzu was very citrusy, but I find that it was a tad too tangy for my liking. Then again, I don't like anything that is tangy so you get the drift. :P
The green tea macaron had a very subtle flavour, I could barely taste any matcha-ness. I love my green tea so I definitely wish it was stronger.
I really like the texture of the macarons which were very consistent between all four of them - crisp on the surface, chewy when bitten in, with the perfect amount of filling.
I can't say for sure that they are the best macarons in Sydney as many have claimed, considering I have yet to try all the places, but I definitely prefer Cre Asion to Zumbarons, and perhaps I'd say that they are on par with La Renaissance.
The next time I am back in Sydney, I might or might not return to Cre Asion. I have a never ending list of places that I'd love to try, but if I were to live in Sydney, who knows, it might be a different story altogether. ;)
You know you want one! ;)
