Yes ANOTHER food post but it’s winter and we just. want. to. eat.
Abby and I have long been fans of J’aime les Macarons in Christchurch which started in 2008. I discovered them when they opened their first shop on my street in Christchurch and since living in Auckland I always visit them when I travel home and make sure I come back with a big stash. They also did an amazing tower for my wedding. I know macarons are quite common now but these ones are truly something special you just have to try them.
In Auckland you can get your hands on them at Dizengoff Cafe on Ponsonby Road but this week they are doing a pop up at Citta in Bloc, Mt Eden. I went there this morning and Bridget the owner (who is super lovely) is there selling an amazing selection of flavours.
I think my new favourite flavour is the After Dinner Mint and Abby is pretty crazy about the Salted Butter Caramel but you really can’t go wrong with any of them.
So go check out the pop up at 20 Normanby Road – there’s a great cafe upstairs at Bloc so grab some macarons to have with a coffee.
