As I sit here at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles in Pasadena, waiting for our dinner, I decided to blog about macarons…… again. Only because we just came from ‘Lettes Macarons from downtown Pasadena. Whenever we’re driving through town, these are a couple of the few places among Max of Manila and Pinkberry, where we stop to get our grub on.
As usual, I bought a dozen to go. I always feel like a fatty when I go there because I’m usually the one that has the biggest order out of all the people in line with me. Today, I noticed everyone buying the rose flavor. Never tried that, so I added a couple in my dozen along with some salted caramel, coffee, Rasberry, passion fruit, and lemon. I was a little disappointed that they ran out of Pistachio and Vanilla.
Biting into the Rose flavor was pleasantly…. Weird! It was like biting into a rose petal with a strong rose fragrance. The aroma and taste pungently became apparent inside my mouth and into my smell senses, as I masticated the delicate cookie. Never buying that flavor again, but I think it’s a must try.
