All The Pretty Macarons at Bar Dolci

I know a feature on the fancy macarons  is a wee bit late since these French pastries have been taking over Manila for quite a while now. You see ’em everywhere and everybody tries to bake these days!

On a Friday night, indulging my sweet tooth is the last on my list of to-do’s. But we were in Burgos Circle, a spot we don’t usually go to for gimmicks or drinking sessions, so we ended up popping into all the cute pastry shops we haven’t tried before just for kicks. One of the restaurants we spotted was Bar Dolci, a cozy cafe and gelateria.

I like the orange walls--they're color theme, actually.

The cafe has a pretty spacious al fresco area but inside, it’s pretty cramped. Although they have tiny tables for two inside the cafe, they barely have enough space to accommodate a 10-person line. We weren’t complaining though since we had all these to stare at:

Although we didn't buy gelato, I'm sharing this photo. They have a wasabi flavor, which was all out that night. Wonder how that's pleasing to the palate.

See how colorful and pretty they all are?

And now on to the macarons, the star of this blog post! See how colorful and pretty they all are?

Closer now. Hehe.

The flavors they have are a lot more exciting and interesting than the usual ones I see from other shops. They have dark chocolate, peanut butter & jelly, blueberry cheesecake , ferrero and even Thai green tea! I’m not sure how they come up with these flavors but they sure know how to gastronomically and visually tickle their customers. Just look at how vibrant the macarons are. It’ll make anyone buckle under its prettiness. 😀

Julls' bought a box of 10 macarons!

One macaron costs 50 pesos and since I already purchased a box of macarons at another shop a few minutes before we went here, I didn’t buy a single flavor. A friend bought 10 pieces, packaged in this box. There was an assortment of flavors here, including the ones I mentioned before. The best one though–in my opinion–is the salted caramel. It’s a flavor that’s easy to love and is seriously–and genuinely–delicious. :)
