Chantal Guillon Macarons

When I first saw the macaroon photo at my friends Facebook page, I immediately wanted to get my hands on them. I love sweets and macaroon is one of my favorite too. Chantal Guillon is the name of this macaroon and tea shop. I think its previous name was Paulette or something like that. It's located at Hayes Valley in San Francisco. It's a small shop so be sure not to drive pass it.

Want to see the macaroons that we bought?

The Macaroons in a box of 6
 Pistachio, Rose, Salted Caramel, Orange Passion, Vanilla & Dark Chocolate

I don't really remember the flavors that well even from looking at the photo. My favorite would be Rose and Salted Caramel. It doesn't have that artificial rose taste or fragrance. Salted Caramel was really an interesting one. First you would taste the sweetness the slowly it'll turn salty. It would be great if I had a cup of tea while eating the treats.

Don't you just love the cute packaging? After finishing the tasty macaroons, I don't want to throw away the box. I am the type of person who loves to keep cute packaging in case I need to put stuff in.
While this place isn't worth the super hype but it's definitely a place worth trying if you are in town for some macaroons.
