Miette Patisserie, San Francisco, CA

One of my favorite macaron flavors has to be hazelnut. It’s rich and nutty! Hazelnut flavor macaron is like one of the standard that every shop should have along with vanilla and chocolate. Of all the places I’ve tried, my favorite hazelnut macaron has got to be the ones from Miette Patisserie.

Miette Patisserie made their macaron with ground almond with the skin intact. And unlike most macaron shops, they do not use food coloring in their cookie shell and buttercream. Also, instead of placing them in the refrigerated display, they place them in these really cute jar. So as you move along the line, they are right at your eye level–super catchy and mouth-watering.

Okay onto macaron tasting…so one major reason that Miette is one of my favorite macaron shop is because they have the chewiest macaron cookies! They’re thick and they are chewy! After a bite, you can see individual grain of almond meal that come together. The shell is also not as smooth as other shops because they coarsely grind their almonds. The buttercream is also to die for! It’s so light and super, duper silky! Yup, silky!

If you do plan to visit Miette Patisserie at the Ferry Building, try going on a Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday afternoon, when farmer’s market is also present! I can easily spend half a day there enjoying the lively atmosphere and delicious food!
