Copied from Wikipedia - A macaron is a sweet confectionery. Its name is derived from an Italian word "maccarone" or "maccherone". This word is itself derived from ammaccare, meaning crush or beat, used here in reference to the almond paste which is the principal ingredient. It is meringue-based: made from a mixture of egg whites, almond flour, and both granulated and confectionery sugar.
Now we KL folks can have macarons too! Wow, we don't need to fly to France to get it.  :)

I have bought macarons from 3 different bakery and let's see the review from me now.  ;)

1) Whisk Espresso Bar & Bake Shop located at LG 03, Empire Shopping Gallery, Jalan SS16/1, 47500 Subang Jaya. Tel no 03-5022-2060

The mini macaron is selling at RM2 each and with the purchase of 10 pcs, you just need to pay RM18. Their macarons look very cute and nice, and the taste is OK. I would give it 2.5 out of 5 points. Ohya, they are selling the big size macaron at higher price, RM5 each.

2) Babycakes located at The G City Hotel, G.02A Ground Floor, 199 Jalan Tun Razak, 50400 KL. Tel no 012-2190069

Better call to reserve the macarons before you heading to the shop. The macarons prize from RM2.20 to RM2.50 but the size is much more bigger than Whisk. So it's quite worth and the taste is superb, I would give it 3.5 ouf ot 5 points.

3) Nathalie's Gourmet Studio at Unit 4-1-5, Dutamas Solaris, Jalan Dutamas, 50490 KL. Tel no 03-6207-9572

The shop is quite hidden, it's located above Tutti Frutti Dutamas Solaris.

They have many flavors for you to choose and it's always available. Their macarons is nice but I found it a bit too sweet, and a bit expensive, RM4.40 each. I would rate it 3 out of 5 points.
