Macaroons & More at Europane

WildSwede | Jun 3, 2008 02:30 PM

Yesterday after lunch at Indochine, I had a hankerin' for something sweet and stopped into Europane. I could not decide and asked what kind of Macaroons they had (around 10 different varieties, I think) however, my mind hazed over after I heard the Sea Salt Caramel and Pistacio. So I ordered two of the SSC and one Pistacio ($1.65/ea). Each macaroon is about 2.5" in diameter. I also ordered a custard and raspberry tart ($3.85) and two dinner rolls (.60/ea) - one that was currant/rosemary and another was sourdough. In the car on the way back to work, I ate the currant/rosemary roll and, of course, it was fantastic. Nice and chewy on the outside, soft but not too fluffy on the inside and so good! Ate the sourdough one a little later and it was equally good. I grabbed a SSC macaroon and came back up to the office. WOW! Chewy cookie; soft, billowy, creamy filling; and the SSC had a small mound of crunchy sea salt in the middle on both the top and bottom. I have to say - that was pure chewing satisfaction!! The crunch of the salt, melded with the chewyness of the cookie and throw in a little creamyness of the filling and you have something amazing. Had the pistacio one when I got home and it was really good as well. I am saving the other SSC macaroon and the tart for tonight. Damn, now I am craving them!!
