#@%*!

Pardon my French, but I get all tensed up with the French Mafia’s in town. For the uninitiated, that’s just code for the Big Boss of the ze French company that I work for. Contrary to what you may think, I do not live a frivolous jobless life. I wish I did but I’ve got bills to pay. And for the record, I wasn’t looking at Kenny Mah when I said that.

A good friend tweeted me earlier, “Aiyo, if I have to work with ze French Mafia… I would just go mad and eat macarons all day. But they have to be good macarons!

Luckily for me, good macarons were within reach in the last couple of days.

Just over the weekend, Les Deux Garçons – of whom foodie goddess Masak-Masak absolutely doted upon earlier in the year – has finally opened up a gorgeous pâtisserie in the heart of Bangsar. And it’s about time too. Prior to this, it was a complete turn off having to pre-order their macarons online and I was most definitely not a fan of picking them up from a kitchen hidden in the depths of Taman Desa. So, I simply refused to buy any no matter how good they were.

I first gotten a taste when the Fairy Godmother brought over a dozen of their exquisite macarons and marble butter cake for my birthday. I was completely floored by the well-balanced wasabi flavour (with just a tiny hint of horseradish and slightly savoury aftertaste) and swooned over the pistachio. I’m never one to like these green flavours, but I instantly fell in loved with these two. They were easily the best macarons I’ve tasted here in KL. The cake was also amazingly buttery with a lovely whiff of espresso as I satisfyingly sank my teeth into its crumbly texture. It’s not everyday one comes across such well-made treasures.

So you can imagine my excitement when I heard about their new place that is located in a much more accessible neighbourhood. And in true Parisian fashion, I found myself seated by the pavement with Paranoid Androix and The Fairy Godmother, indulging in more than a few plates of prissy sinful desserts and washing them down with crazy amounts of illy coffee. You can call it a French Escape, I’d just call it an hour away from reality.

I guess not everything’s pissy and snooty when it comes to the French, eh?

I get my ideas out of my dreams… if you’re lucky enough to use something you see in a dream, it is purely original. It’s not in the world — it’s in your head. I think that is amazing.

      I am still in awe of it too. I love how it’s aptly named after the master architect of ancient Rome considering epic it was! Need to save up to have another. :)
