Giant Macaron @ Delectable by Su, Kuala Lumpur

Sugar high friday. That I reckon is the best way to end the work week.

With these gigantic (think the size of your palm) French inspired macarons from the cake girl aka Delectable by Su, you will definitely get a sugar rush.


These hefty babies are priced at RM10 per piece.

But judging on the quality ingredients, size and of course its cuteness personified in clear boxes wrapped with the Delectable ribbons, every sen is worth it especially if your sweet tooth craves for macarons.


My take on the three flavours:

Salted Chocolate - pretty in sweet pink with a dark chocolate ganache centre. I loved the whole combination since I'm a big chocolate fan but I honestly couldn't taste any salty bits though.

Marmalade - the marmalade filling contains fruit peel shredded to give it a slight texture contrast. However, the marmalade needs a more tangy bite to it to undercut the sweet taste of the macaron shell.

Caramel latte - the most aromatic macaron of the trio with a coffee tingling aroma. The caramel within is lovely runny texture.


I admit I was a little taken back when I saw how large these were.

But the large size works well as there's more to bite in the shell. The top part breaks into delicate shards when you gently bite into it. Hidden underneath that shell is a layer of soft ground almonds that melds with the filling, making you sigh with pleasure after each bite.


Even though it scored high with lovely texture, I felt that more tangy flavours should be offered to those who prefer less sweet options.

Nevertheless, they are still incredibly addictive and of course, simply delectable with eye candy packaging like all the goodies in the Delectable by Su's shops. One warning though. The macarons are being made in small amounts, so it is best you call ahead to check their availability or you may leave empty handed.

ah, a new macaron place! since it's quite accessible (pavilion and gardens), my parents should be able to get them... if they call. :)

minchow said...

More tangy, less sweet, yes please! Braved some macarons lately and I couldn't remember anything else beyond the sugar rush and bouncing off walls!

Baby Sumo said...

I went looking for these in Delectable when I was in The Gardens this week but couldnt find any. I'll go hunt again this weekend.

KY said...

RM 10 to buy sugar rush and clogged artery! lol

Kenny Mah said...

I'm a big fan of the marmalade macarons! I had mine with some local coffee and it was divine! :)

dropsofcontentment said...

OMG, size of your palm!? That sounds like an immediate recipe for a sugar rush. It looks drool-worthy though! :D

Ciki said...

stupendously gorgeous!! Love your post boo!

Su-Yin -Décorateur said...

sooo cute!!! hehe
didnt realize u had already come for them.
Thanks for the feedback boo;
super constructive <3

Ciki said...

Just like Kenny Mah, my fav is the marmalade one!!

J said...

Oh my. Looks really good! :D
(Hmmm.. I guess rm10 is pricey but seems more reasonable than the much smaller RM4.40++ Nathalie's macaroons...)

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

i need a picture next to a normal macaron to see how big it really is but rm10 seems alot but i shouldn't be complaining since i pay the equivalent over here for one.

Noooooooooooooooo! there goes the diet!

Michelle - not a new place but now they sell macarons. Hope the parents discover this place. Also sells other goodies like cupcakes, popcorn, cookies and a wickedly good chocolate mousse.

minchow - I know how u feel! I'm always wide awake after that sugar rush. Maybe eat them with coffee like what Kenny suggests?

Baby Sumo - awww, I think we were lucky to score these from the Gardens but Su did say they sell out pretty fast.

KY - but but it's pwetty!

Life for Beginners - hmmmm, coffee with marmalade macarons sounds like a great alternative to toast I reckon! Thxs for the great tip.

dropsofcontentment - I know, they're super huge but after a few bites of it, you find yourself finishing it off and asking for more...

C&C - yippee, glad to know everyone likes macarons!

Su Yin - I didn't actually, ordered them to be delivered to me vide my cute messenger boy.

J - good quality ingredients indeed and of course, Su's wonderful ribbons to give it a finishing touch.

Joe - pix in the Flickr stream. As big as your palm is the best reference. Sorry, no time to go buy other macarons to compare.

Au&Target - diet? I thought diet is a dirty word for you??
