Cafe Cre Asion - Macaron Mania!


It is currently macaron mania in the Ramen Raff household. Aside from being  pastry morsels that come in various goody flavours, they are an absolute work of art. They've been locally brought to us by the likes of  Jean-Michel Raynaud and Adriano Zumbo. Now, there's a new pastry Chef in town named Yu Sasaki.
Thanks to Chocolatesuze, I discovered a hidden gem owned by Chef Yu called Cafe Cre  Asion. They sell amazing macarons with flavours that will blow you away! It's a new and humble cafe tucked away in Alberta Street Surry Hills.










Even with the heavy rain this Thursday afternoon, with all my ramen power, I ventured out to Cafe Cre Asion. No rain will keep me away from my precious macarons! As I entered the premises, the heavenly looking macarons welcomed me. Chef Yu, kindly assisted me with picking the flavours. Besides buying a box of 8 macarons which cost $21, I bought extra 3 (at $2.70 each) macarons to devour while I stayed and had a chat with Chef Yu. The caramel and Dear Chris (based on Universal restaurant's golden gaytime dessert) flavours.
Box of 8 macarons ($19)

Top left to bottom right: green tea, lemonade, caramel, vanilla, pistachio


The macarons had delicate shells and very slight chewy texture in the middle. They are perfect. The caramel flavour was my absolute favourite (apparently, so does most of Chef Yu's customers). It tastes like dulce de leche but less of the overpowering sweetness. As Chocolatesuze mentioned in her post, the pistachio macaron tasted exactly like a pistachio nut (my second favourite) The green tea macaron was nutty in taste with matcha tea flavour after-taste. The lemonade was citrus in taste but not acidic. The vanilla macaron was like most vanilla macarons. I liked it too!





Cafe Cre Asion macarons has the great potential of becoming the next big macaron phenomenon. The taste stays true to its flavours names. The macarons at Cafe Cre Asion is yummy for my tummy!
