I’ve been in search of some French Macarons (different than ‘macaroons’) like those from La Durée in Paris…and Philadelphia’s own Miel Patisserie has them! They are a bit different than the ones à la Paris, but they are still damn good nonetheless. Miel also has a dizzying array of other French pastries sure to please. For a perfect companion to the macarons, get a cup of Organic Black Coconut Tea from Premium Steap, just a couple blocks away.
THE GOODS: French Macarons, currently in Coconut/Chocolate, Strawberry, and Pistachio flavors
THE PRICE: $14/pound, which buys you around 30+ macarons ~ a really great deal, I think!
WHERE: Miel Patisserie ~ 204 South 17th Street, Philadelphia ~ 215 731 9191
