Tucked in the heart of the vibrant night scene, Nectarie is the place to go if you want some desserts after dance and booze.
There is an assortment of 7 macaron flavours to choose from and each costs only $1.17 (including service charge and GST). Miss Glitzy bought 4 macarons for the taste test.
The macarons are small and dainty, but the surface of the shell didn’t look very polished. However for only $1.17 per piece, the macarons were nicely packed in a Chinese takeaway box whichwas quite a novelty. The unique packaging is already worth the money and it makes a cute and affordable gift!
Teh Tarik: The shell crumbles easily but the macaron retains acceptable level of chewiness. The Teh Tarik macaron didn’t taste that local but this was probably the first tea flavoured macaron we have tasted that actually kinda worked. The tea flavour in the after taste was somewhat refreshing.
Lavender: This was the prettiest of the lot. The macaron shell was a pale lilac colour with bits of lavender on the shell. As there was no rose macaron, we bought this for the taste test instead. The shell tasted crumbly and dry, somewhat different from the Teh Tarik. There was no strong lavender flavour and the chocolate filling appeared measley.
Chocolate: The texture of this chocolate macaron was very different from the Lavender – it was very moist and chewy. If you were to taste this without opening your eyes, you might mistake it for a brownie.
Green tea: The green tea macaron was obviously smaller than the rest and the chocolate ganache looked really generous. There was not much quality control in making the macarons. The green tea flavour was quite dull and Miss Jazzy wanted to rinse off the dull after taste!
The M Connoisseurs applaud Nectarie for its affordable macarons and unique packaging. Quality wise, the macarons were rather average.
