Macaron lovers have another reason to be excited with the recent opening of La Belle Miette on Hardware Lane. Run by Maylynn Tsoi and partner Huge Morley, this new patisserie serves macarons prepared the Parisian way.
Meaning ‘beautiful, small thing’, La Belle Miette offers a rotating menu of twelve macarons at any time, with an innovative selection including Cherry Blossom with Sake, Violet and Blueberry and Raspberry Ganache (all $2.50). Traveling to Paris to learn the city’s method for making these mini-marvels, Maylynn explains “French patisserie grabbed me early because it’s difficult, highly technical and tastes exquisite. Specialising in macarons enables me to explore an endless spectrum of flavors and ingredients”.
In addition to macarons La Belle Miette serves Mariage Frères tea, Gravity Coffee’s 6 Degrees blend and a selection of Hansi Lemonades from Alsace, the traditional home of macarons. Plus they’ll even be getting an outside license in the next few weeks – everything the discerning macaron lover could ask for.
