My brother Johnny brought these home for me (thanks 哥哥!), so all my judgments for Paulette’s are based off day-old macarons… which were still damn good. I’m typically not a huge fan of macarons; they were the cupcakes of a few years ago in New York, all hype. Everyone was selling them and everyone was eating them. I had Bouchons and some other places and while they were all good, I never understood why people loved them. They were airy and just nothing special. But it’s been a while now since i last had them, so maybe I appreciate them more now? Shrug.

I loved Paulette’s ganache because it had a consistency that reminded me of mochi. It was so good, I had four macarons in a span of five minutes and for anyone who knows me, that’s a lot considering I rarely eat sweets. I highly recommend you get their sweet wedding almond, earl grey, and pistachio macarons. And I personally would stay away from their violet and passion fruit ones… not because they weren’t good, but because they were really tangy when I wanted/expected something sweet.
