I finally got to try Bar Dolci’s macarons after having ignored the pretty array of sweets, thinking that nothing could ever top Bizu’s. But I was wrong since Bizu’s macarons have long been dethroned in my book thanks to my new fave: TWG Manila macarons. Read on to find out how Bar Dolci’s macarons fared.
Bar Dolci has, by far, the most extensive selection of macarons. I spotted never-before-seen flavors like Banana Choco, Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Thai Tea, etc. So many appetizing flavors to choose from — I surely had a tough time narrowing down my choices!
But I was able to select five from the zillion flavors. I got a free one, too, under some promo they’re currently running (buy 5 get 1?). The free macaron they gave out that day was Strawberry. Not quite sure why they selected Strawberry though… is it like Bar Dolci’s kulelat flavor? HAHA!! Somebody tell me, I’m serious!
Anyway, here’s me with the six macarons (Php50 each). No, I did not have all those to myself; I just had a portion to taste of each one. My thoughts (clockwise, from Lemon Curd macaron):
- Lemon Curd – Good lemon macaron, but nothing really that sets it apart from other lemon macarons I’ve tried.
- Salted Caramel – A disappointment. It tasted nothing like a salted caramel macaron. It tasted more like butter cream to me.
- Ferrero – Yummy, gooey core! Definitely a great take on the well-loved chocolate ball.
- Strawberry – Very tarty, but great just the same. It had a lovely, slightly sweet, slightly sour flavor to it.
- Mint Chocolate – I loved how this one had a strong minty kick!
- Chocolate Caramel – My favorite <3 I love the mix of a dark, rich chocolate and sweet caramel filling.
Based on my experience with the macarons alone, I would give Bar Dolci two thumbs up! But thing is, my Bar Dolci experience isn’t done yet. See this mouth-watering display of gelato? I’m going for it next time!
