From classic flavours to playful mashups, macarons come in a spectrum of colours and a host of flavours. While they are mostly enjoyed over a hot cuppa at a lavish hotel or brought as an elegant gift for your loved ones, who's to say you can't treat yourself to these delicate French nibbles at home? On that note, here are some of our favourite places where you can find the best macarons in Hong Kong. 

RECOMMENDED: Indulge in some local flavours instead and check out some of Hong Kong's best traditional bakeries.

Best macarons in Hong Kong

Pierre Hermé is the granddaddy of all things sweet. Since his first store opened in Tokyo in 1998, the brand now has over 50 stores located all across the globe. Bringing a touch of modernity and daring flavours to these classic sweet treats, Pierre Hermé does an unusual-yet-balanced range of flavours including citron caviar finger lime, salted-butter caramel, and the unrivalled milk chocolate and passion fruit. 

Dalloyau’s collection of indulgent flavours includes yuzu, black truffle chocolate, and salted caramel. Not exciting enough? Well, give the banana oatmeal, red bean, or the caramel popcorn a try. The secret to Dalloyau’s success is the addition of a homemade almond paste in the biscuit, which is preservative-free and uses only natural colourings.

Joël Robuchon may be known for its delicate pastries, sandwiches, salads, cakes, and popular afternoon tea. Not to be overlooked though are the outstanding macarons, which boast a more prevalent almond flavour compared to other biscuits in the city, thanks to the use of fresh, dried almonds instead of the powdered variety. Delicate flavours such as chocolate, sesame, and grapefruit, as well as the traffic light trio of strawberry, lemon, and pistachio, are definitely some of Hong Kong’s best.

Aside from the brand’s luxurious teas, Tea WG’s macarons are pretty drool-worthy too. Boasting a range of tea-infused flavours such as earl grey and chocolate, lemon bush tea, black tea and blackcurrant, and our favourite, Pink Garden tea and lychee, Tea WG's macarons use all-natural ingredients and are entirely crafted by hand. Perfect for tea lovers to treat themselves at home!

There isn't a huge variety of flavours to choose from, but with a CV this impressive, you know you can't go wrong with Little Miss Macarons.
