The quest for the best macaron in Singapore resumed today. I’ve heard much about Jewel’s macarons but I wasn’t sure whether it could be better than Et Artisan Sweets, my current favourite in Singapore.

They had 10 flavours but one box could only fit 8, so I picked 8 flavours. Each piece cost $2.00++. There’s 10% off for UOB and POSB/DBS card members.

 

The shell

The as you can see, the macaron shells are piped quite ugly. A crispy top and chewy interior makes a good macaron, but this didn’t quite fulfil that. The macaron shell was indeed crispy outside and chewy inside, but it was also very brittle and cracked too easily. Some of them even had hollow areas. I didn’t experience this with Et Artisan Sweets.

 

The filling

They sure have very unique flavours like salted egg, black garlic and chilli. They also have sour flavours like passionfruit and raspberry so this is good for those who hate sweet macarons. I personally liked the salted egg one. There were traces of salt grains too. the chilli and black garlic was also very interesting and wasn’t offensive at all. The raspberry rose was also good. The rest was forgettable.

 

Overall, I think I prefer Et Artisan Sweet’s macarons as they made the perfect shells and the whole macaron was done more prettily and equally delicious.
