Where to get the best macarons in Singapore
1. AnnaBella Patisserie
Taking inspiration from both Japanese and French recipes, handcrafted halal macarons are the show pony at AnnaBella Patisserie. What makes them special, you ask? The light Japanese cream that gives each bite a delicate sweetness. Flavours include rose, matcha, Earl Grey and lavender. And if you wanna get fancy, order the macaron bouquet, request for customised prints, get the macaron sushi belt or go all out with a macaron tower delivered to your door. You can even get adorable Disney-themed ones!

From home bakery to brick-and-mortar store, this Muslim-owned local brand has come a long way. Cakes, tarts, cookies, macarons… you name it, the team does it. And they’re not satisfied with standard flavours either. Treat yourself to a box of macarons for bites of Earl Grey lemonade, Korean wedding tea and lemon (aka green tea, muscat grape fragrance and lemon curd), yuan yang, and waffle crisp. Of course, popular variations like red velvet Nutella and dark chocolate are also on the lineup for you to get your sweet fix.

You might know The Dark Gallery for its chocolates, but it gets even better when you have them infused with a macaron! Love tea and chocolate? Try the aromatic Earl Grey Chocolate with a 38% milk chocolate ganache. For a tart yet saccharine bite, get the Ruby Raspberry that blends pink ruby chocolate with the fruit. So you’re a dark chocolate fan? The Very Dark Chocolate is a bestseller, with pure 85% dark chocolate ganache in between two black macaron shells, topped with a gold leaf.

6. TWG Tea
From homegrown brand TWG Tea comes tea-infused macarons that are smooth and sweet (but not overly so). Signature blends are used in the ganache, while the crunchy meringue shells are made with almond powder and egg whites for that luxurious, smooth bite. Get a gold-embossed box of these colourful treats to brighten up a mundane afternoon. Best paired with a cup of TWG Tea blend, of course.

7. Patisserie G
Artisanal desserts are the highlight at Patisserie G and the macarons don’t disappoint. Classic flavours like chocolate and salted caramel are always a delight. But for a more local spin, give the kopi butter or kaya iterations a go, we say.
