Melbourne Series – Queen Victoria Markets

——-29/10/2011——-

I always manage to make to time visit the Queen Victoria Market when I’m in town, more specifically the cake shop and borek stand @ the QVM! I love the colour and taste of their bubblegum flavour macaron that I haven’t seen anywhere else and Timmy likes the Turkish delight one.

We bought 4 for $10.50

Bubblegum: it’s as beautiful as it is delicious and the flavour and is spot on!

Tiramisu: very strong coffee flavour though I did find a patch of chocolate filling in my last bite.

Turkish delight: if you love Turkish delight, you’ll love this! It’s incredible when a macaron filling mimics another sweet so similarly but with such a different texture it makes your was think twice.

Salted caramel: Okay, not one of the better ones that I’ve had.

Usually afterwards I need a savoury snack, so I head to the adjacent stall where they make fresh hot boreks on the premises. A lamb borek- fresh, hot and slightly chili- YUM!
