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!
