McCafé Macarons

I don’t know why McDonald’s is so irresistible. I always find myself attracted to it whenever I travel or simply cross the street. The bright M makes me forget the horrifying tale of Supersize Me. Anyway, one of the reasons why I visit McDonald’s in other countries is to find out how different these are from the ones in Manila. We all know that there’s the squid ink bun and taro pie. But I never thought that Mcdonald’s could be so fancy.

While looking for a place for lunch (which eventually became Sushi One), we spotted McDonald’s. The signage promoting its Salted Caramel and Tiramisu Latte caught our attention and skipped Sushi One’s tempting chocolate lava cake to try the latte.
We decided to stop by the famous clown’s place and ordered Iced Tiramisu Latte (HK$32, Grande) and added HK$10 to avail one Salted CaramelMACARON.
Yes, McDonald’s also have macarons. Fancy! (Trivia: In 2007, McCafés in Paris started to offer macarons in basic flavors.)
The Iced Tiramisu Latte was not very sweet making it a delightful and refreshing drink. (It was very hot that day.) It is also a perfect drink for the pastries the fast food chain offers.
The Salted Caramel macaron was quite big compared to the usual ones we have here in Manila. It tasted okay, nothing extraordinary. However, the texture was all wrong. It was too hard and chewy. At least, it tasted like salted caramel. Then again, what do you expect from an HK$10 (PHP60) macaron?

I feel sad though every time I check these fast food chains. They have more selections. Even Jollibee in the US has more options such as Halo-Halo shake! Why don’t we have these?!

It’s easy to spot a McDonald’s branch. But the one we visited was along Cameron Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.
