(1-4: will never come back, 5: pass (I’m okay with a tinier morsel), 6: acceptable, 7: okay, 8: good, 9: Wow! Please enlarge my morsel. 10: Perfection. I could eat a morsel of this every day!)
Will come back? Yes – For some reason I always find myself in this area
What I ate:
Hazelnut Pithivier – Puff pastry and hazelnut Frangipane
  • 8/10
  • Portion quite big for the price
  • Not too sweet and quite flaky
  • I liked the hazelnut filling because it was nutty and quite thick
  • The pastry itself had many layers but it could have been more buttery
Came for international macaron day –
Lychee Macaron (pink)
  • 6/10
  • One of the worse ones because there was no lychee flavour whatsoever
  • It was also on the sweeter side
  • The macarons at Thierry are bigger than other places and shells aren’t as crispy but they are thicker
Cassis macaron (purple)
  • 8/10
  • Quite liked this one
  • It was sour and had a jelly on the inside which added a nice tartness to it
  • Just the right sweetness
Lemon macaron (yellow)
  • 6/10
  • Another disappointing one
  • Couldn’t taste lemon flavour – could have tasted more authentic and more like a lemon
  • Wasn’t sour at all
Salted Caramel macaron (brown)
  • 8/10
  • The salted caramel macaron was salty but not too salty
  • The cream filling in the middle was very creamy and had a smoky caramel flavour to it
Maple Pecan Macaron (the one at the far end)
  • 7/10
  • This one was a bit on the sweeter side because of the maple flavour
  • The maple flavour was quite intense
  • Wishes there were more pecans in it to add more crunch and nuttiness
Summary: At Theirry the macarons are thicker and bigger than other places. I would want to try their other baked goods after trying their Hazelnut Pithivier
