Balsamic vinegar, wasabi, olive oil, truffles– these might sound more like seasonings to a meal rather than macaron flavors, but Patisserie La Douceur offers some of the most unique and tasty flavors I’ve yet to try. (The last time I had macarons from Paul and Sadaharu Aoki, I found them to be too sweet. Gasp! #livinginTaipeitoolong?) The colorful confections can also be gifted in some of their adorable packaging.

Each morsel is not cheap though as this plate of four was almost NT$300. That’s one way to make you savor each bite. The wasabi is not as spicy as I expected it might be and the balsamic & salted chocolate ended up being my favorites of the day.

The store is adorable inside and out and can fill up quite quickly during afternoon tea time.

I still love their made-to-order apples and caramel mousse mille-feuille and when it’s strawberry season, they make an even larger one that is made of strawberries! These aren’t on display, so be sure to ask about them unless one their cakes or gelato catches your eye.
