I LOVE Macarons. Seriously. They are one of the very best desserts ever. They are light, flavorful and not overly sweet. Just perfect. Plus they are absolutely adorable. So you can only imagine my delight when there were Macarons EVERYWHERE in Japan (unlike the US). I have the hardest time getting my hands on them here in Indy. There are a couple spots to get them, but they seem to always be sold out when I try to get them.
While in a GIANT underground mall in Osaka, we were able to go to a pastry market with HUNDREDS of different desserts everywhere. It was overwhelming. Basically a building of drool...so I got a lot of pictures.
I don't know about you, but sometimes I get on Tumblr or Pinterest and I see thousands of images of macarons and cute desserts or toys that I just think, "Where do these things exist?!?" It's like they are images from far away lands of pretty make believe stuff. So it was kind of cool just walking around seeing pinterest-esque beauties like this. I'm sure everyone was getting a good laugh watching me squeal at everything.
We grabbed macarons for the whole family and me and Yukari split two macarons between us. A maple macaron and a caramel nut. I feel like a big part of our trip was food, and that was fine by me ;)
