pierre herme has opened up yet another boutique on the right bank in paris. this one is located on avenue de l’opera in the 2nd arrondisement. it’s a relatively huuuuge store, although the offering appears to be limited to macarons, chocolates, pre-packaged cookies and frozen treats. alas, one still has to trek to rue bonaparte for the croissants and cakes.
i popped in a month ago or so…being drawn like a moth to its miss gla gla sign-post. miss gla’gla is a rectangular log of exotic ice cream & sorbet sandwich between two rectangular macaron shells. it comes in 7 different flavour combinations: ispahan, celeste, mosaic, satine (which is the one i tried. the flavors are passion fruit, cream cheese and orange), caramel, chocolat, and montebello.
it’s delicious and exquisitely flavoured in that way only ph can achieve. that said, i wish that miss gla’gla came bite-size — like one of the small macarons. (that’s hubs’ thumb in the upper right hand corner of the picture). still it’s pretty spectacular and the packaging is shiny and sleek!
