Dainties Macaron

Dainties Macaron is a baking up everyone's favourite bite-sized French confections with a Korean twist. 

When it comes to sweets, macarons already have mass appeal as being the cutest and most colourful treats a few bucks can buy. 

dainties torontoBrothers Justin and Julian Kang are making them a little more interesting, though, by introducing some new flavours into their macaron mixes. 

dainties torontoHead to this small Chinatown counter to find 14 macaron types available daily ($2.95 each), and 8 types of larger macarons stuffed with ice cream ($6.95 per sandwich). 

dainties torontoFlavours rotate daily, and some sell out faster than others. Vanilla is a no brainer, but what makes Dainties interesting are macarons made with injeolmi (a Korean rice flour), roasted black sesame, matcha, and a delicious, citrusy yuzu. 

dainties torontoEverything here is mixed in the kitchen, and macarons use two types of housemade French buttercream before sandwiching fillings made in house. 

dainties torontoEach macaron is preciously packaged and showcased at the counter. They're delicious, with a sticky, chewy, texture.

dainties torontoMy personal favourites are the milk tea and Oreo: a multi-coloured treat with real Oreo chunks incorporated in the actual macaron as well as the filling.

Make sure to refrigerate your macaron and consume it within three days, if you don't plan on eating it right away. dainties torontoThe macaron ice cream sandwiches are epic. These hulking things definitely need to be eaten immediately, unless you plan on rushing to the nearest freezer.
