MakMak opened on south kingsteet Newtown and its an unassuming shop where you can buy some tremendously good macarons. The retail store is open at 601 King St Newtown.
Singular counter, bits of decor around it and lots of botanicals/greens – the new range is “botanicals” and there’s a printed poster on the wall. There’s already a queue.
I dropped in round 2 pm and it seems like it was selling out. The strawberry, vincotto and pink peppercorn is quite pretty with the artwork on top.
Box of 5. Pretty as.
Rose water and rhubarb, strawberry, vincotto and pink peppercorn
So here’s a glance at the flavours of macaron available from Makmak. There’s a Gin & Tonic one. Mother’s Ruin.
Excellent Macarons. Perfection shells and fantastic flavours. These won the timeout tastetest to become Australia’s best macarons. Well worth seeking out.
