Decadent Pralines & French Macarons From Sinfully by Makati Shangri-La at Greenbelt 5

When I saw this store the last time, I heard drum rolls in my head for I remembered reading about it from Cebu Pacific's In-flight Magazine last month.

It was one of those stores highly recommended for its decadent concoctions and unparalleled craftsmanship.

The great thing is they have this huge glass window where potential clients can take a peek at their latest creations and drool over them, so to speak. I think it was ingenious of them to invite the crowd this way for it has led to some form of effortless marketing.  In fact, while I was there, I overheard two to three clients ordering by the bulk and from the tone of their voices, I gathered that the boxes of pralines were to be given as gifts. You will understand why when I show you how the box looks like.

Although you'll hear sophisticated elegance screaming from the store's interiors, their staff members were some of the most down-to-earth and gracious people I've met. In those few precious minutes, they made me feel special although my purchases were not as many compared to the others.

One of  the store's specialists recommended six of their bestsellers and I was glad that I listened to her suggestions.

From Left to Right: Salted Caramel; Miel (Dark Choco with Honey); Peanut Butter; Violette de Coco (Ube with Coconut in White Choco); Pistache (Dark Choco with Pistaschio); Italian Kiss (Milk Choco with Amaretto & Coffee)
Price: Php 60 per piece 

I must admit though that the price is a bit steep for me; but, I think you can't put a price on a pastry chef's years of culinary experience, right? For it was pure heaven when I sank my teeth into a piece of praline! With just the right amount of sweetness, the pralines were still in every way decadent.

The Flavors:
Red     :   Raspberry

Yellow :   Dalandan
Price   :   Around Php 50

If you ask me Sinfully's macarons are much better than Bizu's because of the former's generous filling and much refined texture. If you're looking for last-minute give-aways, why not go for Sinfully's delish pralines and macarons instead? Oh, you'll never regret it.
