What’s there not to love about macarons?

You might remember the snaking queue at Ladurée when they first opened in Singapore. Suddenly, almost every bakery stocked macarons. The two light and crisp cookie shells sandwiching jam or buttercream filling – is the ultimate indulgence for dessert lovers.

We recently came across The M Plot which offers macarons that are handcrafted with a unique flavour selection, ranging from Classic Dark Chocolate to their signature – Salted Egg Yolk x Curry, which was inspired by the Singaporean all-time favourite dish “salted egg yolk prawn”.

For Your Sweet Tooth

Prior to starting his business, Ryan Yong, co-founder of The M Plot was a former Senior Quantity Surveyor in the construction industry.

Despite his initial lack of knowledge in the F&B industry, he spent years learning how to perfect the texture and flavour of his macarons. “I did not go to culinary school, it was self-taught. I had done a lot of research on how to make macarons,” he added.

4 years ago while on a long break from his former job, he took a trip to Paris to visit his sister and immediately fell in love with French desserts. He was intrigued by the flavours, textures and how each dessert was eye-catching and delicious. Ever since that trip, Ryan decided to put all of his time into making macarons.

One of their iconic signature flavours would definitely be the Salted Egg Yolk x Curry macaron. While most Singaporeans would be more familiar with the sweet macarons, we were pleasantly surprised when we first tried the Salted Egg Yolk x Curry flavour.

The Salted Egg Yolk x Curry was inspired by a local all-time favourite dish, “salted egg yolk prawn”, it took us 3 months in order to achieve the right ratio and flavour layering!” he exclaimed.

With just one bite, you will be delighted with a mouthful of salty creamy egg yolk and curry spice flavours. It’s truly a rollercoaster ride for your tastebuds.

One of their best selling flavours would be the Lychee x White Chocolate. So if you’re not as adventurous and looking for something on the sweeter side then this is the perfect choice for you.

Ryan also mentioned that his personal favourite flavour would be the Ginger x Chocolate. The chocolate ganache is infused with blended ginger and a slice of candied ginger in the middle of the macaron which elevates the overall taste of the dessert.

Their macarons are also 100% handmade and natural – they use only natural extracts like fruit purée to get the colour and flavouring, so they can only produce limited quantities each day.

Since their first debut at Artbox 2017, they see more returning customers and are starting to take on more events. They have taken on events such as Winter Wonderland at Gardens By The Bay and a pop-up at Orchard Central back in August.

The M Plot does their macarons right. They’ve got everything from texture to the flavour nailed down and not only are they Instagram aesthetic worthy, they taste pretty damn good too.
