Huge Macarons for $1.50 at PanYa21 Jan 2011, Posted by Panya in
I’m not going to lie, the PanYa macaron is not the best or even second best in the Village. That said, in this over-priced city, if you just need a fix, you simply can’t beat the value. Only a $1.50 for a macaron that’s bigger than a golfball! That’s more than two times the average NYC macaron. So what’s the catch? The main shortcoming of this cookie is that the crust is very fragile and “crackly.” It’s almost like they were sitting around too long. The flavors themselves are solid, it’s only that texture problem. I’d like to try these when a fresh batch comes out and see what the deal is.
Panya Bakery is located on 8 Stuyvesant Street. Use this map if you don’t know where this is..
Dessert Truck comes close with their large macarons for $2.00 + you can get them in holiday theme shapes.
