La Petite Sourie

2801 MacArthur Blvd, Ste A, Santa Ana, CA 92704

While my friend Pauline and I were out and about in Santa Ana we decided to try a new macaron place. Flavors from top to bottom (pictured) include Passionfruit, Pistachio, Lemon, Mocha, and Blackberry.

My picks were the Passionfruit, Pistachio, and Blackberry.

The Passionfruit and Blackberry (pictured bottom right) were delicious. Both macarons had great texture and a taste that was well balanced, not too sweet or tart. I especially enjoyed that the Blackberry didn’t taste like straight jam which has happened with other macarons. 

The Pistachio (pictured top right) however, well I’ve had better. The flavor just wasn’t there for me. I don’t know what else to say about that. The texture seemed a bit off from the other two as well.

Pauline stated she enjoyed her Lemon and Mocha macaron. The lemon was a bit tart but not too overwhelming and had great texture. She had no complaints about the Mocha macaron.

Overall I think they’re a bit small but for $1.55 each + tax = $1.69 they aren’t too bad. I do feel that the ganache to macaron ratio is off. I think they’re being a bit stingy with the ganache. If you preview the top right photo you will know what I mean, and all their macarons are like this. I would give this place an 8 out of 10. 

I don’t normally wear lashes but decided to take a request and try them out. I’m rocking the Ardell Professional lashes in 110 Black. They’re natural looking which is why I choose them and I must admit I like the effect they have. They’re not too crazy and the lash doesn’t feel super heavy on my lid. I was a bit hesitant with the adhesive since I didn’t know how much to apply so my right eye came out way better then the left lol.
