Good and Cheap Macarons at The Vanilla Place, Subang Empire Shopping Mall
When I said the word “MACARON”, I believe I get a lot attention here. Currently this is the most sought after desert in Klang Valley where teenagers and young professionals love this a lot.
Macaron is a sweet confectionery made with egg whites, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food coloring. The macaron is commonly filled with buttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies. Its name is derived from an Italian word “maccarone” or “maccherone”. This word is itself derived from ammaccare, meaning crush or beat, used here in reference to the almond paste which is the principal ingredient. It is meringue-based desert which made from a mixture of egg whites, almond flour, and both granulated and confectionery sugar.
The confectionery is characterized by its smooth, domed top, ruffled circumference (referred to as the “foot”), flat base, mildly moist and easily melted into mouths.
Orange and Yam Flavor Macaron – RM4.50 a piece
With a piece so huge which easily cost more than this in other place, it was a great bargain. Just look at the photo below.

The place that sell this awesome desert is “The Vanilla Place” located FK01, 1st Floor, Empire Shopping Gallery.
English High Tea Table Setup at the corner of the shop
Most of the F & B outlets were placed right at the Ground floor but some how The Vanilla Place are located near the launching place of the Lex Tube Slide.
Besides serving a range of kick ass deserts, the main course here are pretty impressive. The Vanilla place serve a range of pastas, soups and a good old plate of nasi lemak.
Let’s start with the soup in this case.
Onion Soup – RM9.80
Made fresh from the kitchen upon order shows the level of freshness served here. Every scoup out of the bowl gives a strong sauteed onion and boiled in to perfection.
Wild Mushroom soup – RM9.80
This is one of the recommended A MUST order. Just look at the photo below and you’ll get the idea. Thumbs up!
Every scoop you can taste the chunky mushrooms and done just right to my liking.
To spice up the great bowl of soups, you can consider to go for their range of daily fresh baked breads with special hummus and mint dip. You can dunk them in to the soups also.
Assorted Bread Dips – RM9.80
The next dish which I am going to recommend would be the “SET TEA FOR TWO” which will drive all the girls nuts. Girls love high teas. This is the perfect place for you gals!

Tiramisu – RM11.80, Served very homey style that at the rock bottom is the strong espresso taste, then moving up is the soft cake and moving up is the mascarpone cheeze. Use the long spoon dip till rock bottom and pull it up again to enjoy the taste of it. You will love it.
Pablova – RM8.80, Before we visit this place, the best title was held by Alexis. Now after we try the pablova here, they deserve the title champion of all!
