Maison Georges Larnicol

Just went to shopping around the corner. Montmartre is a liberal area with many 99 cent trinket shops stores catering to tourists. There are two sweet shops Maison Georges Larnicol (7-9 rue de Steinkerque, 75018 Paris) and La Cure Gourmande Montmartre – they’re under handed and I found the sales women rude at Maison Georges.

They’re charging up scale $ with 99 cent store mentality. For the paper bag, I’ve to ask for twice and seeing the reluctance. Maybe the Europeans’ frugality is saving the world. No one dare to say no when asking reasonably for a free bag in the USA – No one beats the Americans for service. They tasted ok. My review on Yelp. Ladurée is also good.

The sales tax breakdown:
Tx 5.50,
Ht 16.97
Taxe 0.93
TTC 17.90€

The following day for the convenience I went there to buy a box of macaroons for Beijing. Ha. it cost €25. The price of the macaroon is €5.5 for 100g, about 8 pieces. I just don’t get it why would they charge that much more for a cheap container. It clearly (pun intended) doesn’t worth it and makes the cookies looking so cheap. I have no choice but to pay because the distance I’ll have to bring to. Oh the Frenchy. The ending isn’t too pretty: after the security check at the airport, most of them are ruined.
