Lux Bite, South Yarra (Melbourne)

I *think* Lux Bite got onto my eating list when I put out a call on twitter for suggestions on places to go and gorge myself in Melbourne.  As soon as I looked on their website and saw that they had a Kaya Toast Macaron on offer I knew we'd be hitting up South Yarra ASAP!  I'm not a huge macaron fan, but after our visit to Singapore earlier this year I am a huge HUGE Kaya Toast fan.


They do of course stock other things besides Kaya Toast Macarons (like cakes, breakfasts, coffee) but I don't really care all that much about that. I was here for one reason and one reason only! Give me the Kaya Toast Macaron...NOW (please). The Boy thought it tasted exactly as he remembered the Kaya Toast in Singapore - but I'm still not sure. The big pat of butter in the center sure helped my memory of Kaya Toast along but the "jam" tasted different to how I remember - less sweet perhaps. The girl behind the counter said this version of Kaya was more like what you'd find in Malaysia rather than Singapore. I didn't know that Kaya was so regionally diverse.



We did indulge in a few other Maracons - for the blog you see. The Boy went with the Salted Caramel (very good), and I choose Coconut Pandan (so pretty to look at). 


Because we didn't know when we'd next be in South Yarra it seemed only wise to have "seconds" whilst we could. Another Kaya Toast macaron for me, another Salted Carmel for The Boy and a Peanut Butter + Jelly Macaron to share which was DIVINE! I just love anything with PB in it, and this was slightly sweet, slighty salty - the perfect combo.


Lux Bite are at 38 Toorak Road, South Yarra. They are open 7 days a week. Phone them on 03 9867 5888.

    1. OMG! WHAT! Kaya is a coconut/pandan type jam thing that is quite sweet. In Singapore they slather it on REALLY thing pieces of toasted bread that's got a big THICK pad of butter in the middle. Often you get it with a super soft boiled egg that you miss with soy and white pepper. It's SO GOOD!

  10. South Yarra was a must-go place for me in Melbourne too - simply for the macarons at LuxBite and the sweets at Burch & Purchese!

  11. Hehe the kaya toast macaron was what peaked my interest too! :P I didn't know that it was different from Malaysia to Singapore though. I've only had the Singaporean one.

  13. Love the way they set up their macarons in a rainbow style. And their kaya macaron is bliss - but maybe that's just the butter talking!
