Taeguki Ice Cream Macaron Sandwiches

Located in the outside patio area of Taeguki, the all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ restaurant, is a dessert station which offers ice cream macaron sandwiches, ice cream mochi, and red bean waffle sandwiches.

I spotted the colorful ice cream sandwiches during a dinner there a few months ago but was obviously way too full to eat one after eating all-you-can-eat bbq. So recently after shopping next door at Zion market, Mr. K and I made our way over for some ice cream.

Each macaron sandwich costs $4.05. The flavors don’t really correspond with the colors. Vanilla has a purple shell, strawberry has a green shell, green tea has a pink shell, etc.

We chose vanilla and green tea. I like how the ice cream sandwiches came in individual cardboard holders. The macaron shells had a chewy and delicate texture and the ice cream was solid enough not to melt right away and was creamy throughout. The macaron sandwiches are a good size, with both of us easily finishing one each.

Overall, we found these to be a good option for a quick dessert after shopping in the area. It’s not necessarily the best macaron ice cream sandwiches, but they have a good amount of flavors and taste pretty good.

  1. Ooh I’ve been so curious about these! I also never have room for them after Korean BBQ either but I’ll have to stop by next time I’m in the area.

  2. Those are the cutest things! I went to TaeGuKi last year but didn’t see this stand so it must be from this year! I can’t exactly tell what size these are from the pictures. Are they the size of regular macarons? ie slightlyy bigger than a soda cap? Or are they a little larger than normal because they are stuffed with ice cream? (I wish I knew how big that tong was for comparison)

    • these are bigger than regular macarons. it’s about the same size as other typical ice cream macaron sandwiches, not sure if that helps.

  3. Looks like from your photo that these macaron ice cream sandwiches are actually sourced from a company called Brick: https://www.facebook.com/brickpage. I’ve seen them available in restaurants throughout the San Gabriel Valley/ Koreantown as well, they seem to be all over the place!

    • thanks for the info! i was curious where they came from because it didn’t appear like they were making it themselves.
