I'm utterly addicted to Mitzy Budiono's macarons from Itzy Bitzy Patisserie, but one aspect of the macarons at Tafu was bothering me. What was the delivery schedule?! There were conflicting reports so I needed to go to the source herself, Mitzy.
here in Midtown Lunch comments, I manned up and emailed Mitzy about my confusion (and love of her macarons.) She set me straight:
"Regarding the delivery, most of the time is early Monday morning before they open. In addition to that, when the stock is running low Tafu will let me know and I will deliver it the following day. Tafu is the one who decides which flavors and how much they want to carry in their store, so I can only suggest and try to work something out in order for them to carry all my monthly flavors and in enough quantity." - Mitzy
So there you go guys and gals, Monday morning is the time to go.

P.S. I'm beginning to suspect that a macaron black market is forming. If anyone has a Hojicha, I am willing to pay top-dollar and/or in Snickerdoodles. Your anonymity will be respected. -Blondie
