Obolo – A work of art!
We first took notice of Obolo when it opened its doors as a cosy little dessert café along Joo Chiat Rd, and boy are we glad to find Obolo situated right in the bustle of Takashimaya’s Food Hall. It won’t be difficult spotting Obolo at the Food Hall given its snazzy, eye-catching pink outfit. Certainly a girly attraction!
Stealing the spotlight is Obolo’s pretty little bite-sized cakes or “petit-fours”, which are made in true designers’ fashion – chic, classy and ready for the runway. These “petit-fours” are small enough to satisfy that sweet-tooth craving of yours without making you feel like you’ve gone overboard on your sugar in-take for the day. A box of six “petit-fours” costs $ 15.90.
There are more designs and flavours to choose from if you visit Obolo’s website, where they take orders online. [See http://www.obolo.com.sg] Our favourites at The Chocolate Space are the Guanaja Cheesecake infused with a 67% dark chocolate and the Tiramisu, which is filled with mascarpone crème and chocolate genoise, soaked with coffee, cognac and rum.
If you like macarons that are thick and chewy but are not traditionally the French-types (which are thinner), Obolo has some pretty fresh tasting ones. From its chocolate selection, the ruby and chocolate macademia macarons are real treats. A box of six macarons costs $14.40.
