I like pretty mirrors like this
Noisette and the bittersweet chocolate macaron
I LOVE NOISETTE. I love the hint of hazelnut which was not too overwhelming. It did not overshadow the taste of the dark chocolate mousse. The crunchy feullitine at the base of the cake added an extra oomph to the cake. I adore cakes with a crunchy base. Especially when the base complements the cake perfectly, what is there not to like? In addition, there were hazelnuts embedded in the cake. The extra crunch gave a different texture to the cake and it was a good touch to the smooth cake. The cake was deliciously satifsfying. It's no wonder Noisette is one of the top 50 cakes in Sunday Times!
The bittersweet macaron. I'm a dark chocolate lover but I don't fancy chocolates which are too dark. The bittersweet macaron was just right for me. Not too bitter, not too sweet, just the way I like it. Definitely a competition against favourites like Canele or Sweetspot. Can't emphasize how much I loveeeee macarons hahaha.
We would have tried more cakes but they were practically out of everything else at such a late timing. I'll definitely return to try their signature cheesecake and new creations that Obolo has to offer! All that aside.. Can I have a Noisette now, please?
