The Star and I have always wanted to go to Obolo but as we both stay in the West (and we absolutely detest the fact that most of the good food are in the east), and Obolo is not one of the top to-be-visited places on our list, we kinda let it slip our mind for awhile. However, one night I wanted to have Astons for dinner and The Star was saying "ah hah! you don't know which Astons I'm gonna bring you" Hahaha obviously I thought we would be going to like ghimmoh, or sixth avenue or cathay. I was brought to the East Coast Road outlet instead. Surprise! Haha. After we parked and were walking to Astons, we chanced upon Obolo!! Hahaha and I was quite excited. Even though The Star already had a dessert place in mind, we still went to Obolo before that haha. We are such gluttons haha



Obolo's a pretty small place which will not accommodate too many people comfortably. We were lucky that we were the only ones there at 1015pm. We had the whole place to ourselves and the luxury of taking our time to select our tastebuds-pleasers

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?
