Obolo, a local start-up synonymous with desserts, has also opened a brand new dining concept Obolo Galéria at Rochester mall. It was first established during 2004 by chef-owners and couple Mac Woo and June Lee as an online pâtisserie and has since gained a loyal following. Other than its signature cakes and pastries, this Obolo Galéria is a bakery café that serves up a breakfast and brunch menu and other savouries such as fresh salads, sandwiches, pastas and pizzas.
Obolo is known for its French-styled macarons ($2.35) and it is said to be one of the best locally-made ones around. The flavours they offer are already very appealing, such as earl grey milk chocolate, salted caramel and mango-passion. But it was the cream white champagne marcaon with golden dust on top which captured our hearts – smooth, light, not overly sweet and with a subtle touch of alcohol.
