Nice macaroons!

Small setup, but with bit of outdoor seating, and it's really windy outside. The salted-caramel macaroons are the nicest.

Gorgeous sweets that are as good as they look

Like most of the other cafes and bistros circling the outer perimeter of Rochester Mall, Obolo has limited indoor air-conditioned seating and lots of alfresco tables. Surprisingly, alfresco kind of works here, because the 3-storey high atrium makes the open area so incredibly windy.
 
 Obolo specializes in all things sweet. Or used to, at least. Although it primarily still serves desserts, it now has ventured into the savory and churns out a small selection of western-styled bistro fare as well.
 
 We had:

1) Chocolate Truffle Mousse ($7.50): mouthwateringly divine. It had a crunchy bottom, with layers of airy mousse and soft sponge, great textures at play here and a rich, but not cloying, sweetness

2) Molleux Au Chocolat Maracaibo ($12): served with vanilla bean ice-cream and cocoa streusel was a lava cake enlivened with crunchy Oreo crumbles. Really decadent and catered to the chocolate lovers, I would have liked a little bitter elements to contrast with the sweetness of the rest of the chocolate

Obolo Galéria opens at Rochester Mall

Must tries: Champagne macaron, lemon meringue tart
Rochester Mall in the One-North vicinity is the new F&B hotspot. Obolo, a local dessert start-up, has opened Obolo Galéria, its new bakery-café at the mall.
First established in 2004 by chef-owners and couple Mac Woo and June Lee as an online pâtisserie, Obolo has since gained a loyal following for its macarons ($2.35 each) – try the champagne marcaon with golden dust on top – smooth, light, not overly sweet and with a subtle touch of alcohol. In addition to Obolo’s signature cakes and pastries, Obolo Galéria serves up a breakfast and brunch menu, and other savouries such as fresh salads, sandwiches, pastas and pizzas, with varied success.
The rather ordinary cajun chicken sandwich ($7.50) is messy to eat and tastes much better warmer, while their Thai green curry and chicken pizza ($16.50) leaves a wanting impression – it could do better with a stronger curry flavour.
Try the cakes instead: The salted caramel cheesecake and beautifully purple Le Cassis are good starting points. The light and fluffy texture lemon meringue tart ($6.50) with the right touch of zest is one of our favourties.
