Sweets from Singapore
With the weather still chilly, we’re banking on at least a few more weeks until we have to think about baring it all for bikini season again. That makes it the perfect time to head over to Singaporean import Cobo House by 2am:Dessert Bar (8-12 South Lane, Shek Tong Tsui, 2656-3088). With Janice Wong—two-time winner of Asia’s Best Pastry Chef at Asia’s 50
Best Restaurants—on board, you can expect more than a little razzle-dazzle, with seductive desserts including the Cassis Plum ($138) made with plum wine, yogurt, elderflower and cassis meringue, and the Chocolate H2O ($128)—an edible art piece featuring aerated frozen chocolate that mimics the coral of the San Sebastián coast. Another play on textures and temperatures is the Tsujirihei Green
Tea Tart ($108, right) with an oozing warm liquid matcha pastry. A savory menu will be launched later this month, but for now the sumptuous sweets are more than enough reason to stop by.
