We’d recommend skipping both lunch and dinner if it means saving some room for Chef Wong’s art-on-a-plate desserts. The chef, founder of Singapore’s acclaimed 2am:dessert bar and crowned Asia’s Best Pastry Chef (Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants) in 2013 and 2014, has crafted two new dessert degustation menus at Cobo House that reveal just a glimpse of her creativity and passion for patisserie.
The whimsically named menus, Memories of Childhood and Hues and Colours of Taste, feature three desserts, each paired with either a mocktail or a cup of Janice Wong’s custom-brewed tea. For instance, take the utterly beautiful strawberry caprese above, a multi-layered confection of raspberry fluff, strawberry ice cream, fresh and vinegar-cured strawberries, tapioca pearls infused with cherry- and orange-blossom water, tonka-bean snow, Chartreuse jelly and strawberry soup. It can be paired with either the Rosy No 2 mocktail (hibiscus tea, grape juice, lemon juice, rose syrup and rose vanilla foam) or Chef Wong’s marzipan rose tea, which were chosen to complement the delicateness of the dessert. Diners are also welcome to bring their own wine.
