We are excited about the soft opening of Cobo House by the famous Singaporean 2am Dessert Bar in Sai Ying Pun set next to new coffee shop The Artisan Room.


Trained by world famous chefs including Thomas Kellar and Pierre Herme, Janice Wong has conjured up a list of creative desserts that are presented artfully. Her savory dishes feature fresh-grown herbs and ingredients sourced from abroad.


We were happy to have ordered a Thai house mocktail and really liked the highlights of the basil oil drips and spicy ginger juice.

We were impressed with the classy presentation of both foie gras mousse coated with thick layers of chocolate ganache as well as the tapioca cracker that comes with anchovy foam; and the fluffy charcoal mantou is much-loved for its tasty and tender slow cooked pulled pork filling.

We sampled a list of desserts which included the signature Tsujiri matcha tart, chocolate H2O inspired by dead coral at the coast of San Sabastian and popcorn, with passionfruit sorbet and slightly bitter yuzu parfait. Two of our favourites were cassis plum, garnished with elderflower yogurt foam and yuzu pearls. The malt ice cream served atop the Bailey’s cheesecake was also memorable.
