[SG] O'Coffee Club | Do you hear the Christmas bells jingle?Friday, December 05, 2014
With so many Christmas offerings to choose from in Singapore, I guess we are all spoilt for choice! But here are some quality goodies and gifts that I would recommend, which made our calories count!
Jolly Mud Pie | $12.20/++ per slice
If you are a fan of O'Coffee Club, you shall be familiar with their signature chocolatey Muddy Mud Pie. This is a twist on it for dine-in only, comprised with layers of strawberry sorbet, honey parfait and almond nibs covered in an Italian mint meringue. Loved the whole refreshing combination of a melt-in-your-mouth tangy and sweet touch with crunchy texture resulted from the bits and biscuit base.
Joy | S$9.00/++ per piece
Another special dessert for the festive dining is this - Grand Marnier parfait with raspberry sorbet in the centre and sweet almond nibs nicely decorated atop. The orange-flavoured cognac liqueur, Grand Marnier, which is widely being used in desserts, could certainly warm you up for Christmas!
O'Coffee Club has introduced four log cakes with 3 NEW flavours this year, with the highlights being the White Lychee Christmas S$58.85 / 1kg, Mont Blanc Yuletide S$53.50 / 1kg and Santa's Macadamia Noel S$63.15 / 1kg.
This chocolate Swiss roll is beautifully wrapped with dark chocolate ganache, cream cheese and praline feuilletine. I loved that the moist and soft chocolate sponge wasn't overpowering while the crunchy wafer-flakes added a textural element to it.
Note: Sliced selection from these log cakes are also available for both dine-in and take-away orders.
|Classic Christmas Stollen S$14/400g|
This fruity handcrafted Stollen, a traditional German Christmas Cake that filled with golden sultanas and mixed fruits and lightly coated with snow sugar, would surely lighten up your holiday! Apart from this, O'Coffee Club's Traditional Fruit Cake S$18/400g with mixed fruits and nuts soaked in rum shall be a scrumptious gift for your loved ones too!
|Pralines Gift Box of 12 (Assortment) | S$24|
|Christmas Macarons - Box of 4 - S$9.65 | Box of 12 - S$25.7|
These pretty candy-coloured macarons must be the all-time favourite for ladies. Some interesting flavours going on here - for Christmas Edition, they have Earl Grey Marshmallow, Gingerbread, Grand Marnier Sesame; for Classic, they offer Bitter Sweet Chocolate, Caramel & Peanut Butter, Coffee, Mango Passion, Strawberry and Coconut. I loved the various flavours that was offered, though the crust was a tad too thick for my liking.
Not only kids would die for these cookies but adults as well! Artisanal Christmas Cookies made from premium ingredients include Oat & Raisins S$13.50/jar, Checkerboard S$18.00/jar, Sable (French Butter Cookies) $17.00/jar, Dark Chocolate Cookie $9.80/pack, Gingerbread $6.95/2pcs. The melt-in-your-mouth Sable is a must-try for us 'cos it's just so irresistible!

With the wide variety of offerings specially catered to this Christmas such as soup, salad, pasta (I would highly recommend their Chicken Truffle Mushroom S$16.00/++) and main course, as well as the two desserts shown above (Jolly Mud Pie and Joy).
