OLLELLA, a modern French pastry store well-known for their signature, airy crisp choux pastries filled with fresh cream and layered with different flavours and textures, have opened their second outlet at Takashimaya.
If you haven’t already watched me eat their amazing mooncakes in my Tried & Tested video review, just click here!
Besides the full range of their signature choux pastry and a variety of melt-in-your-mouth chewy Macarons, OLLELLA has also launched their latest heavenly creations – salted caramel, popcorn-flavoured Chouquettes – exclusive to their new Takashimaya store.
Also on the menu is their exquisite Strawberry Champagne Choux as well as a decadent Holiday Collection for the Festive Season accompanied by their very first Advent Calendar Goodie Box.
Here are just some of the amazing goodies from their Holiday Collection that I had the pleasure of personally sampling:
Well-known for their popular original airy and light chouquettes, you can now enjoy their new flavour – salted caramel popcorn, a lovely balance of sweet, salty and crunchy created specially in celebration of the opening of their new store.
Log Cakes / Mini Christmas Trio $28-45
These fun, quirky and adorable “log cakes” come in three unique flavours and shapes: the Santa Belly Mousse Cake – a white chocolate mousse cake filled with strawberry gelee, almond sponge and a hazelnut praline crunch base for the ultimate bite, the Vanilla Yuzu Snowman – a tangy and sweet combination for those who prefer traditional flavours with just a slight twist, and the Banana Caramel Reindeer – a rich, well-rounded flavour that is both satisfying and addictive all at once.
For those who want to sample all three, the Mini Christmas Trio presents all three flavours as entremets – small sizes equivalent to one slice of cake and priced at $28 for all three flavours.
Christmas Cookies $6-25 (prices vary for each flavour)Expect a range of Christmas cookies that includes their best seller, the Double Chocolate Chip which is made using premium 64% Dark Chocolate and cocoa powder scattered with sea salt, for just the right balance of sweet and salty goodness. Other seasonal favourites include their Almond Orange Cookies, Hazelnut Cookies, Earl Grey Cookies, Arlette and the Cranberry Christmas Balls (I totally couldn’t resist these amazingly delicious little delights!) which contain preserved fruit, like orange peel and cranberries.
Christmas Macarons $12 (per box)
Christmas rainbow mini macarons comes in flavours like vanilla, rose, pandan, yoghurt, cassis, mango, strawberry and chocolate. In addition to the mini macarons, there will be a limited edition Gingerbread man Macaron Lolli (I can totally attest for its amazingness – just saying). The Gingerbread man shaped macaron is filled with decadent dark chocolate ganache and tastes as great as it looks.
12-day Advent Calendar Goodie Box $49.90
The Advent Calendar Goodie Box is a delicious way to celebrate the count down to Christmas, with a tasty treat everyday for 12 days. The Advent Calendar goodie box is filled with twelve types of Christmas goodies that are mini versions of traditional Christmas sweets. These range from cookies to candies to fruit cakes, nougat, pastilles and even pannetone.

All their recipes have been tailored for those with a more discerning palette by Ollyvia who honed her choux pastry skills while working in pastry kitchens in the USA (Sebastien Cannone, M.O.F., Jacquy Pfeiffer, En Ming Hsu, and World Pastry Champion Dimitri Fayard at the Peninsula Chicago Hotel) and France (Pierre Hermé Paris and Franck Kesterner).
