Olivia | 34 Arab Street | Singapore
Like many hidden gems, Oliva is
tucked away in the Kampong Glam district. As you step in, the setting really
transports you to a whole new world, truly Italian, a stark contrast to the
outlook from the rest of the shops along Arab Street. With black high back chairs, the ambience
exudes a contemporary casual grandeur feel, everything spick and span and
neatly in place, from wall displays, curtains, flooring to the whole interior
This romantic café cum restaurant
serves excellent food and is a nice dinner haunt for couples and office
workers. Looking further on the menu,
one might overlook the modest selection of cakes, but to my surprise, they were
as great and inspirational.
I tried the homemade flourless
chocolate cake. It came with a single scoop of ice-cream with some cut
strawberries and strawberry sauce over the vanilla ice-cream. Though the
serving is small, it’s just right for a hearty dessert.
Tiramisu is a highly recommended
cake at Oliva as it’s flavour is rice yet the texture is light and fluffy. The
amount of alcohol is also of a good amount to give the right punch in the
My total bill for the desserts was
$17.40 which I find is a reasonable price to enjoy my cakes with my partner in
a romantic setting.
