Handcrafted in Mandai, Singapore, Fossa Chocolate blends the traditional processes of chocolate-making with inventive culinary insight to make bars unlike others—both in appearance and on the palate. Whether it’s a collection of excellent dark options or bars inspired by the sea, they balance the richness and nuances of the cacao with flavors they feel are complementary.
With the cacao they source—they sort, roast, crack, winnow, grind, conch, and temper it, too—Fossa creates concoctions like the shrimp and bonito bar ($10), which they say was inspired by their recent trip to Tokyo‘s Tsukiji Market. It’s fishy and salty and crunchy and pairs well with the subtleness of the dark chocolate. Other standouts from our recent encounter were the white sesame and seaweed ($10) and chili peanut praliné ($10) bars, which were creamy and salty and enveloping and spicy respectively.
Fossa Chocolate’s full collection can be accessed online, but they have quite a few stockists around the world, too. The list can be perused on their website.
