Got a sweet tooth you can't control? Good news; five new dessert hangouts have just opened in the city
Can’t say no to
sinful good stuff like ice cream and hot chocolate? We hear you. Who cares about the calories when they make you happy? Go on and treat yourself at these five new spots for great dessert in Singapore.
Hailing from Paris, Angelina certainly is legendary. The tearoom and patisserie in Singapore offers two of its most iconic items: the Le Mont-Blanc pastry, and the Old-Fashioned Hot Chocolate “L’Africain”. Apart from these main stars, there’s also chocolate ganache (pralines, too), macaroons, and even savoury stuff like truffle ravioli and onion soup.
Angelina, #01-82 Capitol Piazza, 15 Stamford Road, Singapore 178906, p. 6384 0481.
Dazzling Cafe has already taken Taiwan by storm, and it looks like Singapore is next. Awashed with baby blue hues, the cosy yet whimsical dessert cafe serves up sugary, Instagram-worthy treats such as its signature Shibuya-style honey toast and mochi “QQ” Waffle – complete with scoops of Haagen Dazs ice cream. Take note: the spot draws crowds on the weekends, so be prepared to wait.
Dazzling Cafe, #01-85 Capitol Piazza, 15 Stamford Road, Singapore 178906, p. 6384 3310.
Neh Neh Pop
Bjorn Shen of Artichoke gets all wacky with his new venture, Neh Neh Pop (we’re totally digging the super cheeky name). An extension of his Middle Eastern restaurant, this ice cream shop offers popsicles in flavours like mango sticky rice and strawberry Pocky.
Neh Neh Pop, 161 Middle Road, Singapore 188978, p. 6336 6949.
Helming the kitchen of this takeaway outlet is Cheryl Koh, Les Amis’ very own pastry chef. The sweets on offer change regularly according to the ingredients available for the season, but here’s an idea of what you can expect: tarts in flavours like pistachio, strawberry, chocolate, and passionfruit.
Tarte, #01-12 Shaw Centre, 1 Scotts Road, Singapore 228208, p. 6235 3225.
Frozen custard, anyone? Density puts out freshly made signature options like buttered popcorn, black forest, red velvet, and quadruple chocolate. Top it with whatever you like, whether it’s berries, cookie crumbs, or nuts. The best bit: frozen custard generally contains less sugar compared to desserts like frozen yogurt. Cheers to a guilt-free indulgence!
Density, 4 Short Street, Singapore 188212, p. 6268 7918.
