Whether you have it as a sweet treat or a savoury snack, there’s no denying the sinful indulgence that is – say it with us – peanut butter.

Have a good reason for loving peanut butter? We’re giving you 12 more.
Burgers, Wing, Bar: For peanut butter burgers
Why have a peanut butter sandwich when you can slather it on a burger? This boxing ring-themed restaurant at Orchard features a palate-pounding crowd favourite on its menu, the Tyson Peanut Butter Burger, with peanut butter spread atop a juicy Angus beef patty. Be warned: this one’s a real savoury knockout!

Artistry: For peanut butter French toast
Two things that always speak out to us at Artistry: its minimalist, monochrome decor, and their sinfully delish peanut butter and jelly French toast. Unlike standard French toast, this dish prefers using peanut butter, fruit jelly, and mixed berry caulis for a saccharine finish. If you have a serious sweet tooth, this one’s for you!

Once Upon A Milkshake: For peanut butter milkshakes
Scooping up peanut butter is so dull; we say slurping it is the way to go! These milkshake mavericks at Capitol Piazza truly mix it up, serving more than just your average, American Diner malt shake. Favours here range from red velvet and bubblegum, to green tea and coconut, and of course, good ol’ peanut butter.

Afterwit Mexican Taqueria: For peanut butter tacos
Loco, or a stroke of genius? We’ll let you decide!

Us gusta!

Chef Icon Nature Bakery: For peanut butter cheesecakes
A soft, creamy cheesecake is a treat by itself, but we won’t say no to a salted peanut butter version! This cosy bakery takes the standard Boston cheesecake and adds a layer of salted peanut butter glaze on top, giving it a gooey texture that has us scrambling for another slice. Weight watchers, you’ll be relieve to hear that Chef Icon’s cakes do not include preservatives or artificial ingredients, so go ahead and pig out without worrying about your waistline.

The Ice Cream Man: For peanut butter cocktails
If you’re addicted to both alcohol and peanut butter, you won’t be able to resist this double delight. Known for mixing cocktails with gelato (can you say the best of both worlds?), the mixologists at The Ice Cream Man whip up a concoction called Nuts About You – a brew of vodka, banana liqueur, Frangelico, and peanut butter gelato with a scoop of peanut butter (overkill!) on top.

Taking a page outta Willy Wonka’s playbook, the wacky chocolatiers at Max Brenner are known for transforming the Italian staple into a cocoa-covered dessert. And you probably already know what goes well with chocolate, don’t you? You guessed it; peanut butter is glazed generously over this delicacy, with roasted marshmallows sprinkled on top. Heaven!

Tino’s Pizza Cafe: For peanut butter fries
Ketchup or mayo? Please. Served toasty in a basket, these fries are served with a drizzle of hot peanut butter sauce for that extra, nutty oomph. It’s a diet-ruiner for sure, but we just can’t resist!
