1. Churros by Chulop!
At Chulop! by The Syarifs, the churros are coated with just the right amount of sugar and spice (cinnamon) which makes everything nice! Though traditionally eaten at breakfast, you can definitely indulge in this sweet snack at any time of the day 😆

When choosing your dip, why go for the usual chocolates when you can have premium dips like Thai Milk Tea, Oreo Cheesecake or Kinder Bueno! And hey, if you’ve a dangerously sweet tooth, we definitely recommend getting Churros with Toppings 😋

You’ll be asking for more after having a taste of the S’mores Churros, which consists of the classic churros sitting on a bed of graham biscuit crumbs, crowned by ribbons of delicious chocolate drizzle, topped off with a row of marshmallows torched to toasty perfection! 😍

Another great thing about Chulop! is that they have 2 outlets – one in the east and another in the west! Talk about equality. Now, you don’t have to scramble to just one corner of the island for delicious churros 🤗
#HHWT Tip: Do make a trip down on weekends, as that’s when they usually serve up other yummy goodies like Nutella Cheese Tart, and Caramelised Banana Cake!

2. Cupcakes at Fluff Bakery
With a rotating menu of desserts weekly, you almost never know what to expect when you visit this bakery at Jalan Pisang. In early August, Fluff launched Mango, Sticky Rice and Coconut cupcake! This is one of the many Fluff cupcakes that will bring you straight to the Land of Smiles 😄

Another cool flavour they created was inspired by the traditional kuih putri salat. With pulut on top the pandan cake, and pandan custard & coconut inside, it truly resembles the taste of the kueh.
Feel like sticking to the familiar? Fluff’s best-selling Nutella Red Velvet and Salted Caramel cupcakes are always in store, waiting for you.
3. Egglet waffles by Lickety
Craving some Hong Kong egglet waffles? Well, the team at Fika Swedish Café has got you covered. Available in both Buttermilk and Red Velvet, the waffles are everything you dreamt of – soft on the inside, crisp and buttery on the outside. Fill those waffles right up with colourful scoops of icecream and toppings like marshmellows and Pocky sticks.

Or, you can opt for just ice-cream without waffles. There’s a whole spread of flavours to choose from, the notable ones being Mao Shan Wang, Lychee Rose Sorbet and Gula Melaka.

4. Galaxy donuts by Sinseh: The Grocery
For something out of this world, Sinseh: The Grocery has just the thing to offer you – galaxy donuts. These are comforting donuts which are simultaneously almost too pretty to eat as they come decorated with glitter and sprinkles. They’re not too sweet so you could grab the big one, or a couple of the mini ones.

Looking for more ethereal edibles? Unicorn cupcakes and galaxy mirror cakes are up for grabs here. Contrary to the name, Sinseh: The Grocery is not a shop selling TCM but freshly-baked pastries and treats. Last we heard, this Lab SG’s sister café is also offering baking classes. Wow, soon you can have your cake and eat it too, right at home!

5. Goreng pisang with cheese by Pisang Melokek
If you love adding cheese to just about anything you eat, you will enjoy Pisang Melokek’s rendition of goreng pisang, also known as banana fritters. Coupled with sweet toppings like ice cream, rainbow sprinkles and crushed oreo, this unique take on the traditional goreng pisang is soft on the inside, crispy on the outside.

Fret not if you are prefer the good ol’ goreng pisang as Pisang Melokek offers this option as well, along with chilli sauce on the side. Besides their outlet at Adam Road, they do sell at bazaars from time to time too, such as the Geylang Serai Bazaar Ramadhan in 2017. So look out for them the next time you see one!

6. Gloriously-decorated cakes by Butter Studio
Butter Studio is not one to shy away from being challenged in making customised cakes. Their cakes are so intricately designed, they seem too beautiful to be eaten. Take a look at the gorgeous creation- aptly named Orchid Blossom Cakelet- the talented bakers at Butter Studio baked in celebration of Singapore’s 52nd National Day! 😍

Another cake that is easy on the eyes and even more on the palate is the Salted Caramel Red Velvet cake – seems like a wonderful union of two crowd favourites. If you’re a fan of Nutella and cookie dough, Butter Studio has both under one roof too.

7. Matcha Azuki Mousse by FIX Grill & Cafe
At this poolside café, there are sundry dessert items to satisfy your sweet tooth. If you are a fan of matcha, you will make no mousse-take by coming to FIX to have a taste of the smooth Matcha Azuki Mousse.

Not feeling like having a Japanese dessert? FIX also serves a Mexican-inspired treat called Bunuelos, made of crispy tortillas drenched in gula melaka and a scoop of ice cream. Seems like Bunuelos is hardly served in makan places around Singapore so be sure to give a try at this café!

8. Traditional-inspired cupcakes by Julie Bakes
At Julie Bakes, you can look forward to kueh-inspired cupcakes every day, like badak berendam inventions. If you are a hardcore fan of traditional Malay bakes, look no further for the cupcakes here will not disappoint.

What’s even more impressive is that there are also cupcakes which are based on kuehs we might not have seen in local Muslim stalls nowadays. Perhaps, parents or grandparents might be able to identify this particular dessert (Talam Dang Anum) based on the taste. For the uninitiated (i.e. myself), it is a jackfruit-based kueh, and the folks at Julie Bakes have succeeded in adapting it into a sumptuous creation.
9. The Halia desserts
Up for some exquisite dessert in the midst of the Botanic Gardens? Have a go at The Halia’s quaint creations which will leave you spellbound by the presentation of the food itself. One of the signature favourites on the Brunch menu, Pain Perdu is not to be missed. It is a hazelnut brioche with caramelised banana and hazelnut, fresh berries, ice cream and praline sauce.

Another popular choice at The Halia is the Fig Tart, made of yogurt mousseline, speculoos, caramelised fig, turmeric foam. How classy and unique can a dessert get?

It’s always a good time for softserve ice-cream right? Here at Overrun, you’ll be overwhelmed with the flavours they have to offer. One of the most popular flavours is of course the Chendol which comes with coconut shavings, gula Melaka and green jelly.
