Best Chocolate Lava Cakes in Singapore

Warm Chocolate Lava Cake

This guide to the best chocolate lava cakes in Singapore was last updated on 1 July 2014.

Molten chocolate cake, warm chocolate cake, hot chocolate fondant, chocolate lava cake – call it whatever you want, a warm molten chocolate lava cake with a scoop of ice cream is immensely satisfying, and a must-order whenever we see it on the menu.

Here is a guide to the best chocolate lava cakes in Singapore.


Bakerzin’s signature Warm Chocolate Cake ($11.50), served with homemade vanilla ice cream and fresh berries, definitely deserves a mention. It is one of my favourites because it is consistently good and has never let me down.

Chocolate Origin

The chocolate lava cake from Chocolate Origin is decent, but not extraordinary. However, there’s really nothing to complain about when it is only $5. It is worth a try if you want a quick fix in town.

Chili Chocolate Lava Cake


Only two words to describe Chili’s Molten Chocolate Cake ($15) – gigantic and satisfying. If you love chocolate lava cake, you must try the one from Chili’s.

Ember Restaurant

It is not a secret that Ember at boutique hotel 1929 has one of the best set lunches in Singapore. But what many do not know is the restaurant also does a very good Chocolate Molten Cake ($14).

La Cantina Chocolate Lava Cake

La Cantina

The only reason why I will travel across Singapore and go all the way to Changi for a meal is La Cantina’s Chocolate Lava Cake ($9.50) — after my must-have linguine al granchio, of course. This should speak volume of its place in my heart.

Max Brenner Souffle

Max Brenner

What else do we need to say? The picture above tells it all. Max Brenner’s Chocolate Souffle ($16) is sinful, and so damn good. Definitely one of the best in town.

Chocolate & Praline fondant


mezza9 has a slew of delicious desserts – such as banana & nutella crepe (S$15), stone fruit tart (S$17), and pink lady apple tart (S$17) – but our favourite is definitely the Chocolate & Praline Fondant, which comes with a scoop of caramel ice cream.

Morton's Hot Chocolate Cake

Morton’s Steakhouse

At $30, Morton’s legendary Hot Chocolate Cake is not cheap. And of course, many people will be put off by the price. Is it really worth paying $30++ for a chocolate lava cake? As compared to most places that only charge $15 tops, it sets all wondering if in direct proportion, is Morton’s rendition truly twice as good?

I wonder too, and while there may be many that I have tried to date, Morton’s version is, hands up (pun intended), one of the best, if not the best chocolate lava cake you can get in Singapore.

Yes, you heard me right. Hall of fame standards. It is that good.

Chocolate Soup


Over at Osia Resorts World Sentosa, they serve a slightly different rendition in the form of a soup. Yes, that’s right, a chocolate soup.

Osia’s Hot Chocolate Soup ($22) is one of the signature items on the menu. For regulars, it is a must-order dessert to end the meal, while I know of many new customers come to Osia just to try this.

White truffle chocolate lava cake

Quayside Fish Bar

Quayside Fish Bar is one of our to-go places for good quality seafood in Singapore. Besides daily fresh imports of wild-caught seafood and fish from different parts of the world, Quayside Fish bar also serves excellent desserts.

In particular, we love their White Truffle flavoured Chocolate Lava Cake (S$12). What makes the chocolate lava cake here different from the rest is that it is lightly drizzled with truffle oil, giving it a distinctive and pleasing scent.

Dark Chocolate Lava

Relish by Wild Rocket

Relish’s Dark Lava Chocolate Gateau ($12.80) – which comes with flambe banana and vanilla ice cream – always hits the spot.

TCC Chocolate Cake

The Connoisseur Concerto

This may come as a surprise to some, but The Connoisseur Concerto does a very good Dark Chocolate Cake ($11). In fact, I’d go so far as to say that it is among my top 5 chocolate lava cake in Singapore. If you are a regular, be sure to try it next time.

Wimbly Lu

Wimbly Lu is one of my new favourite places for desserts. They have an impressive selection – such as the popular waffles and root beer float cake – but what I will go back for again and again is their Molten Lava Cake ($6).

Chocolate Lava Cake

Wooloomooloo Steakhouse

To me, Wooloomooloo Steakhouse’s Hot Chocolate Cake ($25), also known as the sore-throat inducing dessert, is one of the top 5 chocolate lava cake in Singapore. It is pricey for a dessert, but trust me, it’s worth every cent.

3 inch sin lava cake

3 Inch Sin

The chocolate lava cake specialist, 3 Inch Sin started with a small shop at Cluny Court and they have since shifted to a more convenient location at Millenia Walk. With many different flavours – orange, coffee and mint – to choose from, there’s something for everyone. Add a scoop of cold French vanilla bean ice cream ($3.50) to 3 Inch Sin’s freshly-baked Warm Chocolate Cake ($6.50). The result? A taste of heaven.

What about smoulder? Its a new place that has lava cakes in every flavor from white chocolate raspberry to lemon. You can take them home and heat them up in your own microwave to get them good and gooey. I’ve not tried it yet but its on my food agenda!

Also, my favorites from this list are Max Brenner (of course) and 3 inch sin. I could live on 3 inch sin lava cakes, especially the white chocolate and hazelnut ones. However, I find the Chillis lava cake a little too cloying. I felt sick after eating it because it was too sweet. And for me, that’s saying a lot because I can live on sweet things alone! :p

Wow that’s some list to check out thanks a mil! :) I can’t boast to have even tried half from the list, but out of those that I did try I like Jewel’s the best! Max’s is pretty good but I like how Jewel’s was definitely more dark chocolate-y. Bakerzin’s and Laurent’s both failed me because they weren’t hot

La Maison Fatien one is pretty good too! ANd the best I think is made by myself…tsk tsk tsk…’cause way cheaper for using higher chocolate percentage…Bakerzin is really good for their souffle :)

@ Lavacakelover: Yes, Smoulder has pretty good lava cake too. I’ve tried it a few times, and it’s of course best when fresh. Pretty good value for money, for peeps who’re on a budget, but looking for good lava cake.

Just tried the Lava Cakes from Smoulders at Raffles City, lots of flavours to choose from, definitely a thumbs-up for lava cakes!!

Dan Ryan’s Chicago Grill have the best lava cake. They are located at 91 Tanglin Road, #B1-01 which is the best lava cake in town. Runny and ozzing chocolate yummy.

One good “budget” alternative is the Chocolate Lava Cake ($6.80 on its own, $4.80 when ordered as a dessert with any main meal purchase) from Domino’s Pizza. For a fast food restaurant, the chocolate lava cake is comparable to those found at TCC and Max Brenner’s. Top it up with your own ice-cream, and you’ve got a dessert you’d smile about afterwards.

chocolate lava cake from wine connection at robertson quay is also really good! Only at $6, that quality of lava cake is totally worth it! Much better than the Chocolate origin and the one from NYDC that costs ard $10.50 if I remember correctly.

You MUST try the chocolate lava at North Border Bar & Grill, at 2, Rochester Park. It comes with vanilla ice cream, which you could add their very delicious chilli, and or, their Bailey’s ice cream. Excellent dessert!

Poppies at East Coast has the best imho. My son who’s really picky about his food, let alone desserts, loves it. If it can pass my son’s taste buds, it is definitely good.
