The Ultimate Guide To 30 Awesome Desserts Under S$8 In Singapore

Dessert Collage

Desserts. We eat them whenever we are angry, bored, happy or sad.

It is true that they make us feel better, even if it is just a temporary relief. But living in the world’s most expensive city means we often have to fork out ridiculous amounts just for a pretty dessert. Well, the good news is – that’s not always the case, as long as you look hard enough. Or know where to look.

Our team has expanded our waistlines just to curate this guide of affordable and delicious sweet treats in Singapore that everyone can seek comfort from without breaking the bank. You are welcome.

We present to you The Ultimate Guide To 30 Awesome Desserts Under S$8 In Singapore.

All The Batter Avocado Rhapsody

ALL THE BATTER – THE AVOCADO RHAPSODY SLICE

The Avocado Rhapsody Slice (S$6.50) is made with fresh avocados, cocoa and slathered with rich cream cheese. We could taste all the distinct flavours without the cream cheese overpowering everything else.

Chocolate Cupcake


AWFULLY CHOCOLATE – CHOCOLATE GANACHE CUPCAKE


Chocolate cupcakes are a classic but Awfully Chocolate takes it up a notch by producing one of the densest and decadent ganache cupcakes (S$6.90) ever. The cake itself is soft and moist and it has dark chocolate fudge at the bottom and gorgeous dollops of chocolate ganache at the top to send you straight to chocolate heaven.

BOULANGERIE ASANOYAB – MATCHA SALTED EGG YOLK CROISSANT


Asanoya Bakery’s Matcha Salted Egg Yolk Croissant (S$4.90) has successfully combined the best of Japanese, French and Chinese cuisine into an invincible treat. The flaky lukewarm croissant is crisp on the outside, delightfully soft inside and oozes out generous amounts of green tea liu sha.

Located in Pasarbella, Bonheur Patisserie is an expert in dishing out some of the best Macarons you can find in Singapore. A piece here retails for S$3 for it is worth every penny. Flavours include – Thai iced tea, Bailey’s, Rose, Salted Caramel and a lot more.

Butter Studio Nutella Tart


BUTTER STUDIO – SEA SALT NUTELLA TART


As much as we love Butter Studio’s amazing cupcakes, the Sea Salt Nutella Tart (S$6.90) was too divine to pass up. Baked fresh daily, the centre had the ideal balance of both sea salt and hazelnut chocolate flavours with a nice crust base.

Cake Spade Strawberry Cheesecake


CAKE SPADE – STRAWBERRY TOFU CHEESECAKE


For just S$5.90, you get a beautifully made Strawberry Tofu Cheesecake. The texture of the cheesecake itself is so bouncy yet smooth, and the strawberry flavours were strong enough, without overpowering the taste of the cheese. This provides a lighter option to the traditional dense cheesecakes.

Ciel Patisserie

CIEL PATISSERIE – LEMON MERINGUE TART

A heartland patisserie that boasts a menu of French desserts, Ciel Patisserie is a hidden gem. Unassuming but very surprising, this small patisserie has a wholesome range of cakes and tarts that are mostly priced under S$6.

We have said this before and we will say this again—Ciel Patisserie’s Lemon Meringue Tart (S$4.50) stands out for its perfect balance of sweet and tart. Definitely one of the best lemon tarts you can find in Singapore.

Churro 101


CHURRO101 – DARK CHOCOLATE-DIPPED CHURROS


The reason why Churro101′s churros are so incredibly tasty is that each churro is pressed and fried a la minute per order. We love the Dark Chocolate-Dipped Churro (S$5.90) rolled in a strawberry crunch. The chocolate was amazing as it was served to us dripping warm, but the strawberry crunch did not make a huge impact on the overall taste in each bite.

creamier peanut butter jelly ice-cream


CREAMIER – PEANUT BUTTER JELLY ICE-CREAM


Peanut butter jelly sandwiches were a nostalgic childhood staple for many children and we were thrilled that Creamier’s Peanut Butter Jelly Ice-Cream (S$4.20) tasted exactly the same – except that it is in an ice-cold dessert form. Peanut butter fans must give this a go! Eating the ice-cream was akin to eating the thick PBJ jam right from the old-school Skippy container.

Double Scoops Gelato


DOUBLE SCOOPS – THAI MILK TEA & SEA SALT GULA MELAKA ICE CREAM


Double Scoops’ gelato offerings are all made fresh in-store and they have a huge range of flavours. Our two personal favourite ones are Thai Milk Tea and Sea Salt Gula Melaka (S$6 for two scoops). The former tastes exactly just sipping an authentic Thai Iced Milk Tea on a warm day in Bangkok.

five by five waffles


NOOK & CRANNY – COCONUT TARO ICE-CREAM


Nook & Cranny’s (previously known as Five by Five) Coconut Ice-Cream (S$4.80 per scoop) is wonderfully infused with taro and packs a puch with every mouthful. Rich, creamy and containing bits of coconut flesh, we are guilty of returning endlessly for it.

Hvala Waffle Bar is a small kiosk in the basement of [email protected] offering delicious bite-sized treats. Our personal Waffle Stick of choice is the Cinnamon Apple (S$3.80) and the apples offered a nice crunch to every bite. The waffles can also be sliced up for you for easier consumption.

ji xiang


JI XIANG CONFECTIONERY – ANG KU KUEH


Ji Xiang Confectionary has been handcrafting traditional delicacy Ang Ku Kueh since 1988 and the family-run business is fortunately unthreatened by the rising number of cafes in its vicinity. These handmade Chinese pastries are usually filled with sweet mung bean or peanut but you can find other flavours such as Coconut, Corn, Salted Bean and Yam (from S$0.70 each) over at Ji Xiang.

kanemochi


KANE MOCHI – MOCHI ICE CREAM


Mochi and ice cream is a combination we never want to stop enjoying. Choose three different mochi flavours and they will slice them up for you in a cup to enjoy for just S$5. Our favourites are Cookies & Cream and Taro. The former is filled with cookie bits and they are all not overly sweet, something we can appreciate.

Llaollao Singapore


LLAOLLAO – SANUM


LlaoLlao’s Sanum (S$6.95) is their star product, and with so many outlets island wide, LlaoLlao shows no signs of slowing down. This Fro-yo treat is filled with crunchy bits, fresh fruits, sauce and more. They all come in a convenient to-go cup as well.

Eclairs


MAISON KAYSER – ECLAIR


This bakery has long been known for offering fluffy and delicious bread. But their selection of eclairs (S$3.70) blew us away. They include flavours such as lychee, original, coffee and more. The choux pastry itself was tasty and the added flavoured creams and toppings only made it better.

Mr Churro Churros


MR. CHURRO – CHURROS WITH CHOCOLATE


With a slightly different way of serving as compared to Churro101, Mr.Churro’s churros are sliced up in a cone-shaped holder and drizzled on top generously with chocolate. The Nutty Churro (S$5.90) is our favourite as it is sprinkled generously with nuts on top for a good crunch with every bite.

old school icecream


OLD-SCHOOL ICE-CREAM


Walk down Orchard Road and you will spot a few ice-cream vendors from far by their striking umbrellas. Typically run by the older Singapore generation, this ice-cream business is a dying trade that might cease to exist in a few decades. Choose from a wide variety of flavours (S$1.20 each) such as chocolate chip, raspberry ripple and durian etc—where you can have it in a bread, cone or cup.

Oyoge Taiyaki


OYOGE TAIYAKAI – MOCHI TAIYAKI WITH DARK CHOCOLATE


While we love Oyoge Taiyaki’s Grape Soft Serve with tastes pleasantly of Kyoho grapes, it is not always in stock as they regularly rotate their flavours. However, the Mochi Taiyaki is always in stock. We especially love the one stuffed with heaps of dark chocolate (S$3) for a very sinful treat.

Royal Pudding


PARIS BAGUETTE – ROYAL PUDDING


As a cult-favourite pudding, we have yet to have a pudding similar to this in terms of flavour and consistency. The original Royal Pudding (S$4) is also available in other flavours such as chocolate and strawberry. It is light and not overly rich or sweet to create a very palatable overall taste.

Sinpopo Marshmallow Cheesecake


SINPOPO BRAND – MARSHMALLOW CHEESECAKE


The Marshmallow Cheesecake (S$7++) is a new dessert addition that deserves to be raved about. The sweet treat has successfully combined the contrasting textures of stickiness, softness and crumbliness into a divine creation. You can expect a dense New York-style Cheesecake – with a crumbly base – covered with torched marshmallow fluff. Sinful yet delicious.

Shaved Ice Singapore


SMOOTHIE HOUSE – SNOWFLAKE ICE INTO-GO CUPS


The Snowflake Ice at Smoothie House are probably one of the best we have ever tried as they use actual flavoured ice with fresh fruit. Their affordable to-go cups are priced only at S$6.90 so it is extremely value-for-money. We suggest going right for the mango flavour to experience thick and sweet chunks of freshly-cut mangoes.

The Matcha Project Soft Serve

THE MATCHA PROJECT – MATCHA SOFTSERVE

Served in two different sizes, the Matcha Softserve goes for S$5 and you can get the large one for S$6.50. We honestly could not find a reason to dislike this sweet treat; it came with an intense matcha flavour and is really refreshing!

traditional haig putu piring


TRADITIONAL HAIG ROAD PUTU PIRING – PUTU PIRINGS


Award-winning Traditional Haig Road Putu Piring is renowned for their putu pirings (S$2) and has been unanimously coined by foodies as Singapore’s best. The queue is notoriously long, but endure the wait and you are in a treat for piping hot Malay rice cakes stuffed with palm sugar. These sweet delights are steamed fresh upon order and topped off with salted grated coconut.

To-gather Cafe Hojicha Swiss Roll


TO-GATHER CAFE – HOMEMADE HOJICHA SWISS ROLL


To-gather Cafe’s Homemade Hojicha Swiss Roll with Thick Hojicha Shot (S$5.90) uses premium Hojicha powder imported directly from Japan! The idea of serving the dessert with a shot of Hojicha Latte is so that you can take sips in between bites because most Swiss rolls tend to be dry; yes, we were so incredibly impressed by this “little touch”.

Twenty Grammes Cotton Candy Affogato


TWENTY GRAMMES – WHITE CHOCOLATE COTTON CANDY AFFOGATO


The White Chocolate Cotton Candy Affogato (S$7.90) is such a beauty. Fluffy pink cotton candy cloud sits atop white chocolate ice cream and warm espresso, and when you pour the chocolate over, the cotton candy crumbles and melts into the coffee. Sugar rush, anybody?

Windowsill Pie


WINDOWSILL PIES – STRAWBERRY LEMON TART


Windowsill Pies’ Strawberry Lemon Tart (S$7.50) is unlike any other lemon tarts. The wedge of super thick bright yellow zesty curd is filled with traces of strawberry jam filling towards the pâte sucrée crust. Topped with whipped meringue, the refreshing slice has struck a great balance between sweet and tartness.
