With numerous gelato joints opening up in Singapore in recent years, it’s safe to say that our country is going through a serious gelato fad. But, nobody’s complaining. In this hot and humid climate, we need a lot more than just chendol and teh bing to deal with the heat.

For the love of all things sticky, sweet and sinfully irresistible, Malaysia’s smoky, caramel-edged gula Melaka ranks high on our list of desserts worth skipping gym time for. Before the Europeans introduced cane sugar to our part of the world, we relied heavily on palm sugar.

Here are 15 places in Singapore where you can find gula Melaka desserts worthy enough to make you want to skip gym day.
