If going through WWII means we get to live on sweet potatoes every day, so be it. Okay, not really. But, you get our point- we can’t get enough of this delicious root vegetable, which comes in all kinds of shapes and colours.
Not to mention, they’re actually really healthy as well. Brimming with fibre, antioxidants and Vitamin A, these superfoods are great for your body. But, we’re going to ditch the health talk for now because that’s not what we’re about today.
As their name suggests, sweet potatoes are basically a godsent vegetable for the sweet-toothed. They absolutely thrive in the realm of desserts. So, for all the ‘han tze’ lovers, we’ve rounded up 10 spots in Singapore that turn sweet potatoes into wondrous mouthwatering treats!

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.
So, when we heard about a new gelato joint that specialises in botanical flavours, we were down for a visit. Named after the gorgeous butterfly, Monarchs & Milkweed Gelato is a new gelato boutique that specialises in botanical flavours. The concept reminds us of Birds of Paradise.
They churn out fresh gelato daily, every concoction promising utmost creaminess and unthinkable richness.
Ever felt left out when your group of friends decide to pick the latest and hippest ice-cream café as their new favourite hangout spot? Whether you are watching your diet, or are lactose-intolerant, the temptation can be unbearable when you see your friends happily savouring their mounds of colourful ice-creams.
With many Singaporeans actively swapping their diets and lifestyles to a healthier one, it can be difficult to justify pampering yourself with a scoop. Thankfully, not all ice-creams are made equal: whether you are looking for a lower calorie option, or need to adhere to dietary restrictions, there is no longer a need to abstain from ice-creams this festive season.
To all my fellow sufferers out there, here are 8 cafés where you too can spoil yourself with healthier vegan ice-cream options this festive season!
Stepping in to Sueno—a new ice cream café at 888 Plaza in Admiralty—we were greeted by the aroma of baking waffles and desserts.
If you are looking for a café in the North of Singapore to chill out at with friends to enjoy waffles and ice cream, Sueno is the next place you can go to.
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.
Depending on the quality of the palm, and how it is pressed, different varieties of gula Melaka may exude different flavour profiles. Sourness, smoke, caramel, butterscotch, coffee, or even a combination of those flavours. A complex sweetener with a myriad of nuanced flavours, we just love it in everything.
Here are 15 places in Singapore where you can find gula Melaka desserts worthy enough to make you want to skip gym day.
In 2018 alone, there have been multiple instances where we have witnessed Singaporeans’ relentless patience to queue for overseas brands who have made their debuts in Singapore, including famous Korean toast chain Isaac Toast, original cheese tea inventor HEYTEA, and Austrian bakery specialising in devil cheese buns, Guschlbauer.
Keep your eyes peeled and your calendars marked because come late November, famous Hokkaido soft serve shop Naganuma Ice is slated to open in Singapore’s Carlton City Hotel.
Known to be Hokkaido’s most sought-after soft serve brand, the brand specialises in soft serves and gelato and always sees queues of almost an hour long. Distinctively the sole Hokkaido firm certified by the prefecture’s authorities for using raw Hokkaido milk in their ice cream products, their milky goodnesses is quite possibly the best in Naganuma itself.
