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!
Cake lovers, rejoice! A new parlour has opened. Located in the heart of Toa Payoh, The Twisted Trio is currently in its soft launch stage, but it is set for a grand opening this Sunday. It is a 5 to 10-minute walk from the MRT.
This new, modern cafe is founded by 3 pastry chefs (with 3 different personalities, thus the name!) who initially worked together before deciding to open their own dessert shop with cakes that cater to all tastebuds.
Conveniently located right opposite Pasir Panjang MRT at the Bijou is another new cafe, The Kins’ Specialty Coffee. Serving up an array of coffee, all-day brunch and other mains, they could be your new spot for a mid-day cuppa during lunch. They are currently in their soft launch phase, so all their food items are 20% off until mid-June!
In addition to their menu of hot food, they serve up a unique treat that isn’t normally found in dessert menus around Singapore: Burnt Cheesecake. Trust us when we say it’s worth the trip down for that alone.
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.

Whatever reason you are thinking of, one thing is for sure—a good tiramisu can do wonders for your mind, soul and appetite.

Situated just a stone’s throw away from the ever-so-popular Blk 85 Fengshan Food Centre at Bedok North is a newly-opened carnival-themed café, Sir Stamford Waffles, which serves waffles, ice cream, coffee and more.
Do not be confused by the name of this café—Sir Stamford Raffles did not open this café—but rather, the people behind Hatter Street Bakehouse and Café did.
