A round-up of delectable treats from the very best patisseries in Singapore.
01: Ondeh Ondeh cheesecake from Conrad Centennial Singapore
With a launch of 9 new cakes, available at the
The Terrace and online, you'll be spoilt for choice.
We pick the Ondeh Ondeh cheesecake: the classic cheesecake is given a Singaporean twist with a centre swirl of gula melaka, set atop a coconut and palm sugar base. If you love the traditional Southeast Asian sweet treat, then you'll definitely be polishing up a few slices of this familiar yet refreshingly novel cake.
A cake created with mom in mind: Asian flavours come together in this delicate and light dessert, perfect to finish off a hearty meal. A spongey coconut fingers base is topped with layers of crunchy salted peanut and sesame feuilletine, then covered with a creamy white lotus seed mousse. Craters of rich salted egg lava catapults the cake from "yum" to "oh my!" and will have both you and your mom sighing in delight.
LeTao is welcoming spring with a launch of their famed fromage cheesecake in a crowd-pleasing matcha flavour. The double-layered cake is a fluffy combination of Hokkaido cream cheese, Italian mascarpone, and Kyoto matcha. Only 30 cakes are available daily, so pop by early to avoid disappointment. Not a fan of matcha? The original, best-selling Double Fromage and Chocolat Double are staples that can't go wrong.
