It’s always a good idea to pamper yourself with desserts. Our little island possesses a mind-boggling variety of cuisines, and we are spoiled with choices. In Singapore, the tiramisu cake is surely a crowd-pleaser, even for those averse to caffeinated beverages. With their velvety consistency and addictive bittersweet taste, the non-baked confectionary is impossible to resist.

In this article, we’ll be naming the top ten contenders for best tiramisu in town. From the respectfully conservative to the wildly experimental, join us on a hunt for the ultimate pick-me-up!

1. Cat & the Fiddle

Cat & the Fiddle specializes in gourmet cheesecakes, made to perfection by Celebrity Pastry Chef Daniel Tay. In fact, he is a former pastry chef at Michelin three-starred French fine-dine restaurant Les Amis.

Tiramisu at Cat & the Fiddle goes by the name “Sicilian Wild Cats”, alluding to the fluffiness of cocoa powder and the fieriness of espresso. As a halal-certified bakery, Sicilian Wild Cats is free of alcohol. However, they do not compromise on spunk: a generous dash of caffeine makes for a heady, punchy treat.

The folks behind L’Atelier TiramiSu are truly devoted to tiramisu, seeing as they dedicated the entire business to it. The unique capitalization in the second half of their name is a tribute to the Italian phrase that coined the term, which translates to ‘pick me up’.

Besides classic tiramisu, the patisserie has six other flavours available: Lychee, Matcha, Dark Cherry, Brulee, Pistachio and Lavender Earl Grey. Every bite suffuses your senses with the exquisite fragrance of tropical fruits and teas without eclipsing the cake’s original flair.

If you’re looking to spice up your tiramisu hunt, try Lychee. It comes with a sprinkling of cinnamon dust, adding an unconventional warm note to the cold and mushy dessert.

The Tiramisu Hero is founded by two tiramisu enthusiasts, Aileen and Peggy. The pair are no snobs when it comes to tinkling with recipes: feel free to customize your desired level of moisture, sweetness and alcohol.

They also enjoy discovering new flavours, which culminated in a whopping 20 renditions at the cosy café (for now). There are plenty of boozy selections, most notably the Honey Soju, which swapped the traditionally-Western liquor for Korean Soju.

Feeling adventurous? Sample those with a local spin, such as kaya, milo and durian.

Known foremost for fermenting their own beer, The 1925 Brewing Co. Restaurant turns out to be quite the master of desserts as well.

Consistent with the pared-down yet earnest nature of the microbrewery, the tiramisu here is uncomplicated. A thick layer of mascarpone cheese, a coffee liqueur infusion, and homemade sea salt chocolate to top it all off – take one look at the ingredient list and you know something heavenly is brewing.

5. Maccha House

At the peak of its pre-pandemic glory, a slice of Maccha House’s famed Uji Maccha Tiramisu required a 4-hour queue in Kyoto. Since then, they have expanded their global reach with franchises overseas, selling 10,000 servings daily. Fortunately, we get to skip the long wait and flight with its three outlets in Singapore.

Sourcing ingredients from acclaimed Kyoto tea company Morihan, the chain’s golden goose is delightful both on the eyes and the tastebuds. It has a coating of matcha powder that breaks up into little continents when you dig in; the bitterness of which is downplayed by the sweetness of the vanilla chiffon.

Primarily sought after for its Signature Chocolate Etoile Cake, the tiramisu at Temptations Cakes Shop qualifies as a hidden gem. Backed by 35 years of expertise in dessert-making, the tiramisu is mouthwatering and alcohol-free. It consists of mascarpone, chocolate sponge, coffee-soaked ladyfingers and a layer of chocolate ganache topped with cocoa powder.

The creamy mousse presents no resistance to the sinking forks of devouring gourmets; the clinging cocoa powder a satisfying reminder of the enjoyment you just had. Order a delectable cake (or more) for your special occasions on their website, and have it delivered to your doorstep.

Pastry chef Janice Wong isn’t one to play by the book. Like a curious scientist, she dissects the subject and reassembles it into a refreshing experience.

As do most items on the menu, Chef Wong’s tiramisu aims to surprise. The usually invisible Kahlua is made into a tangible jelly. The dominance of coffee further enhanced by an espresso ice cream topping. There are mysterious dark pearls with a crunch. Gone is the usually incorporated mixture; instead, you’ll find yourself sinking into a bowl of deconstructed tiramisu.

8. PocoLoco

PocoLoco is on the more affordable end of the dessert price range. Nonetheless, they do not skim on quality. As a matter of fact, its tiramisu is reputed to be on a calibre that rivals – or even outshines – those of its pricier contemporaries.

The holy trinity of cream cheese, cocoa powder and ladyfingers comes with a pleasant twist. PocoLoco introduced a crisp to the otherwise sloppy dessert with a crumbly biscuit. While tiramisu purists may cry blasphemy to this change, many find the unique texture gratifying.

If you’re feeling extra indulgent, they also have a handful of gelatos that won’t burn a hole in your wallet.

  • Affordable tiramisu
  • Crunchy sponge biscuits

9. Da Paolo Gastronomia

Da Paolo Gastronomia is a family-ran Italian food group that focuses on authentic Italian fares. It beckons to foodies with a tiramisu of premium components. The trattoria lines its luscious mascarpone batter with coffee- and Marsala-soaked savoiardi and blankets it with luxurious Valrhona chocolate.

In my mind, I can’t help reading the restaurant’s name as ‘tapau lo‘, which isn’t that unfitting in the context. Those who can’t get enough can take away a Tiramisù Tub. At just S$15.90, induce yourself into the most divine food coma in the comfort of your own home.

Highlight

  • Tiramisù Tub at S$15.90
  • Valrhona chocolate topping
  • Authentic Italian recipe

10. iO Italian Osteria

iO Italian Osteria is a true-blue Italian establishment with various outposts in Singapore, Thailand and Pattaya. It takes great care in replicating the dining experience of a traditional Italian tavern, with fine antique pieces, beautiful copper and real wood furniture. The friendly, rustic ambience certainly adds a magical aura to the tiramisu.

The restaurant exercises excellent restraint over the liqueur portion to avoid overpowering the star of the show – pistachio. Crushed pistachio stands in for the familiar cocoa dusting. Meanwhile, the cake features immaculate layers of mascarpone and sponge fingers. The result is a light, delicate dessert that will definitely have you come back for more.

Highlight

  • Pistachio-flavoured tiramisu
  • An authentic Italian dining experience
  • Friendly, rustic ambience

11. Rivegauche

Hailing from France, Rivegauche has been spotlighting French cakes and bakes since 1993. Their take on the Italian classic calls for coffee liquor sponges, which boast the bold aroma of espresso. They are cushioned by layers of opulent tiramisu mousse, put together from a special recipe. The dusting on top completes the tiramisu with a perfect measure of bitterness, which prevents it from becoming cloying.

On a side note, Rivegauche is best known for their signature Guanaja cake. The cake is the epitome of decadence, using the finest French Valrhona Gauanja dark chocloate. Chocolate mousses, sponges, ganache and pralines sit atop a sumptuous feuillentine base – all underneath the embrace of a gleaming chocolate surface.

Highlight

  • Free islandwide delivery for orders S$120 and above
  • Signature Guanaja cake using the finest chocolate ingredients
  • Backed by more than two decades of expertise in pastry-making
