The best cheesecakes in Singapore only… none of that home-baked basque burnt cheesecakes bs…

One thing that Singaporeans love more than cafes is cheese. We’re talking anything that’s gooey and stretchy, like the viral Hokkaido cheese tarts and basque burnt cheesecakes from years ago. And who can resist a sinful cheese toast. But of all the cheesy dishes in Singapore, the humble cheesecake stands at the top.

Thankfully, with how vibrant our cafe scene is, you can find all sorts of cheesecakes in Singapore, including the classic New York cheesecake, Japanese cheesecakes, and even vegan cheesecakes.

If you search for “the best cheesecakes in Singapore”, this is the image you’ll find flooding the internet.

Unlike the conventional cheesecakes, Olivia’s Signature Cheesecake (from $16.5) is a combination of sweet cream cheese and savoury blue cheese. All these intense flavours are elevated with an extra layer of almond tart as the base. Other unique cheesecakes on the menu include the Brie Cheesecake and Salted Toffee Cheesecake.

These cheesecakes are apparently inspired by the original recipe from Olivia’s mother, Celina Franco, who had spent several months to perfect. it.

2. Kunthaville

If you’re looking for vegan cheesecakes in Singapore that actually tastes good, this might be the only stop.

Kunthaville is a plant-based authentic Ceylonese restaurant, and while their mains are loaded with mouthwatering spices, you absolutely cannot leave without a slice of their vegan cheesecake. Kunthaville has mastered the art of baking a cheesecake with absolutely no animal products or by-products. Closely resembling a regular cheesecake, their Vegan Cheesecake ($9) is creamy and cheesy; you wouldn’t be able to tell it’s vegan if we didn’t mention.

You can also get a whole cheesecake, but we recommend ordering a few days in advance.

If regular cheesecakes are too boring for you, let us introduce you one of the most famous cafes in Singapore for basque burnt cheesecakes.

Dirty Cheesecake Bakery & Cafe thinks regular cheesecake is not exciting enough. Hence, their menu comprises unconventional flavours such as Mao Shan Wang ($42) and Ondeh Ondeh cheesecake ($34). All their flavours have one thing in common — a perfectly caramelised crust that encapsulates all that melty, gooey goodness in the centre.

All the basque burnt cheesecakes are available in sliced or whole cakes.

4. LeTAO

We get it. New York cheesecakes can be a bit too rich for some. If you’re someone who has a lighter palate, we recommend Japanese cheescakes.

When we’re talking Japanese cheesecakes, we must talk about LeTAO, coming straight from Hokkaido, LeTAO. It’s recognised as one of best cheesecakes in Japan, and many tourists would flock over to their stores just for a taste.

But here’s the twist. Their cheesecake is slightly different from what you would expect tin Japan. Using a creamy mascarpone imported from Italy, their best-seller — the Double Fromage — is bestowed with an unparalleled texture of snow. It’s velvety and smooth, with a slightly butter crust at the bottom for extra richness.

Priced affordably from $29.9, the bakery also serves other variations of the Double Fromage such as Chocolate and Pumpkin.

Kiroi is where to go for the best Japanese cheesecake in Singapore. Don’t believe us? Check out how many 5-stars reviews they have earned on Google.

Located in Queenstown, Kiroi is known for its affordable Japanese cheesecakes — the light and fluffy kind. Without a doubt, the Original Cheesecake ($9) is their best-seller. But, if you want something a little different, Kiroi also houses interesting variations like raisin, pandan, and even a rainbow design for the kids.

The epitome of Japanese cheesecakes, Kiroi’s version has an incredibly light and airy texture, and is accompanied by a delicate flavour that is not too sweet, making it a perfect treat for any occasion.
