Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth With 16 Sweet Treats From Suntec City
Ours is a nation of food-obsessed people. We endure long queues and hunt down latest food fads, all just to satisfy our rumbling tummies and curated social feeds. Cafe-hopping, as it seems, might possibly the favourite sport of many (including ours). But our sweltering heat and flippant transport system make it difficult to zip around hunting for food.
So if you’re into a food trail that combines variety with comfort, then this is for you. Suntec City houses over 100 dining options – from local delights to modern fusion, and over 18 dessert options that are perfect for those with a sweet tooth. After all, they say we’ve got a separate stomach for desserts, and we can’t think of a better (and more comfortable) way of getting a sugar rush than this. Sweet dreams are indeed made of these candied treats from Suntec City.
1. Ergon – Greek Deli + Café
Suntec City, West Wing, #01-365/366/373/374
Introduce yourself to Mediterranean cuisine in this new addition at Suntec City. The one-of-a-kind Greek grocer and café concept serves Bougatsa ($12) – traditional crispy Greek dessert of sweet milk cream pie in phyllo pastry. Also give their artisanal coffee a try; for the beans were specially roasted by taf in Athens.
2. Windowsill Pies
Suntec City, East Wing, #B1-106
We may know of cakes in every imaginable flavour but Windowsill Pies introduces us to a whole new world of pie varieties in their menu. They have 12 different pie flavours – from the tart strawberry lemon, classic grasshopper to the boozy rum and apple.
3. Awfully Chocolate
Suntec City, North Wing, #B1-K1
With a menu that serves up awfully good chocolate desserts, chocoholics will surely enjoy their classic All Chocolate Cake that comes with alternating layers of dark chocolate cake and dark chocolate fudge, making for a simple but indulgent treat.
Suntec City, North Wing, #01-430/432
Cakes might come in many varieties, but the Pandan Angel Sponge Cake is a local creation that we should be proud of. The chiffon layer is light as air, and the delicate sweetness from the pandan is accented by the pink Himalayan salt and coconut buttercream.
5. Maccha House
Suntec City, Fountain Court, #B1-172
Those who are mad for matcha and its purported health benefits will enjoy their matcha-influenced menu. This Japanese green tea powder might have found its way into modern dessert creations like its Maccha tiramisu ($6.40) and mixed dorayaki ($9.90), but it is comforting to know that this place stays true to its roots with the traditional Maccha set.
6. Famous Amos
Suntec City, North Wing, #02-485
Nothing’s quite as intoxicating as the smell of freshly baked cookies – something that Famous Amos knows well, and exploits with their ‘free’ smell. Follow your nose and treat yourself to a bag of their famous chocolate chip cookies.
Suntec City, Fountain Court, #B1-175/176
The classic waffle comes in a Leslie Knope approved combination of fluffy Belgian waffles and fresh cream is a time-tested dessert that you cannot go wrong with. Have it as it is, or have it as a trusty sidekick to the varied ice cream selection – choose from flavours like vanilla bean and caramel fudge brownie.
More than just doing the classics right, try the waffle taco for a remixed ice cream treat. The Oreo-na waffle taco comes with two scoops of ice cream, banana and Oreo bits encased in a crispy waffle taco shell, and the Berry-na waffle taco comes with ice cream with strawberries and bananas.
8. H & J Cake Shop
Suntec City, East Wing, #02-605A
If you’re obsessed about eating colours (like the rainbow cheese toast and the recent unicorn frappe), then this rainbow cake ($45) from H & J Cake Shop will fit perfectly in your to-eat list. Brighten up your mood and appetite as you indulge in this cheerful-looking cake, or opt for classic Chocolate Delight ($26.80), or the adorable fruit gateau ($26.80).
Suntec City, West Wing, #02-312/313
This Spanish froyo franchise took all our hearts away when it landed on our shores –who could resist the warm raffaello sauce drizzled over the tart froyo base, or that juicy burst from fresh fruits to match this healthy dessert? Their Sanum ($6.50) is an iconic one – it comes with your choice of three types of fruits, two crunches and a sauce.
Did you also know that the Suntec City outlet is the biggest one in the world?
10. Krispy Kreme
Suntec City, North Wing, #01-419/420
We are all no stranger to the famous Krispy Kreme, especially their ubiquitous sugar-glazed pillow-soft original glazed doughnuts. But beyond that, their famous treat comes dressed up in snazzy variations which include red velvet, New York cheesecake and other seasonal favourites.
11. W.E.Workshop Element Café
Suntec City, North Wing, #02-441/442
You can’t miss this quaint island cafe located along the busy retail stretch at Level 2, North Wing. The usual brunch suspects include the Scrambled Eggs ($17.60) with waffles, served with roasted potatoes and seasonal greens, and the Scrambled Eggs ($17.60) with a croissant, sausages and some mesclun mix. Waffles are also served with homemade honey butter sauce ($6.90) or with a scoop of gelato ($11.90).
12. Polar Puffs & Cakes
Suntec City, East Wing, #02-607A
You’d probably find that the timeless strawberry rolls (1 pcs $1.40) is something that will never go out of style. This iconic bakery, founded since 1926, has provided us with curry puffs and familiar sugar rolls throughout our childhood.
They even have a rainbow chiffon cake ($6.90) that looks as good as its taste. There’s a strong pandan fragrance and the cake tasted lighter and fluffier than expected.
13. RIVE GAUCHE
Suntec City, East Wing, #B1-K2
If you’re looking for a cake that’ll suit any occasion, then you won’t go wrong with the Guanaja. Their bestseller comes with layers of bittersweet chocolate mousse, chocolate sponge, and crispy biscuit bottom – very much like eating a cake version of a Ferrero Rocher.
14. Thumb Coffee
Suntec City, North Wing, #B1-144
Hailing all the way from Seoul is Thumb Coffee, Korea’s leading dessert cafe brand, along with their special caffeinated blend. The affogato gives you the perk-me-up you need from coffee, and a sweet treat from the soft serve ice cream.
15. Tuk Tuk Cha & Love Mee
Suntec City, Fountain Court, #B1-173/174
Little can beat the Thai milk tea when it comes to its thirst-quenching abilities. It comes loaded with sugar and laced with notes of tea, giving you the perfect kick to tide you past your food coma in the afternoon.
16. Hoshino Coffee
Suntec City, East Wing, #01-651/652
Known for their hand-dripped coffee and intricate desserts, expect to fall in love with their matcha soufflé ($10.80), which was light and airy – a clear mark of a successful soufflé. Other notable mentions include the Pancake Soufflé Style ($9.80) which will be the lightest pancake you’ll enjoy, and the french toast ($9.80) topped with sugar and cream.
