Craving for some Japanese desserts? Singapore has plenty of them available in speciality bakeries and cafes. Among the familiar ones include Japanese cream puffs, dorayaki, Hokkaido cheesecakes and of course, matcha-based treats. Below is our 2022 list of Top 10 Places for Japanese Desserts in Singapore that come highly recommended.
Châteraisé is no stranger to many fans who love Japanese desserts and pastries. This famous Japan-based patisserie uses only high-quality and the freshest ingredients possible with little-to-no preservatives and other additives. Choices are aplenty here, ranging from chilled cream puffs to dorayaki, daifuku and cakes. You can locate Châteraisé throughout Singapore, namely Jurong East, Novena Square 2 and ION Orchard, just to name a few.
2) 108 Matcha Saro Suntec City
Coming all over from Japan, 108 Matcha Saro made its Singapore debut in Suntec City back in 2019. As the name suggests, they specialise in all things matcha and also hojicha. Try their bestselling obanyaki (Japanese stuffed pancake) in soft and fluffy Original Dough or Matcha Dough. Depending on your choices, they have different fillings like Matcha Custard and Red Bean Paste with Warabi Mochi. Some of the other desserts worth trying include the chewy and jelly-like Warabi Mochi, soft serves and parfaits.
3) Kyushu Pancake
Kyushu Pancake uses its own pancake flour mix made from different high-quality natural ingredients. Some of the ingredients in question include wheat from Oita Prefecture and pressed barley from Saga Prefecture among others. If that’s not enough, their flour mix contains no added nasties like artificial fragrance and additives. Among their signature pancakes include Berry-licious Pancake (assorted berries topped with vanilla ice cream) and Kyushu Good Ol’ Classic. The latter consists of pancakes with side servings of white wine honey and fruit syrup.
4) Dulcet & Studio
Fans of Japanese chiffon cakes might want to give Dulcet & Studio a try. They are pillowy soft, moist and flavourful but not too sweet. Here, they offer plenty of flavours like pandan, matcha, yuzu and chocolate. Apart from cakes, Dulcet & Studio sells other yummy desserts like assorted cream puffs and puddings. You can locate them at Takashimaya and Connection One. Last month, Dulcet & Studio have opened a new outlet on the basement level of i12 Katong.
5) Gokoku Japanese Bakery
Originally from Japan, Gokoku Japanese Bakery has an illustrious history spanning over 60 years since 1961. They pride themselves in offering quality baked goods using only the finest ingredients possible and even healthy grains. Not to forget, all of their baked goods are made fresh on a daily basis. If you love something sweet, do try their signature Red Bean Anpan consisting of chunky Hokkaido red bean paste or others like Jumbo Coronet with custard whipped cream and Chocoladen — a Danish pastry filled with a chocolate bar on the inside and thick chocolate coating on the outside.
Morozoff’s history in making gourmet chocolates stretches way back to 1931 in Japan. Using only the finest cacao and other ingredients, start off with their box of Favourite or Premium chocolate pieces. They offer cookies as well, namely the melt-in-your-mouth buttery Odette cookies and the unique leaf-shaped Feuillage cookies topped with sliced hazelnuts or almonds. Cake lovers, in the meantime, can look forward to their rich and slightly tangy Hokkaido Cream Cheese Cake or the equally delicious Hokkaido Mascarpone Cheese Cake.
7) Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory
Love all things cheese? Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory has plenty to offer here, where they only use premium ingredients that are sourced from around the world such as Japan, France and Italy. Their milky Camembert Cookies are a must-try and so do their Cow Cow Sundae. The latter consists of a soft serve with savoury-sweet toppings of milk cheesecake and a piece of Salt & Camembert cookie. Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory has several outlets islandwide, namely Raffles City and ION Orchard.
Short for “La Tour Amitie Otaru”, which means “The Amiable Tower of Otaru”, LeTAO’s speciality lies in its Double Fromage and Chocolat Double. The former refers to its signature double-layered cheesecake made from a combination of no-bake and baked cheesecake. For the latter, their Chocolat Double combines the exquisite taste of cacao with a layer of baked cheesecake on the inside. They also sell cookies, biscuits and chocolates made from premium ingredients.
9) Henri Charpentier
A well-known French-inspired Japanese Patisserie that needs no introduction, given its rich history in Japan since 1969. Try their famous freshly-baked Original Financier, which is actually a buttery yet spongy cake shaped in a rectangular mould. They have other flavours too including chocolate chip and matcha. Other recommended items include Henri Charpentier’s signature The Shortcake consisting of fresh cream & strawberries and the rich Double Cheesecake.
10) Kamome Bakery
Located in Goldhill Shopping Centre, Kamome Bakery offers varieties of Japanese-style baked goods with no added preservatives. Their recommended item? That would be the soft and deliciously chewy Kamome Toast Bread. But let’s talk about their sweet items, covering from Red Bean & Butter to Banana and Brown Sugar and Yuzu Chestnut.
