    Das Rad CafeNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Housed in a colonial building along King Street, Das Rad Cafe has been making waves with a scrumptious spread of German fare with prices that are kind to your wallet. Backdropped in Peranakan style interior spruced up with bicycle-themed decorations, it’s an anchor point for Instagram too. Aside from the hearty mains, their lemon peach cheesecake (Kasesahne-Torte in German) is another crowd pleaser on the dessert line, certainly for those who hanker for that additional layer of distinctive flavour to partner the lemony goodness. The symmetry of sourness, sweetness and cheesiness are spot-on, so does the texture. If you’re adamant that peach should not share the spotlight, their classic lemon cheesecake is equally satisfying too.

    We won’t disagree if one says this quaint eatery is a heaven for churros and cronuts. On the other hand, another winner on the menu is their lemon cheesecake. Visually appealing and awards the perfect symmetry of lemony and cheesy flavours sitting on a crackling crust; it’s something everyone should experience. Gorging down the cake all alone is surely satisfying but the real deal is jazzing it up with chocolate syrup and crumbles as well as batons of churros. Sinfully delicious!

    Housed in a whitewashed colonial building at the heart of Georgetown, this charming cafe has been making positive waves with a limited but exciting menu. Chomp down series of Western dishes, delectable desserts and quality brews amidst exposed brick walls and chic lightings. Rather underrated but scores in both presentation and taste, their lemon cheesecake is a real winner. Aesthetically assembled, a generous slice of cake is garnished with chocolate syrup, topped with whipped cream and chunks of strawberry. One would never hesitate to go for seconds or even thirds.

    Some people like grandeur atmosphere, some prefer it casual and colourful. What Book Sandwich Cafe does is combining them together and presenting a picture-perfect backdrop that has you at hello. Hearty sandwiches, Western fare and selection of spaghettis are regular runners on the menu but be sure of ending your climax with a slice of lemon cheesecake. The dense and creamy cake with cracker base is worth getting fat as the flavours are spot-on, and the smatterings of strawberries on the wooden platter adds a nice acidic kick.

    Secawan Hutton

The breakfast and brunch dishes are the best bet to get started and when it comes to dessert, one would not want to miss their lemon cheesecake. An exemplary one should have a thick cracker crust, creamy centre with lemony tinges and a cheesy layer covering the entire face of the dessert, Secawan Hutton certainly aced in all points. An artistic dusting of cocoa powder by the side makes it even photo-worthy. What better way to complement your lemon cheesecake than a freshly brewed cuppa.

    Located in Gurney Paragon, this colourful and cosy spot offers a respite after a shopping spree with a decent spread of cakes, bites and coffee or tea. Reward yourself with a slice of cheesecake and a freshly brewed coffee served in an adorable mug. The best seller is the Mango rendition but if you need a dose of tanginess, lemon cheesecake will never disappoint. Boasting a velvety texture and flavours that are not overpoweringly citrusy, you might give up on your diet and smoosh onto the glass shelve for another.
