Widely-acknowledged as one of the top contenders for best tiramisu in Singapore, L’Artelier Tiramisu serves nothing else but tiramisu, so you know they are truly dedicated to perfecting this sweet treat.

You can’t go wrong with tiramisu from an Italian bistro, and Supply & Demand is proof of that.

Although their mains like pasta and Asian-fusion food are popular with diners, what really steals the show here is the S&D Italian Style Tiramisu – an item that definitely gets ordered by regulars.

The dessert is described by many as properly rich and creamy, thanks to the intense espresso-soaked savoiradi and the fact that they use TWO kinds of liqueur!

4. The 1925 Brewing Co. Restaurant

Those who are unaware may come to this microbrewery and restaurant to grab an affordable beer, but the ones who really know are really just here for the tiramisu.

Don’t be fooled by the tiramisu’s simple appearance – often dubbed the best tiramisu in Singapore, it is soaked in aromatic coffee liqueur, layered with rich mascarpone cheese, generously powdered with cocoa, and then topped with homemade sea salt chocolate to create a heavenly combination you never imagined possible.

Address: 261 Joo Chiat Rd, Singapore 427515

6. Super Dario Lasagne

While the lasagne served at Super Dario Lasagne has its own fair share of detractors, you’ll find that almost everyone is in love with the cafe’s tiramisu.

Made with aromatic espresso, high-quality mascarpone cheese, liqueur, and topped with the right dose of espresso powder and chocolate mousse, this tiramisu is made to please, unless you’re on a diet, then you really shouldn’t be reading this article in the first place.

7. Bella Pizza

There’s no better way to end off a satisfying meal than with tiramisu whipped to perfection.

Bella Pizza’s take on the tiramisu is simple but definitely authentic, making this a safe option to check out if you don’t want fanciful flavours, or just want to wrap up your meal with an uncomplicated dessert.

8. iO Italian Osteria

The fact that it lacks the familiar yet overwhelming taste of liqueur is what I love most about iO Italian Osteria’s Pistachio Tiramisu ($14). Dusted with pistachio atop, the layer of mascarpone was surprisingly fluffy and light. The coffee soaked ladyfingers too, held the same textural experience with the added punch of bittersweetness in each delicious forkful. Though the nutty flavour of pistachio was not pronounced, it worked really well as a delicate “pick me up” – moist, not too sweet and simply melt-in-your-mouth. #Burpple #burpplesg #sgfoodie #foodagram #sgfoodies #sgfood #foodsg #foodspotting #foodiesg #throwback #8dayseat #eatoutsg #iweeklyfood #sgeats #sgeatout #igsg #sgig #openrice #stfood #pistachiocake #foodphotography #igdaily #igfood #instafood #foreverhungry #pistachio #tiramisu #stfoodtrending #ioitalianosteriasg #ioitalianosteria

For those who prefer milder flavours, or are simply huge fans of pistachios, iO Italian Osteria offers a tiramisu that you’ll keep dreaming about having again – we’re not exaggerating!

Made with chopped pistachio, mascarpone and coffee-infused biscuit, this Italian restaurant’s moist tiramisu comes with a fragrant coffee aroma without an overpowering alcohol taste. This helps to bring out the other flavours in the cake for a truly wholesome tasting experience.

9. Awfully Chocolate

Although this is probably one of the most expensive tiramisus in town, many agree that Awfully Chocolate’s rendition is worth every cent.

Sticking true to the recipe with mascarpone cheese and sponges oozing kahlua (coffee-flavoured liqueur from Mexico), what makes this a must-try is the silky chocolate and fluffy airy cream, which are unique to these chocolate experts.

In addition, the portion is large enough to serve two to four people – no wonder even tourists will make sure they give Awfully Chocolate’s Chocolate Tiramisu a shot!

10. 2am:dessertbar

Pastry chef Janice Wong is famous for her whimsical and creative dessert creations at 2am:dessertbar, and you can expect her tiramisu to be nothing less than fancy.

Best described as a tiramisu that has been deconstructed and put together in a bowl, this is an interesting take on an otherwise common dessert that would certainly grab your attention.

Coffee liqueur is presented in the dessert as jelly, and the mascarpone cheese topped with a scoop of espresso ice-cream – where else could you possibly find such a unique (and delicious!) interpretation of tiramisu?

Address: 21A Lor Liput, Holland Village, Singapore 277733

11. Trattoria Nonna Lina

What really solidifies Trattoria Nonna Lina’s reputation as an authentic Italian restaurant is none other than the tiramisu.

Unlike other places that serve subpar and bland tiramisu, the one served at this Italian-run restaurant is generously made with thick mascarpone cheese layers and superb espresso sponge fingers – not hard to imagine why people would call this one of the best tiramisu to have in Singapore.

Address: 61 Cantonment Rd, Singapore 089757

12. Da Paolo Gastronomia

Tiramisu is Da Paola’s signature dessert, and for good reason: everyone loves the Italian savoiardi biscuits soaked in Italian coffee and Marsala, layered with creamy mascarpone cheese, and then topped with premium Valrhona chocolate.

If you can’t get enough of this luscious tiramisu, here’s the good news: they even have a 1.6kg tiramisu party bowl that you can either share with your family and friends or indulge by yourself, if you wish.

13. Pietro Ristorante Italiano

It may be difficult for everyone to agree on what good tiramisu is, but it’s easy to agree that this one at Pietro Ristorante Italiano is definitely fantastic.

The coffee flavours in their tiramisu are rich enough to perk you up but mild enough to have you finishing everything without feeling sick. You could probably even have another plate of tiramisu and still keep craving more of the smooth, creamy coffee goodness!

Address: 12 Jln Kelulut, Singapore 809030

14. One Bar Cafe

If you need a caffeine fix, head to One Bar Cafe and order their signature tiramisu – yes, you read that right!

Even if you’re not a fan of coffee, you’ll be addicted to this espresso dessert that is made moist, airy, and lightly-sweetened in just the right amount.

15. Maccha House

You don’t have to be a matcha lover in order to appreciate this silky-sweet goodness from Maccha House.

If you haven’t already heard, this is an extremely famous matcha tiramisu from Kyoto, with 10,000 servings sold globally each day!

Many who have tried this tiramisu before are infatuated with the delicate balance of flavours from the different ingredients. Some may say that the matcha taste is a little too light for their liking, but that also means that you get to fully appreciate the sweet vanilla chiffon and mascarpone cream – not a bad thing!

Address: 181 Orchard Rd, B1-39/40/41/42/43/44/45/K1/K6, Singapore 238896

16. Pocoloco

Pocoloco is the place to go for delicious tiramisu without the expensive price tag. In fact, some even say that the tiramisu offered here is much better than many high-end restaurants!

While many places tend to serve soggy ladyfingers, the secret to Pocoloco’s successful tiramisu is the fact that their Italian coffee liquor-infused ones are satisfyingly crunchy.

The unique textures of this tiramisu make this a dangerously addictive dessert, but the good thing is that its inexpensive price won’t burn a hole in your wallet – that is, unless you succumb to temptation and order too many servings of this yummy treat.

What makes a good tiramisu?

Whether you’re a tiramisu fan on the hunt for the best tiramisu in Singapore or just want a good dessert to end off a nice dinner, having some ideas of what makes a good tiramisu will probably help you decide if the tiramisu you’ve ordered is worth the calories.

There are a few components to a tiramisu, and here are each aspect you’ll have to consider.

1. Biscuits

The Italian version comes with a ladyfinger and if you see a restaurant serving it with this, it probably means that the chef goes for something more traditional and authentic.

Whichever type of biscuit is used, a good tiramisu should contain biscuits that are well soaked with liquid but still maintain its fluffiness, so you don’t feel like all you’re eating is a soggy cake.

They are also layered between mascarpone, which gives you a rich, creamy texture between the fluffy biscuits.

2. Mascarpone

Traditional tiramisu contains mascarpone, which is a type of cheese that is often used in Italian recipes. The texture of mascarpone should feel like a creamy, indulgent mousse, without being too cloying.

In some updated versions, chefs use a smaller amount of cheese and more whipped egg white instead, giving it a lighter texture.

Tiramisu-lovers who prefer a more traditional taste will usually prefer more mascarpone, but the lighter version has its own fans too.

3. Coffee and alcohol

The liquid that goes into the dessert is also an important feature to look out for. Most tiramisus are served with a strong shot of espresso. Many traditional recipes are made without any booze, but there are tiramisu-lovers who only go for those that are served with alcohol.

The alcohol used should be able to balance the bitter taste of coffee, and regardless of which type of coffee and alcohol is used, most tiramisu-lovers will agree that the liquid shouldn’t be so overwhelming that you can’t taste the rest of the dessert. It’s all about balance!
