This New Traditional Dessert Cafe Is Hidden In A Cheongsam Shop

14th March 2024

Siyuan Desserts is hidden in a cheongsam shop at Lavender


While many dessert shops in Singapore decorate their interiors to give them a traditional Chinese look, Siyuan Desserts in Lavender goes a step further by being nestled in a literal cheongsam shop.


Along the walls of Siyuan Desserts’s premises are circular windows that allow you to peer into a space full of Mandarin gowns. If you’re lucky, you may spot seamstresses carefully putting together a stunning cheongsam.


As you enjoy those sights, you can indulge in the traditional Chinese treats that Siyuan Desserts has to offer. We recommend starting with the 3 Mini Bowls ($5) to sample three of the cafe’s specialities: almond, sesame, and walnut paste.


Our personal favourite was the sesame paste (on the right), thanks to its nutty flavour and smooth, creamy texture. It’s also not too sweet, with a hint of bitterness adding balance to the whole.


We also recommend the Orh Nee ($5.50), the classic yam-paste-and-ginkgo dessert that impresses with its velvety texture, sweet goodness, and earthy taste. Don’t forget to add some of the tangerine peel bits to add a burst of citrusy flavour.

Otherwise, get the Cheng Teng with Peach Gum (from $5), which has  warm and chilled options. Filled with snow fungus, red dates, longan, and sweet and aromatic peach gum, this dessert is both refreshing and satisfying to have.


The combination of tasty desserts and unique interiors makes Siyuan Desserts worth a shot. If you’re interested, you’ll just need to walk eight minutes from Lavender MRT to reach this new dessert spot.
