Fun fact: the beloved, indulgent cheesecake we know today claimed its fame at the 776BC Olympic Games as a Grecian post-game delicacy — who would've thought?

Here are 13 great places to get your cheesecake fix.

This quaint, cotton candy-coloured hole-in-the-wall along is easy to spot in the row of shophouses near Duxton.

Also good is the super rich Speculoos Cheesecake ($7.90) with caramel and ginger accents.

Note this down as your go-to spot for date night. Tucked away in the newly refurbished Alkaff Mansion, think intimate conversations over small plates and cocktails. Of course, a dinner date is not complete without dessert. While it isn't the prettiest dessert, the Tarta de Queso “La Viña” ($4.90) truly is a must-order. This Basque dessert comes with caramelised and almost burnt edges, a spongy exterior, and an oozy, irresistible cheese centre.   Pair it with their version of Sangria, Tinto De Pintxos ($18), and you’re golden!

Worth a trip to the west is this hot new cafe in Pasir Panjang with good coffee and better cheesecakes. Featured is their light and fluffy Burnt Cheesecake ($7.50) which contrasts the cheesy, soft, moist centre with a slightly charred top. Wash it down with a Matcha Latte ($6) or a spicy Turmeric Latte ($5).

With exposed brick and hand painted ceramic wall art, this cozy restaurant is ideal for special occasions. Their open kitchen is situated in the center of the room, so you are almost guaranteed an immersive, real Catalonian dining experience. Every bit worth the hype is Olivia’s Creamy Homemade Cheesecake ($14 a slice, $80 for the whole cake). Think liquid gold — a delectable blend of cream and blue cheese — pooling around an almond tart base to create a truly addictive, decadent dessert we can’t get enough of.

Kiroi Freshly Baked Cheese Cake (Alexandra)

For Cheap and Good Souffle Cheesecake

The souffle craze has hit our shores and brought in with it an influx of souffle-centred desserts. However, before all that, this bakery in Alexandra has been doling out platters of light and fluffy cheesecake. Good for sharing is their Kiroi Japanese Cheese Cake ($8) — a moist and light cake that somehow boasts a rich fullness in every bite. These pillowy treats are best consumed warm!

Lucia Cakes

For Well-Balanced Berry Cheesecakes

If you’re in the vicinity of Club Street and you’ve made sure to ring them up to check if they are open (Tue-Sat, 10am-7pm), their Ombre Berry Cheesecake ($6/slice, $45/whole) will make the hassle worth your while. With no added food colouring, this light mousse-like cheesecake is a dream set atop a biscuit base.
