Bar
“If you’ve got a late night craving for something sweet, spare yourself convenience store candy and treat yourself to avant-garde plates of quirky dessert creations at 2am Dessert Bar. Chef Janice Wong has been taking the Singaporean dessert scene by storm with desserts like her Cacao Forest – an amalgamation of cherry chocolate, bergamot, vanilla and whisky. Sweet tooths who are tired of their favourite course being an afterthought will find themselves at home here.”
