Desserts in Singapore

Today at the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we are getting lost through the Asian continent to enjoy the flavours of Singapore´s gastronomy. Can you imagine a better plan for today than discovering its most famous desserts and sweets?

Singapore´s idea of dessert differs from the classic one. They mix sweet and salty flavours, and they give importance to texture, including jelly, sago pearls or aloe vera on their recipes.

Cendol. It is a very popular dessert in Southeast Asia. Including just four ingredients, this dessert is an indescribable mix of flavours. It is made of palm sugar (Gula Melaka), coconut milk; green rice noodles perfumed with Pandan and crushed ice. Sometimes people add red beans, durian, herb jelly or sweet corn.

Coconut jam. Coconut is a very useful ingredient in Singapore´s recipes, and the star of this dessert, which in turn is part of other dishes such as Kaya Toast, which we´ll talk about right after. This is a very easy recipe. It is prepared with coconuts, sugar, water and salt.

Kaya Toast. It is considered the national breakfast dish in Singapor. Coming from China and with a sweet flavour, this is a sandwich prepared with kaya or coconut jam, glazed, coconut milk, eggs, pandan and butter or margarine. It is usually dipped into a mix of boiled eggs and soy sauce and served with Chinese tea.
