1. The Emperor’s Romance ($52.90)

True to its brand, their Asian-inspired flavours is evident in The Emperor’s Romance cheesecake. This clever concoction of lychees, raspberries and rose is the ideal Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone. Be charmed by the glossy crystalline glaze with rose petals juxtaposed on the smooth cream cheese centre. A crowd-pleaser by many, this lychee cheesecake is a delightful treat everyone will enjoy.

2. King Cat of the Mountain ($52.90)

Indulge in this luscious confection that’s packed with creamy goodness. The rich flavour from the Mao Shan Wang durian complements the silky smooth cream cheese perfectly. If you’re a big fan of this King of Fruit, this cheesecake will be your next favourite.

3. Milo Dinosaur ($42.90)

Singapore’s favourite indulgent drink is now transformed into an equally intoxicating dessert with heaps of Milo powder sprinkled all over the cake. This rich and chocolate malty cheesecake melts in your mouth and leaves you wanting more than just a slice.

4. Sicilian Wild Cats ($48.90)

It’s hard to find a Halal Tiramisu Cheesecake, as it usually contains rum. But at Cat & the Fiddle, they didn’t let that get in their way of producing one of the best in Singapore! This wonderful no-bake cheesecake creation is a combination of ingredients of espresso, mascarpone cheese, cream and espresso-soaked lady’s finger - a great pick-me-up at any time of the day.

5. Sweet and Smokey Taffy ($45.90)

Perfectly balanced, Sweet and Smokey Taffy takes the cake for being one of the best Salted Caramel Cheesecake in town. Its cookie base is made from crunchy OREO biscuits, topped with sinful cream cheese, wrapped in a blanket of sea salt toffee for maximum satisfaction. Each bite is a celebration that beckons you for more.

6. Apple of My Eye ($48.90)

They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, and we couldn’t agree more, especially with Apple of My Eye. A playful take on the classic Apple Crumble Cheesecake, this indulgent treat is made up of golden biscuit crumbs as its base, topped with fresh apples with a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon for that extra oomph.

7. Once in the Blue Moon ($48.90)

For an explosion of berry flavours, Once in the Blue Moon is Cat & the Fiddle’s take on the classic and indulgent Blueberry Cheesecake. Loaded with fresh blueberries so you’ll get a berry in each bite. Balanced with velvety cream cheese, blueberry mousse and topped with a glossy layer of blueberry glaze – this cheesecake is a delightful treat.

8. Charred Eclipse ($48.90)

Riding on the bandwagon of Toasty Burnt Cheesecake, also known as Basque Burnt Cheesecake, Cat & the Fiddle adds a nice spin to this popular treat. Using a fusion of Martabak cheese (Indonesia’s famous dessert) and cream cheese, this is not your regular cheesecake as the fusion of cream cheese and Martabak cheese creates a must-try gastronomical experience, one slice is never enough.

9. Gula Me Gusta ($48.90)

One of their signature Asian influenced cheesecakes, Gula Me Gusta, is a Pandan Gula Melaka cheesecake that closely resembles an Ondeh-Ondeh dessert (a local Singaporean dessert). This sublime pandan-infused cream cheese is spread across a base of savoury Gula Melaka sponge cake, topped with a Gula Melaka glaze. Perfect for an afternoon tea, the Gula Me Gusta is a winner if you have a sweet tooth and love local desserts.
