Food is such a trademark of Singapore. We have food everywhere and a lot of our dishes are incredibly famous and beloved.
However, as times change, food also has evolved to continue to be relevant and exciting for the new generation.
This has sparked a challenge of sorts among cafes and restaurants to create some of the most beautiful and creative food to draw in the young crowd who are into social media and photogenic food.
So here are 10 awesome cafes with incredibly Instagrammable desserts for you to try out.

Fat Cat is hidden all the way in Bedok but it is definitely one to make a trip out for.
The cafe is famous for their very instagrammable and unique Charcoal Waffles with Salted Egg Yolk Sauce.
The crispy black waffle is topped with a scoop of ice cream and served with salted egg sauce which you can pour over the waffles. While it sounds like an odd combination, the sauce and ice cream really go well with the waffle and make for a great photo and a satisfying treat.
The cafe also serves up interesting (and totally Instagrammable) creations such as Mojito Cocktail Spheres and their Deconstructed Strawberry Cheesecake.
