We’ve all been there. You and your friends just had a 2-hour long dinner to catch up but it’s still not enough. You leave the restaurant and now the whole group aimlessly drifts around the mall.
What you’re looking for, is a place to settle down so that you and your friends can carry on your conversation comfortably. Because window shopping gets boring after a while.
So we’ve found 6 places for you and your friends to visit after dinner, if you’re craving for desserts or are just looking to drink.
Desserts And Drinks
1. 2am : dessertbar
If you’re craving for some artsy desserts, then 2am : dessertbar is the place for you. For the majority of us who can never seem to grasp the concept of modern art, we can focus on the taste of the desserts instead.
The thing about this dessert bar is that they actually recommend alcohol pairings with the dessert that you select. Desserts to try are the Cassis Plum ($24), Cacao Forest ($24), and the Tsujihei Green Tea Tart ($20).
The dishes are all carefully plated and look like an abstract art piece that’s almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
Prices here are steep but great service, ambience and food makes the trip to Holland Village worth it.
2am : dessertbar
Address: 21a Lorong Liput, Holland Village, Singapore, 277733
Opening Hours: Tue – Fri: 3pm – 2am, Sat – Sun: 2pm – 2am, Mon: Closed

2. PS.Cafe at Ann Siang Hill

Always a good place to hang out and chill, PS.Cafe serves a wide variety of drinks, from coffees and teas to juices and milkshakes. There’s also alcohol if you’re in the mood.
For dessert, order the Sticky Date Pudding ($15) which comes sitting in a pool of toffee sauce.

With an exhaustive menu of wines, beers, cocktails and other spirits, Cook & Brew is the perfect place to chill if you’re in the area with a big group of friends.
If you’re not here for the alcohol, stay for the dessert and swanky decor. Don’t leave without trying their signature Molten Sticky Toffee Pudding ($14). Order it early because it takes 20 minutes to prepare.

Also, it’s a Scottish bar so you never need to worry about a small drink menu. They have over 250 selections of whiskies for you to choose from. If whisky isn’t your thing, then try their micro-brewed beers.

5. Yong He Eating House
If you’re a tau huay fan like us, then you can try Yong He Eating House. They are one of the few places in Singapore that sells Taiwanese savoury beancurd. The menu may be small but the food is good.
From Taiwanese Mee Sua (for those of you with your Ah Zong Mee Sua cravings) to the Fried Spring Onion Pancakes, this is the place to go for those still suffering from Taiwan travel withdrawals.
