You are missing out on a lot if you still haven’t tried the viral San Sebastian cheesecake. With its smooth texture and crispy crust, one bite will make you feel like you are eating a cloud. Süss serves the San Sebastian cheesecake with various sauces like pistachio, mixed berries, white chocolate, lotus, and more. However, you can always order a whole cake if you want to try more than one flavour.

Dolato’s Sweet Potatoes

After being one of the most talked about desserts last winter, Dolato had to bring back their sweet potato creation this year. How does a hot sweet potato, drizzled in toffee or lotus sauce and topped with their special cheesecake gelato sound? Heavenly. You can always switch up the ice cream flavour if you like.

Dolato’s Zucca

Dolato does it again, taking their creations to the next level by introducing ‘Zucca’. This dessert is guaranteed to keep you warm on those extra cold nights with layers of hot pumpkin and bechamel topped with their creamy Qeshta gelato.

If you are a fan of sahlab, this is the perfect dessert for you. Yet another new creation by Dolato is their twist on the traditional sahlab drink by introducing ‘The Sahloob’. Dolato’s take on the usually hot sahlab is made with its coconut gelato sprinkled with pistachios on top to give it the perfect crunch.
