For Cheesy Desserts
From cheesecake tarts to the rare Idiazabal Cheesecake, which uses a smokey rich Spanish cheese, Queic has it all when it comes to cheesy desserts. Aside from their signature Olivia Burnt Cheesecake ($15 for 4-inch), other yummy offerings include the American Cheesecake Macaron ($12), sandwiched with creamy New York Cheesecake filling and a yuzu-orange compote where Burppler Jeremy Holden says "the fruity tang cuts through the cream cheese, making it well balanced."

For Everything Mac & Cheese
At The Big Cheese, you can create your own DIY Make-A-Mac from just $5.90. Or go for the eponymous Big Cheese ($8), a slobby messy mac and cheese that's exactly what Burppler Sherie A wanted. "I chose the specialty Big Cheese which comes with pulled beef, Gruyère and truffle oil. An excellent combo for a lazy afternoon."

For Cheesy Pizza Overload
You've heard of four-cheese pizza, but how about the 8 Cheese Pizza ($35) from industry veterans Da Paolo, laden with smoked date cream, truffle honey and cheeses that include stravacco, mozzarella, oro rosso, provolone and more? Burppler Wuu Yyiizzhhoouu says "Though it's pungent, the umami was balanced, probably to pair w the fantastic date Jam. Crust was unique and good, kinda like a bagel, with a tad of chewiness and a fair bit of structural integrity."

Mr. Holmes Bakehouse

For A Cheesy Pastry
Mr Holmes Bakehouse, the Los Angeles bakery that first popularised the Instagram-worthy cruffins, has a new item on their menu for you cheese lovers. Enter the Bacon Mac & Cheese Danish ($7), a gorgeously-golden danish centred with red cheddar bechamel, bacon Mac & Cheese and flaky herbed croissant crumbs.

Aether House

For French Cheeses
Want to try quality cheeses in their purest form? You must try the Aged & Matured French Cheeses from the newly-opened Aether House, a spot for wines, craft coffees and authentic French cuisine. A platter of 3 types of cheese (120g) go for $32 and goes all the way up to 8 types (320g, $75) WASABIQUE cheese flavored with wasabi. The combination of the freshness of goat cheese with the strong taste of wasabi strikes a perfect balance.

For A 3-Cheese Burnt Cheesecake
Whether it's sourdough, sundried tomato buns, or flavoured cruffins, this homely bakery at Empress Road always nails it. So why wouldn't their Basque Burnt Cheesecake ($7.30) be delicious as well? Baked fresh daily with three types of cheeses, Burpple Ong says it "has a caramelised sweetness with a glorious gooey middle. Too good to resist but it's definitely worth the calories."
