2. Rubberduck


One of Rubberduck’s all-time bestsellers is their Mango-Chia Seed Pudding. Made from a simple trio of fresh mango purée, chia seeds and fresh coconut milk, the pudding is mellow and not too tangy, and creamy without it being too heavy on the palate.

Rubberduck also serves raw cakes such as Raw Vegan Chocolate Brownies, which are gluten, dairy, egg and refined sugar-free, while its delicious tropical treat of Raw Pina Colada Cake is a great vegan choice.

Health By Chocolate is simply a must-try! It is a creamy chocolate mousse-like dessert that sits atop a date and almond base.

4. Ashley’s by Living Food


The Organic Apple Crumble is made with organic apples, and the crumbly topping has a nice crunch and texture to it courtesy of the oats and whole grains in it. The chunky, ample amounts of apples, caramelised with gula melaka and sprinkled with oat nut crumble make for a very hearty yet satisfying dessert. It is one of the many vegetarian options available at Ashley’s by Living Food.

Living Chocolate Tart is dubbed so as it is a raw vegan dessert. It’s a decadent, rich dark chocolate tart with a macadamia and walnut crust. The macadamia nut base is soft enough to provide a good bite along with the chocolate, but yet firm enough to hold the chocolate in place. The lush consistency of the chocolate pairs exceptionally well with the crispy macadamia nut base and there is a good balance of flavours and textures.

5. RGB & The Bean Hive


The gluten-free Moroccan Orange Spice Cake is proving to be one of the most popular items on the menu. Whole almonds are soaked overnight, skinned, milled, and used as the cake base, and the citrus syrup that comes on the side provides a sweet, tangy glaze that compliments the slight nuttiness of the cake.

More of RGB and The Hive’s offerings include vegan desserts, and what’s more killer a combination than vegan waffles with vegan ice cream? Although the range of the daily selection varies, coconut and vanilla soy ice cream are always readily available.

6. Eat with Mune
