Unique Desserts Worth Traveling For

Food guides who specialize in desserts, like Jennifer Earle in London whose Chelsea Chocolate Ecstasy tour and Mayfair Chocolate tour are hands-down trips to add to your list of top things to do – share some of their city’s dessert hotspots, but don’t be surprised if run-of-the-mill chocolate cake and apple pie aren’t always the top contenders; worldwide, there are unique options that surpass our childhood favorites.

So the next time you’re on a guided trip in Thailand, Turkey, China, Singapore, Japan, Morocco, or¬†India, be sure to request a detour to somewhere that serves one of the following mouth-watering unique desserts. Who needs vanilla ice cream when you can have India’s gulab jamun, or fried dough submerged in sweet syrup?

Fried Coconut Cake, Thailand

Revani (semolina cake with orange syrup), Turkey

Tangyuan (sweet glutinous rice balls), China

Ais Kacang (shaved ice with red beans, sweet corn, and grass jelly), Singapore

Daifuku (glutinous rice cake with sweet bean paste), Japan

Halwa, Morocco

Gulab Jamun (fried dough boiled in syrup), India
