The cookies from Guilt are worth skipping your diets plans for. What started out as a home bakery specialising in gooey, chunky cookies has since grown into a full-fledged bakery along Arab Street. Founders Grace Kim and Kirsty Tang brings a touch of whimsy into each sweet creation ($4.50/ $5.50); you’ll find cheekily named cookies based on pop culture. Highlights include the Fifty Shades of Grey, an earl grey vanilla cookie with pistachio and white cocoa butter; Park Bench Jelly, made in collaboration with famed sandwich joint Park Bench Deli; and a coconut kayak cheesecake-inspired Kaya Jenner.

It might be an ice cream parlour, but most diners are here for Kooks' molten lava cookie that oozes with a gooey centre filled with either chocolate or matcha. Choose to have it with a scoop of ice cream (from $8.80) for the ultimate sugar rush.

Other unique creations also include the cereal prawn cookies ($19.80) with flecks of dried shrimp and the goreng pisang ($19.80) with banana chips and bread crumb coating to recreate the popular fried street snack.

True to its slogan, "baking with chunks, not chips" these cookies are generous with its chocolate quota. Bestsellers include Triple Chunk Chocolate Cookie ($2.95) and Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate Cookie ($2.95). The trick is to eat them warm.

You can smell the baked goods before you even catch a glimpse of the stall – a mark of a good cookie place. The classic chocolate chip cookie is light and crisp but far from dry and being too crumbly. Even with less sugar used – in a bid to make healthier cookies – these are some of the better-tasting cookies out there.

This charming retail outlet serves up some of the most delicious, and unique cookies. It might come with a slightly pricey tag ($32-$38) but where else can you find tom yam and nasi lemak cookies?
