The Best Tiramisu In The Klang Valley
Did you know? Tiramisù is one of the top five most recognised Italian words in the world.
Made with luscious coffee-soaked ladyfingers stacked upon silky layers of mascarpone cream and finished with a delicate sprinkle of cocoa powder, tiramisù is hard to resist. The Italian word translates to "pick me up," which is apt given its light caffeine kick. From Alexis' renowned tiramisù cake to Gooddam's classic rendition of the dessert, we’ve rounded up seven spots in the Klang Valley for your next tiramisù fix.
Michelle Young was established just last year in 2020, but the bakery's best-selling tiramisù bowl is already a fan favourite. The charming café is also known for their stuffed doughnuts, which are made with Japanese flour and filled with homemade cream in flavours such as pistachio, Nutella and even tiramisù. Assorted cookies, cakes and scones are also available at the Bukit Jalil-based eatery.

Having been on the menu for over a decade, the tiramisù cake at Alexis Bistro is nostalgic to say the least. Served with a drizzle of strawberry sauce and topped with caramelised nuts, it's no wonder the cake is a Malaysian favourite for special occasions. If you're dining in, the decadent dessert pairs perfectly with a cup of coffee.

One of Tatler Dining's Top 20 Restaurants 2021, Gooddam is led by head chef Daniel Yap, who previously co-founded Pop Up Dining KL. While not always available as part of seasonal set menus, Gooddam's tiramisù is a popular item for delivery and take away. It is, after all, our dining editor's pick. Some consider it difficult not to eat the whole serving in one sitting.
