Checkers Deli at the Hilton Singapore is well known for its American Cheesecake ever since its introduction during the 1970s. On top of that, the hotel's deli also offers cheesecakes in various flavours, French pastries and macarons.

I bought 2 macarons from Checkers Deli - $3.05 each or comes in a box of 6 or 9
Felt this was quite yummy!! Wasnt sweet at all, soft but not too crumbly, great take on the lemon macaron I feel! On par with Basilico's! 4.5/5
Was really intrigued by how this would taste like so bought this too! There isnt a carrot taste at all sadly! Though I think its probably carrot cake stuffing in the middle? Sure looked like it to me! It was not too sweet either, but cant really tell what I'm eating because it lacked flavours! 3.5/4
Overall, I think Checkers Deli's macarons are worth buying! Not just their cheesecakes (: They have flavours like raspberry, pistachio, blueberry + chocolate, etc!
I tried all 10 cakes available for the day and surprisingly, Carrot Walnut ($8.85) is my favourite as I’m never a fan of American-style carrot cakes. This was moist with plenty of grated carrot and chopped walnuts to make me happy. Cream cheese frosting was a tad sweet though.

The American Cheesecake ($7.80) was neither too rich nor heavy. Nice buttery base tickled our tastebuds :P The texture of the cake was slightly more crumbly than smooth. There was a faint taste of lemon zest too. We would prefer it if the cheesecake is more creamy and with the "melt in the mouth" texture, just like the one from B Bakery. Nonetheless, it was a great cheesecake.
A & J's rating: 4.25/5
The Hazelnut Royaltine ($6.50) was heavenly! Thick crunchy hazelnut praline, smooth chocolate mouse with hint of dark bittersweet chocolate sandwiched in between. Fabulous~ It tasted just like a thicker version of ferrero rocher. It was so rich and yet not too overwhelming to make us feel sick. We love the crunchy hazelnut praline most. This cake even won our hearts over from King C! Our No. 1 cake for now! All hail hazelnut royaltine!
