Archive for the ‘*K Ki ケーキ’ Category
And here I am. Finally on my way to the much raved about K Ki. I have seen countless photos of K Ki’s enticing cakes and they are always calling out to me. Ok I admit I’m slow but it’s better late than never right? :P Anyway I shall not attempt to go into the details about how K Ki came about but I believe it’s (almost) every girl’s dream come true. How fortunate to be able to work alongside your husband, doing something that you really enjoy! :D
Took a trip down just yesterday and the nice weather made the walk from Chinatown MRT station a little less painful. The fellow foodie (you will find out who in just a bit!) reminded me that their cakes get snapped up very quickly and I did a little jog in order to catch up with her (now you know it’s a she) pace when we were going upslope. Phew. Talk about getting a little workout before some indulgence! Hehe.
I fell in love with K Ki the moment I stepped in. It’s cosy, neat and simple. Somehow, I find that the wooden furniture gives the place a very nice, rustic feel and it makes one feel at ease immediately. Absolutely nothing pretentious here.
Look at that! Now I feel like kicking myself for not asking who sewed all these. Probably Delphine?
No fancy red roses. Just a very adorable looking white flower. Not sure what is it called.. And we were wondering if it’s real!
Ta-dah! This is Stargirl, author of Le Petit Connoisseur. She certainly is petit and looks younger than what she really is! I truly enjoyed her company :) Full of life and bursting with energy. I feel so old beside her for she is 7 years my junior!
Hello! *waves* I will tell you more about the Little Drom Store later :) Anyway there were only four different types of cakes left when we got there around 1.45pm and we decided to share all four types! Act now, think later :P
Call me silly but I was a little worried when Stargirl told me that Kinabaru ($8) is basically layers of coconut mousse, passion fruit creme and a spongy chocolate base. I don’t detest coconut but I’m not entirely a huge fan of it either. Passion fruit? The only thing that comes close is the body scrub that I have. Sorry but I don’t really fancy tart flavours. It got me thinking that the only consolation would probably be the chocolate base! I took my first bite with caution and.. hey it’s not as bad as I thought it would be! The coconut mousse is light and smooth, plus the passion fruit had a nice refreshing twist! Maybe I’m a little ‘conservative’ but after having the Kinabaru, I reckon it’s nice to excite your taste buds once in awhile ;)
The Antoinette ($8) is a beautiful piece of art and it got me fooled. I didn’t expect that the white fluffy coating to be white chocolate! I love chocolate in all shapes, colors and sizes. Sweetness was just right and it certainly wasn’t cloying.
There is a very sexy centre hidden within the Antoinette and it’s wet, I mean molten mango puree. A very interesting pairing of white chocolate and mango. Yummeh.. I love it! :D
I can’t help but giggle upon realizing why this particular creation is named Little Red Riding Hood ($8.50). The shiny chocolate ganache is so gorgeous and I could almost see my own reflection staring down at it. The dark chocolate was bitter sweet and very rich. The raspberry filling within the chocolate mousse had a slight frozen, icy texture which made me shiver with delight.
I say, simplicity is best. You probably wouldn’t give Cafe Dumo ($8) a proper look in the beginning, especially when the other exquisite creations are fighting for your attention, all at the same time. When you finally decide to give it a second look, you realize that the Cafe Dumo can’t be all that simple and it lures you to it, to unravel its mystery and discover what truly lies within. Shall I tell you what I found? Go figure it out for yourself! :P Coffee lovers will find joy in savoring this. I still have a hard time deciding which is my favorite :( All I can say is that, it is a tie between Antoinette and Cafe Dumo!
This is the Little Drom Store that is housed within the same space as K Ki. Here, you find all sorts of bric-a-brac from trinkets to tea towels.
Those vintage polaroids certainly caught my eye! Pretty old school stuff :)
I will definitely go back and try the Strawberry Tart, Mont Blanc, Mona, and everything else that I can get my hands on :P Lastly, I would like to thank Stargirl for her time :)
