K-Ki at Ann Siang Hill is hands-down the "Singapore Find of the Year" for me. For someone who does not have the strongest preference for overly rich or spongy cakes, the little treats from K-Ki are like gifts from heaven. I'm sure you must have read about my escapades in this delightful cake sanctuary (for the 99% of you who haven't, go on ahead and read this!) and how much I simply love the cakes here. I do know of some who have hesitated to pay a visit to K-Ki because they "want to wait for the hype to die down", and all I can say is - keep waiting, it's not going to be anytime soon!
The pretty sister to the bright Kinabaru, Emily continues to delight with an amazing lightness that's really quite magical. The hint of lemon and champagne (yes, champagne~) matches the very sweet wild strawberry layer in the middle. Lovely.
I have a personal preference for smoother Tiramisus, so I was naturally biased towards K-Ki's Tiramisu. While its owners were initially concerned that this Italian icon may not have fitted into their Japanese-French theme, I'm glad a decision was made to roll it out anyway because honey, it's so gooood. Admittedly pricey for its size, eating it bit by bit was an experience in itself as you go through the layer of mousse and venture closer to the liqueur-soaked ladyfinger centre. So light it's almost floating.
I made sure I had space for one more, and ventured for the Soufflé Cheesecake. I'm pleased to announce that I'm liking this as well because of its lightness and oh-so-smooth texture. Of course, this may not really match up to its other friends on display since it does not tease with a bevy of flavours, but it did go very well with the Nespresso Latte that I was having.
K-Ki is ♥.
$9 for the Emily
