Kki Sweets is a Japanese inspired patisserie that offers up delectable cakes & desserts. The place was previously situated at Ann Siang Hill, but have recently relocated to SOTA, School of the Arts. You’ll be able to find both Kki Sweets & its partner, The Little Drom Store at this new, much bigger location.

Kki Sweets is actually situated INSIDE SOTA, which came as a surprise to me when I found out that SOTA had more food establishments to offer. The area is somewhat secluded from the public as you would have to walk up the stairs leading into the school. (Which, unless you have a reason to, you probably would just walk past the school instead.)

The first thing that you would notice about Kki is how clean & sleek the place is. Perfection, that is what Kki Sweets is all about, a quality that also adheres to their desserts. The entire space seems be have Japanese inspired design elements, with light wooden furniture & shelves displaying Japanese ceramics. The design of the patisserie is kept very simple yet modern.

Food
As mentioned earlier, Kki Sweets offers delectable Japanese inspired lil’ cakes. You can tell a lot of thought & effort went into each and every cake that they have, with a combination of unique flavours & lovely aesthetic shapes that differs from each other. They take pride in their desserts as well, with Delphine (co-owner of Kki), informing me to consume the cakes as soon as possible when served. (I mentioned that I was going to have a photography session with them first.) They do also offer some slight drink selections, however I did not manage to try any during my visit. Perhaps another time.

Prices for Kki’s cakes are actually quite high end, with each cake hovering around the 8 dollar mark. If you dine-in, there is a 10% service charge as well.

Antoinette - White Chocolate Mousse with Mango ($8.80) Nao - Strawberry Mousse with Pistachio ($9.80) You can't deny how pleasing Kki Sweets' desserts look to the eye. Each cake almost looks too good to eat/destroy.

 I've seen the "Nao" on quite a few reviews & hence wanted to try it as well. It was really really good. What I love about the cakes here at Kki, is how soft they are. They are practically more mousse than cake, which is exactly to my palate. The Nao had a lovely hint of pistachio inside.

Antoinette was a lock for me once I saw the words "White Chocolate". I'm a huge fan of anything white chocolate. The combination of it with mango was divine, my friends who tried it really liked it as well.

Tiramisu - Mascarpone Cheese Mousse with Kahlua ($9.80) Onigiri - Basil Milk Chocolate Mousse with Blood Orange ($9) I've read some recommendations regarding their Tiramisu & hence I decided to give it a try as well. One taste of it & it was like I died and went to Heaven. Pretty much the best Tiramisu I've ever had the chance to taste.  The Onigiri attracted me due to its shape, not to mention one of my friends wanted something chocolate. The taste was quite unique, as it had a slight sourness due to the blood orange. It took some getting used to, but it ended up being a favourite between two of my friends.

Cafe Duomo - Milk Chocolate Coffee Mousse ($9.80) I just couldn't pass up trying another after the initial four. I was spoilt for choice. My friend suggested we try the Cafe Duomo next. It was also as good as the rest, great taste of coffee. Coffee lovers, this is for you.

Worth A Visit/Revisit?
If you have not heard of Kki Sweets or tried them before, I definitely recommend you do, at least once. The cakes here are pretty perfect in every way, delectable taste, pretty face. The only bad taste that lingered in my mouth was the price. (You’ll probably be surprised when you see the size of the cakes in comparison.) Of course, one might argue that you’re paying for quality & that I can agree on. I would go back again to try other cakes, but perhaps I won’t be so crazy this time & only order one.
