The cinnamon fan in me rejoiced as I devoured this scoop of ice cream - cinnamon and maple is such a heavenly combination. If the waffles were a bit more fluffy and soft, it would’ve made this perfect as the waffles were more towards a crispy texture and could not really absorb the ice cream very well.

This is pretty worth it with the Beyond 1-for-1 deal. I liked the interior of the cafe, it was simple and clean.

Think polo bun with decadent salted egg custard, oozing out with every bite. Delicious! Even though the golden custard was everywhere (yes we were quite the messy eaters), it was surprisingly smooth and creamy both in taste and texture - not overwhelming in the slightest.

Would recommend to try if you’re around the area. I visited the shop at lunchtime on a weekday and even though there was no queue, there was about a 10 minute wait for them buns to be freshly baked!

Not too bad of an entremet, quite pleasant tasting, but unfortunately did not match our expectations - it tasted like a very ordinary apple crumble. I couldn’t really taste the mint glaze or the cinnamon in the crumble, as the apple pieces in the pastry were way too overwhelming in taste, overpowering other components too such as the caramel apple cremeux, green apple mousse and the almond sponge. Which is honestly quite a pity because it sounds like an amazing combination of ingredients!

Presentation wise - it’s very pretty and cute. I really liked the idea of a “poison apple” being represented by the different parts of this pastry! I’ll probably give their other pastries a go next time.

Waffles were standard, though I think I personally would’ve preferred it much thicker and fluffier - they were more towards the thin and crispy kind. The dark gianduia chocolate ice cream was not too bad, and the marshmallows on the side was a sweet addition. This is pretty worth it with the Beyond 1-for-1 deal.

They told us this was on the house (fortunately for us it really was). Kueh was not too bad, not too sweet.

Overall, I didn’t really have a good experience here due to the many hidden charges that were just served without our knowledge of their costs. I know that Chinese restaurants may do this, but there was just too many - crackers on the table, water served per person, and then for the rice which we asked only for 2 servings, and then they charged us for 3 (we were 3 people). When we asked them about it, they wouldn’t budge or make any negotiations.

Even after using the 1-for-1 Burpple Beyond deal, it was still really expensive. I wouldn’t come back here again. Food was okay but honestly not worth the extravagant prices for such small servings.

The Pecan tart was earthily fragrant and actually not really sweet at all, which was a pleasant surprise. The Lemon Meringue tart, their signature, really hits you with its fruity sourness. I found the base of the lemon meringue tart a little too crumbly which made it slightly difficult to eat.

Overall, a pretty good buy for the price, though the tarts are slightly smaller than average.

There wasn’t much inside this dessert, and the coconut milk was quite watery. Not the best and I would recommend you not to have this.

A standard bowl of chendol, I wish there could be more ingredients though.

Pretty alright rice cake - best to steam or microwave it so that it’s warm and fluffy. Tastes like tutu kueh to be honest. I couldn’t really taste the osmanthus unfortunately, likely because the coconut taste was overpowering.

Still overall an okay pastry to try, okay-ish price with the deal. Not much of a queue when I visited on a Saturday afternoon.

I personally quite enjoyed the White Choco Speculoos - although I couldn’t really taste the Speculoos at all, the white chocolate ice cream was pretty on point. Tasted exactly like a good old school white chocolate bar, and wasn’t too sweet. There aren’t many places that sell white chocolate ice cream, so I was thankful for this.

The Valrhona Chocolate was average, could be much richer I think.

Pretty worth it with the 1-for-1 deal. We visited on a Saturday evening and there was quite a queue! There aren’t seats in the shop itself but there’re plenty of public seats and tables in the Hub.

I loved the combination of black sesame and yuzu, though the yuzu was quite overpowering and prevented my uncultured tastebuds from tasting any matcha bits.

And I almost couldn’t bear to eat this one! This dessert is definitely a work of art. Coming to Kki Sweets is definitely a unique dining experience - it’s definitely worth the hassle to reserve and pre-order.

Cheese pancakes were chewy, similar to a mochi texture - they reminded me of our fried nian gao or tapioca! The saltiness of the cheese really went well with the sweetness of the condensed milk on the side, which you dip the pancakes in. We liked this unique dessert, I was happy we tried it.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon and it was really packed! Fortunately we made a reservation - and you should too, to avoid waiting. Ambience of the place was super cozy, with Russian posters everywhere. Overall a pleasant dining experience!
