Keki Modern Cakes

From faraway lands came the idea for Keki Modern Cakes.  Founders Moul Kim and Lawrence Wai travelled all over Asia, following the flavors of cakes, tarts and more. Hopping from one bakery window to the next, they found unique desserts everywhere they went. Somewhere between airports and across continents, they looked at one another and knew they had to share the feeling of carefree tasting and travelling with the rest of the world. Moul and Lawrence recruited Executive Chef Kevin Kim, who hails from the likes of Per Se and Bouchon to capture fun with desserts. With Chef Kim on board, the three set out on a pilgrimage to local farms and ranges in search of likeminded partners. They knew the secret to other-worldly flavor was to keep things simple, pure, and local: fresh ingredients, cage-free, eggs, grass-fed dairy. Keki Modern Cakes is located at 79 Mott St. and Canal St. (646) 863-2094
