Kinfolk-style cafe at Pasir Panjang has burnt cheesecake, Milo panna cotta & salted egg lava cake

Worth checking out for their cheesecake alone.

The Kins’ is a cafe in the West, located at a condominium right next to Pasir Panjang MRT station (you won’t have to get past security, though).

The 40-seater Kinfolk-style cafe has both indoor and outdoor spaces.

The desserts, however, stood out from the brunch items.

We tried four of them.

1. Kins’ Burnt Cheesecake (S$9)

A cross between the classic Japanese cheesecake and no-bake cheesecake, the Kins’ Burnt Cheesecake was the highlight of our trip to the cafe.

Served with a spoonful of sweetened cream, the cheesecake had a creamy, gooey centre sandwiched between two light and fluffy layers, and tasted every bit as delicious as it looked.

However, we recommend consuming the cheesecake fast as it tends to get runny if left untouched for too long.

2. Milo Panna Cotta (S$7)

Another noteworthy dessert was the Milo Panna Cotta, which boasts a simple but tasty combination of flavours.

With a smooth, melt-in-your-mouth kind of texture, this is a definite must-try for fans of milo, panna cotta, or both.

3. Salted Yolk Chocolate “LAVA” Cake (S$12)

At the price point of S$12, we were expecting this lava cake to blow our minds.

We ended up being disappointed, as the salted yolk “lava” did not ooze out of the cake when cut, and was rather heavy on the palate.

The salted egg and chocolate were disparate flavours, sadly.

4. Thai Tee Brulee (S$8)

Like the Salted Yolk Chocolate Lava Cake, the Thai Tee Brulee was a tad rubbery and had little of that familiar, comforting taste its beverage counterpart has.

Here’s their full menu if you wish to try other items besides desserts:
