Keki Modern Cakes

Jiggly Japanese Cheesecake Sensation

Lines went out the door of Keki’s tiny Chinatown storefront the week the bakery opened—all for a taste and perhaps a glimpse of the jiggly sensation that has taken social media by storm. Opened by Lawrence Wai with Per Se and Nobu alum Kevin Kim as executive chef, Keki turns out fresh cheese cakes, tarts and sponge cakes every 20 minutes (the store’s aroma is incredible!). Inspired by traditional Japanese and Taiwanese desserts, Keki’s cakes have a subtle sweetness, using only half the amount of sugar than regular cheesecakes. While their bouncy cheesecake has taken the internet by storm, their fancy NY-style cheesecakes are some of the best we’ve ever had.

Keki’s famous bouncy is not your typical cheesecake. It’s soft, airy and fluffy, while still giving you that familiar tangy flavor and silky, creamy finish. It’s something your fork will keep reaching for. And if that hasn’t gotten your tastebuds going, look up a jiggly cheesecake video. You’ll see what we mean.

We're not the only ones who love them!
