Kakawa doesn’t have the flamboyance of Sydney’s other dessert shops. Instead it has finesse and offers pure quality. The bon bons balance creative flavours (calamansi lime, caramelised olive, tonka bean) with impeccable technique. Ice-cream sandwiches have an intense chocolate flavour while maintaining strong hints of their buddy flavours (from matcha and caramelised black sesame, to raspberry or simple honeycomb). Kakawa’s pure couverture chocolate range has all the regional inflections and floral complexities good chocolate should.
