Name a better pairing than soft-centred cookies and ice cream  — we'll bet you can't. Luckily enough, Darling Square's latest dessert-centred arrival, Kuki, is serving up just that.

Residing in a primetime location, the hole-in-the-wall shopfront joins the ranks of viral dessert brands like Butter Boy and neighbouring local favourites Marrickville Pork Roll, Haidilao Hotpot and Kurtosh.

Behind this delightful new venture is a dynamic duo of non-related Duongs, Chris Duong and Dylan Duong. Back in 2017, the pair launched their very own food truck slinging an array of donuts and deep-fried ice cream from a hidden corner of Roselands before opening a flagship store in Strathfield in 2023.

Now the Duongs have turned their attention to dessert in a new deliciously rotund form: cookies, which when paired with a swirl of soft serve offers up a primo sweet treat. Think: a textural adventure and melt-in-the-mouth goodness all in one bite.

Take your pick from a range of six cookies, spanning from the classic brown butter choc chip to a chewy taro mochi, with mango, vanilla and Earl Grey among its five soft serve flavours.

If you're in need of a sweet pick-me-up, there are also scoops of tiramisu on offer, as well as a recently launched secret menu item — a Japanese cheesecake soft serve — available. What more could you need?

You'll find Kuki at 9/18 Steam Mill Lane in Darling Square, Haymarket, open from 12pm to 10pm from Tuesday to Sunday.
