Having a craving for funnel cake in this cold winter weather can be hard to satisfy when there are no fairs running and amusement parks are closed. Don’t worry because Kiki’s Funnel Cakes is just the place to go to. Located in our very own Bramalea City Center, don’t let the name fool you. They don’t just sell funnel cake, but a variety of other yummy fair foods that can satisfy your cravings at any time of the year.
I asked the kind gentleman at the cash register what was their best selling and yummiest item on their menu. He suggested their signature funnel cake with soft serve ice cream and strawberries, but unfortunately, they were out of strawberries, so I opted for one with ice cream and caramel sauce.
It was the best funnel cake I’ve ever tasted in my entire life. It was perfect: crispy on the outside and soft and moist on the inside. The wait time was short considering it was close to closing time. The portion size was fairly big and could be shared between two or even three people.
Next up, I tried the deep fried Oreos. These were just okay. They felt a bit too moist and were missing that cookie crunch. All I could taste was the Oreo cookie cream. The portion size was 4 deep fried Oreo cookies for just under $5.00 with taxes.
Then, I tried the deep fried Twix bar, and boy was this ever delicious. I’m not a huge fan of the Twix bar, thus I was hesitant but OMG did this fried delicacy blow my taste buds away. It was the perfect combination of warm and gooey, with a slight crunch, and yet tasted even better than a Twix bar.
After trying all the sweet yummy desserts, I noticed the deep fried pickles! Yes you read it right, pickles. Everyone knows that no matter what, if you fry it, it will taste good, but PICKLES? My adventurous self just had to try it and holy smokes, this was an amazing fried food combination. It had a perfect pickle crunch yet was still warm with a dash of a curry-like spice. It was delicious and all the flavours complimented each other very well. Even if you’re not a fan of pickles, I would recommend trying it at least once.
Lastly, I tasted the tornado potato, deep fried in batter and topped with sour cream and chives. The outside had a slight crunch to it almost like a potato chip, yet it was moist and soft on the inside. The portion size was quite big and could be shared among 2-3 people. It tasted almost like a giant fried potato pakora on a sticks.
Over all I would recommend Kiki’s Funnel Cakes in Brampton to everyone I meet. Since it’s located in the mall, seating is limited during peak hours and wait times may be long. But none the less, their food tastes amazing and has lived up to my foodie taste buds. Definitely check this place out.
