BAKE CHEESE TART has arrived Osaka for the first time!
“BAKE CHEESE TART” is a freshly baked cheese tart specialty shop from Hokkaido which has also become popular in the Kanto region. Today, they opened at the Hanshin Department Store Umeda Main Store, so I went there to cover the event!
The shop occupies a section in the sweets corner at the basement of the Hanshin Department Store Umeda Main Store.
The store facade design is a very eye-catching yellow.
The Hanshin Department Store Umeda Main Store opens at 10:00 a.m. and I went there a little past this time, but when I arrived, there was already a long queue.
The queue seemed like it would reach the next shop but it didn’t. However, I was surprised to learn that there was a queue outside the department store for the people waiting to line up inside!
The shop has become more known in Hokkaido and Kanto, so there were already over 30 people waiting in line right after it opened.
There were also two TV channels recording footage for their own coverage.
It seems the cheese tarts are most delicious after letting them cool down for 30 minutes after they’re taken out of the oven.
The prices of interest are ¥200 per piece (tax-exclusive), and ¥1150 for six pieces (tax-exclusive).
This time, I had the special chance to taste a sample right at the store front.
The cheese bulges on top of the firm tart.
This cheese is a blend of two types of cheese from Hokkaido and one from France.
Time to take a bite while the tart is still slightly warm.
The tart is crunchier than I imagined. Within it is the smooth and creamy texture of the cream cheese and these two are a perfect match.
The cheese’s flavor, richness, saltiness, and sourness are perfectly balanced with each other. The taste leaves you wanting to eat more and more of it.
The twice-baked tart pastry has a wonderful fragrance to it which serves as an accent to bring out the flavor of the cheese.
Getting this quality for only ¥200 each is surely a bargain.
Selling 4 million pieces a year in Hokkaido and 400,000 pieces a month in Kanto is very understandable for such a delicious cheese tart.
That was very delicious. I had a wonderful time!
BAKE CHEESE TART twice-bakes their tarts within the Hanshin Department Store Umeda Main Store premises. Along with all the effort put into it, this is a very satisfying cheese tart considering both its taste and its price.
・To people who love cheese tarts
・To people who love cheesecakes
・To people looking for sweets which can also be taken home as gifts
I recommend you try BAKE CHEESE TART which opened at the Hanshin Department Store Umeda Main Store.
