My first time trying BAKE CHEESE TART was at their Jiyugaoka store in Tokyo. I spotted the queue before I saw the store and decided to join in to see what the fuss was about.
After eating their cheese tart, I finally understood why the Japanese loved their tarts.
Using only the freshest ingredients, the branch here in Singapore will follow the exact recipe in Japan where the cheese mousse is created by blending three different types of cream cheese together – two from Hokkaido and one from France.
Their tart pastry goes through a two-step process where the tart shells are baked first, then with the cheese mousse piped in, they go into the oven again.
BAKE currently has a total of 13 stores, nine stores in Japan and four stores in the rest of Asia including Hong Kong, Seoul and Bangkok. Singapore will be the fifth store outside Japan.
BAKE CHEESE TART’s freshly baked cheese tarts will be available at ION Orchard, #B4-33, 2 Orchard Turn Singapore starting 29 April 2016. Each cheese tart will sell for $3.50, and customers can buy six at $19.50.
