Hello! School is so busy as of late I don’t have time to sit down at a cafe and have to make do with takeaway sweets. But I’m not really complaining when I can walk away with some of the best cheese tarts in Japan.
Look at these two beautiesSo golden, so perfectly puffed, so photogenic even with a huge bite taken out of it. I’ve never gushed this much about a mound of baked cheese. And each of them was just a little over ¥200! Just being easy on the wallet alone is enough to make me buy more than one (I ended up with three).
I passed by the store in Jiyugaoka; it’s a cute space but also grey and nondescript—nothing to distract from the hundreds of cheese tarts filling the up the counter. How they all look so flawless?
Okay, it might have something to do with them being made by machines, but it’s so satisfying watching that little steel arm dollop piles of cheese and cream into the tart crusts. And it’s an excellent way of passing the time if you’re stuck waiting in the queue, which is honestly more than likely to happen. People just love these cheese tarts! (and so do I, which is why I willingly joined said queue)
I’d been wanting to try BAKE’s cheese tarts since forever, and I finally got to go with my friend when we were in the neighbourhoodIt was as good as all the hype and Instagram pictures made it out to be, so that’s one craving fulfilled.
