BAKE Cheese Tart – Westgate Singapore Basement 2

BAKE Cheese Tart - Westgate Singapore Basement 2

Wah. Westgate getting more and more happening.

Known for having a cluster of Japanese shops such as ISETAN, Tokyu Hands and Japanese restaurants and cafes such as Kinoshita BBQ Hot Pot, Kushiya Yakitori, Tsukada Nojo, Sushi Express and CoCo ICHIBANYA… popular Japanese Cheese BAKE Tart Hokkaido has joined them at #B2-04 near Isetan.

BAKE currently has a total of 23 stores, 14 in Japan and 9 in the rest of Asia including Hong Kong, Seoul and Bangkok.

These tarts from Japan have a crumbly exterior, fluffy inner texture, and cheesy warm soft filling – making them an instant hit.

There was once a 2-hour constant queue at ION Orchard, but you can get them quite ‘easily’ for now – depending on the hour you go to.

Even in Hong Kong and Bangkok where the brand opened to extreme lines, you can almost just grab and go for its shops at Central World and EmQuartier now.

BAKE Cheese Tart has opened at Westgate Basement 2 near ISETAN on 17th October (Monday).

In anticipated for the long queue, the line will start from the BAKE Cheese Tart kiosk, continued at the entrance right outside B2 Carpark, and is likely to go further into the carpark.

Heat alert: bring portable fan, otherwise literally “BAKE”.

Here are 10 things about Bake Cheese Tart
1. 3 different types of cream cheese are used to create the cheese mousse – Hakodate cheese for mild flavour, Betsukai cheese for full-bodied taste, and French cheese for a saltier balance.

2. The tart pastry is twice-baked, once just as cookies, then all over again with the cheese mousse on top to create a twice-baked pastry.

3. These tarts were originally sold as chilled blueberry cheese tarts.

4. BAKE Cheese Tart started in July 2011 in Kinotoya Hokkaido.

5. Price in Singapore – $3.50 per tart, $19.50 for box of six tarts.

6. BAKE currently has a total of 23 stores – 14 in Japan, 9 in the rest of Asia including Hong Kong, Seoul and Bangkok.

7. Singapore’ Westgate branch is the 10th store outside Japan.

8. The tarts sold in Singapore are flown in from Japan once every two weeks, and baked in-house before sale.

9. If you are buying the tarts home, you can reheat it by using a toaster oven (nope, microwave doesn’t really work that well). They last well about 2-3 days in the fridge.

10. One way to eat the tart is like an “ice cream” after putting it in the freezer.
