[Taipei] BAKE Cheese Tart needs little introduction.
The BAKE Cheese Tart in Taipei is located at Shin Kong Mitsukoshi Nanxi Store Three 新光三越南西三館店, at Level 1. (Zhongshan MRT Station)
Queues were long when BAKE Cheese Tart was first launched in Taipei, but very manageable after the hype came down.
One tart goes for NT$70 (SGD$3.20, USD$2.25), while a box of 6 is priced at NT$390 (SGD$14.70, USD$10.30).
For a first timer, I can suggest buying at least two. One to experience the crispy crust, creamy warm oozing interior.
The other option is to chill the tart in the fridge first, and feel like you have having cheesy ice cream in a tart.
What I really want to highlight here is BAKE Cheese Tart’s Softcream which is not commonly found elsewhere.
Price is at NT$120 (SGD$5.50, USD$3.90).
Perhaps it was because I was enjoying this during spring time, and Taipei was experiencing one of its coldest week in year, the sensation of having a harder-to-melt softserve in a cool fuzzy weather was satisfyingly-delightful.
The twirl was tall, beautiful and fat (much better than many softserve shops elsewhere). While you might feel the cone would be pricey, it was considered generous in the serving.
Its texture was pleasurably smooth-milky-fat, and I think there would be traces of cream-cheese within as the soft serve got heavy within a few bites.
I suspect this could be rather fattening. Share it with a friend.
