Pablo is branded as “The most famous cheese tarts from Japan”, and are also available in Kuala Lumpur at 1 Utama Shopping Centre Old Wing Level 2; Jakarta at Gandaria City Mall UG floor; and Bangkok at Siam Paragon.
The popular tart, like a piece of art, derived its name from artist Pablo Picasso.
In Japan, the modern-day desserts emphasize more on odorokashi, a play on words that means “desserts with an element of surprise”.
Pablo reflects that notion, and just like choosing the doneness of a steak, there is an option of “Medium or Rare” for the filling.
The latter is more molten and flowy, but is unavailable in outlets outside Japan. Sad!
The tarts come in different flavours such as the original cheese, matcha, chocolate and, for strawberry for the mini tarts.
Singaporeans should like the Matcha Cheese Tart – encased within the golden, flaky crust and filled to the brim is the matcha filling that eluded a fragrant tea aroma.
