Cheese Tarts


Cheese tarts are one of the most common Japanese sweets you can find. If you really want the tastiest one we recommend Pablo. Pablo is an Osaka-based cheese tart store that is slowly gaining popularity around the world. The lines are always long but that’s not enough to make us not want to buy one from mini stores around Japan!


The lines are always long but that’s not enough to make us not want to buy one from mini stores around Japan! If you’re not in Japan though don’t worry the Pablo brand is slowly making its way outside Japan, creating more and more stores around the world.

Hakuto Jelly


Available during summer, made with Hakuto peaches and mineral rich spring water. It tastes like a peach with a slight variation. It has a smooth texture and served cold, overall it feels premium and maybe because it is, it’s crazy expensive.



A Japanese confection based on sticky rice or rice flour sugar and soy sauce – its flavors are either citrus or walnuts, it can also be other fruits though. Making one of this confection takes a lot of effort.
