Cheese..anything that has cheese in it is undeniably delicious and i'm lactose intolerant by the way but yet i would still torture myself to indulge in such cheesy goodness and suffer the consequences later lol! Anyway dairy based food is good for lactating mothers, and it does help me with my constipation problem (very well in fact lulz) so i have no complains about it since you can't have everything right?
I've seen this scenario during the gamers hideout sale a couple of months back so this isn't something new but i gotta stress this out to the typical unethical Malaysians who likes to HOARD free stuff. Please don't send you entire family to queue just so that you can hoard up to 10 pcs of tarts (if 10 family members are there) as there are other people who would like to try as well and one tart can easily feed up to 5 people!
There's 2 kinds of tarts, their signature LARGE tart which the diameter is roughly about 15cm so you'll need 5 mouths to finish the entire thing and it only lasts maximum of 3 days upon purchase, best store in fridge and bake before eating or if you are like me who is lazy, eating them cold is not an issue as well lol. Just one looks like those food porn with cream cheese oozing out while the other looks like your average frozen cheesecake XD
And the mini ones which is your average tart size (bite size la) that you can consume on the go which i honestly prefer more compared to the large one. Maybe it's because i am impatient as i have waited for Pablo Malaysia long enough that i couldn't wait to sink my teeth into their tarts haha!
Taste wise i would say it's not too overwhelming to the point where you feel sick from consuming too much cheese in one sitting, it's in fact more milky than cheesy. On my taste-bud scale it seems perfect for me but for those of you who are expecting pizza kind of cheesiness then sorry to disappoint you guys. However the pastry base for both tart sizes are different, the signature large tart comes with a flaky croissant like base that's best eaten fresh out of the oven when it's super crispy (taste meh when it's cold) while the mini tart has a biscuit like base that somewhat reminds me of those digestive biscuit base used for cheesecakes except this is more solid a.k.a crunchier.
Don't get me started on their imported cookies like their crunchy cheese sabrel (heavenly) and cheese tart (more like cheese coated oat balls) which i can finish the entire box in one sitting. It's seriously that good and it comes in nice packaging that would make great omiyage for friends and family in case you forgot to get them some while in Japan lol.
Price might be considered steep to some but you can't buy experience without a price :)
To me it's decent for imported goods and also it's convenient for me to satisfy my Japanese food cravings without having to hop on the next flight to Japan lol, that reminds me, gotta check out Family mart in Mid Valley some day.
