There are actually several kinds of “cheesecakes”, such as baked or no-bake cheesecakes. This article focuses on the type that melts as soon as you put it in your mouth! Below are the cheesecakes that you have to try when visiting Osaka.
1. PABLO's Cheese Tarts
PABLO is a store with many branches that specializes in cheese tarts that can be freshly baked according to how well done you want your tart. Out of the three varieties that they offer, the PABLO Cheese Tart (850 JPY (incl. tax)) is the one that will let you enjoy that “fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth” texture. It is an exquisitely fluffy tart that’s filled with cheese cream, has a crunchy crust, and is topped with apricot jam. This is the medium grade of well-done cheese tart that was carefully baked at their atelier.
You can also choose to go with the PABLO Nude (800 JPY (incl. tax)) that has a melty, no-bake texture, or the well-done PABLO Rich (1,600 JPY (incl. tax)) that has a luxurious taste and soft texture. Take-out is only available if you buy a whole cheese tart. At the stores attached to the cafe (Dotonbori, Shinsaibashi OPA Kireikan, and Umeda HEP FIVE branches), you can have a slice of PABLO Cheese Tart with a drink for just a single coin (500 JPY (incl. tax)).
