|Japanese Cheesecake from Cake-Ya Bakery|
This post reviews several items I've tasted from various visits. I have had a good experience with the majority of their food. There are still many more goods I have yet to try.
The picture above is of their cheesecake. Japanese cheesecake is completely different from the traditional New York cheesecake. I shall describe it as the child produced from a perfect marriage between the New York cheesecake and a chiffon cake. Light and fluffy in texture but with a definite cheese-y taste. Years ago, when I tried a Japanese cheesecake for the first time, I was deeply disappointed to the lack of cheese. Probably due to the fact it was from T&T Supermarket and they totally skimped out on the cream cheese. I mean, if you're going to eat a dessert, it should be heavy and satisfy your craving for dessert. Due to this preference of mine, I decided I liked New York cheesecake more. Cake-Ya's Japanese cheesecake is made with true ingredients and is delicious enough to change me from disliking Japanese cheesecake to dreaming about it.

I was eager to get my hands on the black sesame flavour. My hopes weren't very high for a 4pm visit on a Sunday, but the lady said they had still had some in the back. I guess they don't constantly re-stock their display fridge. So tip #2, even if you don't see it in the display, ask if they have the item in the kitchen storage. The black sesame taste is there, not overpowering, but there. A pretty good choice if you're unsure of which flavour to eat.
The next flavour I bought this trip was the green tea one. I don't remember if they labeled it as 'green tea' or 'matcha', but if it's matcha, they hit the target right on! I really enjoyed the matcha flavour of this cream caramel. It's strong and aromatic but not overly sweet. Would be a solid choice of cream caramel to eat. This is one of my favourites!
I noticed at the bottom of the sticker the cream caramels are made in Coquitlam by another company. They are also sold at other Japanese retail so I believe Cake-Ya also imports them as well. Not made in house, but still fresh and delicious!
