As of late people's opinion on Pablo in Toronto is diverse. Some like it, others not (see my earlier post from August). I had the fortunate chance to visit Pablo in Omotesando today. This location has a cafe and a premium cafe. More info can be found in the video next to this entry. So... the biggest question is, is the Pablo cheese tart on Japan better? Let's see the results.
Rating: 🧀🧀🧀🧀/🥚🥚🥚🥚🥚 So... the tart still does not flow. I have the million dollar answer. I don't think it's suppose to. If you want the flowing tart then order the "nude" tart. Not sure why they call it that. It's not a naked tart. The crust is flakier than the Toronto version. The filling itself also has a subtle bland taste but seems to have an added depth of dairy or cream. Finally the gelatine on top. I had someone verify if there is taste to the gelatine. He said no. I was dumbfounded because the gelatine here tastes of orange. It complemented with the subtle cheese taste well. Overall I loved the cheese tart.
The other two, the matcha latte was really good and full of flavour. I have never tried the mini tart in Toronto. This one again has a subtle cheese taste. I might prefer the tart from the other competitor next door. Oh, and the prices here are cheaper than Toronto.
So there you have it. If you come to Tokyo or Osaka give them a try for yourself and add to the discussion. I might need to have words with the Pablo Toronto in the meantime.
