PABLO CHEESE TART INDONESIA - GANDARIA CITY JAKARTA (FIRST PREVIEW!)22.38.00
Got the privilege to come and had a brief preview of the store and the menu and I am personally thanking Kelvin (the owner of Indonesia branch) for the assistance.
...there are also seating areas located in front of the store for those who fancy dining in.
The take-out packaging
As for the price, the tarts will go for IDR 160k to IDR 180k-ish (regular) and IDR 220k (premium), it's double the Japan price but after all the imported ingredients, the flying cost to Japan and the accomodation and the shopping, this should makes sense. Aside from cheese tarts, they also have selections of Mini Cheese Tarts (IDR 35k each), Hokkaido Mille Crepes that are available in Plain, Chocolate and Matcha (IDR 35k each), Cheese Soft Serves (Matcha and Cheese - IDR 35k each), and PABLO Frute, their original blended drinks that came in five flavors (more below - IDR 55k each)
Freshly baked cheese tarts: Cheese, Matcha Cheese and Chocolate Cheese
It's like having a very soft Japanese style egg tart I must say.
Shiratama meaning Japanese dango balls and Azuki meaning red beans
Pretty much the same texture and consistency with the original one, and thank goodness for the imported ingredient as the matcha flavor DID NOT close to the jasmine green tea shit that's being overly used in town, the matcha was the rich and slightly bitter kind and works well with the sweet and salty cheese tart custard.
5 variants of Pablo's original blended drinks
(Classic Cheese Tart, Rich Berry Cheese, Rich Mango Cheese, Matcha Cheese with Shiratama and Special Chocolate)
In general, I like the perfect amount of sweetness of the drinks.
Special Chocolate and Matcha Shiratama
Matcha with Shiratama
Again, emphasizing the fact that the matcha did not appear to leave any trace of the dysfunctional local jasmine green tea flavoring which was great! The rich and bitter matcha works really well with the cheese flavor resulting this nice combo of sweet, salty and in fact, perfume.
The chocolate drink was the only one with no cheese in it, it's good and simple but nothing special.
This was my personal favorite! The overall flavor did not appear too cheesy and it's a genius idea that they used apricot sauce to balance the cheesy flavor hence it didn't overpower one another or being overly sweet.
