Who can resist the soft, pillowy texture of a good cheesecake?

Not me, that's for sure.
But even if you can fight the tempting pull of the most classic cheesecake, I am 100% certain you won’t be able to say no to a Japanese cheesecake.

Imagine that soft silky smooth and creamy texture, bursting with the sweet, yet mellow flavourings of a regular cheesecake. Now, take that nice thought and make it one hundred times more fluffy, one hundred times more tasty, and one thousand times better.

Known for an ultra-fluffy texture and a cute jello-like wiggle, the Japanese cheesecake is a hard thing to turn down.

Yet, if you’re still turning your nose up at the undeniably sugary (but arguably one of the greatest deserts ever created) and sweet treat, then maybe you are looking for something that packs a more savoury punch.
I get it...it’s called cheesecake right? So where’s that cheesy flavour you were expecting?

If I’ve just described the way your tastebuds think to a tee, then you should check out this Rare Blue Cheesecake available from Yokohama’s Tokyu Square.

Made from gorgonzola blue cheese aged over more than 100 days, the Rare Blue Cheesecake takes the meaning of ‘cheesecake’ to a whole ‘nother level.

A good amount of research has gone into studying the perfect ratio of ingredients and baking, in order to achieve a cheesecake characterised by that classic rich taste you get with blue cheese and the smooth and melty texture of a cheesecake.

So how should you eat this decadent dish?
Combine it with fresh fruits or slices of prosciutto, add a splash of honey and enjoy it alongside a glass of your favourite wine. It’s a refined cheesecake, designed with refined palates in mind.

The unusual cheesecake is only available at Yokohama’s Tokyu Square for a limited time, so make sure to pick up your own asap to avoid any disappointment.
