LeTAO – Impressive Cheesecakes from Gorgeous Hokkaido
LeTAO’s has finally opened in Singapore! With many LeTAO branches all over Hokkaido, many travellers to the northern island might have caught a glimpse of this highly-acclaimed confectionary. It all started at the Meruhen intersection, where the first LeTAO was built at Otaru’s foremost tourist centre.
Say Cheese to the Double Fromage ($28) – frozen or chilled! Picture a creamy, milky no-bake chesecake, elegantly layered above a rich cheesecake. I know some of you might be turned off by the impression of a jelat cheesecake, but no no no, you’re absolutely wrong. I am not a major cheesecake fan, but I’m now a convert. LeTAO has changed my life. No more second-thoughts – this is one of the best air-flown Japanese cheesecakes you can ever treat yourself to.
The Jersey Milk Roll ($19) is a basic swiss roll mastered to perfection. Don’t underestimate this humble-looking cylindrical cake. Premium whipped cream is rolled up in a whole sheet of sponge cake. It sounds simple, yeah? However, one bite is all it takes to remind me that the high quality present in Japan’s confectioneries is something that nobody can easily replicate. While the flavours aren’t complicated, the result is a light milk roll that’s good for all ages.
Chocolate cookies no more, the Premier Maalu ($10 for 4 pieces, $19 for 8 pieces) could be your next chocolate addiction. Crushed thin-crepes called feuillantine is mixed together with premier Maalu “chocolat au lait” to create a crunchy yet chewy texture. In addition, small-puffed wheat and 3 types of almonds are added to make this bite-sized snack extra special.
When I say everything looks amazing, I really mean EVERYTHING. I believe you could just blindly pick anything from the menu and it would still taste amazing. Thank you LeTAO, you truly make the world a better place.
