I love cheese and in fact anything with cheese but I’m not so crazy about it that I will just join a long queue for it. When hubby and I stumbled upon BAKE Cheese Tart in Siam Center which is their latest outlet to open after the ones in EmQuartier, Central World and Central Ladprao, we decided to go for it since there wasn’t a queue or rather, no one else was buying the tarts. Well, it was also because I saw the staff laying out trays of fresh-from-the-oven tarts on the counter and that enticing smell just took my breath away. ☺️

Not very evenly baked eh. I like my cheese tarts to be a bit more browned on the top. 😆
The cheese tart is priced at 80 baht (approx. S$3.20) per piece. Comparing with moo ping (grilled pork skewer) that’s only 10 baht per stick or even a jumbo cup of Thai Iced Green Tea that’s only 35 baht, this is definitely considered pricey by local standards for a small tart like this. Perhaps that was why we didn’t see many people (especially the locals) patronising the shop.
Despite the price, this was still a satisfying treat though I still very much prefer the cheese tart from Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart. This filling was more mousse-like and less molten. And the cheese flavour wasn’t as robust as I wished it would be. I did like the crust though which was a cross between a crumbly shortcrust pastry and a slightly firm biscuit.
After trying BAKE Cheese Tart, it seemed like it hadn’t been much of a loss for not jumping onto the bandwagon immediately when BAKE was launched in Singapore last year. I guess it all depends on how cheesy you like the filling to be and whether you prefer a more mousse-like filling or a more rich, creamy and molten one.
BAKE cheese tart is good but not wow enough to have me coming back for more.
Which is your favourite cheese tart?
