We were in the mall one afternoon and were starving after watching a 2-hour film. We saw the Japanese Cakes kiosk and decided to try their fare.
These cakes are basically hopia-looking pancake sandwiches. We bought the two bestsellers: Chezzy Melt and Leche Flan.
The Chezzy Melt (Php 12) was delicious. The melted cheese filling's saltiness complemented the buttery sweetness of the cake itself. It's good, very tasty.
The Leche Flan (Php 12) was OK too. The filling wasn't too sweet. The thing is though, it lacked the deep caramel flavor to be called "Leche Flan." The treat should be called "Custard."
All in all, our first bite at these Japanese Cakes were satisfactory. We won't mind going back to try some more.
Try these treats and judge for yourself.
Japanese Cakes is on the 2nd floor of SM City Masinag.
