John King Japanese Baked Cheese Tart Review
The Japanese baked cheese tart war is starting now in Kuala Lumpur. After the entrance of Hong Kong’s Tokyo Secret, comes the local brand Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart and also the opening of Pablo, Japan number one baked cheese tart. Now, joining the bandwagon is egg tart seller John King.
John King is originated from Hong Kong selling their own recipe egg tarts and they have quite a number of outlets in Kuala Lumpur.
We were having our family day in Da Men Subang and noticed that John King is selling their version of Japanese soft baked cheese tart, why not give it a try?
Selling at RM 4.90 a piece like Hokkaido Cheese Tart, the poster stated that the tart comes with buttery crust with lava ooze centre (the cheese filling).
They baked the cheese tarts three times a day, 12pm, 3pm and 7pm. We bought the tart around 7.30pm and it left two.
The size of the baked cheese tart is the same as their egg tart and the top layer is wrinkled. The poster claimed they use Imported premium cheese for the filling but somehow it wrinkled.
The crust is buttery fragrant but the filling is well didn’t live up to the expectation. It is definitely lacking of the Imported Premium Cheese we were expecting and the size is rather small compare to their competitors. Thus, there was no ooze centre or melting cheese that you would expect. The crust is too thick too.
Well, it was the baker’s bad day or we were just pure unlucky but the ones we had didn’t impress at all. Of course, this is based on our own opinion and food tasting differs from one to another. The taste we like might differs from one to another so this is purely our own opinion on the Japanese soft baked cheese tarts we purchased.
We hope to hear from you if you had the Japanese baked cheese tart from John King too. The Japanese baked soft cheese tart is priced at RM 4.90 each, four pieces at RM 18 and six pieces at RM 26. For more info, visit their Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/johnkingmalaysia/
