Brands that made a name for themselves are storming to our sunny shore. We have welcomed Mr Churros from Korea, BAKE Cheese Tart from Japan, just to name a few and now we are receiving LE Castella 樂古早味蛋糕 to the heartland mall, Tampines One. At about the same period, April’s Bakery from Thailand arrived at Tampines vicinity too.
LE CastellaSingapore outlet is for takeaway only, It has a large counter cum working deck with kitchen behind the counter. Interestingly, though baking was hidden behind the wall while slicing was performed at the counter. Boxes are lined readily for packing whenever the cakes are sliced.
A point to note to all who are going down to purchase the cake. There are 3 order time slot throughout the day, at 11am, 4pm and last order is 7pm. Service crew will advise the customer on the collection time. Leave your name and order with them. Each customer is limited to 2 boxes. Once the collection slots are filled, they will close the order for the time slot.
2 flavours are available at LE Castella Singapore, Original ($9.90) and Cheese ($11.90). I estimated each cake to be about 20cm by 15cm. I didn’t expect that they are selling the cake in such as huge slab. Each cake was signed with the word “Le” in Chinese.
Between the 2 flavours, I got the Cheese. Each slab was placed nicely in the rustic brown-paper box.
If you got the cheese one, you will find the cheese sandwiched between the slab.
Personally, I find the texture similar to the Japanese Cheesecake. Lightly sweeten and pillowy soft. It is great to go along with a cup of light tea. The cheese was far too salty and sharp for the sponge cake.
After trying, I am not too sure what’s the craze is all about since the Japanese Cheesecake didn’t take off in Singapore. Wondering if LE Castella Singapore will get a strong foothold in the long run. Let’s wait and see.
