When it comes to entertaining, there’s never a wrong place or a wrong time for an elegant assembly of cheeses. As a host or a gracious potluck party guest, nothing says “I also went to private school” quite like an impressive array of fromage; from soft goat cheese paired with a host of different jams, chunky cheddars with the right kind of charcuterie, dried figs, chorizo with your manchego, frites with your camembert? The holiday Feta is all Gouda if you know what you’re doing.
But honestly, who still has the time? Right when you’re done googling cheese monger 101, 2017 would have already come and gone.
Our suggestion? One of Japan’s more recognized confectionaries LeTAO finally makes its way to Manila. Now available for a limited time only pop-up (now at Greenbelt 5 and Uptown Mall BGC) and is ready to serve their signature best-selling two-layer cheesecake. It’s not exactly raclette or an all-star cheese board from Santi’s but you know you’re pressed for DIY time—skip the deli and go straight for this deliciously indulgent delicacy. It’s twice the dairy in a double layer of melt-in-your-mouth, velvet creamy goodness.
Founded in 1996 and based in Hokkaido, LeTAO is celebrated around the globe for their delicate and silken cheesecakes. The double fromage cheesecake is considered to be the peak of their product line, a culinary feat made with high quality mascarpone from Italy for its upper layer; a creamy smooth no-bake cheesecake, paired with the baked lower layer chiffon.
LeTAO Cheesecake counts Manila as its latest international location (outside of Seoul, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan of course) — but only available for a limited-time pop-up. If I were you, I’d call right now to reserve a box or two because we’ve heard it on good authority that these cheesecakes are selling out fast. Don’t wait, shop now. –Martin Yambao
LeTAO is now open in Greenbelt 5 and Uptown Mall BGC.
