Being from Vancouver, we are not usually the first (or even the second) to welcome the arrival of international chains like Pablo, famous for their cheesetarts. Now that I’m in Sydney I get super excited every time I see something that Vancouver doesn’t have. Go figure. On this particular day, I decided to hunt down Pablo for some cheesetarts while I was in the CBD (Central Business District).
The store front is quite small and there is no seating inside. They have 4 different flavours of mini cheesetarts available and some larger ones as well.
I can never get enough of matcha flavoured desserts so I had to order the Matcha Mini Cheesetart ($4.50). It was pretty small and I wouldn’t be spending money on cheesetarts all the time but this was a treat. The pastry tart was very buttery and delicate. It did fall apart easily and wasn’t that firm. But it was not a bad thing.
I expected the inside of the cheesetart to be thicker in consistency but it was actually extremely light and airy. You can even see air bubbles in the photo. It wasn’t exactly gushing out but it probably would’ve been if it was hot? The filling also didn’t have a heavy cheese flavour to it. It just felt very delicate and left me wanting more. I am certain I can eat a large one all by myself!
Next stop, time to try Hokkaido Cheese Tarts for comparison!
