You know the cherry blossom season is around the corner when cherry blossom-inspired makeup products, food and beverages are here! BreadTalk’s new Japanese-inspired range, ‘Oishii Japan’, will make you feel as if you’re in the land of cherry blossoms with its variety of sweet and savoury buns and beautifully crafted cakes.
If you want a slightly spicy kick, try Kare~Oishii, which combines Japanese curry with pork for a flavourful bun. The Edamame Chiizu’s appearance may be reminiscent of an onigiri (a Japanese rice ball), but don’t be fooled — instead of rice, this bun contains edamame beans and cheddar cheese in a natural yeast toast bread. For a sandwich with a twist, go for the Teriyaki Chicken Sandwich which consists of shredded cabbage and tender pieces of chicken thigh glazed in teriyaki sauce sandwiched between brioche bread.
Konni’Chikuwa’ features chikuwa (a Japanese fishcake) on a crispy Danish pastry base, topped with tuna and cheddar cheese for a savoury delight. The corn-looking ‘Corn’banwa has a creamy custard infused with Hokkaido milk within light butter toasted bread, complete with sweet corn kernels.
Pretty in pink, these two Hokkaido milk cheesecakes are finally back by popular demand! Sakura-infused Hokkaido milk cheesecake Hai! Cheese has mascarpone cheese mouse, while the Sakura Snow Cheese has a light creamy filling.
The Sakura Cottony Cake contains a velvety butter cream infused with tangy plum flavours, while the Fuwa Fuwa Sakura is filled with plum Chantilly cream cheese.
Can’t choose between sweet and savoury? How about getting the best of both worlds with these new sweet and salty treats? For something ligher on the palate, try the Genki Parmesan, a light cheescake sprinkled with parmesan cheese powder. If you want something richer in taste, then get the Salted Caramel Apple Dream which consists of two chiffon layers — vanilla and chocolate. It also has an apple filling, complete with a salted caramel glaze and rare cheesecake mousse.
