Japanese Cheesecakes & Cheese Tart Desserts in Bangkok | A Treasure Map

Food trends come and go. Rarely has a food item caused such a craze in recent times as cream cheese-based desserts from Japan. Be it the fluffy “Baked Cheesecake” (often with gooey, molten center), the pillowy-soft “Soufflé/Cotton Cheesecake”, or the chilled, no-bake “Rare Cheesecake” - the Japanese desserts are delicious and have become beloved far over Japan’s borders, with no end of its popularity in sight.

The only buzzkill: these ravishing sweets pack up to 300-400 calories per 100g, which unfortunately suggests to disqualify them as an everyday dessert. As most great things in life, it's recommendable to enjoy them in moderation.
