Osaka is known as the food capital of Japan, and for good reason. From savory to sweet to even the exotic, you can find it all here. But if you have a sweet tooth that never seems to be satisfied, here are four popular dessert shops you need to visit in Osaka!
Rikuro Ojisan no Mise offers light and jiggly, freshly baked cheesecakes. Fresh ingredients consisting of cream cheese, eggs, milk, and slightly sweet raisins are mixed together to make this fun dessert. You can purchase an entire cake for only 695 yen. Keep it to yourself or buy it for a large group, either way, you have one day to consume it unless you refrigerate it to make it last a day longer.
Famous all throughout Japan is PABLO, known for their freshly baked cheese tarts. Locals and tourists alike have become addicted to the different flavors of cheese tart that PABLO has to offer: original, fruits, matcha, sweet potato, etc. – for a price ranging between 850 yen and 2,160 yen. Their original cheese tart is soft and gooey with a sweet glaze coating.
For those wary of buying a full-size cheese tart, smaller ones called “PABLO mini” are available. They also come in various flavors, priced at 200 yen to 300 yen. Note that some PABLO mini flavors are not offered in the full size.
Melon pan or melon bread isn’t what you’re thinking. It has no melon taste nor is it made from melons. Its unique name comes from the “lumps” of the bread that resemble the ones found on melons. It’s soft, it’s warm, and it’s got an interesting shape. Any bread lover has to give one of these a try. To give your taste buds an even better experience, try a melon pan filled with ice cream!
The melon pan ice cream sandwich from World’s Second Best Melon Pan Ice Cream is the perfect treat. Right out of the oven, a warm melon pan is split into two and filled with cold, creamy vanilla and matcha ice cream for only 400 yen. They have a few other ice cream flavors which also cost 400 yen. For those who just want to try a plain melon pan, they sell them for 200 yen.
Krispy Kreme might not be a Japanese company but that doesn’t mean they don’t mix it up in their stores. Checking out a Krispy Kreme in Japan is a must for doughnut and Krispy Kreme lovers.
You’ll find the Original Glazed at 150 yen, and they stock their shelves with various creative flavors such as Uji Green Tea Cake (200 yen) and Brûlée Glazed Custard (220 yen). They also offer limited flavors depending on the season.
Keep in mind that aside from delicious seafood and ramen, Japan has a wide variety of scrumptious dishes, including dessert. After you’ve had your lunch or dinner, stop by at one of these dessert shops to satisfy your sweet tooth!
