    焼きたてチーズタルト専門店PABLO パブロさん(@pablo_cheese_tart)がシェアした投稿 –

    Pablo is a popular store in Japan which specializes in cheesecakes and cheese tarts. It was named after great Spanish artist Pablo Picasso, and has been operating in the country for such a long time that it has even expanded abroad. Some say it is the best cheesecake in the world owing to the flexibility in treating the cakes as they can become gooey or firm.

    Cheesecakes and tarts in Pablo come in different varieties in order to suit the different tastes of customers. These goodies are so smoothly textured with an appetizing look that make them an ideal souvenir to take home. You can locate one of Pablo’s bakeries at the JR Osaka Station Midosuji south exit which is a perfect spot for you to grab something before you head home. This souvenir will be great for every person who loves tasty, cheesy desserts.

    Glico Baton D’Or

    In French, Baton D’Or means ‘golden stick’. This is a sophisticated Glico pastry which lives up to its name with its slender and curvy figure. It looks golden due to the amount of butter used when making this. It was first sold in Japan in 2013, and has since been spiced up with new flavors such as chocolate coating.

    They come in so many existing flavors such as strawberry, coffee, green tea, milk, and cinnamon complemented by butter sugar, maple sugar, cinnamon sugar, green tea sugar, strawberry sugar, etc. Some say this is the luxurious version of Pocky, a popular Japanese snack food by Ezaki Glico, because of the expensive ingredients used.

    This is a limited item as only two shops are selling this in Osaka. On most days, they are sold out before 2pm. So, if you have the luxury of time to stand in line while waiting for the next train, you may get the opportunity to buy some. However, sometimes it takes longer than an hour so you have to be patient. Click here for directions.

    So if you find yourself in Osaka Station, take the chance to get your hands on these premium goods!
