Kumori Philippines

Opening the fridge in the morning and seeing a beautiful box of Japanese goodies waiting for me make my heart flutter. The cheesecakes and pudding from Kumori Philippines were well-loved by my brother and sister-in-law, so they wanted me to try it out as well.

Kumori box

Kumori Philippines opened their first branch at the Lower Ground Floor of Landmark Makati. They just recently announced the opening of their other branch at SM Makati’s basement level via their Facebook page.

I was so excited that it felt like torture waiting until after I’ve come home from manning our store before I was able to open the box up. The wait was, as expected, absolutely worth it. These mini Hanjuku Cheese are to die for!

Kumori cheesecake original and chocolate

I was able to try both the original (left) and the chocolate (right) flavored ones. Both had the super creamy texture and a richness that I didn’t get from other brands I’ve tried before. When they said it melts in your mouth, they weren’t lying.

Oh, and my Mom, who’s not into cheesecakes at all, praised the original ones after she finished off two pieces. That meant something good, right? 🙂

Toyohashi pudding

Although their Hanjuku Cheese became such a hit in our home, I wouldn’t want to completely ignore their Toyohashi Pudding. I loved the silkiness of their pudding and how it had just the right amount of sweetness to it. Nothing over the top here; just a simple and clean dessert I wouldn’t mind shelling out money for.

By the way, don’t just stop at the Original, which tastes like caramel. Their Toyohashi Pudding also comes in Green Tea and Chocolate flavors. Yum~

Apart from the puddings and the cheesecakes, Kumori Philippines also bakes several types of Japanese bread daily. Some of these include Melonpan, Curry Bread and Anpan. I haven’t tried any of these yet, and I’m looking forward to doing so soon! 🙂
