Popular Japanese pastry chain Pablo tempts the tummy and the eyes this month with cheese tart oozing with mango flavour and a limited edition umbrella by noted artist Wisut Ponnimit, creator of little mango girl Mamuang Chan.

The Pablo cheese tart hails from Umeda, Osaka and was launched in 2011 by Masamitsu Sakimoto. His original tart, a rich extra-soft cheese batter delight topped with apricot jam, was an instant hit and now Pablo has 25 branches in Japan, as well as in the Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Pablo landed in Thailand eight months ago and already has branches at Siam Paragon and Central Plaza Lat Phrao.  Mango is the new flavour for this month to match Wisut’s popular cartoon character – the adorable Mamuang Chan.

The Baked Mango Cheese Tart comes in a one-pound size, making it ideal for sharing. The freshly baked cheese tart is a light and crispy affair filled with rich cheese batter and mango puree jam and is priced at Bt475 a piece. Another treat is Mini Mango – a bite-size cheese tart baked to golden-brown perfection, topped with juicy mango bits and drizzled with mango sauce. It costs Bt95 a piece.

Wisut’s special edition umbrellas will be given free to customers who buy a set of Pablo baked cheese tarts and can also be purchased for Bt490 by anyone also buying a piece of baked cheese tart. The promotion is valid until September 14.
