You know that strange limbo between sweet and savoury?

Add a fluffy-yet-gooey consistency and crisp pastry base that could be a dessert or could be a brunch item and you have the famous Japanese cheese tarts that have made their way to Australia, fresh from Tokyo’s Harajuku district.

The tart is baked either ‘medium’ or ‘rare’ and is a slightly different scenario to Uncle Tetsu's Japanese Cheesecake, which is more spongey in texture.

It’s safe to say Tokyo’s darling baked cheese tarts are trending Down Under. Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tarts and Pablo have both set up shop in Sydney and often have lines out the door.

We tried the famous Pablo cheese tarts and the creamy-cheese wobbly filling is addictive. They come in mini-sizes as well as family-size, with a marmalade jam on top.

Check out the video at the top of the article for all the cheesy goodness.
