Chef Yamashita

Chef Yamashita is one of the shophouses housed in the old school Tanjong Pagar Plaza. It is known for its Japanese Artisan Cakes and well like on social media. The exterior of the shop was designed in wooden textural brown and was quite prominent from far. Therefore, one would not easily miss the shop.

As we entered the shop, the space was rather limited and only allow a few customers at one time to purchase the cakes over the counter. Just next to the counter, you can get some recipe books, cookies and gift boxes.

The first bite of Japanese light cheesecake with fresh strawberries had swept me away. The cake was light and fluffy without being too cloying with the strawberries topping the cake. Texture of cake was spongy and moist.

Ichigo Soufflé (いちごスフレ) - $7.20

Chocolate Lover should get this. This rich chocolate sponge cake with ganache is not too sweet in taste and is definitely a perfect creation for people who enjoy having chocolate cake. The cake is adorned with blueberry, fruits and some chocolate.

Choco Renga (チョコレンガ) - $7

Sliced Strawberry, fresh cream and chocolate were decked up by layers of puff pastry alternating with fresh cream. Raspberry jam was spread on the layers, making up the Mille Feuille. 

Mille-Feuille  (ミルフィーユ) - $7.20

This premium cream puff makes use of Hokkaido Milk and Japanese Flour filled with their homemade custard and chocolate chantilly cream. The topped was dusted with some icing powder and the texture of the crust is soft and chewy.

Premium Choux (Original) - $3

Their high-quality artisan cakes are heavenly. Service was polite and ended with a friendly smile. I will not mind having my future birthday cakes from Chef Yamashita.
