Japan Diaries: Pablo Mini The Cheese Tart and Jack In The Donuts in Tokyo (Akihabara) Japan. Visited January 2019.

In Japan if I ever walked past anything that smelt good, I had it in my hands within minutes. This happened when I walked past Pablo Mini and Jack in the Donuts. No regrets.

Pablo Mini The Cheese Tart: Around the corner from Akihabara train station, there is a yellow brick store decorated with fake grass on the roof. This is the first brick & mortar store for Pablo Mini. Inside dozens of freshly baked tarts lined the shelves. Flavours included original (also known as plain), matcha, chocolate and strawberry. 
The seasonal specials were the sweet potato and caramel flavours and we watched a man delicately place red beans on the matcha/red bean flavour . One tart cost starts from 220 yen each but of course Hai and I got a 6 pack box to share.
I loved chocolate and original. The pastry is buttery and flaky; and the filling is smooth and had that unique creamy texture that only the Japanese can achieve. Japanese milk is so good, I don't understand how they achieve it. They must massage their cows daily.

Jack In The Donuts: Located near the famous Akihabara's Yodabashi Camera store, is this cute donut store. The shop front caught my eyes first, with thirty types of pastries lined up in abundance. They had classic ones, mochimochi (chewy) ones, cronuts, custard filled ones and "healthy" tofu ones. I didn't bother with a tofu one as I was on holidays, dammit. 
It was my first time trying a mochimochi one - it had a crisper exterior but inside was soft and chewy. I was able to pull the donut back from my mouth like stringed cheese. 
I wouldn't be able to find this type of thing back home in Australia. I also had the premier chocolate donut, topped with nuts and icing sugar. Bloody delicious
