It is true – cheese tarts are the new salted egg yolk of food trends here in Singapore because it genuinely seems like everyone is working on and introducing new cheese tart dishes. Of course, the undisputed winner – BAKE Cheese Tart – still has a special place in our hearts, but we are definitely on the look-out for more.
We chanced upon Nigiro Cafe’s unique Churro Cheese Tart (S$4.80) and decided to give it a shot because it has an irresistible molten centre that just looked too good to pass up on! Nigiro Cafe is a Japanese-Italian fusion restaurant and it sits inside Eat at Seven at Suntec City.
Although the restaurant might be a little to tricky to locate, our trip was so worth it and here is why.
First of all, the tart is huge. We recommend having the tart immediately after purchasing so you can savour the freshly baked warmth of it. A flat churro top sprinkled with cinnamon sits atop the tart, exuding a pleasant fragrance.
The tart itself is buttery and not overly crumbly. The actual molten cheese is the perfect combination of sweet and savoury and went superbly well with the rest of the elements.
When eaten together in one bite, it was pretty much heavenly. If it was up to us however, we would have just skipped the churro top and devoured the cheese tart whole! For such a reasonable price tag, there is no reason not to head down for a bite!
