Sold 1,500 cheese cake a day!! PABLO

Happy New Year! This is Masae from Osaka Hana Hostel.

We have many many guests come back from outside holding this bag in their hand.

It is a bag of famous cheese cake(tarte) shop called "PABLO".

The concept of this shop is
"To start revolution and movement in like Pablo Picasso did as an artist".

They have a various items, but the most popular one is
Fresh Baked Cheese Tarte.
A whole cheese tarte is 680yen, I think it's quite reasonable and of course it taste very good!

2type of cheese tarte they have
You can choose "Rare"or "Medium"
↑ This is Medium.
They make a fresh cheese terte everyday

I always wonder why they are so popular (of course because it's tasty), so I asked some guests why you bought them.

They said because this shop is on their guide books,
and some guests told me because they saw a long queue in front of the shop, so they wonder what it is and lined up as well.

I passed by the shop last night.... and WOW!!!

Can you see people line up in front of the shop?
Yes!! They are very popular!!!
