An-Cheese Tarts by Tsujiguchi Hironobu @ Tokyo Station

Selling popular cheese tarts might be a good way to gain more business but not everyone can do it well and delicious. Unfortunately, celebrity chef Tsujiguchi Hironobu's latest foray into the cheese tart market doesn't seem to hold up remarkably against strong competitors. Being a consistent advocate for traditional Japanese elements in western pastries, he has created a version filled with anko (red bean paste) beneath the cheese (¥216). The other is a lemon flavored chilled cheese tart (¥270) 

Besides the soggy tart shells, the cheese filling was too sweet and leaned towards a cheesecake texture. To be honest, these were very disappointing. The strategic location inside Ecute Tokyo Station definitely sees a constant stream of customers. But I think he should just stick to the butter rusks which was originally sold here.

That was one of the best snacks I've ever had.
