If you’re not familiar with Tokyo Secret, they are a brand that sells scrumptious Japanese Cheese Tart. They are particularly known for their Hanjuku Cheese Tart which comes in different flavours like matcha and chocolate, aside from the bestselling original flavour.

Just out of curiosity, we went to its fusion cafe in Mid Valley Megamall and tried their different meals. But this particular treat got our attention with its unique presentation and hearty volume. Presenting… the Strawberry Lover Honey Toast!

We mean, look at this? It really piqued our curiosity. Do they really serve a whole loaf of bread with a dollop of ice cream just like that for RM27??! Time to find out.

The Taste Test

Yes, to answer the question, it does look like a loaf of bread. But, just the outside though. The inside is a whole different story.

This is a soft Japanese milk bread loaf filled with crispy cubed honey toast and topped with a generous amount of whipping cream, ice cream, custard as well as macarons and fresh strawberries.

The crust outside was not toasted so it was kinda pillowy and chewy at the same time. It goes great with the melting ice cream and custard.

The insides consist of carefully positioned toasts cut into cubic pieces. The crunchy bite-sized toasts tasted sweet and buttery, which goes very nicely with the rich creamy toppings. We were definitely smiling after each bite of this satisfying treat.

Viola, the inside. No wonder lah it cost that much.

The custard was not that sweet and the ice cream was really creamy. You can choose what kind of ice cream flavour you want but we choose to go with the strawberry theme of the meal.

They also have two fresh strawberries glazed with sugar and two strawberry-flavoured macarons with a chocolate filling. It adds a sour and also nutty flavour to the already sweet and creamy ensemble.

Honestly, the whole toast tasted like strawberry-flavoured Pocky. It brings back your childhood memory!

The Verdict

We really do recommend trying this meal as it is apparently a popular dessert originating from Shibuya, Japan. It’s perfect for a two or three-person meal. You can treat your date to this meal or enjoy it with your besties who love strawberries, custard and honey toast.

It’s actually a really filling dessert for one person. But hey, if you think you can gobble it down by yourself, by all means! (We know, we know, tough week huh? You deserve this scrumptious dessert!) Fair warning though, you can get a bit jelak if you finish this all on your own.

However, for this big meal, it took quite a long time (30 minutes) to wait for this one. Luckily for us, it’s worth a RM27 and 30-minute wait.

If you guys are just looking for a place to enjoy premium desserts, then this place is a perfect one. Try their famous Hanjuku Cheese Tart and some cakes while you’re at it too.

They have quite an array selection of cakes.

They Have Other Good Stuff Too

Apart from the toast, their fusion cafe also serves a variety of menus from truffle soup appetizers to Japanese ramen main courses. For these menus though, you’ll feel a bit ‘atas’ when you order them. The place also looks very luxurious and posh. It’s a great spot for you to get those aesthetic pictures.

However, if you just wanna take a bite of something to go and not really cost you a fortune, you can head on to their bakery where they sell freshly baked bread, tarts and more at affordable prices.

Their bakery section is just down a few steps of stairs.
