[NEW] ORIGINAL CAKE From Taiwan Now Open at Gandaria City

The most anticipated famous Taiwanese castella cake chain Original Cake has officially opened in Indonesia. Brought from Taiwan, Original Cake has opened its first shop in Jakarta at Gandaria City Mall (South Jakarta). As you can see from my Instastory last Sunday, we went to the Grand Opening of the Original Cake first store, and there’s a huge crowd in front of their store. Yes, people were queuing to get Free Original Cake which was part of the store promo for the first 600 customers on that day. Wow!

Original Cake is a well-known bakery from Taipei that is specializing in Castella cakes since it first opened in 2010 in the Tamsui district of Taiwan. They believe in using traditional recipes combined with fresh and best ingredients can provide what is best for their customers. I was lucky to have a chat with one of the owners from Taiwan who happened to be present at the Grand Opening held on Sunday, March 04, 2018 as well.

No one can resist the smell of freshly baked cakes like this. Can you? Everyone can smell the aroma of the baking cakes, and see the process as they serve a fresh big slab of Castella cakes from the oven, slicing it while it’s piping hot and packing it in front of the customer. Omo, look at that!

At the moment, Original Cake Indonesia has two different flavors; Original and Golden Cheese. If you don’t like cheese, the Original Cake is a safe choice because it’s classic. I haven’t tried the Original one, but the Golden Cheese Cake is definitely for cheese lovers. The melted cheese that flows out within the cake gave a nice savory kick without being too heavy on the palate.

Overall, for us, this cake wasn’t too salty, yet balanced with the mildly sweet sponge, we loved it! Freshly made, and with that fluffy texture, this cake is delightful to enjoy with coffee/tea time at home. The best part about Original Cake Indonesia, it does not contain pork or lard. Besides, it’s inexpensive too; you can buy the Original Cake for IDR 70K dan Golden Cheese for IDR 80K while still in the soft opening promotion. Thank you for reading!
