Kumori Bakery now in the Philippines
Posted on

By Dinna Vasquez

There is cheesecake as we know it and there is Japanese cheesecake, which is less dense than the traditional version, meaning it’s lighter and fluffier.
Kumori, a Nagoya-based bakery, is known for its Signature Hanjuku Cheese, which is half-baked and individually wrapped. Each bite is soft and velvety with just the right amount of sweetness that the Japanese have perfected.

Signature Hanjuku Cheese

The Relish Group, which owns Wee Nam Kee and Osaka Osho in the Philippines, has opened two Kumori stores at the basements of Landmark department store and SM Makati.
Linfred Yap, managing partner at The Relish Group, says not many Filipinos knew about Kumori when they first came here.
“They would look at the store, buy a cheesecake and eat it on the spot. More often than not, they would buy a box to take home. Many of our customers are regulars who come here just to buy the cheesecake, which also has a chocolate flavor.”

Toyohashi Pudding

Also very popular among Filipinos are the Toyohashi Pudding in single serve cups (the original variant tastes like a crème brulee), and Krone, a Danish pastry that’s filled with vanilla custard.
Those who like savory breads can try the Salmon Bonito, which has a salmon filling drizzled with teriyaki sauce and sprinkled with bonito flakes, or the Parmesan Cheese Bun.
The bakery also sells whole cakes including Tofu Cheesecake, Light Double Cheesecake and Saku-Saku Chocolate Cake.

All the ingredients used by Kumori, except the eggs, are imported from Japan. Everything, according to Linfred, is made from scratch.
Linfred says Kumori in the Philippines will offer more breads and pastries in the future. In November, Kumori will open a 100-square-meter outlet in SM North Edsa where people can sit and enjoy sandwiches and other light savory fare aside from cakes and pastries.

i wonder where the author got the info about this bakery being based in Nagoya. There’s a Komugi bakery in Malaysia and the logo and tagline of Kumori looks very similar to Komugi. http://www.komugi.com.my/ A search with Google shows that Komugi, the ‘Japan bread shop’, opened its doors in November 2012, showcasing its first outlet in Pavilion and now boasts of 8 outlets across Klang Valley. Komugi is further expanding across Malaysia rapidly. In 2015, it opened its franchise outlets in Manila, Philippines. Multiple Reward Sdn Bhd the holding company of brands like Komugi, Inaho and Minori is fast expanding… Read more »

I’ve only tried the Original flavor of the pudding. It’s so good, like a liquidy version of a creme brulee. ?
