Say cheese…

This Taiwanese franchise…

Grand Castella Cake

…had people queuing up for a mile to buy the cake and somebody did buy one for my sis once from their outlet here and I did give it a try but I failed to see what the frenzy was all about. I did not think it was anything I would buy, much less queue up for.

Well, they have an outlet at the megamall that we went to in Miri that day and no, there wasn’t anybody there at the time, no queue, nothing. I guess the novelty has worn off and it no longer has that appeal when it took the country by storm.


special offer

…caught my attention and since I so love those baked Japanese cotton cheesecake, I decided that I must grab this Taiwanese one…

Golden Cheese Cake

…to try.

It was good, pretty much like all the rest…

…but it had a sprinkling of raisins at the bottom, not that this was anything to get excited about.

I bought two – one to eat ourselves in our hotel room and the other for my cousin’s wife, a little something for her trouble in coming all the way to see us at the megamall.

This GRAND CASTELLA CAKE outlet is located on the ground floor, turn left upon entering the main entrance of the Bintang Megamall (4.396911, 113.993408) in Miri.

  1. Ah, now that I read this post, I feel like eating this soft cottony cheesecake. It is so easy to eat that if I don’t stop myself, I could eat the whole cake in one sitting.

    Wowww!!! It’s not big but I think I can only manage half at a time, to the most. At that price, I would want to stretch it as far as possible.

  2. Cotton cheese cake, I would love it. Now it clicks my mind about the long queue to buy this cotton cheese cake when it makes its first appearance. I have the same question as Merryn Tan to ask.

    This is different from the one they were selling when it first made the scene – that one was like kay nerng kor, expensive and not as nice as our local ones, our Foochow lung ngor.
