Cake Ya Japanese Dessert is a lovely Japanese bakery located in Port Moody off the beaten path on Clarke Road (a few blocks away from Rocky Point). They specialize in cream pudding with a Japanese fusion twist: Custard Creme Caramel, Match Creme, Black Sesame, etc. As you are prepared to pay for your goods, you are immediately distracted by the beautiful cake rolls: Matcha Red Bean, Chestnut, Strawberry… and then the Okinawa Shortbread… You can kiss that diet Good Bye. Adieu!
Chestnut Cake Roll: Chestnut puree covered heavenly soft sponge cake with whipped cream center with more chestnut with a chestnut on top.
Matcha Red Bean Cake Roll: A light but robust flavored green tea sponge cake filled with tender soft red bean and smothered with whipped cream. I died.
Japanese Baked Cheesecake: In Japan they call it soufflé cheesecake. Japanese cheesecake stands out in the crowd by its velvety smooth, creamy yet fluffy texture. It general shrinks in cold temperature. So it is best eaten freshly baked out of the oven!
Okinawa Shortbread: Fine crumbly buttery shortbread. Each crunch bursts with flavors. I love that I can taste the matcha so evidently and yet it is not bitter. Sesame is fragrant and if you break it apart, it goes incredibly well as a ice cream topping. Try it! Vanilla Red Bean was interesting but I’m not a huge fan of red bean to begin with.
If you are lucky, you might catch their Daifuku made fresh daily (occasionally). Sometimes, it is just nice to take a break from that black forest cake.
And if Cake Ya Japanese Dessert in Port Moody is too far for you, than perhaps you can try Suzuya Japanese Market too in Burnaby.
