Head Office-Limited Sweets Combo -LeTAO Head Office in Otaru-
March 9th, 2015
LeTao (ルタオ) is a popular confectionery store in Otaru city and was founded in 1998. Kotobuki Spirits Co. Ltd., (寿スピリッツ株式会社) famous confectionery company in Tottori, is a parent company. I thought that an origin of Letao inverted Otaru in Japanese language, but it was wrong. It is an initial "Dear tower of Otaru in French language (小樽の親愛なる塔 * Le Tour Amitie Otaru)". That was unexpected.
Along Sakaimachi-Dori Street, there are 5 stores, LeTao Head Office (ルタオ本店), Pathos Branch (パトス), Le Chocolat Branch (ルショコラ), Cheese Cake labo Branch (チーズケーキラボ) and Plus Branch (プラス). We visited the LeTAO Head Office this time. They sell sweets items on first floor, and there is a coffee shop on second floor. Because they served head office-limited sweets, we ordered those. Those are sweets combo with Marvelous Meltable in the Mouth (奇跡の口どけセット) and sweets combo with Temptation of Chocolate (ショコラの誘惑セット). As for the price, each one was JPY 1,296. A drink is served as sweets combo, too. About 10 minutes later, those were served.
The sweets combo with Marvelous Meltable in the Mouth has Double Fromage (double layered cheesecake with baked cream cheese and no-bake mascherpone) and Venezia Rendezvous (cake with mild texture like pudding and aroma) on a plate, and fruits, fresh cream and candy were dished up beautifully. It was colored generally by white. A taste of the cheese was rich when I ate a mouthful. The sweetness was just right, and peole might eat it deliciously if people does not has a sweet tooth.
Sweets Combo with Marvelous Meltable in Mouth of LeTAO is found on Amazon.
My senior gave me a bite of the sweets combo with Temptation of the Chocolate. Chocolat Catalana (frozen pudding) and Chocolat Double (double layered chocolate cheesecake) using high-quality manjari chocolate of Valrhona company are served on a plate. This was colored generally by black. The sweetness was just right, and it had a little bitter taste. But it was smooth and was tasty. The frozen pudding was tasty, too, and peole might eat it deliciously if people does not has a sweet tooth, too. By the way, they do not have a free parking lot, please use a partner parking lot around store.
