Chateraise is a quintessential Japanese pastry shop located in Mirdiff 35.
December 1954, the first Chateraise was opened in the foothills of Mt. Fuji. Today, the brand has expanded to almost 500 shops across Japan and many shops around the world. Lucky for us, they also have an outpost in Dubai at Mirdiff 35. Chateraise sweets are made exclusively from specially selected fresh ingredients produced by directly contracted farms and pastures.
We stumbled upon this quaint pastry shop while browsing Mirdiff 35. The endless choice of desserts on display caught our attention and we quickly tried the Baked Cheese Tart (AED 10 per piece). Although they look just like the Portuguese custard tarts, the flavor was less sweet and more subtle.
