"uwasa no kuroi" cheesecake

Today was my beads class, boy, was it rough! I am still trying to catch up with the other students in my class...After class, I was exhausted, so I decided to buy myself a treat (don't worry, I bought one for Satoshi too!!) The sign over the glass case said "Uwasa no kuroi cheesecake", which means "the rumored black cheesecake"...I thought, I hope it isn't black sesame seeds on the cheesecake, but when I looked closely at it, it was dark chocolate cookie powder!! (like ground up Oreo's) As I waited for the lady in front of me to purchase hers, a line started to form behind me...(FYI: A line in Japan usually means that whatever the people are lining up for is GOOD or ON SALE, or something LIMITED to that store or in count) Anyway, I bought my two pieces and by the time I left, a good 10 people were behind me in line.

This cheesecake is made by Esola. They have an online shop as well as two shops in Osaka. It is take out only. The top and bottom are ground up dark chocolate cookies, the middle is very fluffy and light. It wasn't very sweet and really hit the spot.

The small size, which is only sold at the original shop, is $3.36--my piece (since I bought it at the department store basement food area) $4.20...worth every penny!!
