BIG IN MARKHAM

By now, we’re all rather well versed in the con­cept of Ja­panese cheese­cake thanks to one par­tic­u­lar un­cle. (In case you were liv­ing in a base­ment, that un­cle goes by the name Tetsu.) You’ve heard it all: to get your paws on a springy cake there are plenty of ob­sta­cles, in­clud­ing an early rise, snaking lines and an al­lowance of one cheese­cake. Love Me Sweet, Markham’s just-opened cheese­cake bak­ery, aims to side­step all of this ker­fuf­fle.

Owner Hao Hung prom­ises that cus­tomers will be in and out of the shop quickly, wait­ing no more than 40 min­utes at peak week­end times. Each batch of 12 takes 40 min­utes to bake in the three-deck oven. Fa­nat­ics can sam­ple the wares be­fore they buy and are able to pro­cure as many as they de­sire dur­ing the week and two come the week­end (hey, you gotta be fair). The orig­i­nal cake is made with cream cheese, but­ter, sugar flour and milk, re­sult­ing in a cloud-light tex­ture and del­i­cate cream cheese flavour. For those look­ing to try some­thing dif­fer­ent, Love Me Sweet also of­fers choco­late and coffee ver­sions (Love Me Sweet, 7181 Yonge St., Unit 16, 647-633-1899).
