STORE OPENING: DORÉ BY LeTAO PIK AVENUE

Congratulations for Doré by LeTao 4th store in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Located on PIK Avenue, the biggest mal in Pantai Indah Kapuk, North Jakarta, I believe it’s smaller than their Plaza Indonesia’s store. At the opening event when I attended, there were no seats like the one in Plaza Indonesia. So I guess, this store is just for take-away only.

FYI, Doré is a subsidiary brand of LeTAO, one of the best-selling cheesecake brands in the world. Founded in 1996 and based in Hokkaido, Japan, LeTAO is celebrated around the globe for their delicate and velvety cheesecakes. To produce such, they work meticulously with Japanese pastry chefs which use specific oven imported from Japan. 

In the PIK Avenue store, they showcase their finest ingredients.

Yes, lots of cheese! But for those who are more adventurous, there are more exciting flavors such as, strawberry, coffee and chocolate. 

Since it’s almost Christmas, there are pretty gift boxes and hampers to choose here.

And…if you’re not a cake person, no worries, there are lots of cookies to choose too. Like this Golden Honey Palmier.

These days, you don’t even have to come to the store to purchase them. Go to their website here, order via Whatsapp and they’ll deliver to your doorstep.
