First of all, what exactly is "Kobe Cheese Toast"?

This toast is made with cheese and sake lees and was born in Kobe, the city of bread, cheese, and sake. This unexpected combination creates a sweet and salty yet refined taste that has been very well received! We aim to create a local toast that is loved by both Kobe locals and tourists!

In Kobe, the latest gourmet hit is Kobe cheese toast, an original dish made by coffee shops that is now appearing one after another!

Currently, Kobe Cheese Toast is served at 11 coffee shops in Kobe City. You can enjoy Kobe Cheese Toast with its own unique flavor, made with homemade bread or topped with red bean paste, maple syrup, or fruit!

Rich and juicy!! Kobe residents highly praise it as a "new sensation of rum raisin"!!

Please take this opportunity to try some local Kobe food!

Using bread, which has a deep connection with Kobe, we worked together with the cooperation of not only local people but also local businesses to create ``local toast'' that can be eaten on any occasion, such as breakfast, lunch, or snacks. After spending months examining ``unique combinations with cheese toast,'' three ingredients were selected as final candidates: ``black beans,'' ``Ikanago,'' and ``Sake lees.'' We held a general election that gathered the voices of the people of Kobe for about 20 days, and out of three toasts, the one that was chosen was "Sake Kasu Cheese Toast"! Some said, ``It's an unexpected collaboration, but it's delicious,'' ``Once I tried it, I was hooked,'' and ``I think I can make it at home.'' We will develop "Sake Lees Cheese Toast" using sake lees and cheese as Kobe Cheese Toast so that it can be eaten at restaurants and coffee shops in Kobe.
