Paint it Black: Kumori Japanese Bakery & Cafe and BLK 513 Team Up for the Charcoal Melon Pan

Kumori Japanese Bakery & Cafe ends the year with yet another creative collaboration adding to its long list of innovative offerings...

Kumori Japanese Bakery & Cafe and BLK 513 come together for a novel collab with the new Charcoal Melon Pan, an inventive spin on Kumori's popular bun filled with cream cheese and draped in activated charcoal cookie crust. Kumori Japanese Bakery & Cafe's specialty bun covered with BLK 513's activated charcoal cookie crust combine for an elegant variation and a new flavor experience. One bite, and you'll agree no other bun is like it. 

Fresh from the success of their previous collaboration with Theo & Philo for the indulgent Signature S'mores Tarts, innovation never stops as Kumori Japanese Bakery & Cafe rolls out yet another fresh-baked creation to end the year on a high note...

...this time with the creator of the country's first activated charcoal frozen yogurt, BLK 513. It's collaborations like these that keeps the local culinary scene vibrant and refreshed in this new normal. And it's a surprising pairing that works with its play on textural contrasts and decadent notes for a unique bun like no other.

The new Charcoal Melon Pan (P 68/pc) by Kumori Japanese Bakery & Cafe and BLK 513 simply elevates the melon pan to a whole new level of indulgence. Starting with their specialty pillow-soft bun made with Japanese sweet dough and filled with silky smooth cream cheese, Kumori Japanese Bakery & Cafe goes out of the box by adding a layer of activated charcoal cookie crust by BLK 513.  

The result is a stunningly elegant creation with its deep, black hues. The addition of the delicately crunchy black crust infused with BLK 513's activated charcoal brings texture and nutty, nuanced sweet and salty hints with each bite perfectly finished by the soft dough and the lavish richness of cream cheese. It's these layers of distinct flavors and textures that sets this bun apart from the usual variety. And it still is probably the only one of its kind. 

Made from processed coconut shells, activated charcoal has long been an enduring culinary trend known for its countless health benefits and unique flavors. BLK 513 is the country's pioneer in activated charcoal with its line of frozen yogurt, and the collab with Kumori Japanese Bakery & Cafe brings a totally new and unique spin to activated charcoal with the Charcoal Melon Pan. The result is a rich blend of flavors and textures in a bun. 

The new normal continues to change and transform our daily routine as new consumer habits emerge in response to the times. Dining at home and the rise of the food delivery culture are just some of the lasting legacies in this new normal. But it's encouraging to see innovations in the local culinary scene as food businesses adapt and evolve to stay relevant in the new normal. This is one of them, and we'd like to see more.

The new Charcoal Melon Pan is available in all Kumori Japanese Bakery & Cafe and BLK 513 branches, but you can also order online and have it conveniently delivered to your doorstep. Looking for a new kind of bun experience? Paint it black. With the new Charcoal Melon Pan...
