Streetsville residents Sami and Mona Kustantini have teamed up with PR guru and close friend Jerry Grymek to bring Supermoon Japanese Style Cheesecakes to Mississauga’s thriving food scene.
Sami says “we wanted to bring some fun trendy food that is often found in Toronto to our local neighbourhood. We looked for a location along Queen Street and then a spot at 128 Queen Street South opened up. The stars and planets just aligned.”
Mona is the creative chef extraordinaire and explains “the difference between Japanese style cheesecake and regular cheesecake is that Japanese style uses less cream cheese and has a lot of whipped egg whites to keep it super fluffy.”
This wonderful new bakery specializes in Japanese-style cheesecakes, cheese tarts and bubble tea. They’re available in regular, chocolate and red velvet, with other seasonal flavours available for holidays.
“The idea of Supermoon has been in development since late 2016 and after all of our hard work, it feels great to have finally landed in Mississauga. We were able to taste a lot of versions of the recipes so the journey has been as fun as the destination. We want to grow as this is only the beginning for us – it’s one small step for Mississauga, one giant step for Supermoon!” proclaims Jerry.
Supermoon wants to incorporate Flavours of the Month that will play off of key seasons and holidays (i.e. Pumpkin flavour in October).
The food is delicious; the location is ideal and the enthusiasm and drive is ever-present.
Where did the last component, the unique name, come from?
Mona explained it was inspired by a story she wrote based on a legend that Sami turned into a poem.
Once upon a time, an old man lived on the moon. Had a sweet craving, and so he grabbed his spoon, packed up his things, and got in a balloon. He arrived on earth, in search of a delicious treat. Something very fluffy, yet cheesy, and sweet. Until one day he came across friendly bunny, who made him laugh out loud for being so funny. Together they walked in the dark, and when it was sunny, searching for sugar, cream, milk, and honey. “Hocus Pocus” the bunny yelled waving his hand, and created a dessert that is anything but bland. The most magical of cheesecakes in all of the land. Grateful, the old man said “you have a marvellous gift! Come live with me on the moon, I can give you a lift!” But with no gravity, the cheesecakes were so fluffy they flew, through the galaxy, into our bakery, and finally to you! “We can make cheesecakes all day and all night, and enjoy them to the very last magnificent bite!”
This poem is smartly posted in bakery for all to read. It’s an ingenious way for customers who are waiting for their orders to learn about Supermoon.
While I could write another few pages on how great Supermoon is, I highly recommend you head there yourself to experience and taste the great products they have to offer.
