My mother is a cheesecake fanatic, she first started getting a sweet tooth when she was pregnant with me and it hasn't stopped since. You can bet there is always a cake in her fridge. When I heard Uncle Tetsu was opening, I especially wanted to get her one to try. The store had opened in Toronto in March and debuted with a 3 hour line up. I don't have much patience for a line up, especially not in the freezing cold. Finally last week I had the afternoon off for summer Friday and I prepped myself for the waiting game. I got to the store at 2:30 and managed to come out of the store with two cakes (I befriended the lovely family in me and asked them nicely to buy me an extra cake because it's one per person) an hour later. Afterward I popped next door to Uncle Tetsu's Matcha Cafe to pick up some matcha madelines, thank goodness there was only 4 people in line here, I had definitely used up all my waiting quota. The Japanese cheesecake uses lots of eggs and cream cheese and is whipped to be fluffy cake and cannot be compared to a New York Cheesecake. Having had Japanese cheesecake before, I had high expectation for Uncle Tetsu's. It met my expectations and beyond. It was by far the softest Japanese cheesecake I've ever had. My mother's verdict? Albeit light, fluffy and tastiest out of all the Japanese cheesecakes she's ever had but because she could get this kind of cake elsewhere, it was not worth the one hour wait. As for me, I would gladly wait 10 minutes for it.
