Another must-stop for me was Uncle Tetsu’s Cheesecake. I had missed it when I went to Osaka last February, so I was pretty set on trying it here. In case you’ve never heard of it, you should really google it! It’s a Japanese, jiggly and fluffy cheesecake! Really aesthetic and light and creamy.
There is always a giant line-up, so I went one day right before they opened, and there was already a line up.
You are actually only allowed to buy a single cheesecake per customer, and if you want to buy a second, you have to leave and then go back in line. This prevents one person from buying all of the cheesecakes.
They have three ovens, that are staggered apart, so they can try and sell a more continuous amount of cheesecakes. They also do cheese tarts here too, but I wanted to stick to their jiggly cheesecake. Pablo also opened up this last summer in Toronto, another famous cheese tart place in Japan, but it opened after I had left!
It’s really cheap and easy to share between two people, so if you happen to stumble upon the cheesecake, definitely give it a try. They also have an dessert cafe which is a couple of blocks away so you can have a slice of their cheesecake, or some of their other fare!
