Takeout @ Uncle Tetsu Unionville

12:44:00 PM

For this weekend, I took the family for a stroll in the Main Street Unionville area.  I heard about Uncle Tetsu opening shop uptown back in June 2016. They finally opened in late August 2016 (beyond their original promise of July 2016).

I had never bought from Uncle Tetsu for their cheese cake and thought this opportunity was the perfect chance to acquire one ...

Uncle Tetsu took over an old jewelry store that was located on the west side of Main Street near the Old Fire House building. I pretty much had to wait about 1 hour in line that extended all the way to the sidewalk (this was around 6pm) with roughly 20-30 people in front of me ...

Once the cheesecakes were available, I paid cash (only cash accepted) and was off with my cheesecake and two flavours of madeleine cookies (not exactly french looking version).

You could only buy 1 cheesecake per person. Apparently, you can pre-order 10 cheesecakes if you want ...

We got back home and tried their cheesecake. It was not overly sweet. The cheese flavour wassubtler and the texture was more like a souffle. The cake was delightfully light, airy, fluffy and moist. It was almost like eating air ...

I had been told that it was preferred to consume right away or chill in fridge. We tried both and my SO agreed that eating fresh was the best. 

Would I get it again? Yes but hopefully with less people in line ...
