Take out @ Uncle Tetsu's Japanese Cheesecake (Downtown Toronto - Bay Street)

5:11:00 PM

For this day, I had to venture downtown to help with on campus recruitment sessions for next year co-op students for work. Since the university campus was very close to Uncle Tetsu, I thought it would be a good time to visit the downtown location.

My experiences at the Unionville Uncle Tetsu can be found here.

To the surprise of many in the foodie universe, I did not try the original location for until now. I normally don't have the time to wait in line for hours for a single Japanese cheesecake especially downtown. When I got here at 11 am, there was no line ups and the front doors were open. JACKPOT!! It felt the closest thing to winning a lottery ...

Since there was no line-up and only 2 customers ahead of me in line, the staff were moving very quickly. I saw signs of 1 cheesecake per customer limitation in effect. After the 2 customers obtained their cheesecake, I was just hoping that they still had some for me ... LUCKY, they still did!

Servers moved really fast and took time to explain to me the other cheesecake variant called Angel Hat.

For $10 each, I bought the original cheesecake and Angel Hat cheesecake. The Angel Hat flavour seems a bit more sharp/bitter to me.The servers explained that the Angel Hat uses multiple cheeses (cream cheese, Grana Padano cheese) to make this version and was considered more fluffy than the original. Personally, fluffy - yes , tasty - no. I actually still like the original cheesecake (my SO also agreed with me).

Was it worth getting? Definitely especially when there is no wait! I came back to visit around 3:30 pm and there was 10 people line up out the door ...
