Please transport me back to Japan! Although I don't eat Kobi Beef and legit tonkatsu, my sweet tooth misses Japanese desserts a lot! I think I reached this Japan sepanx when I tasted Uncle Tetsu's new Signature Cheese Tart variant 2 days ago. It is nice, well-made, hindi nakakaumay... very much like the brand's country of origin.
I was able to try it in SM North EDSA, The Block, at the Cheesecake Festival. Yep, we have that there! When my friends learned I was going to a cheesecake fair, Pax said "Taray ng Cheesecake Festival! Sarap, haha!"
In western countries and even here in the Philippines, we are very much used to the heavy and extra-creamy cheesecakes we have in coffee shops. They are sooo good and also very sinful!
But with Uncle Tetsu, cheesecakes are fluffier and lighter. They taste so so good, melts in your mouth, and for me it doesn't have the post-eating guilt!
Here's Uncle Tetsu's stall at the SM North EDSA's Cheesecake Fair:
I tried their Original Cheesecake in ATC before, so it's nice to know that they have more variants now.
Interesting snack! Cheesecake Toast - P75.
Cheesecake Monsters! With MJ, Michael, and Papi Rodel:
Why not! :D
Aside from Original, they now have Signature Cheese Tart and Cheese Tart baked with OREO.
Uncle Tetsu's Signature Cheese Tart is delicately baked pastry made of a creamy and cheesy filling combined with a flaky pie crust. It has the balanced taste of sweetness and saltiness--it is actually my current favorite variant!
The filling is made from the finest selection of cream cheese, milk, sugar, egg, and flour. I learned during our lunch with Uncle Tetsu Philippines' Charles Co and Mitzi Uy that everything's baked fresh, and the cheesecake crust were created for around 3 days. Talk about perfection!
Uncle Tetsu's Signature Cheese Tart (15.5 diameter) - Php 275.
Also available in mini version for only Php 49.
Uncle Tetsu Cheese Tart baked with OREO (a bit sweeter) - Php 325.
Currently, these sweet treats are available in SM Megamall (Mega A), MOA, SM Fairview, SM San Lazaro, The Podium, Alabang Town Center, and at the SM North EDSA The Block for the Cheesecake Festival (till August 31 only).
Abangers for their cheesecake! Hehe. Enjoy them for take out, my mom plans to give some to her amigas. Uncle Tetsu accepts bulk orders, just call 239-2959.
My favorite is the Signature Cheese Tart, served chilled ala dessert. I also learned that you can warm the pastries in an oven toaster to achieve a crispy crust, goes perfectly with your coffee. :p I'll try that next time!
Thank you, Uncle Tetsu!
