When Uncle Tetsu's arrived in Sydney it was known as 'the place with the very long line'. It also resulted in crowd control barriers and staff with clipboards to manage manic customers after a bite of soft and fluffy cheesecake.
The good news is here: everyone's favourite uncle is moving to Auckland. With over 70 stores worldwide, New Zealand has finally made the cut for the world famous, best-selling Uncle Tetsu's Japanese cheesecakes.
Uncle Tetsu's is world renowned for its distinct light cheesecakes. You won't find a biscuit base or fresh cream cheese top layer; baked in a water bath, the sides are moist like pudding, they're eggy and pancakey, with little sweetness. The cakes are vegetarian friendly but not gluten-free. ￼
There will be just two items on the menu at the flagship Auckland store: the famous Uncle Tetsu's cheesecake and honey madeleines.
Uncle Tetsu's Auckland will officially open this Thursday 12 October at 269-287 Queen Street CBD.
