Yes!!! After a failed attempt to actually get jiggly Japanese cheesecake in Japan, I was elated to find Uncle Tetsu in Del Amo Mall. They only had ube and strawberry flavors this afternoon, so I went with the ube. At $12, this ain’t cheap... but after the taste test... THIS IS TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!! The cheesecake was light and fluffy and moist with a very delicate ube flavor. So subtle that you can barely taste it (or the cheese) at all. I got a hint of egg in the cake, which is probably what helps make it so fluffy. The cake is a bit oily, which probably contributes to the moistness. Two thumbs up from me for this decadent splurge. Can’t wait to try other flavors in the future. ?

Their cheesecakes are SOOO delicious - light and fluffy! They are doing pick up orders now. You have to reserve a time the day before pick up before they close. So if you order the day before after business hours, you get pushed to the next day. No curbside. You have to go in. Once it's time for your pick up, you go to the counter and give them your name on the reservation. Here is the link to order! https://www.exploretock.com/uncletetsutorrance?tock_source=tock&tock_medium=search_nav Good luck!

I love their cheesecakes, and I've missed them during the stay at home orders shutting them down. I heard del amo was opening back up, and I was wondering if they were included, so I just called them. The person who picked up the phone was super polite and said that they're starting online ordering/pickup starting this Tuesday; no purchasing at the register. I just wanted to share the news with other people who might be interested in knowing.

Best cheesecake tasting like a sponge cake

Never stepped inside this bakery, but my friend served this at her home. I tried this Japanese Cheesecake and I'm hooked, so much I had to post this review! Asian desserts tend to be less sweet which I prefer, so I'm not surprised that I liked this iteration of cheesecake. I do love Cheesecake Factory's cheesecake too, but if you want to assuage any guilt, try this version. It's much lighter..."fluffier" than its' typical, denser, original American cousin. In addition, the circumference of this cheesecake is significantly smaller in size as well. Seriously, it's so cute! We had the plain or original version. If you're one to prefer a simpler cheese cake without the fruit or extra sweet additions, this is for you. I think it would make a nice unique dessert to bring for a dinner party or potluck. I want to try the other flavors, so I'll be paying them a visit soon!

I recommend original and that is also what sells best. The very berry flavor (mix of raspberry and cranberry) was not strong enough and I decided to go with the original one. They said all the flavors were natural. As it was in the morning, they said they only had the very berry flavor as a sample... Wish they had more samples lined up as the store is already open. The cake is fluffy and delicate. Not too sweet like some American sweets. I'm glad to try this but as the whole cake is on the small side, you may need to get a few of them if you're sharing with a group of people.

I wanted to try Uncle Tetsu for their Japanese cheesecakes. We were able to sample ALL of the flavors they had, which is nice since it gives you a better idea of which one you would like. The worker was patient with us as we tried all the different flavors. There was literally no line, so we were able to get our cheesecake and go. We got the limited edition berry flavor. Some of the other cheesecakes were not strong in flavor, but I like how they are not too sweet. I am not one who enjoys eating super sweet things, so these cheesecakes were perfect. I would say the price is decent since you get the whole cheesecake. Uncle Tetsu is located on the second floor of the mall, so it may be a little hard to find at first. At least you could walk around the mall afterwards! We went at night, so the lights we saw on the way to Uncle Tetsu were pretty.

First time trying this place. I tried the strawberry and chocolate cheesecake. I loved the taste and how fluffy and soft it is when u bite into it. Very reasonable prices. Staff is polite and friendly. Recommend this only if your more of a bread person. If you prefer actual cheesecake this is not for you my friend.

Recommended from a coworker to try Uncle Tetsu cheesecake from Santa Anita location. Instead I tried the Sea Salt iced Green Tea and it's my favorite drink ! The green tea is so to rich and compliments well with the sea salt. My favorite part is when the foam collapses into the green tea. Creating a paradise of flavors on your pallet. I live in Los Angels and no longer work in Santa Anita. I pray that Uncle Tetsu Corp not forget about the people reside in between there only two locations Santa Anita and Torrance. I know dtla and ktown have many boba spots, but their not Uncle Tetsu. I hope for your continue success and growth especially in Los Angels.

I drove all the way from Mexico just for this cake. However, on the website it says opening hour from 10 am -10 pm, when I got to the shop was like 9.30pm and it was closed. I rushed it to the shop from Mexico border but came back with disappointment. Hope u would keep the trading hours based on the website described otherwise I do not know how many people would be fooled by this misstatement.

OK I understand the hype. I really wanted to be disappointed but we loved it. The cheesecake is surprisingly dense yet fluffy. It has literally the perfect balance. It's not overwhelmingly sweet too. I ordered the original but next time, I will be back for the matcha and the coffee flavors. I'm not a fan of cheesecake but I love the asian cheesecakes because it's not too crazy cheesy. Each cheesecake is $10+ taxes. I thought it was going to be much more expensive. It is small but I highly recommend!! They give out free samples but I was eating an ice cream so I didn't take one ):

I love that they give samples! The cheesecake is so fluffy and delicious! The matcha is not as sweet as the chocolate and original, so this was an easy choice. Very reasonably priced for cake, and appropriately sweet! Please make a branch in Seattle.

I've been wanting to visit an Uncle Tetsu store to sample their famous Japanese cheesecakes! I was happily surprised to see this store after dinner at Din Tai Fung. The cheesecakes are so light and fluffy. It tasted like a lightly sweetened cheesecake flavored sponge cake. The staff let us sample a few flavors-original, chocolate, matcha and pumpkin. It was really good. I liked original and chocolate the best. My son tried the Butterfly pea tea lemonade. It was very pretty. The blue tea was an herbal tea brewed from pea leaves. It turned purple when poured over the lemonade. I would definitely visit another location for an Uncle Tetsu Cheesecake!

Very tasty Japanese cheesecake. It's more eggy, more cake like than our regular cheese cake. While having a texture of sponge cake, there is a hint cheese creamy and sweetness in the original flavor. I can easily eat up half of this delightful cake. It's about $10 for one. Knowing how much work to make a Japanese cheesecake and how easily it could go wrong in between, I'll totally get one from here and enjoy without sweating!
