Uncle Tetsu Cheesecake, Central Park Mall

Lately, Japanese cheesecake become a hype in Jakarta. Last Saturday, there's a new outlet of Uncle Tetsu Shop opened in Central Park Mall. If I'm not mistaken, almost 1,000 people was in the long line on that opening day since early morning because of the promotion - Rp. 8.000 per cake (normal price is Rp. 80.000 per cake). During promotion period, each customer only can buy 1 cake.

There is still a promotion Rp. 50.000 per cake until 23 April 2017. So yesterday, I also joined the long line to try this famous Uncle Tetsu Japanese cheesecake although I'm actually not a souffle cheesecake fan because I prefer American or European cheesecake.

The open kitchen.

Watching how the cheesecakes are being prepared.

The final of mixing the cheesecake batter is using the hand.

Fresh from the oven.

Stamping the "Uncle Tetsu" on the top of the Cheesecakes.

It tasted more milky than cheesy. 
The texture is very fluffy, like eating cotton :)

1 USD = Rp. 13.292
