Japanese cheesecake coming to Chinatown

Boston Restaurant Talk reports that Uncle Tetsu, which makes cheesecakes, including green-tea matcha cheesecake and ube cheesecake made with purple Filipino yams, plans to open its first East Coast outlet on Hudson Street in Chinatown.



Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!


Japanese cheesecake is not cheesecake, the same way "Manhattan clam chowder" is not chowder. It's tomato soup, rumored to contain clams.

They're not opening a museum of cheesecake and charging $25 to enter.

...make yourself a Basque cheesecake! No crust, and you can easily make it gluten-free by using GF flour (important for those of us w/celiac). It takes an insane amount of cream cheese (I think I had to buy 8 packages), heavy cream, etc. and is basically a heart attack on a cake plate, but oooooooooooohhhh man, is it ever good! (Source: made one myself for New Year's, couldn't get anyone else to come by, and ended up spending the next week eating it--and no, I didn't get sick of it. Not something to make very often, but damn good when you do!)

...why do you need flour, gluten-free or not?

Why would they put tomato soup in cheesecake?


I enjoyed some Uncle Tetsu’s while visiting Toronto and can attest they make delicious treats. I hope they do well!
