Uncle Tetsu's Cheesecake

Special thanks to Uncle Tetsu's Cheesecake for extending this food review invitation.

Update: This business has ceased its operations.

After several months since its opening, Uncle Tetsu's Cheesecake (てつおじさんのチーズケーキ) at Summerton is celebrating its latest addition to the menu. Launching nationwide on 30 October 2015, Chocolate Cake is the latest addition to its series of new cheesecake flavors.
Like the original flavor, the Chocolate Cake (チョコレートケーキ, RM23.00) is 16 centimeters cross and is punctuated with chocolate chips. While the amount of cheese is reduced to make way for chocolate, the Chocolate Cake retains the soft and fluffy texture which many customers have known and love. Similar to its predecessor, this cake can be enjoyed warm or chilled.
The preparation process of the Chocolate Cake is rather labor-intensive. To produce the fluffiness which distinguishes Uncle Tetsu's from other cheesecakes, batter needs to be beaten thoroughly so that air pockets are trapped within the cake. For this outlet, fresh eggs are used as opposed to processed eggs. This is because the former yields better aroma when baked.
Unlike normal bakeries, Uncle Tetsu's Cheesecake uses a steam-baking oven. This is to maintain moisture of air surrounding the cake, such that the surface of cake does not dry out and form a flaky layer of crust. To maintain uniform heating, the cake is rotated several times during the hour-long baking process.
During the launching day (30 October 2015), the Chocolate Cake is priced at a mere RM10.00 throughout the entire day. While stocks last, of course. For each of the next 6 days (31 October to 5 November 2015), the store offers 20% discount for the first 100 customers.
Meanwhile for lighter snacks, the Signature Cheesestick (RM8.50) is served in a convenient cup to enjoy while on the go. The cheesesticks are noticeably sweeter than the cheesecakes, but have less cheesiness. The cheesesticks are roasted and flipped periodically so that heating is uniform. The result is a crispy snack with cookie-like texture but is much lighter on the mouth.
There are three flavors for the cheesesticks. Should you prefer, you can request for a mixture of each type in the same cup.
Last but not least, Cheese Zuccotto (RM21.90) uses denser pastry and is filled with cream cheese of various flavors: dark chocolate, strawberry purée or parmesan cheese. This Italian-inspired dessert is best served chilled.
Uncle Tetsu's Cheesecake uses high quality ingredients, such as flour from Japan and cheese from Australia. Besides eggs and dairy products, no meat is used during preparation. Therefore, the food here is suitable for ovo-lacto vegetarians. In about a month's time, Uncle Tetsu's Cheesecake will be opening a new kiosk at Gurney Plaza.
