First Time @ Uncle Tetsu @ Monday, June 10, 2019

Thursday 1st Feb 2018

Uncle Tetsu via Foodora, skip the queue! Such a wonderful feeling to not have to line up. :P
They opened a few months ago on main streets and had crazy snaking lines. Recently you can order through delivery services.

We order through foodora and were delighted to see a free pick up option! Some places also offer free delivery. If we were swamped at the office delivery would be the way to go, but it was a lovely afternoon and we were dropping off a parcel nearby so stopped by to breathe in the wonderful aroma of cake baking, a scent that I'm very unfamiliar with these days.

Like Hokkaido you can see the busy bees whipping up fresh batches in a small kitchen throughout the day. Made from scratch too. They take cash and card with no minimum spend, not amex though.

When Uncle Tetsu first opened there was just one flavour for madeleines (muffin like but different in texture) but now in addition to original there's also chocolate and matcha!

The cake is like wet?! insanely moist... but meant to be like that? almost mushy? I don't understand why it's so popular... at all... I much prefer my version of the japanese cheesecake.

The Madelaines wasn't wet though slightly, on the dry side (I had the original) though I could taste the honey which was nice. Andy had the choc which he said was dry and supermarket muffins are better the matcha was good in flavour, though still a bit dry.

Perhaps if we had one straight out the oven it would be different?  Or did we just go on a bad day? Might be back to try the cheesecake again, but at almost $20 that's not a risk I'm willing to take - unless I can persuade friends to split a cake with me.

Update - We went back for their cheese tart with a cookie tart, delicious. Also their egg pudding from the Melb Central store is good too, and I believe they do soft serve up there too.
