Still remember the craze when opening of the first Uncle Tetsu at 1 Utama? Long queue and a limited amount was instituted, people have to queuing up patiently for freshly baked cheesecakes, which take approximately 45 minutes. I always curious why peoples are crazy on Uncle Tetsu, so i google search and get to know their origin story.
Uncle Tetsu’s Cheesecake began on Oyafukou Street in Hakata and was introduced to a specialty Australian cheese. Their super soft, rich and flavourful freshly baked cheesecake spread throughout Japan faster than Uncle Tetsu could ever have hoped and has since become an international dessert phenomenon!
With all the hype, Uncle Tetsu expanded its branch across Malaysia and newly opened at IOI City Mall. Located near Secret Recipe and BMS Organic store, it is easy to find. Regarding their staff said, they have more baking equipments here so they can produce more cheesecake and customers don't need to wait so long.
After the cheesecakes baked from the oven, they have to calm down a couple of minutes before wrapped and packed. If you wait at the kiosk, you could see the cake is still wobbly with its cheesy aroma fills the air, then passed it to you while it is still warm on hand.Secret recipe of Uncle Tetsu Cheesecake
- Using premium and imported cream cheese.
- Pasteurised eggs direct from local farm helps
- Luxury milk is the most secretive weapon that creates the deliciously fluffiness taste for UNCLE TETSU CHEESECAKE.
The awesome Signature Cheesecake taste from Japan is prepared and baked fresh daily, premium and imported ingredient is selected on preparing the batter, and steam baked it to perfection. Uncle Tetsu Cheesecake comes with tantalising aroma, cotton soft & fluffiness texture!
There are 2 flavours available for Signature Cheese Cake - Original / Chocolate flavour
Size : 7 inchHow's the taste?
It is so light, soft, fluffy and fresh! Literally melts in your mouth and always leaves you wanting more. It is kind of feather light cheese cake, different with the heavy American cheesecake. I love those fluffy and soft cake such as sponge cake, this original flavour is too cheesy. *sorry i am not cheesecake lover*
But i love chocolate flavour one as the chocolate flavour is so rich but cake still fluffy. =)
Uncle Tetsu Cheese Zuccotto (Angel Hat ) RM21.90
Size : 4 inch
Uncle Tetsu Cheese Zuccotto, also known as Hat Series, is a mouth watering dessert that baked in a round bowl mold, this adorable shape was inspired by the amazing dome of Duomo di Firenze, Italy and also the skull cap worn by the Italian clerics. It is a combination of premium cheese from Australia and New Zealand.
3 flavours available : Chocolate, Strawberry and Original.How's the taste?
Each bite of UNCLE TETSU CHEESE ZUCCOTTO are full of rich, frothy, creamy texture, and it is incredibly lighter than Signature Cheesecake. Like the creamy and moisture texture with its chilled, personally think this is kinda like angel cake.
Uncle Tetsu Signature Cheesestick RM 8.50 each
3 flavours available : Chocolate, Strawberry and Original.
Yuhoo ~~ had you ever eat very crispy cheesestick? It cut sliced from the Cheese Zuccotto and baking them required additional accuracy and care to achieve perfect crisp on every sides of the Cheesestick, so it is so crunchy and bubbly.To produce the highest quality snacks, they spent a total of 3 hours in making each batch of UNCLE TETSU CHEESESTICK.
There are no preservatives or additives in Uncle Tetsu’s cheesecake, so customers will be advise to finish this within 3 days. Once you can't finish on the day you purchase, please store the cakes in the refrigerator to keep fresh.
Uncle Tetsu is the perfect treat whenever you’re in the mood for something special!

If you are foodie, might realise there are a lot of Japanese grill and bars that have been popping up across the Klang Valley in this year, specialising in skewers/ Yakitori etc.
Izakaya Kushi Raku specializes in kushikatsu, a Japanese dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat and vegetables. It is the latest hangouts in TTDI, located besides of Pickle & Fig because Izakaya Kushi Raku owned and operated by the same owner of Pickle & Fig. =) That is a huge different between Pickle & Fig and Izakaya Kushi Raku, Pickle & Fig is to offer healthy fresh handcrafted panini, sandwiches and smoothies. However, Izakaya Kushi Raku is serving the flavourful skewers and beers. There are lack of parking space during working hours, but ample of parking space after working hour.
Izakaya Kushi Raku setup as a modern, hassle-free and fun Japanese grilled bar. Adding a Japanese touch to interior design, hang up the red lenterns and bamboo at the entrance, Sake bottles can be seen on top of the rack and even the furniture is mostly custom made to bring cohesiveness to the whole ambience.
There are some unique dish in Izakaya Kushi Raku worth to gorge on, according to the owner, humbly offers skewers of chicken wings, pork meat ball, pork belly, bacon wrapped rice, beef ribeye, scallop, prawn, mushroom, cherry tomato... which you can't really find it in Japanese grill bars.
Chuka Sazae Niku RM9
So sorry that i didn't take a proper photo of it, it is actually behind of the sake. ><!!! This is an appetizer made from snail meat. Marinated in special sauce so i don't know this is snail meat until they told me, it is chewy in texture and flavourful, but a bit salty and i think it will be best paired with ice cold Japanese beer or a sparkling sake.
Eihire (Skate Fin, left in picture) RM10
It's a delicacy! The longer you chew Eihire, the more flavorsome it. I just can't stop to eat it before the food serve.
Gekkeikan Sake RM19 (per jar)
Gekkeikan is one of the world's leading sake brands and naturally brewed with contains no added sulfites.
Chicken Wings Salt (Teba Shio) RM7
Succulent pieces of meat on a stick grilled to perfection, with crispy skin. It's the simplicity of skewers but also a delightful bites.
Pork Belly Special (Bara Yaku to Age) RM7
I am so sorry that i didn't try this because i don't take pork. *paiseh*
Chicken Thighmeat with Wasabi Mayo (Momo Wasabi Mayone-zu) RM5
Cherry Tomato RM4
Grilled cherry tomato with salt only, taste the freshness and charred flavor.
Beef Ribeye with Miso Sauce (Gyumiso) RM11
Definitely this is my favourite! Indulged me with this juicy, tender and mouthwatering skewers, absolutely delicious!
Other than that, some comfort udon, soba, Japanese curry rice and tempura is also available as well as their signature appetizers as well. Seasonal special menu is available such as fresh seashells, do not hesitate to check with the owner or staffs.
Squid Stuffed Rice (Ikasaki Raisu Zume) RM27
Succulent squid stuffed with delicious mixture of rice, a sophisticated dish and i have high expectation on it, but it's a little bit salty.
Grilled Riceball with Salmon (Salmon Yakionigiri) RM7
As a Japanese grill bar, Izakaya Kushi Raku serve a range of awesome beers and sake of course! Recommended the Sparkling Sake which is very good to go with the skewers. Izakaya Kushi Raku is also one of the few bars that serves Kirin Ichiban (Oh My! i love this beer!!! it is kinda gentle and smooth). It must be a wonderful place for sake lovers. =)
Izakaya Kushi Raku is a fun place to catch up with friends and stay chill for the evening with some good foods and nice beer.

Houjicha Pudding RM 10.
Love this so so much! Made with Hojicha the roasted green tea, i always love this more than steamed Matcha. The taste is heavenly delicious, very smooth pudding texture with aroma of Hojicha and followed by brown sugar syrup, definitely re-order 123 times for me!
A wide range of alcohol available here, included beers, highball, Hoppy, Shochu, Sour, Sake, Wine and cocktails.
If you prefer to try something authentic Japanese style, try Hoppy. It is a beer taste beverage and Japanese distilled liquor, very mild till nearly non-alcoholic.

Mix Naka (Shochu) with Soto (Hoppy).
Although all are about chicken, but i had a great night with these all great foods. Recommend to you sincerely, makes your weekend night special. =P

Everyone know juicing is the easiest and fastest way to increase your nutrient intake? i think you may not be able to eat as much as the same amount of fruits and vegetables as juicing (unless you are vegetarian). Our bodies can absorb healthy nutrients nearly 5 times greater and 3 times faster when drinking extracted juices than eating whole fruits and vegetables. There are also many people do not eat certain vegetable or fruits just like me! Ok, i really don't eat vegetable except certain vegetable (3 types only) but instead i am happily to drink it. *Yeah i am weird* I dislike to chew and taste vegetable, i feel so disgusting when vegetable taste in my mouth. When blend it to juice, add on some fruits then that is another thing which i can accept it because most of the vege flavours being hidden inside the juices. LoL!
