I always see a huge line up when I'm passing by. Decided to go with my hubby and didn't see what the hype is about. It was really soft and fluffy but I'm a texture gal and was way too soft. It's decent but not worth th line up. Maybe it's more popular in Japan but its alright.
Trendy, over-hyped, small-batch Japanese cheesecakes that taste mainly of butter. Delicious butter. I can see why people like it but it's really barely worth the money ($10) or the line ups. You can get cheaper Japanese cheesecakes elsewhere.
I think the hype is way too high. This cheesecake is good but not for the line up. It definitely taste really good when it is warm but mediocre when it is room temperature or cold. Enjoy the cheesecake warm or you can find other bakeries that do a good job too.
I was in Toronto recently and decided to buy a cheesecake after seeing that the place is always lined up (not a huge line). You can only line up for one cheesecake each time. It is $10 for a 6 inch freshly made cake, payable by cash or debit only. The cake was fresh and warm when I got it but because I was full, I did not try it when it was still fresh and warm. I left it in the fridge and ate it a couple of days later cold. The cold cake was still very good - fluffy, light and creamy. It's a lighter version of the traditional cheese cakes and is not sweet. I've heard that it taste even better when fresh. I'm thinking it would be even more fluffier? So I must try them again.
I saw the store in Asia and there was no customers so I decided to get one and try it fresh out of the oven. Unfortunately, I prefer them cold. I find the taste of the fresh ones to be overpowered by the eggs in it and it was too soft/mushy for my liking. I had the chance to try other brands of this type of cheesecakes (though they were served cold) while in Asia that had similar price points and found those alternative brands to taste way better.
The one that opened in Toronto was so popular that lineups for the small place took 2 hrs avg. When I finally went, it died down a bit and was only about 20-25 mins but standing in the small area where they do the baking and the cash was so unbearably hot.
Now about the cheesecake, it is fluffy and light and so yummy you really have to eat it slowly to appreciate it in case lineups get long again. Also, it's $10 for one box, one per person so it's pretty exclusive.
i really love this cheesecake! very light and fluffy. not your typical cheesecake. the only problem is that it sells really well you have to fall in line for like an hour just to have 1 cheesecake. they have a limit of 1 cheesecake per person.
Traditional Japanese Cheesecakes made right in Toronto! They're very light and fluffy, the complete opposite of an American Cheesecake. For 10$ you'll get enough to share with four people, so they're an every now-and-then treat rather than a go-to dessert.
