Look like Uncle Tetsu’s Cheesecake has some competition. The cashier tells me that Pablo is from Osaka but there are stores in all major cities in Japan. It seems like a very similar proposition as Uncle Tetsu’s: a light Japanese cheesecake, not too sweet, sold in large varieties and small tarts.
I couldn’t NOT try one, so went for the matcha tart. It was not what I expected: more of a gooey custard than the light cheesecake that I know from Uncle Tetsu’s, a lovely matcha shade of green, and I have to say: delicious. They’re pretty small, and $4.50 which feels expensive, but it was tasty enough I would definitely consider buying a big one and bringing it to a dinner party. Stay tuned.
P.S. It strikes me only now, looking at the logo, that the cheesecake chain is named after Pablo Picasso.
