Uncle Tetsu VS Yoko Cheesecake
Food Fight! posts will be totally biased where I compare the same or very similar foods and declare a winner (or not). For this inaugural edition of I have sacrificed my health and waistline to compare two Japanese cheesecakes that are currently available in Montreal.
Before we go on, it’s important to note that Japanese cheesecake is significantly different from traditional or Western cheesecake. Japanese cheesecake is perhaps more similar to a sponge cake than a traditional cheesecake. The Japanese version is also known to be very jiggly and fluffy. I’ve seen the terms “cotton cheesecake” or “soufflé cheesecake” to refer to the Japanese cheesecake as a way of differentiating it from its Western counterpart.

Here’s a person from Japan who excels at creating edible, mini versions of food like this okonomiyaki.
I would like to try this one day. It sounds tasty. Crawfish or Crayfish are the same, just different names. This video is from about a year ago.

This video is several years old but it’s still awesome.
This is from over a year ago but I just recently found out about this channel. In this video, Mike tries out some great soup dumplings in Flushing and apparently chocolate soup dumplings? Never could I have ever imagined such a food/dessert to exist. Unfortunately, I heard the chocolate is in the form of Nutella, which I don’t like. But that’s just me as I’m sure most think Nutella is great.
