While many of us are waiting for Uncle Tetsu to open up in Metrotown, there is a place that specializes in Japanese cheesecakes in the heart of Downtown Vancouver. Mr. Osmad is a small bakery counter located inside Damso Restaurant (review here) at Robson and Bute (“Osmad” is “Damso” backwards) and they sell freshly-baked Japanese cheesecakes. They have been officially open for about two months and their cheesecakes are fresh out of the oven every 30 minutes. Cheesecakes are $10 each and are 3″ thick which is thicker than the ones from Uncle Testu (“2”). Strawberry compote available for $1.50.

When I walked in a few days ago, a few cheesecakes were just sitting on the counter cooling off. They smelled oh-so-good.
I picked up two cheesecakes to try at home along with a strawberry compote. They were very pillowy soft, moist, light and fluffy – more so than other ones I have had like from Uncle Tetsu. The light cheese taste was on point.
The strawberry compote was excellent and was a perfect topping for the cheesecake.
Overall Impression of Mr. Osmad
I’d definitely be interested in having Mr. Osmad’s cheesecake again. Their cheesecakes very ultra-light and fluffy and thicker. Perhaps even better value than Uncle Tetsu. Rating: 4.5/5
