Cheesy, smooth yet creamy with a subtle hint of sweetness. That’s how a cheesecake would normally taste like. Whether you prefer your cheesecake rich or lightweight, it’s hard to say “no” to this particular slice of heaven. So, where to get a slice… or more appropriately, a good slice of cheesecake? Read on and find out which places around Klang Valley in alphabetical order to satisfy your craving for a cheesecake.
1) Alanna’s Kitchen
Located within the vicinity of Pandan Indah, this hidden gem is best known for its affordable yet scrumptious Arabic food such as the Mandy rice varieties. They offer excellent choices of cheesecakes as well. Best of all, their cheesecakes are baked fresh in-house using quality cream cheese. Depending on the rotation basis, you will find different cakes of the day such as Chocolate Marble Cheese or Apple Cheese.
2) Caffé Bene
The first thing that quickly came to mind about this popular South Korean coffee chain is its signature Bingsu. But some of their cake varieties are surprisingly good. Take their Salted Caramel Walnut Cheesecake for example. The cheesecake is creamy without being overly dense. The thick caramel layer with a walnut on top gives the cheesecake a nice balance of sweetness and crunchiness. Best paired with a cup of hot cappuccino or Americano.
3) Cat & The Fiddle
Hailed all the way from Singapore by dessert chef, Daniel Tay, Cat & The Fiddle is primarily an online cheesecake store. But you can sample some of their irresistible cheesecakes at the physical cafe including selected PappaRich outlets in Malaysia. Their cheesecakes are made from quality ingredients, with some of the best ones being the “Over The Moon” (Classic New York cheesecake), “The Russian Whiskers” (mango cheesecake) and “Modern Duke’s Pudding” (Oreo cheesecake). Having tried their “Modern Duke’s Pudding”, the cheesecake is both rich and creamy that complements well with the chocolaty sweetness of Oreo cookies texture.
4) Doutor Coffee
If you prefer your cheesecake to be… well… not too cheesy, then you may like to try Doutor Coffee’s signature Lemon Chocolate Cheese Cake. The cheese cake isn’t as rich as the classic version, thanks to its fusion blend of tangy lemon flavor and bittersweet chocolate layer. Instead, it gives you a light yet appetizingly sweet-and-sour aftertaste. Finally, the crust at the bottom adds a nice smooth-like texture that goes well with the rest of the cake filling.
5) Eddie & Co. Coffee House
Here is another hidden gem in Pandan Indah that serves mouth-watering cheesecakes. If you fancy something classic, look no further than their New York Cheesecake. Here, the cake is dense, yet silky-smooth with enough cream cheese to satisfy your taste bud.
6) Jaslyn Cakes
Tiny bakery as it may seem, but the cakes here are what matters the most. Situated within the popular area of Bangsar Baru, Jaslyn Cakes deserves a thumb-up for its best-selling Vanilla Bean Cheesecake. The cheesecake is nicely baked. It was soft and has a distinctly lightweight taste with a hint of vanilla.
7) The Tokyo Restaurant
If you are a cheesecake aficionado, you are likely to hear a lot of positive buzz surrounding how delicious the famous 6th Avenue Cheesecake served at The Tokyo Restaurant in Lot 10’s Isetan The Japan Store. The cheesecake is rich and moist, while a dollop of fresh cream served on the side makes it all the more appetizing. Definitely a must-try for every cheesecake lover.
