What do you do after getting your mouth set on fire? Attempt to relieve your taste buds with some sweet treats, of course. Apple, Bloo and I migrated to Cheesecake Etc.
The atmosphere was completely different: tinkling live jazz music from the piano greeted us as we entered dim, candle-lit establishment. I suppose the lighting is supposed to increase the romantic appeal of this place, but it made it a bit hard to see and photograph my food! The service is quite slow; it was quite awhile before we got our water and another before we could place our orders.
Apple ordered the cheesecake with strawberries, a staple item here. I had a bit of this. The cake had a nice texture to it, with the strawberries giving a bit of extra flavour to the dessert.
Bloo and I both ordered the daily special. For that day, it was the tiramisu cheesecake. Tiramisu is one of my favourite desserts, and I was curious to see how it could be fused together with cheesecake. This, however was not what I was expecting; cheesecake in a cup? The flavour was quite passable, but the texture was a little too creamy for my taste. Maybe that’s something I should’ve anticipated in the consumption of this dessert.
Feeling a little cold and on the borderline of slipping under the weather, I also ordered some chamomile tea. The teabag was from a vendor and given to me with a cup and a small pot of hot water. Nothing much to say about this, really.
I would be down for returning here to try some of their other varieties of cheesecake as well as the original itself. I found the value relatively acceptable for this kind of an establishment, even though the service was a far cry from extraordinary. The fact that this place is open until 1am everyday is also something to take note of.
Conclusion: Andy ate a fair amount.
