No dinner is complete without dessert, and no birthday is complete without cake, so naturally, after the girls and I finished up dinner at Suika, we set foot into the pouring rain and marched forth to Cheesecake, Etc.
Cheesecake, Etc. has a very romantic and antique-y atmosphere. It’s dimly lit and accented with red candle light. Occasionally, the owner can be found serenading the guests on the piano. On the other hand, service here is quite atrocious, it’s difficult to get anyone’s attention. Sometimes the staff take forever to even come by your table to take your order and forever to get the cake to you considering everything is premade. Their menu selection is small, but I usually always order the original with strawberry sauce anyway. I’ve tried other flavours, but none of them compared to the original.
A plain slice of cake is $5 plus but can range to $7 depending on the sauce. Their cheesecakes here do not have a crust, so don’t be expecting that graham goodness that most cheesecakes are constituted of. My original was light, soft, creamy, smooth and full of cheesecake flavour. Think more mousse and less New York cheesecake. If you like your cheesecakes dense, Cheesecake, Etc. is not for you. Both the whip and the strawberry sauce is homemade. It’s fresh and not too sweet. I love the chunks of strawberries in the sauce. Though it’s good, I must say that it’s undeniably overpriced.
We were all stuffed to the brim and were in a state of food coma after clearing our plates. KitKat, being the kind soul that she is, offered to drive us home. Needless to say, it was a heavy load and it probably took a lot more gas than usual to get us all to our destinations.
