10 Must-Try Burnt Cheesecake In KL & Selangor

If you're reading this, chances are, you're a cake lover. (High five!) As a cake lover, there are so many different types of cakes to enjoy, ranging from chiffon to mille crepe, coming in a variety of flavours from chocolate to durian. A cheesecake is more or less considered as one of those classic cake types, with familiar favourites like marble cheese or New York cheese. Then comes the burnt cheesecake, which puts a spin on otherwise classic cheesecakes. Also known as Basque burnt cheesecakes, they are cheesecakes without a crust, and look, well, burnt on the outside, but the inside is a delightfully cheesy and sometimes gooey centre consisting of (cream) cheese, though composition and actual ingredients may differ may cheesecake to cheesecake. Drooling yet? Us too! Keep going to discover where to get some heavenly burnt cheesecake in KL & Selangor!

4) The Tokyo Restaurant

Is it really a burnt cheesecake list without including The Tokyo Restaurant on it? The Tokyo Restaurant in Lot 10 serves mains, but most people return again and again for their burnt cheesecake, which is named 6th Avenue Cheesecake. Sinfully cheesy and sweet yet kind of fluffy at the same time, their 6th Avenue Cheesecake is served with a dollop of cream on the side, and this pairing is definitely a match made in heaven.
