TRIPLE TREAT

This month, we’re loving… CHEESE­CAKE

CLEO (Malaysia) - - BITE ME -

BOTAN­I­CAL

Why: An­other ge­nius idea from the BIG Group, Botan­i­cal fea­tures is a green-themed restau­rant, fea­tur­ing an al-fresco like din­ing area and veg­e­tar­ian fare. The clev­erly de­signed restau­rant man­ages to make you feel like you’re sip­ping tea in a gar­den. Our Pick: The clas­sic cheese­cake is a won­der­ful, back-to-ba­sic, no-fuss recipe with all veg­e­tar­ian in­gre­di­ents. The cake is smooth and blends ex­tremely well with the crumbly crust, which still man­ages to main­tain its shape and firm­ness de­spite be­ing melt-in-your-mouth de­li­cious. VISIT BOTAN­I­CAL AT LEVEL 1, BANGSAR VIL­LAGE 2, 59100 KUALA LUMPUR. CALL 03-2201 3028.

TEDBOY BAK­ERY

Why: This charm­ing lit­tle bak­ery uses only the finest and most nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents, and be­ing preser­va­tive free, of­fers up a de­li­cious ar­ray of pas­tries and bread. Our Pick: The New York cheese­cake is rich and dense. Take a bite and you’ll taste a smooth and creamy con­sis­tency that is not over­pow­ered by the pres­ence of the sour cream. Served as a por­tion-sized square, it is just the right amount of dessert for those with a sweet tooth. DROP BY TEDBOY BAK­ERY AT 10, JALAN TELAWI 4, BANGSAR, 59000 KUALA LUMPUR. CALL 03-2202 1312.

KAFFA ESPRESSO BAR

Why: Kaffa Espresso Bar is com­fort­able and in­no­va­tive. With a vin­tage Amer­i­can-themed de­sign, they whip up an ar­ray of culi­nary de­lights from pas­tries to pasta, fu­sion sand­wiches, and large cups of cof­fee. Our Pick: Dar­ren’s Not-So-Cheesy cheese­cake is a tan­ta­lis­ing taste – not to men­tion a fun name that makes us want to keep re­peat­ing it. With a creamy, smooth and al­most mousse-like tex­ture to the cheese, it’s amaz­ingly well bal­anced out with a dark choco­late fill­ing that pro­vides a slightly bit­ter taste to the cake. The crumbly base is but­tery and crispy, wrap­ping up a sen­sa­tional palette into one. DROP BY KAFFA ESPRESSO BAR AT 97, JALAN SS21/37 DA­MANSARA UTAMA, 47400 PE­TAL­ING JAYA. CALL 03-7732 4502.
