After Dorothy's birthday dinner at Whet, of course, we had to go for more food -- namely, cake! (We may or may not have gone for bubble tea after this.... just because we are awesome like that.) Doro had actually picked Whet because it was close to Cheesecake Etc. -- we were craving for some cheesecake the whole week! I hadn't been there for almost two years, so I basically forgot what the cake was like.
I totally forgot how crowded it was too. Since it opens only from 7pm to 1am, it's usually quite busy. It was a smidge before 11pm and we managed to beat a mob of people that came a few minutes after. We were promptly lead into another room that lead to another room... I didn't know the restaurant was that big. I always sat at the main room.
This is actually going to make for a boring post since all three of us ordered the same thing: the original cheesecake with strawberries ($5.75) -- not that there are many choices to begin with. The other choices were the chocolate cheesecake and the choice of blueberry topping instead. The cheesecake her is really soft and light. Remember what I said about liking cheesecake that was firmer? Well, scratch that. I like this one here just the way it is. I do think this one is not as moist mushy as the one we had at Sweet Revenge though, so I like it more.
|Extra strawberry topping costs extra, but not whip. Kem and I couldn't help ourselves.|
|This the mess that Kem made. Yes, she did finish it actually.|
Cheesecake Etc. is actually cheaper than True Confections and Sweet Revenge! Berry Good is still cheaper if you get the combo, but I like the cake here more. Despite the long line, it's also a good place to just sit around for a long time if you're in the very far room. Service is a bit slow, but they are quite busy there. Any other cheesecake places I should be aware of? I already have Sweet Obsessions on my list, as well as Trees (the Granville one, not the Richmond Public Library one).
