I’m not usually a cheesecake lover. In fact, I don’t really like cheesecakes at all. I will eat them if I have to, because there are no other desserts or to avoid offending someone, but I will never go out of my way to eat a cheesecake.
However, despite my dislike for cheesecake, this place came with a strong recommendation and I had heard that they didn’t only sell cheesecakes.
My bestie and I stumbled across this little store whilst walking through Macy’s near Union Square. Suffering from a bad case of “I-didn’t-wear’my-shoes-in-before-I-brought-them-on-holiday”, bestie decided to relax outside the store on the Macy’s couches while I went in to sus out the cake situation.
The place was absolutely packed and so there was no hope of getting a table any time soon. I was told the wait was about 30-40 minutes, and so we decided to get take-away instead.
Whilst checking out the yummy cakes in the display cabinet, I noted that many of them didn’t look very “cheese-cakey.” Some even looked -to my surprise - delicious!
I decided to go for a chocolatey cake as there would be no chance of the cake being “cheese-cakey” (I think I’ve just invented a new word). I chose one for myself- the chocolate truffle cake, and one for my friend- the chocolate fudge cake.
Back at the hotel, we decided to share the cakes. They were rich, moist and very chocolatey. Not a hint of “cheese-cakeyness”. Although the portion sizes were large and, full from dinner we couldn’t eat all of the cake, we really enjoyed the deliciously sweet dessert.
Even though I am not a fan of cheesecakes, I really enjoyed these cakes and I would highly recommend a visit to The Cheesecake Factory to anyone who comes across one!
