The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf – the place we go for good ol’ cheese cakes! No doubt CBTL has been around for pretty long; no doubt CBTL is not uncommon and can be found in many places; no doubt CBTL seems rather commercialized – but if you are looking for simple good ol’ cheese cakes, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf is still the place to go. There are many new cafes around which offers cheesecakes; there are many Italian, French, European, Japanese restaurants offering cheesecakes; there are many unique pastry shops specializing in cheesecakes. But to us, one of our all-time favourite cheesecakes has to come from CBTL.

The Espresso Cheesecake is this month’s featured cake. And just like its cheesecake counterparts, the Espresso Cheesecake has a smooth, velvety, sticky and dense texture which we love. We simply enjoy the feeling of having the cheesecake stick to our throats as it slowly slides down towards the esophagus. The first bite revealed a strong burst of sourness of the cheese. After which, a mild bitter taste from the Espresso started to emerge. But this bitterness wasn’t too overpowering and did not hide the sourness of the cheesecake. The crust was a bit spongy though, so that added a little disappointment. Nevertheless, we love the cheesecakes from CBTL. It is always the place to go whenever we have a cheesecake craving.

Do not overlook the cheesecakes from Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. In no way will it lose out to any French or Italian bakery/cafe.
