Hey everyone! How's April treating you? Good I hope. Did you know about The Cheesecake Factory? Nope, this is not the old cheesecake factory but it's the real one that is imported right from the US! Well, if I'm not mistaken, I think the old one even changed it's name to Almond Tree now? Is it? Well, let's just continue about this one!
The one we went to was at Plaza Indonesia and it's always located in Food Hall. They already have many outlets besides this one by the way! Not only in Food Hall, some are also located in Ranch Market! Their outlets now are in Pondok Indah, Grand Indonesia, Plaza Indonesia, Senayan City, Lippo Mall Puri, and Plaza Senayan.
Now the cakes here are all put inside a freezer and the store is just a small stand, where you can't dine in, so it's a to-go only! Like buying a frozen cake in a supermarket actually.
For their products, they have 3 flavors and 2 sizes. There's Original, Ultimate Red Velvet, and Oreo Dream Extreme. The 2 sizes are only for the Original and Ultimate Red Velvet in 12 slices, the other is only 8 slices.
ORIGINAL CHEESECAKE (8 SLICES) IDR 660K
Yes, you have read the price right but I guess it's only natural, since the cake is imported from the US and the taste is actually very different than other cheesecakes I've ever had. It's definitely good and those who loves cheesecakes will definitely prefer this original one rather than other flavors!
Fyi, since the cake is frozen, you need to take them out of the freezer and wait for 8 hours to get the best taste. Unfortunately, we didn't get the luxury of waiting for 8 hours and just tried it after just 1 hour, though I don't know if it's unfortunate or not, cause eating this still half frozen just gives this a sort of popsicle like texture. I think I might like this even in this kind of state, so can you imagine how good it'll taste in its best state?
ULTIMATE RED VELVET (8 SLICES) IDR 770K
Out of all 3 this is our least favorite, cause we're not a big fan of red velvets but it's still super good and you know how usually flavored cheesecake doesn't taste like cheesecake or have this too strong of a cheesecake flavor that it didn't blend well with the flavors, well not this one! The flavor of the cheesecake is definitely subtle but strong at the same time, it's like each bite taste like cheesecake and at the same time, also like red velvet!
OREO DREAM EXTREME (8 SLICES) IDR 770K
Last but definitely not least, it's the Oreo heaven! Yes, for chocolate lovers, this is your dream cake! Not only does it look extravagant, it taste extravagant as well! The richness of the chocolate, oreo, and cheesecake is definitely something you won't get enough of. Like I said about the taste blending well, it's like each bite taste heavenly chocolate, yet ends with a wonderful cheesy taste! Yum!!
Again, it looks like this because it didn't get enough defrosting time..lol!
Well, I don't know if I'd spend that much money on cakes but I guess it's something I'd buy for that super special occasions, since it's just that tempting that you'd be willing to sacrifice a little just to have it. Getting this cake is definitely a luxury for me though, maybe like once a year or something? Might be more than once if I crave it too much tho..lol! For storage it's best to keep it in the freezer (-20ºC), which makes it able to last for a year and move it to the refrigerator/chiller (+8ºC) for 8-12 hours before serving and it'll last a week if you keep it there, enjoy!
