Cheesecakes might be overrated, but we still love them. Each of us have our own favourite version. For instance, some might prefer their cheesecakes dense and rich, whilst others might lean towards having them light and fluffy with an inch of cracker crust on the bottom. It is one of those desserts that we can never get bored of, especially when it is baked right.

With that being said, the Burnt Cheesecake is an on-going food trend in KL that we foresee won’t run out of style. This decadent dessert is known for its dense texture that just melts in the mouth. If you’re already salivating, here’s a list of places you can head to in order to hunt down this creamy dessert:

1. Kohi Yatta
