Lovely surprise from Happy Apple, who knows I love my food and always keen to try new things. I was planning to wait until the lines die down, but luckily she didn't have to wait long in line. It's been opened for over a month, and everytime I walk past to catch my bus, no matter what time, there's always a line.

I don't think I've had authentic Japanese cheesecake before. Had those ones in Asian bakeries, and maybe a slice or two in Japan and HK, but not a whole one, so don't really have anything to compare it to other Jap cheesecakes. Cutting into it is like cutting into an overly eggy souffle. Has a light and springy texture when the knife goes through. I prefer it could since it's a bit more dense and more flavourful with the sugar and cream cheese. When warmed (microwave still works), it's quite fluffy and melts in your mouth, but it's a bit more bland. When you squish it, it springs back up (rather than become this thin piece of cake...) Maybe I'll try eat it from the box next time I buy it.
Normal New York Baked Cheesecakes are about 10x as dense. I actually prefer the standard cheesecakes since I like a dense and creamy slice (just has to be a small slice). This cheesecake is still quite enjoyable. Maybe I'll try to attempt one myself....
