Best Cheese Cake

In the past few months, I have been seeing this photo frequently on social media and everyone who has eaten it says that it is the best cheese cake in KL. Since I love to eat cheese and cheese cakes, I went and tried it for myself with my family. 

This baked cheese cake has at least 2 different textures, soft in the middle and firm at the sides. The cheese taste is not overly strong but is very creamy cheesy and when eaten with the cold whipped cream, it tastes so delicious that there is no doubt this is the best cheese cake that everyone in town is talking about. But be warned, if one attempts to eat it all by oneself, it may be cloying. 3 of us shared this slice. At MYR18+ (6% GST making it MYR19.10 nett), the price is reasonable and I may never want to have other cheese cakes anymore after tasting this one.

As we needed savoury food before we eat the slice of cheese cake, we ordered food from the lunch set menu - the sushi roll platter at MYR38+ (MYR40.30 nett) to share. We also added on MYR3+ (MYR3.20 nett) for a cup of Americano (no photo).

The other item from the lunch set that we ordered to share: Sauteed Salmon at MYR50+ (MYR53 nett). A plate of rice and a bowl of soup are included in this lunch set. Added on MYR3+ (MYR3.20 nett) for a cup of green tea.

This bowl of soup is so delicious that we end up brainstorming about the ingredients to reproduce this soup at home. All I know is that it has eggs and suspect maybe shitake mushrooms too.

This best cheese cake in KL can be found at The Tokyo Restaurant, Isetan, Lot 10. It is located in the same area as Anzu.

Total bill for lunch is MYR118.70 nett for 3 pax so it is around MYR40 nett per person. Not too high because we only ordered 2 main meals to share instead of 3.

I like the cheese cake so much that I went again with my friends who like cheese cake to have dinner here one day after work just to let them try the cake. All 3 of us shared a slice of the cheese cake and two main meals. There is no dinner set menu so we ordered from the ala carte menu.

Tatsuta Age - MYR29+ (MYR30.75 nett) with potato in mayo. From the results of an online search, Tatsuta Age is a Japanese style fried chicken dish that uses potato starch instead of wheat flour. Since it uses potato starch which is gluten-free, this fried chicken dish could be eaten by those who are gluten sensitive.

A cup of latte at MYR12+ (MYR12.70 nett). It is a bit bitter with strong coffee taste (I am not a coffee person).

Sauteed Salmon again at MYR50+ (MYR53 nett). This time because it is not a set, there is no rice and no soup for the same price so for better value, have lunch here instead of dinner or like many others, just eat the cheese cake and do not order any main meals.

The Assam Tea (no photo) is just black tea from Assam, India. I thought it was Assam as in Assam Jawa (Tamarind) so I thought the tea would taste a bit sour but then it turned out to be just black tea. This shows that I am not a tea person because a tea person would know all there is to know about tea. :)

Total bill is MYR126.15 nett for 3 pax. More expensive than lunch because the lunch sets charge only an add-on price of MYR3+ for each drink. Again we ordered 2 main meals to be shared by 3 persons so the average price per person is about MYR42 (not too high).

  1. I agree with you as I've been seeing this cheesecake all over my FB feeds too but I have yet to try it as I don't go to Lot 10 unless there is something urgent or important to do there :(

  3. RM18.00!!! * faints* Thank goodness I'm not into this kind of cheesecakes, rather rich - not something I would look forward to. Having said that, the food here sure looks very good. Potato starch? I wish they would do that here - gluten free so my girl can order that!

    1. That is not the most expensive slice of cake in kl. MYR18 shared by 3 is only MYR6 each so price is not too high.

  7. Is the cheese cake good?? Look creamy and soft to me. I love cheese cake.

    That was nice to take sushi platter before having the cheesecake. Agreed, too much of cheesecake could be too heavy. I only can take a slice or shared. Not too much.

  9. That cheesecake looks almost like a solid wedge of cheese! Actually... can get cheese already for the price? I can't gauge how big the slice is.

    1. quite big but taste very different from solid cheese so if you are a cheese cake fan you must try this.

  10. You've got me curious about the cheesecake. It looks like a piece of kueh. It must be very rich since you find it cloying unless eaten in small amounts. It might be too cheesy for me.
