A slice of heaven
You know by now that here are Sassy, we’re pretty serious when it comes to food. Whether its dishing on the latest deals, brunches or happy hours, we always have you covered. So, of course, we had to share with you our insider knowledge on one of our all-time favourite desserts: cheesecake. Looking to find a slice of perfection? We’ve rounded up some of our choice picks for this indulgent pud and where to find it in the 852!
Gaucho – Salted Dulce de Lech and Hazelnut Cheesecake
I’m pretty sure I bring up this dessert on a daily basis (and have definitely dreamt about it!), it’s just that good. As a huge fan of Dulce de Leche, this was always going to be a winner for me and it did not disappoint! Imagine the creamiest, most indulgent caramel cheesecake, with just a hint of salt, served up with Italian meringue, milk chocolate ganache and a chocolate shard. Heaven.

Maison Libanaise – Labneh Cheesecake
Setting itself apart from the others, Maison Libanaise’s offering is actually not a cheesecake at all! Using labneh, a strained yoghurt, in the place of the traditional cream cheese, it makes for a slightly lighter dessert. With a great, crumbly base made using honey and brown sugar and the addition of a scattering of pomegranates, this cheesecake is a must try!

Carbone – New York Lemon Cheesecake
The hype is real for this cheesecake. Carbone is known for its delicious New York-Italian style fare, so if you’re heading here for a dinner of hearty pasta, make sure to save room for this dessert. A classic New York cheesecake, it’s rich, creamy and zesty. Everything you need to finish off a meal in style!

Recently opened in the 852, we couldn’t exactly do a cheesecake roundup and not mention The Cheesecake Factory! Going with the strength in numbers philosophy, The Cheesecake Factory offers up a whopping 30 flavours to choose from. From original, to peanut butter fudge and, of course, Oreo, there’s sure to be a slice here for everyone!
