No. 5 - American Cheesecake from Checkers Deli

American Cheesecake

The Hilton Singapore Cheesecakes became a hit in Singapore in the late 1990s and ask anybody for recommendation, it will be none other the popular Hilton's American Cheesecake. Described by ST 50 yummiest cakes to be a hit since it was introduced in 1970s, this cake is still a winner for its undeniably rich texture.

It has this very nice buttery cookie base as well as the baked glaze on top, making it a perfect match. This is worth the every bit of $7.30 nett.

Apart from American Cheese, Hilton also has a fair selection of flavours ranging from Blueberry, Oreo, Walnut, Marble, etc and are available as a whole @ $69.55 nett (1.5kg) and UOB cardholders can enjoy a 15% off.

As of 19th Oct 09, each slice of Hilton's cheesecake cost $7.80 nett.

Taste-wise just as good as before with velvetly smooth combination of cream cheese and sour cream.

For your information, if the flavour of the cheesecake is not available off the shelf, one can write in to checkers.singapore@hilton.com and will be surprised that the hotel chefs is able to accomodate the request.

Being in the business of making cakes and pies myself, I recently tried the cheese cake at the Hilton and was disappointed as it had the same salty taste that the local suppliers of Philadelphia cream cheese had every time they sent us samples of their product. I can only assume that salt or preservatives have been added to enhance the shelf life of their product. In fact I was so interested to find out if Philadelphia cream cheese that was sold in the States tasted the same as here in Singapore that I called my best friend in Los Angeles who is a big eater of Philadelphia cream cheese and asked him and of coarse he said NO! This is a big problem with a lot of the chefs here that think that they can make Western foods. They can follow a recipe but they don't know the taste of the finished product. If it taste good to them then that must be what it supposed to taste like. Fortunately for them most of the locals don't know either. If you were to give me a recipe of a local Chinese dish then I'm sure that it would not taste as good as a local who made the same. For those of you who have been to the States and tried the Chinese food there then you will understand what I'm talking about. Awful isn't it????
