According to New Yorkers, only the great cheesecake makers and the great cheesecake connoisseurs are located in New York. Since cheesecakes were so popular in New York, they tend to claim that a cheesecake isn’t really a cheesecake unless it was baked in New York.
And one of the longest surviving recipes in New York is Eileen’s.
Considered the best cream cheesecake in town, Eileen has been offering 33 flavours of cheesecakes for the past 40 years.
Although New York cheesecakes are suppose to be pure, with no fancy ingredients, I guess, time has changed, and today, one of Eileen’s best-seller is the Chocolate Cheesecake.
While the $3.50 cupcake-sized cheesecakes aren’t filling and customers had to cram into a tiny store with only a few tables, these sacrifices are well worth it. Besides, what would a trip to NYC be without cheesecakes?
