This post was triggered by Steff posting on the German bakery in Auckland thread:
Alternatively you could try Pandoro Italian bakery, 427 Parnell Rd in Parnell (they actually also have a shop in the city centre as far as I remember). Their bread is not as good, but better than toast and they have super yummy cheesecake!
Having been deprived of even knowing about cheesecake for most of my life (we just don't have them in the Netherlands), I've been developing an addiction to good cheesecakes since 2003, and I found myself thinking, "dammit, I wish I'd known about that place in June! Or better yet, back in 2003!"
So - I really don't want to be deprived of good cheesecake experiences on any further travels, and for that I'm calling upon all of you to share with me your secret locations for the best cheesecakes in the world. Doesn't matter where in the world you had absolutely yummy cheesecake, I want to know about them all - because sooner or later, I'm going to end up visiting the same place.
So please, help out a poor cheesecake deprived Dutchie here? (Bonus points for the best cheesecakes in Brussels, Stockholm, Vienna and Sevilla, as I'll be visiting those places soon.)
Custom Coffee House
Shop 38 Queens Arcade, Customs Street, Auckland, New Zealand
A tiny little tea and coffee shop, which only very rarely has cheesecake in (once a month, maybe?) - but when they do, oh my... Best cheesecake EVAR! So ultimately rich and creamy and solid and tasty - you'll be lingering over the last crumb for hours.
Stony Creek, Grampians Road, Halls Gap, Victoria, Australia
Their menu lists their cheesecake like this: "Slightly warmed vanilla baked cheese cake served with a scrumptious hot caramel sauce and garnished with Chantilly cream and fresh fruit."...and damn, that hot caramel sauce is a stroke of pure fscking genius!
