A good cheesecake is all about the textures. A biscuity-buttery base filled with velvety smooth cream cheese and topped with fresh fruits or sauce is our idea of a perfect cheesecake. Oh, and it has to be a baked cheesecake! It sure makes for a winning dessert, don't you think so?
Our hunt for the perfect baked cheesecake took us far and wide in Mumbai. Most of them were delicious to say the least. So here are our favourite cheesecakes in Mumbai.
