The Cheesecake Chronicles: Part 2

Makani: Blueberry Cheesecake Tart

On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being scrumptiously delicious, I'd rate this one as an 8.

Hands down one of the best cheesecakes I ate in Cairo so far. The cream cheese is extremely rich and smooth (could stand to be a bit thicker though as the layer is a tad thin for my taste). The tart is topped with blueberry compote/jelly which was sufficient, fresh with a bittersweet taste that made for a mouthwatering contrast.

The crust was perfect. It was crunchy, thick and best of all not too buttery.

The only negative aspect about the tart was it being a tart not a cake. I'd enjoy eating an entire slice of their cheesecake as opposed to a small tart sample!
