It’s been a while…
We haven’t updated you with our latest cheesecake findings in Berlin for some time – and this will change right now 😉
We have often popped into Engels for brunch or a quick beer and a catch up with local friends, but this is the first time we tried their cake. It wasn’t the most perfect of experiences. Two German ladies cut in the queue in front of us. It annoyed me no end, but there is only a tiny window of opportunity in which you can reprimand them and we didn’t jump at it. So they ordered before us.
I had decided to get the cheesecake with a layer of something red on the top. I’m guessing a berry jelly layer of some kind. It looked amazing. There was three-quarters of it left, so I wasn’t worried about it running out. Then the pushing-in ladies had their turn. Four of the slices of my cake were cut and placed into a bag as a take away. I was a little worried, but there were still two big slices left. Surely they didn’t want those? Well, you guessed it, they then ordered the last two slices for themselves to sit and eat them in the restaurant. I was fuming. In my rage, I didn’t want them to have my cake and eat it as well, so instead, I chose the next best thing to revenge: a different cheesecake. And I have to say, it was absolutely heavenly. Much better than the other one could have been. Karma strikes again – my cake was vastly superior – in a completely different class to the plain one they stole from me!
Just look at it:
Literally, can you see the tastiness? It was so thick but light at the same time. The blueberries were tangy enough to make my face scrunch up together, but the shavings of white chocolate blended so well with the creamy middle and hard biscuit bottom that this place has gone right up in my cheesecake list. It’s not quite Barcumis, but it is a very close second.
And just because I can, here is that photo once more:
