Gift Idea For Christmas - Indulge in a Queso de Bola Cheesecake from Indulgence by Irene

It's no secret that I love cheesecakes. Blueberry cheesecake, strawberry cheesecake, Oreo cheesecake, mango cheesecake, white chocolate cheesecake, dense cheesecake, light cheesecake, soft cheesecake, fluffy cheesecake, what ever form it may be, if it's cheesecake, I'll love it. 

So just imagine my excitement when I was given a small box of Quezo de Bola Cheesecake. Interesting cheesecake right? When one mentions Queso de Bola Cheesecake, the first thing that probably comes to mind is the cheesecake from "Indulgence by Irene". In fact try googling it and the same name pops up. 

Ms. Irene Co, owner and baker of this much raved about cheesecake, is also the wife of Mr. Richard Co, blogger behind the famous food blog Tales from the Tummy

Irene's Queso de Bola Cheesecake has always been one of the favorites of several foodies when it comes to cheesecakes. It's been raved about many times and the Quezo de Bola cheesecake buzz continues to spread all around, increasing the number of fans and customers who just can't get enough of it. I was more than happy when I've finally tried it out for myself. 

Queso de Bola Cheesecake (P200, 4 1/2-inch)

Beyond its simplicity lies an unpretentious home-baked goodness that gives every slice a feeling of comfort and joy. Few lumps on top brings an unevenly texturized layer that sends off a simple and charming delight to the senses. 

I tried a slice and it was heavenly. I am biased towards cheesecakes but there's a difference between cheesecakes to satisfy my sweet tooth and cheesecakes that's very satisfying. I would say it's both to Irene's Quezo de Bola Cheesecake. 

The cheesecake was rich, creamy, slightly dense yet not too heavy to consume. It has a nice balance of salty-sweet taste followed by a soft and buttery graham crust. The cheesecake tasted so cheesy, you'll immediately know that Irene certainly doesn't skimp on ingredients. Plain as it may look, its bold flavor and taste makes up for its simplicity big time. 

Also try their other best-selling cheesecake flavor, the Choc Nut Cheesecake.
