Let Them Eat Cheesecake

You love being the Big Cheese. Big lover of cheesecake, that is. And while you're fiercely committed to your steady, Chinatown's Otto Cake, you wouldn't mind playing the field with a few new sweets. So take a cheesecake walk on the wilder side with one of these deliciously different treats.

Lei ChicTurning Japanese
For a mouthful of sweet cream cheese flavor minus the brick-in-your-stomach after feeling, try a slice of heavenly Japanese cheesecake. Lighter and airier than the traditional take, it's made with whipped eggs and reduced sugar, making it deliciously fluffy and souffle-like.
