#1 Birch KL @ Damansara
Opened by the same team behind Mezze and Huckleberry, new-kid-on-the-block Birch knows a thing or more about what it takes to bring our city’s socks off! Breakfast by morning, lunch by noon, and drinks by night; this place does not let down with their ample lighting, hipster walls, a little green, a little brown, yellow lights, natural lights. and cakes. Known to draw in the queue for their burnt cheesecake. Similar to their sister cafe huckleberry, Birch offers this moist sliced goodness made with Danish cream cheese topped with a burnt sugar crust which is slightly dense yet less creamy on the inside with the outside “perfectly” burned offering a new adventure to embark on!
#2 The Tokyo Restaurant @ Bukit Bintang
While this restaurant does it’s best to entice us with their sushi rolls and yoshoku- inspired food, dominating the top of many cheesecake listicles and garnering endless rave reviews is this Tokyo Restaurant which is what we’re there for about 9 out of 10 times! Filled with thick cheese topped with fresh cream is their burnt cheesecake featuring a beautifully brûléed top, courtesy of the extreme oven heat which caramelizes the crust of the cake resulting in whole lot richer and gloriously cheesier.

#3 Kohi Yatta @ Pudu
Located in a spacious lot within a Mazda service center, this pretty eatery isn’t located in an area you’d come to find floral-tasting pour-over coffees and have slow brunches with family and friends. Yet the owner of this restaurant believed that one man’s trash is another man’s gold and turned this place to accommodate not only adults but also children making this the perfect place to let loose on a weekend over their Japanese inspired menu and best yet, their version of the burnt cheesecake!
Encompassed of contrasting layers of a light and fluffy interior topped with a burnt crust, it’s luscious yet not overpowering but soft, cloudy and beautifully comforting!
#4 Pastryfeel @ Klang
Taking place as their bestseller since it made an appearance on their counter, this beauty priced at RM6.80 per slice is incredibly decadent. Moist in the center with spongy walls holding it up, it won’t take you a minute to go at it for the 2nd time.
They hear you as these spongy creamy goodies come as a whole for RM 68. Not up for just this? With a few other selections, every day such as brown pecan cheesecake, pandan gula Melaka, rainbow, caramel latte, and brownies certainly makes life way harder and just a lil bit sweeter than it already is.
#5 Wondermilk @ Publika
Wondermilk is so good, they were awarded a SUPERBRAND status. No kidding! For a cafe specializing in cakes, customers enjoy referring to their best selections as their WONDERS and their burnt cheesecakes deserve that attention. Featuring a soft and creamy version, this burnt cheesecake innates a much smokier flavor due to its charred top, making it truly a choice to look forward to. While you’re at it, give their Chocolate Marmalade and just about all the cupcakes a try, an October special that deserves its spot 4eva.

Unpretentious and homely, this quaint cafe in Taman Desa bakery cafe does an amazingly smooth job with their burnt cheesecake. Where everything is home-baked from scratch here, one can be assured lots of love and thought have been put into these.
With a smooth texture overall, their burnt cheesecake wins us over its balanced combination of sweetness and creaminess. Known to keep things minimal here, besides this trendy cake, we’d recommend you the Lemon poppy seed cake with light whipped cream cheese frosting and freshly made crispy churros served with chocolate dip. Ah, sinfully heaven in a nutshell!
