Remember this post I did about cheesecake? It was early on in my blogging career, so if you missed it...well, don't bother reading it. Unless you're as OCD about cheesecake as I am, then maybe read it. It was a really long post about me wanting to find a good NY style cheesecake. Otherwise, let's fast forward to this weekend. Big Daddy and I took my mom out for lunch for her/his birthdays and went to Zupas. If you haven't been to Zupas, treat yourself. It's super affordable. They have wonderful paninis, unbelievable soups, and their salads are deeelish. Especially with the fat-free raspberry vinagrette, which you totally can't tell is fat free. ANYWAY, my point is that they have a creme brulee cheesecake there. Did you just hear me say cheesecake and creme brulee in the same sentence? Oh yes you did. So can you guess what I'm about to say next? 'Swonderful. 'Smarvelous. And not just because it combines two of my favorite desserts into one. But because it is a fantastic TRUE NY style cheesecake. Just the right texture, and an amazing flavor. Once again, Zupas. Creme brulee cheesecake, tomato basil soup with orzo, salad with cinnamon almonds and fresh berries...Heaven.
