I think anything with the absence of swearing and some kind of tirade would make it clear to most that you copied it, yes

Why the post below then, you KING TARD!?!?! Only joking.

Re: Seek real Cheesecake (American-style)

There is a coffee shop/restaurant in Enge, it's over the road from the Ascot hotel. They have a nice baked cheese cake. I pop in when I'm passing by for a wedge.

McVities Digestive biscuits from Migros, crushed, melted butter & a spoon of clear honey does the trick nicely.

Yes, I think that's what it's called. It's a coffee bar, with cakes and tapa-ish salad bar service counter.

Re: Seek real Cheesecake (American-style)

thanks for your suggestions, i am dieing to find the real thing...

@hugh_abu - the starbucks one is an option but is not the real thing...but thanks for the history of the cheese cake. I identified my dream cheese cake as being the Jewish cheesecake, never knew the origins
@Lob - i tried to make my own but the ingredients here just don't seem to get in to the taste i know...
@marcashvin - stars and stripes don't have it in the menu but i might make a trip there for the ice cream :P thanks for the tip
@nathu - i will try the Movie restaurant - they claim to make it after a recipe since 1977
@dodger - i was drolling while reading the Bailey's cream cheesecake recipe...but i don't think i could make it because i haven't seen real cream cheese around here...
@gooner - i will try the Bhf. Enge one - thanks!
@LaurenM - never thought there is a place that sends food across the ocen , but it would be easy to go to Frankfurt to Hard Rock Cafe...5h by train..is extremly close to my dream one :P
@polorise - i have eaten Mc Vities before...you are right they might do the trick

Why Lou Malnati's of course!

I should probably add that the moms picks it up frozen and packs it in dry ice before expressing it over.

There's cream cheese (Philadelphia brand even!) in Coop Bellevue. I've seen it in a couple others too, but don't remember which ones.

Yep, we use Philadelphia - you can get that almost anywhere.

To make the base, Leibniz biscuits are good too. A half-half mix of the Butterkeks and Vollkorn sorts do the job nicely.

Coop has Philly cream cheese - if that's what you mean by "real cream cheese" I use that one and it works well. If that's not what you mean, please no one pick on me!

Re: Seek real Cheesecake (American-style)

I haven't dropped in to see what exactly they sell, but there's a place next to Jack Wolfskin, just across from the Central tram station called 'NY Foods' or something along those lines. Every time I pass it on the tram I think, 'gee, I wonder if they have cheesecake...'

Otherwise, bake it! At least you can get Philadelphia cream cheese in most Coops!

You can get pretty authentic pizza in a little place down the road from Switzerland - I think it's called...Italy....

Actually they just name every dish after a movie and cheesecake happens to be "New York, New York" from 1977.
