Tofu Cheesecake- Mmmmmmm

Nicole Friedman | Jul 16, 2004 03:08 PM

I'm sure that most cheesecake lovers turn their noses up at such a concoction as tofu cheesecake, but I must say that it has been my saving grace. I am not a vegetarian, but I have always hated cheese. I know, I know, but most asians eschew cheese from their diets, so I am not alone!:}
Thus, I was in heaven when I discovered that tofu cheesecake exists- when it's good, it's creamy and luxurious, without that "cheesy tang" that permeates regular cheesecake. Also, it's a tad healthier. [hopefully:} ]
Thus, I would like to ask if any of you have found a really good tofu cheesecake in manhattan? So far, I only have 2 locations: Hangawi in Korea Town [the best], followed by Teany between Ludlow and Rivington- this is the same cheesecake once found at the Veg City Diner [now closed]. I've tried several others, but they have tended to be very soggy, or with a fluffy texture.
Also, I would be curious to know if any "cheesecake connoiseurs" have tried tofu cheesecake, and have become converts? Or is it reserved solely for vegans and cheese haters? :}
