New York Style Cheesecake

I have been hunting for years for a cheesecake similar to the Vancouver Hotel, New York Style Cheesecake.

It is *creamy*, almost runny and oh so smooth.

Has anyone experienced such a cheesecake in Toronto?

I'm also always on the look out for authentic homemade fudges. Anyone know where a good homemade fudge is being sold besides the churge rummage sales in the city?

    Interesting... to me "New York" style cheesecake means a CAKIER cheesecake - less creamy, more crumby. It seems to me this type was more common 10 years ago. It was never chocolate or other fancy flavour, but always came with a berry topping. It tended to be served in big hunks at chain-type restaurants. I actually kind of miss it. Anybody know of a place serving that style - if anybody even gets what I'm talking about?

      Home made fudge? just a suggestion, try somewhere like the Pickering flea market,
      Yorkdale Mall also has a weekend food market area I noticed fudge for sale on one of the stalls

        Thanks Tom, I'll check out the mall's market.
        The Pickering market has the typical versus authenic home made fudge. My theory is that authenic homemade fudge recipes cannot be made in large quantities. No artificial flavours can compare to the taste of the sugars with butter and varying ingredients and cooking processes.

        I had found one bakery in a small town that was supplied by fudge from a local resident. Another time was a Jamaican grocery being supplied by a local woman. This was a very unique fudge made with coconut milk.

        Cheers

          You can always try Ed's Real Scoop in the Beaches on Queen Street. I have never tried it, but I know that their ice cream is all made by hand,and is absolutely amazing. I am pretty positive that the same will go for the fudge!

          Good luck in your quest.

          Thanks Goober!

          I had a friend tell me about this place but forgot about it. Now, it will be my next dining out experience.

          Cheers
