“One of Malaysia’s unique trait is ‘Pasar Malam’. A taste of local culture from drinks, snacks, food to dessert are offered all along the lively street. This Burnt Cheesecake was inspired by famous childhood snack, salted buttered corn cup and sweet fragrance ‘Air Bandung’. This sweet and salty idea pop up as I was enjoying ‘Apam Balik’, a sweet and salty snack that are suitable for both savory and sweet palate. And soon I figure out the cooperation of saltiness from the buttered corn greatly balanced out the sweetness of condensed milk. As for texture wise, just like ‘Apam Balik’, there is chewiness, soft and tangy texture. Which eventually lead to the combination of juicy tangy corn followed by a smooth custardy buttery center with a firm outer layer of cheesecake. After all, the taste, flavor and texture inspiration all come from Malaysian snacks and drinks and it totally completed the whole variation of flavor and texture I was looking for.” – Leong Zhi Ling
