Red Velvet Cheesecake, Finally!

Foodlab's Red Velvet Cheesecake
Php1,000 for a whole cake

I cashed in my winnings last Saturday.

It involved a previous post about a certain beer cheesecake. Foodlab, the imaginative crew that brought us this notoriously popular cheesecake flavor, really liked my sweet little article that they rewarded me with a whole cheesecake of my choice. Yay!

Php140 per slice
For my prize, I picked the Red Velvet Cheesecake, one of Foodlab's newest cheesecake creations. Described as "a nod to the original recipe with Coke Classic and red beets with cream cheese icing" (, Foodlab's Red Velvet Cheesecake debuted in Midnight Mercato on May 4, 2012 under a "weekly special" status. According to Chef Kevin Mize, this cheesecake is gaining so much popularity among the Midnight Mercato crowd that they have decided to put it on regular rotation.

The fame is understandable, in light of the proliferation of red velvet cakes and red velvet cupcakes in the local pastry market to satisfy a growing demand. I always thought that it was only a matter of time before we see a cheesecake version of it, too.

Foodlab's Red Velvet Cheesecake is as eye-catching as it is appetizing. It is deep dark red in color and has a wonderfully delicate flavor. To top it all off, the cream cheese frosting does wonders to this cheesecake, which I must say pleasantly surprised me because at first I thought it sounded like too much cream cheese for comfort. Far from it, the cream cheese frosting offered a smooth texture contrast to the velvety cheesecake. It certainly stays true to Foodlab's tradition of using only the finest local ingredients and intelligent experimentation to create unique and great tasting food.

Thank you, Foodlab!
I love love love this cheesecake.
