Best Desserts in Town

Desserts…who doesn't love them? Be it the exotic chocolaty and creamy delights, or the traditional homemade dahi and barfi, we love them all. And, the best thing about them is you can eat them anytime. Also, with summer approaching, we just have another excuse to go out and get us one (or more) helpings of these little pieces of happiness! Friday talks about the best desserts and where you can get them around town.

 

Cheesecake

Even the name already has two of your best things in it: cheese and cake! So, you will never be wrong if this is one of your favorite desserts. With the key ingredient being cream cheese, the crust made with cookie dough, and topped / flavored with a variety of exquisites, you can find one in many flavors. So, even if you think you've had cheesecake, there's still a lot more to try. And, according to Friday, you can get the best cheesecake around Kathmandu in these places:
