When it comes to cheesecakes, nobody does it better than New York City, and when it comes to New York City cheesecakes, Junior’s is hands down one of the best. It was officially named “The Best Cheesecake In New York” by New York Magazine, and is certainly a staple of the city. There are over 40 different flavors to choose from, and if you’re an out of towner, we understand if you don’t have the time to try each and every one of them. Luckily, there are people out there who have done just that, and here are the absolute best flavors according to them.
Original New York Cheesecake
Of course, there’s nothing better than the classic at the end of the day. This should be the first one to try, as it is made with the same recipe that was originally used in 1950. The plain cheesecake is smooth, creamy, and absolutely delicious.
While this is still a more traditional flavor, it is just absolutely divine. The blueberry cheesecake has notes of brown sugar and cinnamon which help take it to the next level. This is the perfect slice that will transport you to fall in New England.
Brownie Explosion Cheesecake
Here we go, for all of you that were looking for an over the top flavor, this is it. Brownie lovers will adore this one, as it is fudge-y, cheesecake-y perfection. It is quite dense, so you might want to share this one. But how could you go wrong by combining brownies and cheesecakes?
Apple Crumb Cheesecake
This flavor combines the delicious creamy and tanginess of a cheesecake with the comforting apple crumb that will transport you to a cozy Thanksgiving evening.
Golden Fudge Layer Cake
Here’s another cheesecake that joined forces with another beloved dessert: fudge layer cake. This cake is just so good — the chocolate frosting is fantastic and balances out the moist yellow cake.
Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake
Can you say decadent? With a layer of teeny tiny chocolate chips, the chocolate mousse is reminiscent of frozen pudding and it pairs so well with the cheesecake portion of the cake.
Devil’s Food Cheesecake
This one is for the chocolate lovers out there: it is incredibly dense and so chocolatey, but in the best way possible. You might consider sharing this one, but we also totally understand if you don’t want to.
