D9 Cakery is the reincarnation of Checkers Deli, the in-house patisserie of Hilton Hotel. They've been renowned for their luscious cheesecakes for as long as I can remember. The bakery is now spiffier, and in addition to the classic American cheesecake, they now offer up to 8 variants of their bestseller, but my take is to stick to the classic; I didn't think their fruity variants were as outstanding. A tip here for the peck-ish, they've complimentary truffles and pralines for sampling!! Hur!! (In case you can't tell, the cheapo Singaporean in me is whooping for joy right now)
The Pineapple Cheesecake ($8) fusion was a little odd, and I thought the pineapple overwhelmed the delicate flavour of the cheese.
The Blueberry Cheesecake ($8) fared better; the blueberry accents were complementary rather than competitive.
