I had a prenatal appointment today, and since Ryan’s parents are in town, they were able to watch the children, so that he could come along. Afterward, we decided to go out to dinner, to The Cheesecake Factory, a restaurant that I’ve only been to once before, and Ryan had never been to.
We splurged, and started with an appetizer–Avocado Eggrolls with a tamarind-cashew dipping sauce. I know, they sound weird, but were amazingly delicious!
As long as I was in an avocado kind of mood, I ordered The Navajo sandwich–a grilled chicken and avocado sandwich, served in warm fry bread. I had this the one other time I went to The Cheesecake Factory, and it was so good, I had to get it again. Ryan had the filet, which was also delicious, (I may have sampled it), but we both had a hard time choosing, since the menu is so extensive and diverse. You can get tacos or burritos there, as well as orange and cashew chicken, plus seafood, pasta, steaks, burgers, and sandwiches. Ryan found the diversity of the menu a little alarming at first–when you serve that many types of food, it’s hard to believe that any of them are done well. But we certainly weren’t disappointed with our food, and I’ve never heard anyone complain about a meal from The Cheesecake Factory, so they’re doing something right!
You can’t go to a restaurant with the word cheesecake in the name without ordering some, so of course I did. I couldn’t pass up the Tiramisu Cheesecake, since it contains pretty much my two favorite desserts, and it was just as delicious as I had hoped. There aren’t words to describe just how wonderful it was, so I won’t even try–you’ll just have to take my word for it!
This is definitely a splurge type of establishment, so we probably won’t be going back for a very long time, but it was very fun and delicious!
