If you’re a fan of all things sweet, you’ve probably tried Cheesecake Factory’s decadent desserts. Cheesecake aside, the popular restaurant has a slew of delicious dishes. From small plates and appetizers to pasta, shrimp, and steak, the eatery’s generous menu has something for everyone. You simply can’t go wrong with the following tried and true dishes:
Fried Macaroni and Cheese
For a savory bite before the main meal, try the famous Fried Macaroni and Cheese. Covered in a seasoned crumb coating, these delectable cheesy balls are served over the creamiest marinara. The burst of flavor will keep you coming back for more.
Thai Lettuce Wraps
A medley of delicious flavors combine in each Thai Lettuce Wrap. The dish comes deconstructed, so you can mix and match your favorite items. This buffet on a plate includes juicy satay chicken strips, along with carrots, bean sprouts, crispy coconut curry noodles, and fresh lettuce leaves. Dip your creations in three spicy sauces: tamarind-cashew, sweet red chili, and savory peanut.
Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta
If you’re craving a stick to the ribs meal with a kick of heat, you’ll love the Spicy Chicken Chipotle Pasta. The honey glazed chicken pairs perfectly with spicy parmesan cream sauce, and the fresh vegetables offer a welcome break from the heat. If you’re anything like me and love bread with your pasta, be sure to ask for a fresh basket of deliciousness with your entrée.
When you’re in need of a dish of comfort foods, you need the Steak Diane. In addition to a generous portion of steak medallions smothered in rich mushroom wine sauce, you’ll want to dive into the tasty mashed potatoes and expertly grilled onions. Black peppercorns elevate the dish, making it a Cheesecake Factory favorite.
Jamaican Black Pepper Shrimp
The Jamaican Black Pepper Shrimp is a feast of bold flavors. The sautéed shrimp and spicy Jamaican black pepper sauce are divine, and the black beans, rice, plantains, and pineapple are the perfect accompaniments. If you love spice, you’ll instantly fall in love with this dish.
Be sure to save room for dessert! If you’re in the mood for cheesecake, try the mouth-watering White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake. Or for layers of flavor, try the Ultimate Red Velvet Cake Cheesecake. It’s truly a party in the mouth. If you’re craving something rich and delish, order the Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake. With layers of flavor-packed goodness, you’ll be transported to cheesecake heaven.
