The Cheesecake Factory has some of the best food in the country. According to Wikipedia, they operate over 160 restaurants in the United States. I personally have dined at the there several times, and it is one of my favorite restaurants. They have some of the finest recipes in the country. If you are thinking about making a visit, here are five recipes you should consider ordering on your visit.
My first recommendation is the Louisiana Chicken Pasta. I know that a chicken pasta recipe doesn’t sound like an original idea, but you need to trust me on this one. If you like chicken, and you like pasta, you need to order this delicious entrée. The official website describes this menu item as follows: “Parmesan Crusted Chicken Cutlets Served Over Pasta Tossed with Mushrooms, Peppers and Onions in a Spicy New Orleans Style Sauce.” The spicy New Orleans Style Sauce made all the difference for me. The sauce isn’t as spicy as you might think, so don’t be scared away from this dish if you don’t like spicy food.
My second recommendation is for those of you who love chicken but aren’t in the mood for pasta. You definitely need to try the Orange Chicken. Many of you have probably tried the Orange Chicken at Applebee’s. If you like the Orange Chicken at Applebee’s, you are going to love the Orange Chicken at The Cheesecake Factory Restaurant. This recipe is listed on their specialties menu and includes white rice covered with invigorating Sweet and Sour Orange sauce.
My third recommendation is the Shrimp Scampi. If you’re into shrimp or seafood, this is the choice for you. This recipe is served with Angel Hair Pasta. If you go to the official website, there is a photo of this delectable recipe!
My fourth recommendation is the Pasta Da Vinci. This is one of the most popular menu items at the Cheesecake Factory. Customers are always asking about this recipe for good reason. You can find the recipe for this delicious recipe on various websites across the internet. The menu description for this fine entree states that the Pasta Da Vinci includes “Sauteed Chicken, Mushrooms, Onions and Garlic in a Delicious Madeira Wine Sauce Tossed with Penne Pasta and Parmesan.”
My final recommendation includes another popular entrée. Evelyn’s Favorite Pasta is named after the restaurant founder Evelyn Everton along with her husband Oscar Everton. This recipe is really all about the vegetables. If you like pasta and vegetables, this may be the best choice for you. The dish includes many ingredients including Penne, Garlic, Olive Oil, Roasted Eggplant, Olive oil, Roasted eggplant, Pine nuts, Kalamata olives, Sun-dried tomato, Broccoli, Peppers, and Parmesan cheese.
If you are planning to go to the Cheesecake Factory, be sure to block out a few hours of time. I recently went there on a Saturday afternoon about 5 pm, and there was a 45 minute wait! The wait is surely worth it, but make sure you have plenty of time to eat! I could go on and on about the desserts at Cheesecake Factory, but I will save that for another article.
