Bread

Bread

Kimchi: Free, soft bread as an appetizer while we wait for our main course always puts me in a good mood. :pink: The wheat bread was extra yummy because it had a sweet taste to it and little oats on the outside. We came here using a $25 gift certificate I earned online haha. Since I love their cheesecake so much I was considering on only buying cheesecake with this gift card but Martini convinced me to make it a dinner date instead.

Jambalaya

Martini: There’s something about fresh tomatoes that Italian restaurants use that brings out the flavor in their pasta. The Spicy Chicken Jambalaya was no different at Cheesecake Factory. Even though it was “spicy” it wasn’t really spicy but it still had enough kick to add flavor. The tomatoes and extremely soft chicken was also great. The noodle tasted great, but my only gripe was that it was tiny bit too oily for my taste but that’s a minor complaint.

Kimchi: The chicken was unbelievably soft! How long do they cook ’em for?! That was a nice surprise. I liked this pasta because it didn’t feel overwhelming with sauce like other dishes.

Red Velvet Cheesecake

Red Velvet Cheesecake

Martini: I gotta say it right now, this thing is massive. The amount they put in this thing is enormous but that’s not a bad thing. They could have put crack in this thing and I wouldn’t be surprised, it’s that good. I’m a huge fan of red velvet and cheesecake and this cheesecake tops them all. The richness and creaminess of that one slice made me crave for more. I will get more, sooner or later probably sooner 😀

Kimchi: I have a love affair with cheesecake. And red velvet cake is one of my most favorite cakes of all time! So…as you can guess, this Red Velvet Cheesecake was the best of both worlds and it was amazing. It was gigantic but Martini and I finished it completely (with me probably eating more of it…). The red velvet cake was absolutely moist. As always, their cheesecake is tasty. Even better yet, there’s cream cheese frosting on top of the cheesecake! haha. Delicious. The only things I didn’t like were the white chocolate curls at the edge of the cake (I’m not a fan of hard chocolate in dessert). You can bet I craved this thing for a looong time.
