If you’ve ever seen the Cheesecake Factory menu, you know that it can be quite overwhelming. There are too many options and the pictures in each page are all mouth-watering. You’ll probably spend a good 15 minutes just poring over the menu.
So let me make things easier for you and give you a list of the best choices:
12. Celebration Cheesecake
The Celebration Cheesecake is as festive as its name. You get layers of vanilla strawberry and chocolate cake, and vanilla mousse on top of the cheesecake. It has rainbow sprinkles on the cake and whipped cream. But let me just warn you that each serving is 1380 calories.
11. Truffle-Honey Chicken
This chicken dish is 100% worth ordering. The Truffle-Honey Chicken has truffle which elevates the dish. The honey drizzled across the breading makes it even more interesting, and the combination of sweet and salty is just perfect.
10. Factory Burrito Grande
At The Cheesecake Factory the standard portion size is anything but standard. So if you see words like “grande” on a menu item, then expect it to be truly enormous. The Factory Burrito Grande is a monster of a burrito, filled with chicken, rice, onions, cheese, cilantro and peppers. Order this if you’re extra hungry.
9. Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake
This cheesecake has chocolate fudge cake layers and in between each one is a caramel filling. But what makes it extra special is the bits of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups which gives it a wonderful twist.
8. Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich
This sandwich is served on a brioche bun, and you can choose from spicy buffalo sauce or chipotle mayo. It’s topped with lettuce, cheese and tomato.
7. Jamaican Black Pepper Shrimp
The seasoning for the Jamaican Black Pepper Shrimp is balanced and authentic, cooked in a spicy Jamaican black pepper sauce with black beans, rice, plantains and pineapple.
6. Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake
The Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake is basically the original cheesecake flavor topped with fresh strawberries. The tang and creaminess of the cheesecake is a wonderful contrast to the fresh strawberries.
5. Almond-Crusted Salmon Salad
The Almond-Crusted Salmon Salad is consist of a slab of pan-seared salmon and topped with almond crust. The salad has avocado, kale, shaved Brussels sprouts, tomato, radish, quinoa and cranberries. Each bite tastes healthy and fresh.
4. Warm Crab and Artichoke Dip
This one is definitely one of our top favorites. The gooey dip is savory cheese that brings together the crab and artichoke bits topped by lightly charred bread crumb.
3. Avocado Eggrolls
One order of avocado egg roll is never enough. You get six rolls and a dipping sauce made of tamarind and cashew. The roll is made of avocado, red onion and sun-dried tomato, seasoned with cilantro then fried to perfection.
2. Hot Spinach and Cheese Dip
This appetizer is absolutely delicious and laden with artichoke hearts, shallots and garlic. Hot spinach and cheese may not seem very enticing but don’t be fooled. This is everyone’s all-time favorite appetizer.
1. Thai Lettuce Wraps
The best part of this appetizer is you can basically build it yourself. The huge buttery lettuce leaves functions as a wrap, and you can stuff in coconut curry noodles, carrots, bean sprouts, chicken and avocado. You control each ingredient’s ratio as well as the combination of sauces. This iconic appetizer is so light you’ll still have room for dessert.
