The Cheesecake Factory is an American chain of restaurant offering a vast menu including a wide range of Cheesecakes. The Cheesecake Factory menu boasts more than 200 selections made fresh from scratch regularly. They are known for their big portions. It is our go-to place for comfort food. We have been to Cheesecake Factory several times now. But it was the first time that we were invited to have an exclusive dining experience at Cheesecake Factory from their Dubai Festival City branch. So naturally we were excited and thrilled.
Thankfully, as soon as we approached the reception, the receptionist gave us a table and we were seated quickly. We were warmly welcomed by their managing staff. The feeling was euphoric because it was a different experience to not wait for an hour and a half to get a table. What a relief. SIGH!! We have tried plenty of dishes from the menu before so this time we told the manager to order for us. Our server Christopher was really a sparkling soul. He was lively, amusing and full of energy and made our evening fun.
He showed up with a bread basket with butter and brought house favorites margaritas drinks to quench our thirst. Zeeshan had a Lemon Mint Cooler specialty drink which was super refreshing. The lemonade was house made blended with fresh mint and served on rocks. I had Berry Spritzer; it was a explosion of berries in every sip, the berries were perfectly blended and served over with a splash of sprite. This was the perfect summer drink.
Next, our appetizers were served which were lip-smacking good. We started off with some piping hot FRIED MAC & CHEESE, crispy coated balls served over a creamy marinara sauce. We had a salad appetizer which was their bestseller CAESAR SALAD with croutons, Parmesan Cheese and covered with their special dressing with Chicken bites. The 3rd appetizer was their famous thin crusted FRESHLY BAKED PIZZETTA, made of fresh basil, tomato and cheese with Mozzarella, Fontina & Parmesan.
We have always adored cheesecake factory for their huge portion sizes which are perfect for sharing. Two mains are easily enough for 3 people. After much anticipation our mains arrived, the most popular CHICKEN BELLAGIO and GRILLED STEAK TACOS. Both the mains were outstandingly incredible. It was a perfect combination. They were served fresh, warm and full of flavor. These palatable dishes totally had us in our first bite. Crispy Coated Chicken Breast over Basil Pasta and Parmesan Cream Sauce Topped with Prosciutto and Arugula Salad. Chicken Bellagio was decadent, delicious and buttery, creamy chicken was juicy, tender, right amount of crispy and succulent that will satisfy anyone’s taste buds. Highly recommended!!
Whereas, grilled steak tacos were literally to die for. These soft Corn Tortillas, Char grilled Steak, drizzled in Chipotle Sauce, topped with Crispy Onions Avocado, Tomato, and Cilantro, were served with Rice and Beans. NOMNOM!! If you haven’t tried this yet Dude! You’re totally missing out on something.
So after our 2 course meal we were fully stuffed and when the server asked for the desserts we glanced each other with quirky smile thinking to skip it but GOSH! How can we miss the desserts mayn! I placed an order for a Caramel Frappe and Christopher appeared in minutes with Mango Key Lime and Salted Caramel Cheesecakes. The Original will always be the best among all the cheesecakes, because it is the one that started it all. The caramel creamy and delicious cheesecake is a definite must-try for all cheesecake lovers. This luxurious cheesecake is decadent. No wonder, it’s everybody’s favorite.
We truly had a remarkable experience. The ambiance was lovely and the food option were miraculous and the service was prompt and exemplary. The Cheesecake Factory is a place you would love to go back again and again. Thankyou Rian for inviting us over for this lovely experience and for making our evening so special and perfect!
