If you’ve ever been to The Cheesecake Factory you know that their menus are more of an encyclopedia of dishes than something to order off of. If it takes you 45 minutes to go through the menu once, you know there’s a problem.
Lucky for us a pair of brothers over at First We Feast who frequent the chain put together a list of the top 15 dishes to help us all spend a little less time ordering and a lot more time enjoying those enormous portions.
Here’s a peep at our personal favorites of the bunch:
#12 on the list is the Ultimate Red Velvet Cheesecake. This dessert is a fusion between cake and cheesecake, with layers of Red Velvet alternating with a cheesecake stripe to bring you a four layered slice of dessert hybrid heaven.
#6 are the Buffalo Blasts, don’t let the picture fool you, those actually aren’t pieces of fried chicken, it’s better. This “Frankensteined” appetizer is a spiced wrapper filled with chicken, cheese and buffalo sauce and fried until golden brown. Um, want. Now.
Oreo Dream Extreme Cheesecake is quite the mouthful taking the #3 spot on this list. This slice of goodness is full of cheesecake, Oreo cookies, Oreo cookie mousse, and chocolate icing. If you’re worried about feeling guilty over devouring such a sinful dessert perhaps the fact that a quarter of each slice of this cheesecake sold is donated to Feeding America will make you feel better. But probably not.
Top honors go to the Louisiana Chicken Pasta, the menu’s token Cajun style dish. The only thing New Orleans about this dish is the seasoning and kick, but it’s American influence is showing with that fried panko crusted chicken.
