Always seems to end up at Cheesecake Factory
We never stopped for lunch, so we were quite hungry when we we arrived at Walden Galleria. Of course, we wanted to get some shopping done first, so we spent about 45 minutes walking around the mall before heading into the Cheesecake Factory.
We started off with the Factory Nachos - crisp tortilla chips covered with melted cheeses, guacamole, sour cream and salsa with spicy chicken. The chicken wasn't spicy, but I like how the dish came with guacamole (without the extra charge). (Nelson - me too, I like the guacamole)
Farfalle with Chicken and Roasted Garlic - bow-tie pasta, chicken, mushrooms, tomato, pancetta, peas and caramelized onions in a roasted garlic-parmesan cream sauce. This dish tasted like a lot of their other dishes, so while it was still good, I'm finding all their pasta dishes pretty similar. (Nelson - at first we didn't know what part of this dish was. I looked it up and it turned out to be the pancetta. It was not obvious, but it was still good)
Pan Seared Pork Tenderloin - covered with pancetta, fontina cheese, roasted red peppers and a mushroom garlic wine sauce with a touch of cream, served with pasta. We tried to find a non-chicken dish, so we tried this pork tenderloin. Again, I didn't find anything particularly mind-blowing, but it was tasty. (Nelson - I thought this dish was pretty good, but just reading the description, it sounds a lot like the first dish. Maybe that's why the dishes tasted a little generic)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake topped with walnuts - I didn't realize that I've had this cheesecake before, and I still like it - cheesecake and cookie dough, what more can you ask for! (Nelson - Yeah, I like this combination as well!)
Adam's Peanut Buter Cup Fudge Ripple - Creamy Cheesecake Swirled with Caramel, Peanut Butter, Butterfingers® and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups® - Kitty picked this cheesecake. To everyone's delight, the whipped cream on the cake was also peanut butter flavoured! (Nelson - My favourite candy is Reese's, and tasted as I expected...good! That whipped cream was excellent. I usually don't like whipped cream, but this version is definitely my favourite.)
