Cheesecake Factory @ Buffalo

Any trip to buffalo is incomplete without a meal at Cheesecake Factory. Possibly one of my favourite American chain restaurant, this place offers a diverse menu at reasonable prices. I've also been quite impressed with the quality of the food. And of course, the biggest draw for me is the cheesecake, which I really cannot get enough of.
The other thing that I can't get enough of from Cheesecake Factory: pumpernickel bread. My first experience sampling this bread was at this restaurant, and ever since then, I always look forward to it every time I come. Nothing satisfies me more than warm and delicious bread served with butter. The pumpkin seed garnish added a great crunch to this wonderful start of my meal.
The description of The Navajo really enticed me: Warm Fry-Bread Stuffed with Grilled Chicken, Avocado, Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion and Mayonnaise. My undying obsession with sandwiches compelled me to order this sandwich. After all, I've never had one with fried bread (yes I know it's unhealthy)! To balance it out a little, we got it with a side green salad, drizzled with a simple balsamic vinaigrette.
I really enjoyed the combination of the stuffing, particularly the avocado and onions. However, I found the grilled chicken to be a little bland in flavour, although it had an incredible smoky aroma. Overall, the sandwich was still good, and I liked the textural contrast of the various components. The fry-bread was very tasty and also quite filling. As always whenever I'm dining with my mom, we have to pack half of this home. 
Why is there another picture of the bread? Because I ordered more! The wonderful server was kind enough to bring me double the amount when I asked for more bread. And yes, I also packed most of it home (too much bread in one day!).
Now, it's time for dessert! Look at the selection of all the yummy cheesecakes! I wish I could sample it all!
In the end, we chose the White Chocolate Caramel Macadamia Nut Cheesecake: White Chocolate Chunk Cheesecake Swirled with Macadamia Nuts and Caramel on a Blond Brownie Crust. This is not surprising, of course, as I love everything that's in it! The cheesecake was absolutely to die for, as always! One small complaint is that there were too many macadamia nuts! We didn't pack half of this home (haha), but we did order another one to go to enjoy the next day (we got our favourite- the wild blueberry white chocolate cheesecake)! I must, once again, commend our server for the amazing service. He noticed that I picked out most of the whipped cream, and took note to omit for the take-home cheesecake. How thoughtful.

  1. I love this shop so much because of their sweets and desserts. However, my cosmetic dentist Los Angeles told me that I shouldn't eat too much sweets because it's causing my teeth to become yellowish.
