Lunch @ Cheesecake Factory

Can't resist stopping by Cheesecake Factory for lunch whenever I shop in Buffalo.
Delicious pumpernickel bread is always a highlight of my meal. This time, I resisted the temptation to ask for more.
To save room for dessert, my mom and I shared a Cuban sandwich: slow roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, mustard and mayonnaise on a grilled and pressed Cuban-style roll, served with a green salad. I'm not sure how authentic this Cuban sandwich is, but I wished that the bread had been pressed and grilled more to achieve a better crunch.The combination of pickles and mustard reminded me of flavours from a burger. Overall, the sandwich was pleasant, but not mind blowing.
Finally, it was dessert time! After considering all the choices, I chose the Dutch apple caramel streusel cheesecake with baked apples, caramel and brown sugar cinnamon walnut streusel. It was a wonderful combination of two of my favourite sweet treats: cheesecake and apple pie. My mom found the cinnamon overpowering in the streusel, but I absolutely loved it. However, I must say that everything together was exceedingly sweet, even when I only ate half of it. Next time, I'll consider have lunch elsewhere and coming here just for the cheesecake.
