Cheesecake Factory

The Cheesecake Factory is one of my favorite restaurant chains ever! The reason why I adore this place is that they serve foods from different parts of the US and ethnic foods. I  l o v e  the quality of the ingredients used in their foods.

For our appetizer we tried the Vietnamese Spring Rolls - made with rice paper rolled around asparagus, Shiitake mushrooms, carrots,
rice noodles, green onion, cilantro and shrimp:



My meal was The Incredible Grilled Eggplant Sandwich - comes with roasted red peppers, red onion, melted Mozzarella and garlic aioli on a toasted bun. The name did fit my meal:


Mikey had the Orange Chicken - deep fried pieces of chicken breast covered in a sweet and spicy orange sauce with white rice and vegetables:


Bronsen had Garlic Noodles - made with spaghettini, shrimp, asparagus, Shiitake mushrooms, tomatoes, and parmesan in garlic sauce:

Last and not least, we got cheesecakes! To the left is Adam's Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple - creamy cheesecake swirled with caramel, peanut butter, Butterfingers
and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I'm not a big fan of Reese's, but after having a few bites of this, I changed my mind! The peanut butter cup flavor came out well with the cheesecake and cream.
To the right is my favorite, the Low Carb Cheesecake with Strawberries - graham walnut crust with strawberries and whipped cream:


If the cheesecakes from Cheesecake Factory were healthy, I'd totally live off of them! If only...

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
