The Cheesecake Factory is one of my all-time favorite US restaurants. Fabulous variety of warm breads in the bread basket, tasty food, skyhigh cheese cakes. The portions must be ones of the biggest I've ever seen in restaurants. Lately I only eat the Vegetable Salad, a huge bowl of fresh chopped vegetables and some cheese. In this case, huge is still ok. CKF does not publish the calories of their dishes, for good reason I guess. In a recent study the Cheesecake Factory's dishes topped the list of dishes with the most calories, with for example, the shrimp pasta dish has 3,120 calories. Wowzers. Same calories as 5 1/2 Big Macs. Bon appetite!
