Cheesecake Factory Is Introducing Some Hot New Menu Items + Cheesecake Factory'S Chicken, Mango and Avocado Salad Recipe Inside
I absolutely love trying new and delicious recipes! Last week, I was invited to the Cheesecake Factory for an evening of tasting their newest menu items. Nestled tightly on the 1400 block of Walnut Street, the Center City Cheesecake Factory is easily spotted by their signature “The Cheesecake Factory” logo. Although this location is much smaller than the other branches, it definitely does not lack in décor, service, or the quality of food!
The night was full of light-hearted chats, laughter, and good vibes from everyone in attendance. The highlight of the evening was the hands on demonstration where I volunteered along with Lisa Grant who blogs over at JerseyGirlCooks.com (definitely check her out for some yummy recipes). Together we assisted in preparing a Chicken, Mango, and Avocado salad, which is super delicious!

As the night went on, we were able to taste every single new item on the menu! As we made our way through each dish, I fell deeper and deeper in love with The Cheesecake Factory. In the past when I came to the Cheesecake Factory, I always ordered one specific item off of the menu, the shrimp and bacon club. When I tell you that was my favorite menu item, that was literally the ONLY entree I would order. To my dismay, they discontinued the sandwich (insert tears of sorrow) but after being introduced to so many tasty dishes, that shrimp and bacon shaped void in my heart is now full.
