Cheesecake Factory Center City and King of Prussia

Philadelphia, PA – With more than 250 menu items made from scratch daily and over 50 signature cheesecakes and desserts, there is truly something for everyone to be enjoyed at The Cheesecake Factory. With a location right in Center City Philadelphia and King of Prussia, you’ll have to stop in soon and try out some of their newest additions to the menu. We were so excited to stop by and try these plates, and of course you know we ended the night with lots of leftovers to bring home.

Start off your meal with a signature cocktail. The Cucumber Mojito with Hendrick’s Gin and St. Germain or a Blood Orange Martini with Tito’s Vodka and Solerno Blood Orange Liquor were our favorite sips being light and fruity. If you like something a little darker, the Irish Coffee Manhattan or Espresso Martini are sure to quench your thirst.

We never miss ordering something from Cheesecake Factory’s “small plates & snacks” portion of the menu. These appetizers are great for 1-2 people if you don’t have a larger group to share with. Our favorite new small plate is the Chicken Taquitos with green chiles, corn, cilantro, onion, and cheese. Vegetarians will go wild for the Korean Fried Cauliflower (a play on crispy Korean fried chicken) which is battered, fried, and tossed with sweet and spicy sauce, toasted sesame seeds, and green onions. If you like something spicy, try the Nashville Hot Chicken Nuggets which are served with a pickle slice and side of ranch dressing. When you’re in the mood for something cheesy, the Truffle-Bacon Grilled Cheese Sticks will do the trick with creamy melted cheese, bacon, and truffle oil on artisan bread.

For your main course, there are 19 new dishes added to the menu. If you’re looking for to be healthy the Chicken, Mango, and Avocado Salad will surely leave you full with a portion that is easily shared or substituted as an entree. This beautiful salad is piled high with grilled chicken breast, mixed greens, fresh pineapple, tomato, cucumber, red peppers, onion, crispy wontons and almonds. We even got to witness a demonstration of how this salad is made and it can easily be duplicated at home! There is also the Skinnylicious Menu featured at Cheesecake Factory which lists more than 50 signature plates offering guests rich taste for 590 calories or less! The newest addition is the Skinnylicious Chicken Pot Pie filled with tender chicken breast, potatoes, mushrooms, onions, peas, and carrots in a cream sauce topped with buttery pastry. This is surely comfort food with less guilt.

Perhaps the most unique plate of the night was the Chicken Parmesan Pizza Style. You will have to see it to believe it, the masterminds in the kitchen have actually pounded a breaded chicken cutlet flat into a round pizza crust shape and topped it with marinara, melted mozzarella, and a baseball-sized ball of Parmesan cream pasta. If you love Chicken Parmesan then you MUST get this. We also enjoyed the Chicken Riesling is chicken breast with mushrooms, bacon, onions, and garlic in a white wine riesling cream sauce with buttered Parmesan pasta.

Other new additions to the menu include the Pasta Napoletana which we’d like to call “meat lovers pasta”. This plate is loaded with Italian Sausage, pepperoni, meatball, bacon, mushrooms, peppers, onions, and garlic in a tomato sauce over Parmesan cream pasta. One of our favorites is more of a southern dish, it’s called Truffle-Honey Chicken. This chicken is served lightly battered and fried finished with a drizzle of truffle honey for the great combination of sweet and salty. Sides of asparagus and mashed potatoes make this a MUST Have.
