I know it is not an actual authentic Asian dish, but Cheesecake Factory's Thai Chicken Pasta is frakking fantastic!

Bet they did this because their current menu already surpasses some novels in length.

Meh. I've had tofu french silk pie. It was a lot heavier than the regular version but tasted pretty damn good.

The Ranch House burger at the Cheesecake Factory was perhaps the best burger I have eaten. I've had bigger, I've had more expensive, and I've had more "loaded" burgers. But in terms of balance of taste, size, toppings. It was just perfect. Although I will have to go back to "The Blazer Pub" in Somers NY to be sure.

Their low-carb cheesecake, however is merely OK. I can make better at home and cheaper.

Tofu? Fried tofu is the best beer snack for me.

There's a place in Shinjuku that serves tofu cheesecake, and it's the best cheesecake I've ever had, tofu or otherwise.

1. Put snakes on plane: There's a place in Shinjuku that serves tofu cheesecake, and it's the best cheesecake I've ever had, tofu or otherwise.

I read "tofu cheesecake" in the header and it made me think it might actually be pretty damn good. Since texture and lack of flavor are the biggest problems with tofu, just add plenty of sugar and vanilla and most people probably couldn't tell the difference from real cheesecake.

we could use several more pan-asian chain restaurants.

Screw this restaurant and their reservations policy.

Few places are worth waiting an hour for a table for. And yours ain't one of them.

I and my Godiva chocolate cheesecake would like to disagree. I guess I could just get the cake and leave, without eating, as the food is decent not exceptional. Though I live an hour away, and coming there to pick 1 cheesecake up seems wrong.

FTA: "This is the first new concept for Cheesecake Factory since 1999, when it launched Grand Lux, an amped version of the company's founding chain, which now has outlets in Las Vegas, Florida, Chicago, the New York City area and Scottsdale, Ariz."

Good thing we just got one here in south Denver a few months back, at Park Meadows mall.. which just happens to have a Cheesecake Factory as well.

Maybe, if they've never eaten good cheesecake in their life, and they purchase a typical cheesecake for $5 from WalMart.

Made tofu cheesecake last week - astoundingly delicious. Seriously. Seriously.

Especially with fresh raspberries on top. Yowza.
