With a few days left in Vegas, I took this as an opportunity to venture out a little farther away to try other restaurants even if I was by myself. I ended up having a late lunch at the Cheesecake Factory in Summerlin.
There were two Filipinas standing just outside the restaurant’s main entrance talking about the challenges of driving in Las Vegas. From their conversation, I surmised that one just moved to Las Vegas from Manila and was worried about driving around Nevada. Her companion told her “if you could drive in Manila, you could drive here. In Manila the vehicles are two inches away from each other, here there’s distance…..”
Cheesecake Factory maintains a certain look anywhere in the world.
I loved the dark brown bread.
I was almost shaking from hunger so the minute this dark brown bread landed on my table,it disappeared in one blink. Shoot sa stomach agad.
I was the only Asian in the restaurant on that day. All puti including the receptionists and food servers.
I ordered Lemon Garlic Shrimp with basil, asparagus spears and angel hair pasta.
Hmmm, matabang. I tasted the asim from the lemon but there was no garlic taste. I sprinkled salt and pepper but they only improved the taste a bit. The flavor still has room for improvement.
My table neighbors were two white couples who have’t seen each other for 20 years. I am guessing they were high school classmates. This lady got some books for her birthday. She has some health issues too. Tsismosa ko, I couldn’t help but hear their conversations because our tables were side by side.
As the name implies the restaurant’s specialty is cheesecakes.
I forgot how much tip I gave, maybe $3.
I lingered for about 10 more minutes. I didn’t order dessert but I finished a mug of water. I imagined I was drinking something stronger than water.
I charged my phone inside the restroom. The Uber app drains my battery so fast.
It was 4 pm and a perfect weather for promenading.
The surrounding area is a bit high end.
A Tesla car is always a head-turner. The design looks simple yet elegant and stunning.
This red sports car was soooo noisy, vroom vroom. I think that was really the intention, to create noise so we look and admire how nice and expensive their car is.
I successfully avoided the cheesecake dessert pressure but succumbed to Pinkberry’s tart yogurt.
Pinkberry original flavor yogurt with mochi and cheesecake toppings. Ayyy cheesecake rin pala.
