Tough Day/Fun Night at The Cheesecake Factory

When life gives you lemons, ask for salt and tequila! I've read and heard that funny quote several times. But what do we really do in tough times apart from literally asking for tequila and being drunk? Well, I do three things, meet up with friends, laugh out loud and eat loads of sweets! On a Tuesday night, my friends, my husband and I headed to Dubai Mall unplanned. We had a bad day, I wanted to cap it off with a good meal and some sweet desserts, so I recommended to dine at the Cheesecake Factory... again!

At 8:30 PM on a weekday, there was no queue at the reservation desk, but we were still asked to wait for 15 minutes, better than the 90-minute waiting time we had a few months ago.

While waiting, we checked out the cheesecake counter. I was drooling, even wanted to skip dinner and go straight to dessert. :)

So, after exactly 15 minutes, we were assisted to our table for four. Since we knew that the servings are huge, we decided to order one pasta dish, a plate of pizza and two kinds of cheesecakes. The frown at our faces were eventually replaced by smiles as we talked about our gratifying dinner, serious future plans and some senseless stuff that only friends could understand.
