Cheesecake Factory Vegan Options

If you're in SoCal, then you've been to or have heard of The Cheesecake Factory. We received some C.F. gift cards (Thanks Van!), and wondered what our vegan options were. A bit of googleing turned up a letter sent from C.F. to a veggie that had the same question.

I recently visited a Cheesecake Factory for a friend's birthday and wrote to Customer Service to inquire what dishes were vegan. The reply came after my visit (I did accidentally eat a bun with eggs in it), but I thought it could be useful for others.

As of today, Sept. 8, 2005:

- Some salads (see more below)
- Vegetable sides

- The Veggie Burger and Portabella Burger without the bun are vegan.
- The Thai Lettuce Wraps can be ordered without chicken to be vegan.
- The Grilled Vegetable Pizza without cheese is vegan (no eggs in the crust).
- All salads can be ordered without meat. The following dressings do not contain eggs (ask about dairy): Chinese, Cilantro, Citrus Vinaigrette, Japanese, Vinaigrette, Lime Vinaigrette, Peanut Vinaigrette, Shallot Vinaigrette, Asian Vinaigrette, Sheila's Vinaigrette.

- The Veggie Pot Pie has a vegan filling but the crust has eggs in it.
- The Avocado Eggrolls are sealed with an egg wash.
- Sweet Corn Tamale Cakes are made with Heavy Cream and they're served with a Tomotillo Cream Sauce that contains chicken broth.
I am also told that the Veggie Stirfry contains fish sauce, so stay clear if you're not sure.

Happy eating.

Edit: We visited the Cheesecake Factory today. The one closest to us (Fashion Island) does not have a vegetable pizza, however, they were very gracious in creating one for us. Also, the all pasta contains egg.

My friend works there and he told me that their balsamic dressing and the dressing on the chinese salad have BEEF BROTH (ewwww!) in it. I'm not as internet savy as you. Please spread the word!

I have actually developed my mailing list of addresses for Christmas like the video clip reveals using MS word 2010 without problems.
I could publish one label each page or I could print the exact same
label on the web page 30 times. I should print
my list of various address on the page so I
have 30 various tags to mail. I can easily not receive that done in the tag section.

If I print with the regular going to file,
then print, I acquire the file to publish out but not formatted for the type
of tags I am utilizing. I just do not see how I can do the different address tags to print in the tag tab.

Thank you,.

Actually, the pasta does not contain egg itself, but the parmesan-romano mixture used in most of their pasta sauces does. It can be omitted from most of the recipes upon request. However, the pizza crust does contain egg. There is a downloadable allergen menu which, although not updated recently, lists every item offered at the time of its creation. Some managers can be misinformed, it's best to go to the corporate source whenever possible for the most accurate info. Thank you!

Evelyn's Favorite Pasta is definitely not vegan. I've asked waiters there in the past if it was vegan and was assured that it was. Last night I decided to check again, only this time I said that I had a severe dairy allergy.

The server initially said he thought everything was prepared in olive oil. After checking with the chef, though, he told me that the pesto is in fact made with butter. The chef then made my pasta without it.
