The Cheesecake Factory, Honolulu HI
Mango Key Lime Cheesecake
Originally, we planned to eat at least one meal here. However, on New Year’s Eve, the line was out the door and pretty much went along the shoreline to the other side of Waikiki. Okay, maybe not THAT long, but it was still a good two hours before getting a table. Fortunately, we did have a slice of cheesecake to go on the first night of getting there and IT WAS DELICIOUS! We ate our first few bites in the old McDonald’s by the beach since we wanted something to drink after our evening stroll and it was just too good to resist until we returned to the hotel.
The Mango Key Lime Cheesecake had mango mousse, key lime cheesecake, and a vanilla coconut macaroon crust. The mango mousse was light and the texture was excellent. That mango flavour was so good, especially paired with the creamy yet very tart key lime cheesecake. The two flavours were just so perfect together. Add the shredded coconut texture of the crust and you have got a bite of scrumptious dessert. It was so dreamy!
