Love all of your photopass pics, you really got some great ones!

I have to agree as well, $200 for 12 people is a bargain! Your meal looked fantastic.

I love food ! I don't have a blog other than here. FB is too social for my liking....but I can see the attraction.

You could always just try a food porn blog on Blogger

Our final meal before coming home...(the last of the food porn)

At the start of every holiday I go on, I always feel a tinge of sadness amidst the excitement and pleasure of being on holiday. The sadness comes from the fact that I know that when I start a holiday, that the end is inevitably close by as well.

In my recent trips to the US, I've found a way to celebrate the end of the holiday; thus making the end something to look forward to as well.

We've recently taken to flying out of LAX to come back to Melbourne; instead of the other choice of hubbing out of SFO via Sydney and then Melbourne. Whilst I personally prefer SFO airport to LAX, one of the joys of having a late night flight out of Los Angeles is that we can have our final meal at the Cheesecake Factory.....in Anaheim. And of course have a final stroll through the Anaheim DownTown Disney (and shopping) might also be part of the attractiveness of this port .

This trip was no exception. We had a great time visiting my aunt; and on the day of our flight we departed in such timely fashion from her place (under the guise of avoiding peak hour traffic in LA) that I knew we would have the better part of 4 hours to spend in DTD, Anaheim. To cater for this, I had deliberately packed our carry on luggage light; and ensured that between the 3 of us, we only had 2 carry-on cases when we left my aunt. Because.....when we got to the airport, we were on the borderline of acceptable carry-on weight and had acquire an extra package to take on board with us!!

I know that there are heaps of restaurants in DTD; but DH and I have a preference to have our final meal at the Cheesecake Factory.

Here's what we ate:

This is DH and my favourite appetiser! I could easily demolish two serves of this by myself. For tonight, we "shared"....and to our surprise we found that DS has also developed a fondness for this as well.



DH decided to go with the salad for entree! He was thinking of that "supper" meal that we were sure to get on the plane.



DS went for ...what else? Parmesan cheese....with a little bit of pasta on the side.



I decided to go with a burger. I was obviously not thinking about the plane supper...or I knew what I was not going to get on the flight....





This burger was probably the best of the trip; but no where coming anywhere near my expectation of a perfectly cooked burger!

I have to say that on this trip, I had two or three burgers; and one order of beef steak. In all occassions, I ordered my meat to come out medium/rare....and in all occassions the meat came out overdone and definitely on the well done side.

I'm going to have to cross that sacred cow in the next trip.....and order my meat rare! Maybe then I'll get it cooked medium, exactly how I like it!

And with this post, my TR comes to a close. I hope that you have enjoyed reading my report as much as I've enjoyed writing it.



And if you haven't noticed, I have actually started another PTR (link in my signature) and ticker....about my "might not be a might not be trip", which may (not) take place in the last week of October 2010 amidst F&W (more food porn in my (not) TR yet to (not) be ) and MNSSHP. I hope that you stop by that PTR and occassionally post a response....so that I stay on page 1 of the PTR forum !

Thanks for sharing my trip down memory lane with me.

It was wonderful going with you and your family through the whole journey of your hoilday. Even more so the small part of it when we met at the Dis meet.
So looking forward to seeing you again in Oct!

I can't believe you are finished already! I have been majorly slacking on mine. I will have to check out your new PTR, too.

All of your PP pics turned out so good! I loved reading about your trip!

We had our last meal at Cheescake Factory too, but the one in The Grove. I don't remember what we ordered (I'm not into food porn ) but I know it was yummy!

Thanks! Hope that you'll be writing your TR next year. In the meantime, I'll enjoy catching up with you in your PTR. And yes, PP was good to us this time round.

Thanks Kayce! I was just fortunate to have a decent amount of time in August to complete my PTR. It is winter here and its been particularly cold and damp; so not much fun being outside....unlike where you are! Looking forward to seeing you on my PTR...and I'm hoping to catch your PTR for December??

Thanks Trish. I feel like I've come back with more food photos than Disney photos !

I'm definitely going to end up NOT NOT going in Oct . Just waiting on DH to sort out his flight details before I end up booking my stuff.

We love eating at the Cheesecake Factory....it's become a tradition for us to have a final meal there, when in LA/Anaheim.

Thanks for reading and following my TR!
