People may love The Cheesecake Factory's Bistro Shrimp Pasta, but it earned a dubious honor from the CSPI this week. On Jan. 16 the organization released its 2013 Xtreme Eating Awards list, and the shrimp dish from the popular chain restaurant won honors for having the most calories of any of the entrees.
The Xtreme Eating Awards showcases the restaurant entrees that “win” top honors for their massive calorie counts. This year's list features dishes from Johnny Rockets, IHOP, Uno Chicago Grill and others. The Cheesecake Factory's Bistro Shrimp Pasta weighs in with a whopping 3,120 calories, while the chain's Crispy Chicken Costoletta makes the list as well with 2,610 calories.
Men's Health named The Cheesecake Factory Bistro Shrimp Pasta as its top “Worst Food in America” for 2012, though the French Toast Napoleon from the same chain took top honors for 2013. While people love the dishes at the popular restaurant, everybody can typically agree the portions are enormous and recipes are laden with high calorie and fatty ingredients.
