Dubai is one of the world’s most extravagant and luxurious destinations which is why we had to eat at the Cheesecake Factory. This location is Halal which means pork isn’t served, so any menu item that would normally include pork, has been changed to either beef or chicken. We thought it would be fun to try the Chicken Bellagio because the dish includes prosciutto. Usually in the states the prosciutto would be pork but here it has been changed to beef prosciutto which is very exciting!
