More Life Happens at CHILI’S!

Chili’s, a much popular restaurant which started in Dallas, Texas 35 years ago, is conquering the Philippines palate since 1996. With their several branches all over the country, Chili’s is offering more than just the good old American dishes  but also some local favorites with a flavorful twists of the States-side. 

Just over a week ago, I had the most fantabulous time dinning at Chili’s SM Megamall branch. I’ve been hearing about this restaurant for quite some time but, never had the opportunity of trying their dishes before. Whenever we dine-out with my family, my kids and wife would veer away of trying because of the stigma of the assumptions that all dishes are hot and spicy. As much as Chili’s specialties are the hot cuisine, many in their menu offers the not-so-hot foods which are equally very delicious.

The following are just some of their mouth-watering samples that will surely capture everyone’s preference when it comes with western-style grilled dishes. 

Fried Quesadilla Bites, priced a very affordable P375 per serving, is an appetizer nibbles, best taken while waiting for the main course. This empanada-like dish is actually a breaded chicken sprinkled with cilantro and served with a very flavorful chipotle sour cream. 

Bacon and Chedar Steak. You can never have a great American cuisine experience without the steak. But this one is something exceptional because on top of the succulent steak are layered of bacon strips marbled in cheddar cheese. With a tag price of P875 per serving, this one is worth every buck. The mashed Potato and veggies simply go with it so well. 

Parmesan Chicken. Chicken breast fillet cooked with special sauces, Parmesan, and Monterey Jack cheeses. It’s a topping on an equally exceptional fried rice, because it’s Cilantro Rice. The rice itself is flavorful with or without the “ulam”. For the fish lovers, the chicken can be altered to Tilapia. Priced at P395 per serving. 

All of the main courses can be jazzed-up to other choices of side-dishes. This is what they call “Chilis Your Way”. The choices are Corn-cub or fresh veggies. Cilantro Rice can be exchange with Mashed Potato or Steam Rice. 

With all these scrumptious dishes, make sure to leave some space in your tummy for dessert. One of their specialty is the Chili’s Banana Bread Pudding, topped with Vanilla Ice cream. Make sure to eat it before it melts. But as for me, a little sluggish melted ice cream goes well with the bread. 

Chili's Philippines Branches: Greenbelt 5 and the Power Plant Mall in Makati, Greenhills in San Juan, Mega Atrium in SM Megamall, Alabang Town Center, and Tomas Morato and Fairview Terraces in Quezon City.
