Why I Love Chilis

May it be a date, a birthday, a barkada get-together, or a regular dinner, Chili’s is one of those restaurants that I would gladly suggest. Even though it’s a tad bit pricier than your usual diner, I keep going back because every visit has been enjoyable.
And this is why.
Bottomless Tostada Chips (p310)
THE Bottomless Tostada Chips is a staple order in any group I’m with. What’s so special about these chips? They’re bottomless of course! Whether you’re in a party of two or ten, your friendly Chili’s server would keep refilling your bucket with warm tostada chips and your bowl with a spicy tomato based dip (the creamy cheese dip is a separate order).

Besides the Tostada Chips, I love that the orders at Chili’s are larger than average and can be good for sharing (if you’re not such a glutton). They also have a good variety of dishes on the menu, from the healthy Guiltless Grilled Salmon to Mushroom Jack Fajitas to the slightly unhealthier (but no less yummy) Old Timer Burger.

Clockwise from top left: Guiltless Grilled Salmon (p585), Fish and Chips (p350),
Mushroom Jack Fajitas (p595), Old Timer Burger (p295)
Another favorite of mine is the classic Fish and Chips. From experience, it’s always served perfectly fried and to your liking. It comes with corn on the cob (which you can request to have shredded) and fries (which you can choose to switch up with more corn)
Although it sounds like I have a ton of requests, I am not your waiter’s worst nightmare (I promise!). At Chili’s, your servers will give you suggestions and all you have to do is agree to the special treatment. That’s also one of the many reasons why I love Chili’s.

    That definitely looks good, and while the prices are a bit high, they are still a bit lower than over here. One of my favorite items is the Cajun chicken pasta. Penne pasta in a slightly spicy, cream-based sauce, topped with blackened chicken. And while they aren't spareribs (boooo!), I'd still recommend their baby back ribs. They're good, and they have a delicious barbeque sauce.

    …Now I'm craving Chili's… Curse my diet…
