Finger lickin good!

Came here for an early dinner on Thursday and it was a rather spontaneous decision because while we wanted to have dinner in town, we also needed to be able to catch the bus back to church by 7pm so Tanglin Mall happened to be conveniently located at the crossroads for buses into and out of town.

When I first entered the restaurant, it was low lit and decorated exactly like a typical American diner. There were booth seats, big pictures hung on the walls, a bar at the back of the restaurant with drink specials and records playing in the background. The atmosphere was boisterous and friendly- the sort of place you would want to come to for a football game.

The menus were colourful and full of eye catching photographs of the food, it was so tempting to want to order everything that was available! It did not help that the booths around us were all being served with large platters of sizzling and bbq-ed items that smelled so good.

We settled for a Fajita Trio $34  and the trio was a combination of tender grilled steak, marinated grilled chicken and spicy garlic and lime grilled shrimp. Also served together was a container of warm tortilla wraps and a plate of guacamole, sour cream and salsa.

Before our Fajita Trio had reached our table, we had already been bought over by the smell of grilled meat sizzling on a hotplate and judging from the stares it got from the little boys at the next table, we were the subject of much envy. The beef was grilled to perfection, while the shrimps were marinated well and Xin gave a thumbs up to the chicken fillets.

The fun part was wrapping the meat and shrimp in the tortilla wrap and adding a dollop of guacamole and sour cream to the mix. Fold up the wrap, take a big bite and savour.

The Grilled Baby Back Ribs at $29 for half rack was literally 'fall-off-the-bone-tender' as the menu claimed. The meat was juicy, succulent and tasty with a hint of spiciness as we picked the Honey Chipotle as sauce of choice. The ribs came with 2 sides and we chose Loaded Mash- mashed potatoes with bacon bits and cheese and Seasoned Veggies  which were basically buttered steamed broccoli! Though personally I thought the half rack was a tad small, the flavour was definitely larger than life.

So Im thinking that Chilli's deserves a definite second visit especially since we are getting a 10% discount off our next visit with some promotion/offer they were having. Service wise, it was excellent. The waitress serving our table was always cheerful and efficient, even came to our table while we were eating to check if everything was alright and if the food was okay.

Headed here for a friend's birthday, we were a party of 9. The service was a little slow, but they were generally very friendly and patient (we took ages to order).

My favorite dishes were the beef chili ($11 or $7, depending on size, IT'S GREAT) and the bacon quesadilla ($22). The cheese fries should be eaten hot, lest the cheese hardens. The chips that come with the dips (guacamole, cheese etc)/ the beef chili are refillable so HOORAY.

Hearsay the southern smokehouse bacon burger was quite nice too, but I didn't try it. The bacon is caramelized, so that's pretty special.

If you're celebrating a birthday, there's a complimentary brownie on the house and they sing a birthday song for you!

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
