Chilis @ Mid Valley

There are two places that i normally will go to for steaks..i am referring to the US of A franchises, TGIF or Chillis.. Honestly, i find that both of them are virtually similar but when it comes to steak, TGIF offers more varieties where as Chillis stick to their Ribeye and their NY Strip Steak done in one style only.. Other then that..both of them have identical appetizers and similar desserts..Last i heard there are still very very hot rivals..But to me? You give me good steak, i eat and depending if its good, i come back..simple theory..and oh yeah..huge servings keeps me coming back too!

I talked about steak and therefore i order the steak..A nice big piece of Rib Eye cooked Medium.. I know people will be asking me why not Medium Rare (or Raw) for that matter..but i ask you why not Medium? Anyways, Medium is just fine..(RM49++ or USD 14) ..its steep but well definitely fill up my stomach to the brim! No appetizers and desserts required..A meal fit for the King..

Upon cutting into it..it does look abit Medium Rare..maybe i got lucky..although the blood sort of dominated the black pepper sauce they gave me, in colour..

Another house speciality, is the country fried chicken..A common mistake is calling it chicken fried chicken..well thats what i use to call it last time..the crispy batter soaked with the creamy salty sauce and the chunky mash potatoes..if you dont call this comfort food..i dont know what is..(RM25++ or USD 7)

Then you have their sandwiches or burgers.. Here you have a chicken something sandwich..cant remember..lots of cheese and tomatoes..and tons of fries..another artery clogging meal..ouch (RM20++ or USD 6)

Then you have a new comer, a dish that tries to lure in some more asian fans..a firecracker fish fillet that is marinated and sauced with a sauce that tastes like your bottled thai chilli sauce..(RM20++ or USD 6)

The fact is this place serves enormous amounts of food in one serving..and i am pretty sure this aint your so call one proper portion or recommended portion a meal.. So avoid ordering a main meal a person, and you probably be fortunate enough to try some appetizers and the heavenly chocolate cake..So there you go..a famous franchise..a satisfying meal..less money in your wallet..and a good solid score of 7.8 out of 10 (minus marks for being too salty, or is it me being too healthy?)

This time around i dont have the address nor phone numbers..its at Mid Valley..if you dont know where that is..you might as well not eat it..Available at almost all the big shopping centre like KLCC and etc..

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

wmw: thats a good alternative..haha..whats with this NJ business lar..New Jersey?

Tummythoz said...

Dun pretend-lar, u know what NJ stands for.
I don't spend money at d KLCC's outlet in protest of their policy disallowing anyone to get a bigger place in anticipation of the rest of the party's arrival. We were caught twice in a situation of 5pax squeezing into a place for 3.

Big Boys Oven said...

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

sid: wow you do have alot of blogs dont you..no worries..although i am a bummer with cooking..

The Cooking Ninja said...

wow! That's a big portion. This reminds me of that time my other half who decided to try out the burritos at Cheese Cake Factory in LA and the portion is humungous - the biggest burritos I ever seen in my life. It's a portion for 2 people. Yet somehow he managed to finish everything and I had to roll him out of the restaurant after that.

Bee said...

Wah you eat like hell everyday like this? I loved TGV Friday's baby back ribs, when my mother visited me in USA she loved it too. Ahh I also don't eat beef in Malaysia but I couldn't resist beef in Texas, they have the best meat ever there.

Alvin said...

have u try the tony roma (i think thats the name) in cineleisure? heard its good.

chilis a lot of nice food... the lamb shoulder is not bad n affordable.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

cooking ninja: you will be surprised how hungry men can be..thanks for dropping by

bee: haha of course not..i probably would need to find new pants every week!

alvin: thats a pity..yeah tgif jack daniel flavoured is real good..wonder if we really use the real thing to marinate would it b better? agree with you on the lamb..

leo said...

joe now u scare me...

you mean we ought to suppress our rights as consumers and take whatever shit the restaurant serves us?

I don't think so. but i guess if you're really nice about the whole thing they won't add any "interesting" ingredients to your replacement dish hehe!
