Chili’s is now opened in Penang. It is on the ground floor of G (hotel in Gurney Drive) and just right across the cafes in Gurney Plaza. I had been to Chili’s in KL and my children love these kinds of foods, especially TGIF. So when we have a branch here in Penang, I decided to check it out myself.
The restaurant is spacious, bright and service is good. But then, it is just days old and I am sure the trained staffs are from their KL outlets. I went to Chili’s with only my four years old and it is rather hard for me to find a meal that I can finish. Normally, we order a meal that can feed two persons because the portion is huge.
After thumbing through the menu several times, I settled for a grilled lamb shoulder. It is possibly the smallest. I love lamb and mashed potatoes. My brunch consist of two pieces of lamb shoulders that are barely cooked (I hope I don’t get tummy ache later), a huge blob of mashed potatoes with skin and generous serving of sour cream, some vege and a slice of garlic bread.
The nice thing about Chili’s and TGIF is their ‘Kids eat free’ offer. With the lamb dish I ordered, my kid get his free meal plus free drink.
He wanted fried chicken and got his three pieces of drummet (the part above the chicken’s wing) and fries.
I wanted an alcoholic drink (for brunch!) but unfortunately, Chili’s hasn’t got the licence to serve alchohol yet. They say maybe another month. So folks, if you are going to Chili’s for their drinks, you gotta wait.
