Chili’s is definitely one of the more popular names when it comes to Western food fare especially when we go over to Malaysia since we can’t have it here in Singapore. And yeah there are more choices nowadays but Chili’s has been around for quite awhile and still seems like a very popular place to visit!
Burgers, Ribs, Steaks, Mexican – you name it and you can get it here!
|Classic Nachos (RM25.95)|
Okay we have to start by saying that this was not what we were expecting… LOL
When someone says Nachos, I think of a nice big messy pile of Nacho chips, beef, jalapenos, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, lettuce and cheese all looking gooey and stuff like that.
Well, this was a very… err… well presented plate of Nachos!
The Nacho chips were coated with some melted cheese and you’re supposed to scoop on some salsa, guacamole and sour cream and have the chips like that one by one. Well, I guess that’s one way to do it but maybe having it the good old fashioned (and more messy) way might have been more enjoyable. The taste was okay but definitely something different from the norm ‘Nachos’ we have.
|Wings Over Buffalo (RM22.95)|
Another appetizer we decided to have was Chili’s take on Buffalo Wings.
Comes with some celery sticks to dip into the ranch sauce provided as well so you get your veggie intake while enjoying the junk food LOL
Let us give you a WARNING…
These wings are coated with a buffalo seasoning which probably includes a nice big dash of Tobasco Sauce… How did we find out? When you bring the wings to your mouth to quickly, you’re probably gonna get a nice big whiff of the Tobasco in your nostrils. And THAT’S when you find out.
But besides the surprise, the wings were okay for a started. A little crispy on the outside and the BBQ flavour is really gonna awaken your tastebuds.
And another thing… they’re kinda… small.
|Guacamole Burger (RM25.95)|
Time to starts on the mains and a nice bid ol’ burger will do the trick.
You’ve got a nice juicy beef patty that’s piled on with sauteed bell peppers, fire-roasted Jalapenos, caramelized onions, cumin-lime sour cream, Monterey Jack cheese and, of course, a nice big dollop of guacamole!
For the benefit of those who might be going “What’s Guacamole??” right about now…
Well, it’s a Mexican-food must-have and made up mainly of mashed-up Avocados. Some seasoning like salt and pepper is probable and some versions even go extreme.
Well, just the simple stuff here and the beef patty was cooked to perfection. This would be a great dish for someone who really loves burgers or is just really really hungry.
|Chicken Crispers (RM26.95)|
I actually wish I had taken this dish because it looks so darn good!
Hand-battered chicken strips are deep fried to a nice crispy perfection before being bathed in sweet-spicy sauce. Served with fries and come corn… MACAM POWER LIKE THAT!!
Anyways, because it’s chicken breast and because it’s deep fried, it turned out a bit dry…
|BBQ Beef Ribs (RM57.95)|
Here’s what I had… And you know I’m gonna go for the meat right?
And even though we’d just had ribs at Tony Roma’s awhile back, I couldn’t resist to see if the ribs here were any different (or any better for that matter)
I will say that the ribs were considerably smaller but still had a very distinct BBQ flavour to them.
As you can see, they really baste it on there and you can even add more if you’d like.
Meat was tender but a little on the dry side though. But I guess I really can’t complain much because I still quite enjoyed the ribs. And the serving was actually just nice for 1 person especially if you’re going to have some side dishes to go along.
|Southwestern Grilled Lamb (RM36.95)|
This was probably the best-cooked meat on the table this time around.
The lamb was simply perfectly cooked and a nice medium well. Tender to cut and a great juicy flavour to it too!
You’ve got some Black Pepper sauce to go along if that’s your thing. Enjoy with some mashed potatoes and veggies too.
|Flame Grilled Ribeye Steak (RM55.95)|
Here’s the biggest disappointment of the meal….
We’d asked for the meat to be Medium Well but it arrived Blue.
What exactly is Blue? Well, it’s the stage in between Rare and Medium Rare. That means only the outside is lightly seared and the meat inside is still pretty much raw. You can actually see this towards the bottom of the steak in that picture above… See those raw bits?
Yeah some people might go for that but not us and it was disappointing to order a good cut of meat and have it served not to expectations…
Anyways we send it back and they cooked it a little bit more and that was that.
BBQ Beef Ribs 2.5/5 — Classic Nachos 1.5/5 — Wings Over Buffalo 1.5/5
Southwestern Grilled Lamb 4/5 — Classic Nachos 2/5 — Wings Over Buffalo 2.5/5
Flame Grilled Ribeye Steak 3/5 — Classic Nachos 3.5/5 — Wings Over Buffalo 4/5
Chicken Crispers 3/5 — Classic Nachos 2.5/5 — Wings Over Buffalo 3/5

So I guess Chili’s is actually not too bad. They do have quite a big menu so you can really try a few things if you’re looking for something you like.
CHILD FRIENDLY FACTOR
Ask the staff about the ‘Kids Eat Free’ specials they have! And yes they do have baby chairs upon request. But try and ask for a table near the window if possible because the booths are pretty crampy. Plus at least you’ll have a nice view while you eat.
