One Tuesday, I was tasked to buy something for work in the Greenbelt area. With that, I left the office early to head out to Makati because knowing the traffic situation these days, I might get to the store at midnight. On the way there, I decided to call BGP Marian and Manong Fred to join me for dinner with the Chinese Adonis (who was going to pick me up after my company driver leaves). Of course the first question that came forth right after I belted out the invitation was....
Where are we going to eat???
Though we have a lot of favorites in Greenbelt, Makati City, there was only one clear candidate that night -- CHILI's!!! It has forever been the favorite of me and the Chinese Dimpol's because it's where we met (yuk). And since I introduced it to BGP Mariane and Manong Fred (as an alternative to another favorite, TGIFRIDAYS), it has been on the top of their list as well.
Of course, one of the factors why we were raring to go to CHILI'S on a weekday is their P999.00 promo. Would you believe that for that affordable price, we could share one (1) tasty appetizer and two (2) full-size entrees????
Yuh - uh... And THIS crazy deal was available for Mondays to Fridays!
So since it was a Tuesday....
CHILI'S is coming....
in our bellies!!!!!!!!!
We got to CHILI'S at about 8:00pm because the items I ordered from Adora took a long time to wrap. Even if it was a weekday, the place was packed so we were 4th in line.
While waiting, we had a LOT of fun being together. Yup. We all kept to ourselves with oily noses to our gadgets without a mind in the outside world.
Can't talk. Playing.
Isn't it nice to just play with gadgets and not minding the people around you????
FINALLY WE'RE SEATED!
Kiko Pangilinan and Sharon Cuneta!!
Annette Benning and Mark Anthony Fernandez!
SORRY! We're hungry. Ba't ba???
And maybe to shut us up, FOOD IS HERE!!!!
I always feel the need to have some veggies in my system so I ordered the CHILI'S Side Salad with Ranch Dressing (P150.00) to start off. My friends loved this because the fried wanton chips added a very tasty crunch at every bite. We loved how it meshes well too with the creamy ranch dressing.
SO WHAT DID WE GET FOR THE P999.00 DEAL???
There was a LOT to choose from for the P999 promo! You get one (1) appetizer from a choice of five (5) items, and two (2) full-size entrees from a choice of ten (10) items!
The great thing is, most of our favorites are included in the choices! So there was really no problem what to get!
And get this, the dishes come in regular portions! Wohoo!
For our appetizer, we got BGP Marian's favorite, the CLASSIC NACHOS! This is already so filling because of the rich meat and cheese toppings per chip. To enjoy the best of this nacho's "abilities", top it with a smear of sour cream, salsa, then the pickled jalapenos. MAN, you will get in trouble with your diet.
For our first entree, we ordered MY favorite, the CHILI'S Chicken Crispers!!!!
I am really more partial to this than the Chicken fingers of the competition because it's more juicy and I like the slight crunch from the breading. It's so perfect with the sweet and tangy honey mustard sauce that you dip it in. We usually get this with corn and loaded mashed potatoes.
It's like... OMAYGERRRRRD...... in a plate.
For our second entree, we thought of getting the Cheeseburger!!!
We were supposed to have this split into 4 to share but the Chinese Dimpol said he didn't feel like eating burger that night. WOHOO! MORE FOR US!!!! When we told the server to cut the burger in 3, I gave a slight snicker because I know that is near to impossible. But our waiter did not bat an eyelash and said yes.
LO AND BEHOLD. May himala and CHILI'S was able to do it.
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
That showed me.
ERICJAZ FOODIES with Team Mina in CHILI'S!!!!!!
After a LOT of munching and talking, we were able to finish everything!!!!
AND since we're already full, our true colors came out.
You know how they say that FINDING FRIENDS WITH THE SAME MENTAL DISORDER AS YOU is PRICELESS???
Well, we really got a great deal with our best friends BGP Marian and Manong Fred!!! When we were all full, we just got WEIRDER!!!
Pathetically laughing shot....
Another serious shot...
Busy with our gadgets shot...
VERY busy with our gadgets shot...
Change is coming shot....
We only put a halt on the "weirdness" when our favorite dessert arrived!
Because one order is not enough for us... He he he he he eh eh he!
The boys were hamming it up again!
We split the bill and paid about P1,200 per pair. I say that we really got a great deal considering the amount of food that we ordered and the bulge we felt in our tummies afterwards.
The Chinese Dimpol and I are so grateful for BGP Marian and Manong Fred who were instantly willing to join us on an impromptu CHILI'S dinner on a busy Tuesday night. Not only did we have the greatest of times, ate delicious food, but we all had a blast getting all weird together.
Till next time!!!!!
