Chili’s needs no introduction. It’s a mega brand that has conquered the world, one city at a time. We were invited for a bloggers meet as soon as it stepped it’s Mexican foot in Chennai and I was surprised! WHY? It was Crowded! People already knew about it. Well, a brand is a brand right?
It’s located bang opposite Escape Cinemas in Express Avenue, Royapetta. We went on a weekday for dinner and the place was crowded. OK…I might have mentioned this before but I just can’t get over it. The place is quite spacious and can accommodate a lot of people but unfortunately not a huge group as the tables and chairs are designed for at most six people to sit. Book in prior if you are going with your whole tribe. They would hopefully do some arrangements for the same.
We started our Tex mex journey with some non Alcoholic drinks ( Chennai government is cool that way) and moved on to two huge starters, two medium sized main dishes and one instagram worthy dessert.
1. Wild Raspberry Margarita
2. Chilly Mango Margarita
4. Nachos and Cheese
5. Ultimate dipper
6. Main course – Santa Fe Paneer Quesidillas
7. Main course – Mushroom Jack Fajita
8. Finale – Molten Chocolate cake with Vanilla ice cream
Since it was ‘on the house’, I am not able to comment on the price and service but it’s generally 1000 rupees per head which is…costly but Chili’s is a brand and if you want to experience some tasty&authentic Tex-mex food, this is THE place for you. It’s like getting a Tommy hilfiger shirt instead of a Max shirt because of the brand. Same concept applies for Chili’s as well.
Having been able to have just mashed potatoes and desserts in Chili’s branches abroad, I was SO happy with the Vegetarian options they have here in Madras. If I am craving for some quesadillas after catching a movie in Escape Cinemas, you would see me in Chili’s FOR SURE. I gotta start saving up some money then…
START SAVING and HAPPY EATING!
