Chili's Grill & Bar @ Jaya, Petaling Jaya

My most frequented Western restaurant ought to be Chili's Grill & Bar. This brand from Texas, Dallas first entered Malaysia in 1994, and I will always remember this to be my favorite Western restaurant for dining amongst friends and family. 

Having opened its latest outlet at Jaya Shopping Centre, I made my way there to have my dinner, and also to check out one of this latest neighborhood mall.

I have always liked the ambiance of Chilli's, which gave a very Westernize feeling, and customers can opt for the normal dining area or the bar area for drinking purpose.

The arrangement of seating are pretty much the same across their outlets, and this outlets holds some big mirror and walls that comes in colorful strips, kept close to Chilli's colors.

My all time favorite has to be Triple Play, now also known as Triple Dipper. This order is good as appetizer for a few to share, or as a main meal for one or two. 

It is a platter combining 3 of Chilli's favorite appetizers, which includes Chicken Crispers, Wings Over Buffalo and Southwestern Eggrolls that comes with 3 different sauces for dipping.

The Wings Over Buffalo are chicken drumette marinated in their spicy buffalo wing sauce which is done perfectly, as I could taste the marination even to its bones. It has a very crispy texture, and well fried. 

The Southwestern Eggrolls carries a soft and crispy tortilla wrapping around the ingredients, which includes smoked chicken, jalapenos, black bean, corn, green pepper and spinach. This has always been my favorite, as the mix of ingredients blends in well with the cheesiness within, and the crispiness of the tortilla.

The Chicken Crispers are fried and battered chicken stripes. As much as it still taste good, but over the years, this has significantly dropped in its standard, as the batter coating the chicken mostly fall off the meat, and oil is visible within the batter. 

Triple Dipper. Price-RM32.95
At times I crave for their Quesadilla and at same time, would like to be a little healthy, thus I choose to have the Quesadilla Explosion Salad. This salad comes with 4 pieces of quesadilla filled with cheese, and the salad comes with grilled chicken, tortilla strips, lots of lettuce, tomatoes, cilantros, and lots of cheese. The dressing being vinaigrette gives a sourish taste, that makes you wanting for more. 

The overall salad was really fresh and I was pleased with the amount of the salad that builds up like a small mountain in the middle of the plate.

The blackberry and strawberry sparkling soda was yummy with a good taste of both. Lemonade tasted good too.

All this while, we have been highly satisfied with the food quality served in Chilli's, and the standard of cleanliness. However, for this particular visit to this outlet, we were somewhat disappointed with the quality of the cleanliness of its cutlery, whereby even after requesting for the 2nd time, we were still not happy with the stain looking fork and knife, and had to wash them ourselves before using.
