Chilling Out at Chili’s, SM Megamall

We went to SM Megamall immediately after our son participated in the 2016 Eye Level National Math Competition held last November 6 at the Ateneo de Manila University. We only had one purpose in mind then, and that’s to have a hearty, early dinner. When hubby suggested Chili’s, nobody objected. It took a while for us to finalize our orders as we wanted to try new items on their menu.

Kid Cheese Sandwich and Fries, Php195.00

Our 10-year-old wasn’t in the mood to eat rice, so he ordered Kid Cheese Sandwich and Fries instead. This is one of the items on the Kids’ Menu, which comes with the kid’s choice of refillable fountain drink, lemonade or iced tea. Their lemonade, he said, is sweet and refreshing. He also loved the gooey cheese of his grilled sandwich which was still warm when he took his first bite. He was hungry so he ate quickly, leaving only a few fries on his plate.

Country-Style Pork Belly, Php425.00

This Country-Style Pork Belly was mine. This tender and flavorful marinated pork belly was grilled to perfection and comes with Chili’s rice, steamed fresh veggies, and spicy vinegar and garlic dipping sauce. I absolutely enjoyed this!

Baby Back Ribs (Half Rack), Php695.00

Hubby opted to have half rack Baby Back Ribs with Chili’s classic BBQ sauce. This is served with home-style fries and another side dish of the customer’s choice. He requested for white rice as his second side dish. To be honest, his plate looks rather plain to me. It would have looked more interesting with colorful veggies. But taste-wise, hubby found it delightful.

Mango Smoothie, Php195.00

And I shouldn’t forget to mention Chili’s delicious Mango Smoothie that I downed in just a few sips. It was so good I had to restrain myself from ordering another glass.

I’m loving Chili’s more and more because we’re discovering new stuff to love each time we visit. How about you? What’s your favorite food in Chili’s?

Have Yourself a Merry Kenny Christmas Holiday Feast

While Christmas is the happiest time of the year, it’s also undoubtedly the busiest and craziest, too. Everyone’s mind is preoccupied with myriad things: organizing annual family reunions, hosting barkada Christmas dinners or scouting for a sweet date spot to celebrate the joyful season with a special someone.

Indeed, Christmas is best spent with the entire family or barkada over festive meals, endless exchange of stories and unforgettable conversations. It seems, however, that one day isn’t enough to do all of these, so how can we make the best of the holiday season? Kenny Rogers has the answer to that question. Take the hassle out of planning, shopping and preparing satisfying, deliciously healthy spreads for the family or the entire barkada with the new Kenny Rogers Holiday Feast.

There’s also the Holiday Plate (P399), a solo meal with a Quarter Roast Chicken or 2pcs Unfried Fried Chicken, Lasagna with Garlic Bread, Choco Mousse, choice of soup, muffin and a Regular Side.

How about giving your loved ones a Merry Kenny Muffin treat? The Christmas Muffins are available in boxes of six (P75) or twelve (P150).

121 Grille and Restaurant in Eastwood Citywalk

We were supposed to use my Caffe Bene GCs at Eastwood Citywalk last November 2 but were surprised to know that they have recently closed shop and moved to a different location, so we ended up dining at 121 Grille and Restaurant instead.

Cheese Sticks (solo size), Php179.00

Our 10-year old son ordered Cheese Sticks, mozzarella sticks wrapped in egg roll wraps, fried till golden brown and served with mayo dip. He liked these light and crisp Cheese Sticks a lot he almost finished the entire plate.

Crispy Pata (barkada size), Php689.00

Hubby and I agreed to try their Crispy Pata. The skin was crispy and the meat was tender, and while it wasn’t bland, it lacked the garlicky flavor that we both look for in our Crispy Pata. Good thing there’s this the spiced soy-vinegar dipping sauce that enhanced its flavor, so all was well.

Vegetable Royale, Php399.00

We paired our Crispy Pata with Vegetable Royale. This stir-fried assorted veggies and tofu with oyster sauce was incredibly delightful. It had the combination of all the veggies that I like mixed with the sweet, salty and earthy flavor of oyster sauce. Believe it or not, this huge serving of vegetables was wiped out in a jiffy. That’s how good it was!

Mango Float, Php119.00

Hubby suggested we have the Mango Float for dessert. I know that Mango Float is a no-bake cake made with Graham crackers, thinly sliced ripe mangoes, all-purpose cream and condensed milk, but I’m not sure if this Mango Float used exactly the same ingredients because it’s all white. As you can see in the picture, it looks really simple, but it was good! So yeah, even if I was already full, I simply couldn’t say no to a sweet and delicious treat that had one of my most favorite fruits in it.

While everyone was having a Halloween celebration around Eastwood Citywalk, all three of us were seated cozily inside 121 Grille and Restaurant enjoying our hearty dinner. If you happen to be in Eastwood Citywalk and are in the mood for Filipino casual dining, then I suggest you try this restaurant, too.
