Dinner at Chilli's Greenbelt 5

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

Chilli's to me is one of those restos I go on very special occasions, the hefty price tags on the food is why. But on special occasions (re: a very good shoot and jobs well done) I wouldn't mind it though.

I've been suffering from a sudden appetite decrease though (oh dear) so we decided to keep dinner light, skipping the greasy fajitas and opting salad and quesadillas instead:

Boneless Buffalo Chicken salad (Php 215.00 for a regular serving) with pico de gallo, crumbled blue cheese, bacon, and tortilla crisps with crispy chicken breast and with Ranch sauce on the side (aside from the drizzling of chipotle-ranch dressing). I like the chicken part and ended up getting like 60% of it more than the greens. :)

The Fajita Quesadillas (Php 355.00 for chicken) were served with fresh pico de gallo and sour cream but were good as is.

Melt-in-the-mouth cheeses and chicken. I just had two of these because I bonded with:

Strawberry Top Shelf Margarita. Yum yum yum. I wasn't able to taste alcohol with this. It was just like drinking strawberry shake but I felt the kick halfway to the glass but maybe cos I havent been drinking in a while. The red crystalline stuff is actually colored sugar. :) Cost is Php275. I'll get back to you on the costs of the salad and quesadilla.

Servingwise, what we got is for 2-3 people. In fact, we took the quesadilla home and popped it in the oven for breakfast.

If you're wondering why I got my right hand bandaged, I had a luggage-cleaning accident where I accidentally sprained my hand when I tried prying something out. It kinda hurt at first but the pain was bothersome towards the end of the day so I immobilized and bandaged it to prevent further injury. It's a bit okay now, just can't move much so as not to exacerbate the pain.

So far so full. :) Not to mention really good ambiance. If you got kids with you, they also give kids art sets to play with while they're bored.
