I am happy that I can write something again on my blog, just in a span of 2 weeks. That's an achievement hey! But what really makes me happy is that I was able to spend lots of time with my loved ones and discover more things about the Philippines.
Last Friday, we rode on a kalesa, visited some historical places, and had meals in Manila. For breakfast, we had our favorite pancake from Ihop in Taguig and for lunch, we went to a Tex-Mex Restaurant in Fairview Terraces, here at Chili's.
At first, it did not ring any bell, but the moment that I saw the logo and so, well yes! I know this place from some of the bloggers that I follow. And so I am glad that we picked this place simply because the menu here is very inviting. I told myself then, "It is never too late to try Chili's!"
Me and GJ likes nachos, so as an appetizer, we picked to have it and stayed on the safe zone. It is by far the best nachos I've ever had. (Though I haven't had that much yet, but still, this is really good.) Aside from Pico de Gallo and Sour Cream as their dip, there's another one that stood the most, the Guacamole dip we had as an additional for the nachos.

Salad should't be missing on the table. As part of the combo that we ordered, we had to choose from salad or soup. Why not have both if you can, right?
Those crispy tortilla strips gave more life to this dish. It's texture explodes inside your mouth as you chew them bits by bits. (I don't know exactly how to explain it, but yeah, it was good!)

And then, soup time! Last time I'm in Europe, stroganoff of GJ's mom was the best European soup I've ever had. And, nothing can still beat it, yep! Ofcourse, Ma's soup always has a touch of love and that makes it so much special. And Chili's Vegetable Soup somehow reminds me of the trip I had, every memories just flashed back to me, even it was a year ago already. Yummy!

Yes, you saw what you saw, French Fries! It will always in the side of a burger.
And the burger is just so cute. Though the size is so small, you'll be surprised that the flavor is so big!

Cute right? Yeps. It was Gj's pick. We love choosing different dishes (if it was our first time to eat on a particular resto) so we can try both without paying that much. Just being so practical! :D
Now my plate, the quesadillas. Better to try it too, it's good! Cheesy, bacony, chicken'y (there's no such word as that but yeah, who cares. Hihi.) and heavy.

The last plate was what GJ's Dad and my cousin had. A very unpredictable dish was the last one I tasted. Every flavor exploded in one, that is in case you eat it like a mixed rice in a bowl, which my cousin did not do.

All in all, this lunch is just so good! Drinks? Just a simple unlimited cold juice will always make everything sink in the bottom and a premium beer served in a frosted glass to stay chilled.
I am very happy that I was able to spend time with GJ's parents after quite some time. That was last year til February the last time we got in touch, but hey! They came to visit us! And that is super cool.

Too bad that they do not have branches near our city, or even within the city. Because if they do, well, we will definitely see couple of times. Hihi. Their weekday combos cost Php375 per meal, what a steal! Every dish was delish and sulit (worth it)!
Have you tried Chili's? Which plate is more inviting?
