Chili’s Restaurant

Chili’s remains as one of Singapore’s more popular Texas-Mexican restaurant. A visit to Chili’s on a Monday evening and it was still pretty crowded as usual.

Jalapeno Chicken Quesadillas

We tried one of their latest creations – Jalapeno Chicken Quesadillas, with onions, peppers, jalapeno seasoning and Jack cheese, served with sour cream, house-made pico de gallo and ranch dressing. The Jalapeno Chicken Quesadillas was labelled as “Wild” and that led us to expect something spicy. Our expectations fell short and we were sorely disappointed. The chicken pieces were rather bland and tasteless. The cheese didn’t add much saltiness either. In fact, the only flavour came from the peppers and jalapeno, which gave a typical bell pepper spiciness. Sadly, we also realized that the portion of Mexican rice and beans were also missing. These were one of the usual accompaniments in the original Quesadillas which we tried previously.

Grilled Baby Back Ribs - Shiner Bock BBQ Sauce

A new flavour offered for Chili’s Grilled Baby Back Ribs is the Shiner Bock BBQ Sauce – sweet and tangy BBQ sauce made from Shiner Bock Beer. We have never tried Shiner Bock Beer, but we definitely did not detect any trace of beer in the grilled baby back ribs. Regardless of that, the ribs was well marinated with BBQ sauce. The BBQ sauce was adequately balanced in terms of richness, tangy-ness and sweetness such that it wasn’t too overwhelming.   The meat was very tender and could be easily removed from the bones.
