The Fajitastic Five at Chili's Grill & Bar

Three strips of ribeye steak, two dollops of corn salsa, one piece of warm flour tortilla-- That's how simple yet delicious a fajita can be. Chili's Grill & Bar's Fajita Fiesta happening this August - October 2016 is bringing our Tex-Mex indulgence to the next level....let's see what it has to offer!

With a global presence of more than 1,600 restaurants across 31 countries, I am sure that Chili's Grill & Bar requires no further introduction. I remembered my first experience enjoying the bottomless Tostada Chips (They still have it now!) at Chili's and I fell in love with it since then.

APPETIZER
Beef Chorizo Meatballs @ RM29.95

From time to time, it introduces new appetizer and this time we have the latest creation on the promotional menu: A plate of soft, tender beef chorizo meatballs in honey-chipotle sauce. Nice to have this for communal sharing to keep our conversation going while waiting for the mains. 

Southwestern-inspired, classic American and Mexican dishes are aplenty here but what you shouldn't miss from 29th August 2016 to 23rd October 2016 are the 5 types of newly-introduced fajita-- a modern interpretation of traditional Mexican dish served as a taco on a tortilla. 

LATEST ON THE MENU - FAJITAS
Roasted Prawn Fajitas @ RM43.95

As far as I could remember, sizzling fajitas here have always been well-portioned and I really like how it is served on a hot plate, keeping it warm and fresh till the end of the meal.

If you love seafood with spicy kick, I'm sure you can't resist this combination: Succulent prawns, beef chorizo and pineapple pico de gallo served on a bed of cooked red onion rings and garlic tomatoes. It is the citrus chile sauce that gives the refreshing tang and spiciness to the overall oceanic flavours.

Take a bit of everything and wrap in a warm tortilla.
It's so irresistibly good, especially when you eat with your hands.

Smoked Buffalo Chicken Fajitas @ RM36.95

My dining partner prefers the chicken fajita instead, for the extra smoky edge it gives, especially when it is complemented with Chili's classic spicy wing sauce. Plus, weight watchers would appreciate the lean chicken meat used in this generously-portioned sizzling dish. 

Some may wrap it on a tortilla with the cooked red onion rings, bleu cheese crumbles, fresh cilantro and roasted jalapeño. But seriously the marinade is so divine that I could eat the chicken by itself!

Poultry fans may also love to try the crispy Tortilla-crusted Chicken Fajitas (RM37.95) or mildly sweet Honey-Chipotle Chicken Fajitas (RM37.95).

Ribeye Fajitas with Queso Fundido @ RM64.95

As much as we love the chicken and prawn fajitas, we must admit that the winner of the day is the tender sliced ribeye steak fajitas smothered in warm garlic queso fundido. We are pretty familiar with the kicky citrus chile sauce, fresh cilantro and roasted jalapeño by now, as introduced to us in the previous dishes.

But there is more here! Queso fundido translates to "molten cheese", something that melts perfectly in the mouth and keeps me going for more. 


Rice and Black Beans Boat - Cilantro rice, black beans, corn salsa and crumbled feta cheese.

The good thing here is, all Chili's sizzling fajitas are served with warm flour tortillas and a choice between Avocado Boat or Rice and Black Beans Boat. If you are feeling famished, the latter may be a better choice. 

Well, I'm being a lil' greedy with my tortilla filling here. Nevertheless, everything goes together in a snap and receives the biggest applause from the crowd.

Avocado Boat Sliced avocado with house-made pico de gallo,
corn salsa, beef bacon bits sprinkled with fresh cilantro. 

DRINKS AND DESSERT
Watermelon Lemonade @ RM14.95
Refreshing flavor of lemonade combined with fresh watermelon purée.

Our tex-mex affair does not just end here. We wash down the sumptuous meal with refreshing sips of fresh watermelon with lemonade, while saving some space in the stomach for the new dessert, 

Chocolate Bread Pudding @ RM24.95

Two huge chunks of warm Mexican chocolate bread pudding, is topped with fresh sliced strawberries, rich chocolate ganache and vanilla ice-cream; then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. The resulting taste? So soft, so rich, and melts perfectly well in the mouth.


Let's bring some sizzle to your meal! Delicious, fresh-from-the-kitchen Tex-mex food coupled with fun and energetic atmosphere at Chili's complete our dining experience here.
