For this Christmas, why not head to Chili’s for a nice meal? You know, actually we have heard many not so good things about Penang’s Chilis at G Hotel but we decided to give it a try anyway. Mostly when you have decided to eat at a place but your friends or other food blogs are giving negative responses.. you will have second thoughts. So firstly, let me say that my meal at Chilis was great and everything went very well. The food was nice, service was good and we were stuffed after that. Don’t simply trust other people’s reviews including mine, because everyone has different taste buds. One man’s meat is another man’s poison.
The best way to go to Chilis G Hotel would be parking you car in Gurney Plaza. The parking is very reasonable, only RM1 for the first three hours. That’s more than enough time for you to finish your food. And if you didn’t know already, Chilis is located at the ground floor.
If you have a group of three or more, I’d suggest taking Triple Play as appetizer. But we wanted to try something new and medium portioned so we picked Beef Quesco @ RM11.95. The description says “Our appetizing cheese dip w/seasoned beef. Served w/warm tostada chips” The cheese dip with seasoned beef would be the small bowl on the right. There were chunks of beef inside! Too bad we were not allowed to refill it lol. We were quite shocked to see the size of this.. the tostada chips were piled up like a small mountain and it felt like forever to finish them. One thing to take note eating in Chilis is the serving size. Everything is so huge! I remembered seeing a girl ordering a plate of fried rice or some sort, the portion is so big the boyfriend got a priceless surprise look on his face.
There were two selections from soup of the day: either chicken mushroom soup or broccoli cheese soup. For soups you can choose to have it in cup or bowl sized. Usually we would go for chicken mushroom but chose the latter instead just to try new things. Gladly we did the right choice and were surprised how nice it tasted. One taste and there was no stopping for us lol. Shown here is the cup sized and two crackers to dip in the soup.
Chocolate Banana smoothy @ RM8.85 – Vanilla ice cream & chocolate syrup blended with banana. Topped with whipped cream & chocolate sprinkles. BM Kia says very recommended.
Our main course – Lamb Shoulder which is a juicy 11 oz. lamb shoulder, marinated and grilled to perfection. Served with mashed potatoes, fresh veggies and garlic toast which costs only RM24.95. It was enough for two and worth every cent!
In Chilis the softdrinks and fruit juice are bottomless, meaning you can refill your drink with no limit. Great for those long gatherings don’t you think? Our bill came to a total of RM69.23 including tax and service charge. Was it expensive? I don’t think so and I will be looking forward to return for another great meal.
