Welcome to another edition of Jom Makan! Remember that Deena is craving for some greasy, generous portion of definitely high in calorie in cholesterol American burger? Yup today we went to satisfy that craving (and will not eat, shall not, eat burgers for a long time I suppose).
Please take note that you will be seeing a lot of Deena in this post, because apparently, according to her, her outfit matched the TGIF's theme red & white colours. Also she's having a good make-up day. As for me, I'm having a fat, unattractive looking everyday so I definitely cropped out all my photos hehe. =)
Oh yes TGIF's definitely brings lots of memories to Deena since my parents held her 18th birthday party at one of the TGIF's and it was a really fun party there with her friends. Yes yes, birthday girl bullied to sing on the chair was definitely done, but Nana was more than happy to be the centre of attention as usual. =)
The Halloween promotion. We were not in costumes but we were indeed as famished as witches hunting for fresh blood of the young.
Check out the ambience which suits the Halloween mood. We went on the day of Halloween itself so all the waiters & waitresses were wearing creepy costumes & make-up to be in the mood.
Spiders, bats, cobwebs all over. I just couldn't help to think of the cleaning afterwards hahaha I'm so boring. =D
Ok before we order, please help yourselves with more Deena & Ummi. Alhamdulillah Ummi is on meds and recovering slowly but surely insha Allah. Her appetite is getting better only she prefers sour-ish food these days but she's still weak especially in the evenings, thus we can only go out for a short while only most of the time.
Finally! Let's order =)
We don't feel like eating Mexican today, both of us are definitely going for their burgers. When I say both, it's that although Ummi's appetite is improving but she can never finish her food. She always shares of what we're having so it's so much better especially when the portion is huge like at TGIF's.
Green Apple Slush. RM 10.50
Since it's Halloween I just felt ordering a green beverage was the most suitable drink to order. =D It consists of green apple & lemon lime soda. It was tangy, refreshing, fizzy but nice. I love the look. I think it looks eerily pretty. Such paradox works for me. =)
Nana ordered Mango Juice. RM 9.50.
For starters we ordered Boneless Wings. RM 14.90.
Succulent crispy pieces of chicken breast basted in TGIF's traditional spicy buffalo sauce. I always like starters like these combined with celery sticks and dipping. Just like the starters we always order at Chili's.
Uhuh more Nana..
She just had to do this. It's Halloween people! =D
And now is the amazing (slightly embarrassing) time for..
WOMEN VS FOOD!!!
ROUND 1 : My order was the TGIF's infamous specialty, the Tennessee Burger. RM 25.90
Expertly seasoned and fire grilled to order. TGIF's juicy 7-oz. (yes guilty as charged!) burger is glazed w Tennessee Sauce and stacked with 2 strips of crispy beef bacon and Jack cheese on a toasted bun. Served with a side of Tennessee Sauce, the classic fixings and crispy fries.
I dared to order this because previously my bestie Mira told me that this burger is awesome, and I tried it first time by sharing with her. I totally fell in love with the Tennessee Sauce (yes that black sauce) which tastes sweet but the sweetness is so subtle which makes the burger tastes perfect. I am the kind of gal that hates sweetness on food but dessert but this is just the right kind of complimentary sweetness to the burger. Another thing Nana & I noticed was, the crispy fries are real delish here at TGIF's. Ah yes, I tried to share this burger with Ummi & Nana, tried to eat slowly, but the last few bites, I surrendered.
ROUND 1 : FOOD WON AGAINST WOMAN.
ROUND 2 : Nana ordered Barbecue Burger. RM 22.90
It's down-home with a twist - TGIF's chargrilled patty covered in melted Colby cheese, topped with thin Cajun-battered onion rings and served with Friday's barbecue sauce.
Uhum I think from the looks I might feel guiltier if I ordered this. =D
I tasted some of this from Nana but it didn't bring any significant sensation to my taste buds. Probably because me too, is having such an incredible burger. However I think the onion rings add the extra crunch in this.
Now let's see the results of this second battle of WOMAN VS FOOD...
And it did happen! Tell the world that
DEENA WON AGAINST FOOD!!!
It's a victory! Woohoo for women who love to eat like us!! =D
And we left TGIF's happily, trying to put the guilt behind our minds but we felt greater because indeed we experienced AMAZING BURGERS & great service by the very attentive staff. See you again, but not too soon, TGI Friday's. =)
