Chili's Restaurant G Hotel PenangWhen it comes to tortilla chips and salsa sauce, it reminds me a lot of Tex-Mex. If you are in Chuy's, you can always refill the tortilla chips. No restriction, no limit and no matter what you order as long as you're their dine-in customers, you are entitled for free flow. Sounds luxury ah? Well, that's the story in Austin, TX. In Penang, Tex-Mex is not a popular cuisine. Hardly comes across in most restaurants compares to the more typical American food such as burgers, BBQ and grills. Nachos, fajitas or quesadillas are slightly foreign on this tropical island.
Recently, I had been craving so hard for Tex-Mex. Blame it on someone who kept describing how great the Tex-Mex meals he had in Texas. This was how we ended up at Chili's - located at G-Hotel Penang on the ground floor (opposite the Gurney's alfresco situated behind The Coach outlet). Some people call it The Chili's of Gurney Plaza, in fact both refer to the same outlet though.
We arrived on a Sunday for lunch at Chili's restaurant and were promptly ushered for a reasonably private corner table. Dimly lit, classic decorated tiled table and two row of cushioned bench, Chili's of G Hotel Penang offers a cozy and relax atmosphere to dine. If you're looking for tortilla chips at Chili's, do not expect free flow on the house. You have to order. Labeled as Tostada chips bottomless on the starter menu, we thought it would be nice to spare after our entrees. So, we quickly made our mind for main course i.e. Crispy Honey Chopotle and Jalapeno Steak Quesadillas.
Pamper yourself with Tex-Mex at G Hotel PenangAfter seeing Crispy Honey Choptle on our table, it somehow reminded me of Apple Bee Restaurant - the chain restaurant that we frequented more than a couple times in TX. The chicken was fabulous with extra crispy crunch and it was served with generous honey-chipotle sauce in a separate bowl. Also made on the same platter were a comb of corn and some fries.
Since I was dying to have a Tex-Mex, I went for Jalapeno Steak Quesadillas. Though it was claimed to be spicy jalapeno steak combined with melted pepper Jack cheese, jalapenos and fajita onions sandwiched in tortillas, I did not find them that hot nor spicy. Only plain chopped stuff, pico de gallo was not appetizing without the citrus x-factor. Not up to my expectation for an authentic Tex-Mex flavor but overall the dish was okay considering it was prepared in Penang's kitchen :)
Did we forget the Tostada chips? No, we did not but we no longer had any room for it! Keep that for our next visit to G Hotel Penang or until someone is craving for Tex-Mex again!
