Chili's Grill & Bar

I went to Chili's after work with my friends. Chili's is a US based chain restaurant. It's funny we had never dined at Chili's while we were studying in the US.

Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip - Rp 77k
We ordered the Spinach and Artichoke Dip since we are such huge fans of California Pizza Kitchen's Spinach and Artichoke Dip. The portion was humongous! I think Chili's is best for group dining where you share food with everyone since all the food come in super bige size. The spinach and artichoke dip looked freshly baked, served in a pan with creamy cheese sauce and salsa. The chips looked more authentic than the one in CPK. We were so eager to get some of it. However, sadly the dip lacked of taste :( We had to add a bunch of salt. It also happened to the chips.

Texas Cheese Fries - Rp 73k
We also ordered Texas Cheese Fries. The fries was served with chili, melted cheese, jalapeno, and beef bacon over it. They also gave ranch dressing sauce on the side. Again, it looked yummy and all but it lacked of taste. The fries was a bit gooey, but it was still okay.

Chicken Mushroom Jack - Rp 120k
For the entree we gt Mushroom Jack with Chicken. It was basically grilled marinated chicken smothered with Jack cheese, bacon, and sauted mushroom, served with onion, bell peppers, and salsa on the side. The portion was again huge, and lacked of taste :(

Ice Lemon Tea - Rp 26k

I believed the Ice Lemon Tea was refillable.

Chili's has been around for quite some time in Jakarta. The interior actually looked dated. Overall, I was pleased with its serving size and price but I gotta be honest that I wasn't impressed with the food itself. They lacked of taste i.e salt, etc. It was such a huge disappointment since I really liked that the spinach dip was freshly made :(
