Choices for food are pretty limited around my office, so sometimes I drive out for lunch to the Jaya Shopping Centre/Jaya 33 area. Originally I had planned to grab some McDonalds, but ended up at Chilli’s instead because I was craving buffalo wings. Didn’t want to get such a heavy meal so I ordered their soup of the day (served in bowl/cup – I recommend getting the cup because the bowl is quite huge).
Soup of the Day – Chicken Enchilada. Doesn’t look very appetising, but it tasted better than it looked – creamy with generous chunks of shredded chicken in it. My only qualm was that the chicken, despite swimming in soup, had a dry, rough texture on the tongue.
Buffalo wings (8 pcs) were not really wings – more like drumettes. Diners can opt for BBQ rub or Honey Chipotle, if buffalo sauce isn’t your thing. The dish was served with a dipping bowl of ranch + celery sticks. Taste-wise, it was definitely better than the disaster that was WingStop (review: here) although the meat wasn’t the freshest. The sauce coated the chicken well and the ranch gave it extra creaminess.
Chilli’s is a global brand that serves TexMex fare like nachos, burritos, hearty salads and huge burgers. For my review of Chilli’s at Paradigm Mall, Kelana Jaya, click here.
