Chili's - The Sweet, Smoky and Hot additions to the menu

With the advent of winter, many restaurants are showcasing innovative new items on their menu. Chili’s Grill & Bar, the reputed American restaurant at Inorbit Mall, Hyderabad has introduced a special list of items in addition to their regular menu for a limited time. The theme of the new offerings can be broadly categorised into three flavors – sweet, smoky and hot. The drinks menu has also been augmented with the addition of seasonal watermelon drinks.

Invited to try out the new menu, we started by ordering the two watermelon based drinks. The alcoholic Watermelon Margarita had the fruit puree along with ice and a bit of tequila. The freshness of the watermelon was very apparent in the drink, and the tequila added zing to it.

The other beverage was Watermelon lemonade – the non-alcoholic drink combining the fruit puree with the refreshing flavor of lemonade. The watermelon taste in this drink was even stronger than in the margarita.

Next on our table was the Smoked Salmon Salad. I liked the presentation of the dish. The salmon pieces which had the smokey flavor was served with diced avocados, feta cheese, onions and cabbage in a delicious lemony dressing. The tostada chips served alongside went famously with the salad.

Smoked Spicy Shrimp Pasta

The Smoked Spicy Shrimp Pasta had medium sized shrimps and pasta in a cheesy Alfredo sauce. Veggies, cilantro and chilies were used to garnish the dish, which was served with garlic bread.

I am a porkaholic and could not miss out on the Sweet Mustard Seed Baby Back Ribs. The pork rib rack looked delicious and was served with a full corn and some French fried.  The sweet and smoky barbecue sauce used for the ribs had mustard seeds and honey in it.  The pork meat was of the right texture, and was delightful.

Smoked Garlic Tenderloin

We debated between the Smoked Quarter Chicken and Smoked Garlic Tenderloin and ultimately decided in favor of the latter. The medium tenderloin was served with mashed potatoes and sauteed broccolini. Roasted garlic pods on the tenderloin provided a unique taste along with the sweet honey based chipotle sauce.

Sizzling Brownie

We ended our meal with Sizzling Brownie – a chocolate brownie topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.

The menu has many other interesting items like Pulled Chicken Corn Cakes and Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas.  For vegetarians, the chicken is replaced with paneer in the last two dishes. The hallmark of the new menu is the combination of different flavors in the dishes prepared. The limited edition items will be available till end of January 2015.
