P999 Food for 3: Find Out Your Squad Combo at Chili’sJuly 11, 2016
Unbutton your pants and ready your gut: we’re riding the Chili’s train with their latest scheme to get us full to bursting. In malls, it can be quite a challenge to find a place where a thousand bucks—minus one—is enough to satisfy several people, but at Chili’s, P999 will get you a long way. Pick one from a choice of five appetizers, and get two full-size entrees from a choice of ten.
Faced with an overwhelming list of dishes to choose from? We’re here to help you narrow down your combos to suit your squad.
The Brofit Squad Combo
You hit the gym so often that lifelong friendships have been formed between rows of sweaty benches. If #gains are a big deal to you, get the Wings Over Buffalo as your appetizer: chicken wings hand-tossed in Chili’s very own spicy Buffalo Wing Sauce, served with bleu cheese dressing and celery on the side to help you ease off on the spice. For your entrées, go for the Oldtimer Burger, a classic Chili’s touch, seared to perfection and served with red onion and mustard, and Country Style Pork Belly, grilled and served with rice and steamed vegetables.
The Food Bloggers Squad Combo
You’ve been known to let food go cold once or twice in the name of a well-curated Instagram feed, so we’ll help you pick the yummiest, most-palatable dishes. For your appetizer, go for the Classic Nachos, with its melted cheese and jalapeño toppings, served with house-made pico de gallo and sour cream. Your entrées: Fajitas and Monterey Chicken, replete with all the garnishes you’ll ever need for a pretty picture: bell peppers, caramelized onions, chipotle-garlic butter, chopped cilantro, cheddar cheese, fresh guac, pickled onions, jalapeño relish, cumin-lime sour cream, house-made pico de gallo, and fresh salsa. (The Monterey Chicken is served with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables for a potent flavor and color assault.)
The Titas of Manila Squad Combo
You’ve let go of the times when a good night out meant partying in killer heels until sunrise and have fully embraced the ritual of ageing gracefully into tita-hood. The perfect appetizer in this case would be the Southwestern Eggrolls, crispy flour tortillas filled with smoked chicken, black beans, and a smattering of other ingredients that pair exceptionally well with the house-made avocado-ranch dressing it comes with. For your entrées, Chicken Club Tacos should be a no-brainer, the grilled mesquite chicken breast comes with chopped bacon and ancho-chile ranch dressing, Chili’s rice, and black beans. The Alfredo Chicken Pasta should also make it into your list, topped with diced tomatoes, green onions, blossom spice, and pungent, flavorful Parmesan cheese.
