Everytime I go to Resorts World Sentosa, Chili’s has become a default pit-stop for a meal after Universal Studios. Perhaps it is feel-good vibes that allow whole groups of friends to be merry over huge burgers, tortilla chips and milkshakes.

The Dallas originated chain has 4 branches in Singapore – Central Clarke Quay, Tanglin Mall, RWS and JCube, all selling Tex-Mex cuisine in huge portions that makes it suitable for families and friends to share. To keep things updated, they have just introduced a new menu available now through 26 November.

An appetising starter would be the Fried Quesadilla Bites ($11.00). Quick tip: Don’t spend too much time on taking photos of the snack. Just eat it while it is still hot and crisp. Battered and fried, I was not expecting the flour tortillas to be oozing with cheese, along with the bites of chunky southwest chicken. Deep fried food lovers would find it tough to stop at one.

These fried bites would go well with the Platinu Presidente Margarita ($16) made with Tres Generaciones Angejo Tequila, Cointreau Orange Liquer and Brandy, garnished with Fresh Lim Sour. If you are fond of the shaker (like my dining partner who wanted to bring a container home), you can buy it back for $14 so that you can make your own concoction at home.

There are a couple of new mains introduced from Chilis – the Parmesan Crusted Steak ($39.00), Bacon & Cheddar Steak ($39.00) and Parmesan Chicken ($24.00).

The steak crusted with parmesan and Monterey Jack cheese worked better for me, with the crisp top layer adding a textured scab and slight saltiness. Makes the steak a little more playful to eat, and go for the medium rare where it is suitably juicy.

Instead, the Southwest seasoned steak topped with bacon and melted cheddar cheese would cheer the younger group because it does feel like eating a pizza at parts. But I felt the accompaniment did not blend as well into the steak, like two separate parts compared to the former.

The Parmesan Chicken is a similar take, drizzled with chile butter and sprinkled with green onions. Chicken breast meat, if not prepared well, can turn out to be dry and tough. But this version manages to lock the moisture in, and turns out to be one of the table’s favourite – with its crumbly outer layer and tender inside.

All the Chili’s mains come with two sides, such as Jalapeno Mashed Potatoes. Loaded Mashed Potatoes, Smoked Sweet Potato, Smoked Potato, Homestyle Fries, Broccoli, Corn on the Cob, Rice and Black Beans.

My personal recommendations for the two are the Jalapeno Mashed Potatoes and sweet and juicy Corn. I must say I haven’t eaten Corn on the Cob for ages, and it is absolutely fun to eat off the stick.

Dessert is a decadent Banana Bread Pudding ($13) topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, cinnamon, chopped nuts and a caramel drizzle. For a limited time, diners will enjoy 20% off when they order any 2 new menu items.

  1. Parmesan Crusted Steak ($39.00), Bacon & Cheddar Steak ($39.00) and Parmesan Chicken ($24.00).all look yummy. love it . die die must try

  2. Banana Bread Pudding – Not only an eye candy, but a candy to the tongue as the combination of banana bread and ice-cream in a warm and cold mixture, together with crunchy nuts mostly never fail to work!

  3. Fried Quesadilla Bites!!! Cheese, I love cheese! Flour tortilla with oozing cheese = perfect match made in Chili’s (heaven)! 🙂

  4. Bacon & Cheddar Steak ….a perfect combination, the salty taste of bacon and cheddar with the steak would taste awesomely good!! A fan of these ingredients, definitely would love to try this dish as this sparks an interesting must try food 😀

  5. Bacon & Cheddar Steak!!!! BACON! anything that has bacon can never go wrong! Cheddar is the cheeziest cheese that screams awesomeness. STEAK is a crowd winner! Who doesn’t like steak!!! THE BEST COMBI EVER!!!!

  6. Wanna try the Southwest seasoned steak as its a hybrid of my 2 favourite things (i.e. steak and cheese). Also, i’m pretty sure almost nowhere else will be able to do this as well as they do!

  7. I would love to try the Banana Bread Pudding!! What is a proper meal without any desserts! I always think the last course of the day (desserts) affects your rating for the whole meal. The picture of the Banana Bread Pudding just looks so awesome!! Nice and interesting combi! I can't wait to try it 🙂

  8. Usually i would pick the Dessert first but i think i would probably like to try Chili’s Fried Quesadilla Bites because Cheese comes in second place in the list of what make Girls happy!

  9. I would love to try the Parmesan Chicken- healthy chicken breast with my favourite parmesan cheese, plus a choice a 2 side from their variety of delicious side dishes, i am absolutely in love with it! 😛

  10. The banana bread pudding looks really special! Ice cream, cinnamon, chopped nuts topped with caramel looks like a really delicious combination!

  11. Banana bread pudding. My mom used to make it for me, and I thought it was the only one in the world! Now that I don’t have my mom to make it for me, maybe Chili’s bbp can serve as a wonderful memory 🙂

  12. Definitely the decadent Banana Bread Pudding!! A dinner so sumptuous and heavenly surely deserves a heavy indulge in sinful desserts to achieve a delicately balanced meal. Just imagine the vanilla ice cream, cinnamon, chopped nuts and caramel drizzle creating havoc to the tastebuds, evil…

  13. i would like to try the Parmesan Chicken beacuse Chili's serve excellent food and i am sure this would be no exception! Also, i am sure it taste just as good as it looks on the photo. =)

  14. I would like to try the Fried Quesadilla Bites. I am a fan of fried food and cheese and it is a dream team with of both with the Fried Quesadilla Bites.

  15. I would like to try the Parmesan Crusted Steak as I am curious how the flavor of Parmesan and Monterey Jack cheese and steak would taste like. Also, I am a big favorite of cheese and steak respectively.

  16. I would love to try the Banana Bread Pudding because I am sucha sucker for desserts! I will always have room for desserts no matter how full I am and this looks really yummylicious!

  17. The Parmesan Crusted Steak looks super delicious! Can't wait to take a huge bite of that juicy steak with all that melted cheese!! 😀

  18. Chili's serves unpretentious delicious food! always my favourite joint to go to. Definitely will try out the new menu! especially for the parmesan lover in me, the parmesan meats like parmesan crusted steak!

  19. I LOVE Parmesan Crusted Steak!!

    Because this is an ingenious combination of 2 of my favourites: Parmesan Cheese and Steak! Just hearing the name makes me drool already 😛

  20. The new menu looks really enticing, but I would definitely pick banana bread pudding as the dish to try. First of all its a dessert and the utter decadence of hot bread pudding contrasted with icecream and my fav combi of caramel and cinnamon. Oh gosh… bring it on.

  21. I would like to try the Parmesan Crusted Steak!! Steak is my absolute favourite dish! Can’t wait to try how this new combination would taste like!

  22. The Fried Quesadilla Bites look absolutely amazing and I would die to try themmmmmmmmm (: Heard lots about Chillis and I'ld love to give it a try!

  23. I would love to try the Parmesan Crusted Steak.

    I have never eaten a steak with cheese as a topping. It takes skills to sear a steak to medium rare perfection and also to have the cheese topped and melted with a golden-brown finish. I would be delighted to tryout this new dish by Chillis.

    I have never been to Chillis and would love to try out their food especially now with the new dishes introduced!! (:

  24. I would love to try the Parmesan Crusted Steak.

  25. Would love to try the Parmesan Chicken with its crumbly outer layer and tender inside and the Fried Quesadilla Bites.

  26. I would love to try The Parmesan Crusted Steak. Personally, I feel that cooking a "perfect" steak is really difficult. Your timing must be really accurate. This could only be achieved by true experienced chef. & I really do love tender steak not those hard ones. Ah, just by thinking about it makes me drool. STEAK STEAK STEAK. Definitely steak.
    Topped with pParmesan cheese. gosh heavenlyyyyy. Would love to try~ will the cheese topping be too overwhelming? Will the texture be alright? For me to try and find out! Muahahah
