TGI Fridays is an iconic brand known for serving fresh, craveable food and handcrafted cocktail.
Americana Group introduced international casual dining restaurants to the Middle East in 1996 with the first TGI Fridays opening in the UAE. Since then, the brand quickly found favour among Middle Eastern diners, not just for its globally trusted cuisine and generous portions, but also for the relaxed casual dining experience created by TGI’s cheerful stewards in their distinctive red-and-white striped outfits. Americana Groups TGI network now includes 48 restaurants in Kuwait, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and Jordan.
At TGI Fridays,they serve the liberating feeling of Friday everyday as a dose of energy that brings a smile to people’s faces and a sense of spontaneity to their evenings. We achieve this through: indulgent food that encourages sharing and sociability.
Landed at this place while sauntering through the Diera City Center mall on a lazy Friday after watching a movie the first thing that strikes you is the s typical American diner ambiance,the word Friday shouts out loud about the immense energy they give to the foodies around them,with the assorted trinkets that adorn most of its walls with colorful paintings all around and the sophisticated sitting arrangements with railings on side to give it a street look.Totally American in nature and in food of course.
Tired and Friday is the greatest combination for some good food so we ordered me and my Hubby dear ordered a strawberry and cranberry smoothie with a jest of mint.Freshly done and the smooth redness in the juice made my cravings for it more,perfectly chilled and flavored with the mint.What a delicious way to start the meal with.
The Mains of my Hubby was Sizzling Chicken Mexicali which was Chicken Steaks in Spanish rice melted with Mexican cheese and served with pepper,onion,cilantro and a lemon.Each bite was the heavenly Mexican cheese wrapped around the chicken steaks,the perfect that it could be.The chicken steaks were juicy and tender,the Spanish rice was their too add a lot of character to it.
My order was of course the ribs which cannot be ignored when the menu has got a lot of options for ribs,the moment you see you know this is the dish you’ll have for dinner today.My order was Beacon crusted baby beef ribs which is fire grilled to perfection with the tangy BBQ sauce and beacons on top of it,served with Spanish rice and veggies.The perfect meal on a lazy yet delicious evening.The ribs were very juicy and tender just soft inside my mouth.The Spanish rice and the veggies just added to the perfection of the dish.
The experience in this American outlet was terrific and best way to end a weekend and to remember it the whole week.The staffs were very cheerful and the lady serving us gave some of the best advice in the menu.The place is always crowded when i pass by and the amount of foodies they attract can be well define by the food they serve.
A must try out place in UAE.
