It has been AGES since my first try of Uncle Cheffy’s food so I was internally jumping with joy when the usual Friday lunchout group decided to eat here. When I posted our group photo on Facebook, someone jokingly said that I blended with the wall decor due to my color. I just got back from El Nido that time hence the tan. Anyway, on to the food…

Rockefeller Oyster | Php390
A plateful of baked oysters topped with gooey mozzarella and bacon slices. I loved how juicy the oysters were and some shells even had two oyster meat in it (score!) I love cheese so the stringy mozzarella was such a delight. And then there’s the bacon. Who does not love bacon?!? I sure love me some bacon and I’m so happy that they were so generous with the bacon slices. Would definitely order this again.

Tiuey Noodles | Php295
Pronounced as “Chewy Noodles”. First of all, what’s up with the trippy spelling? LOL. But weird spelling aside, this was good. It’s Asian fried noodles with beef, asparagus and cilantro. The noodles were cooked al dente and the beef slices were tender. A good dish overall.

Seafood Marinara Pasta | Php410
This would have been a good dish if not for the undercooked pasta. It was too under to be considered al dente. Because of the pasta’s texture, the whole dish sort of failed. Such a shame since the seafood bits in it were actually good.

All Meat Barbecued Brick Oven Panizza | Php450
It had beef teriyaki, pork, chicken barbecue, onion and chili flakes, basil and cheese. I loved how thin and crunchy the panizza was and as expected, I loved the cheese. However, I am not a big fan of the meat combination. The beef teriyaki was a bit too sweet for my liking and the sweetness kind of overpowered all the other tastes. I was also missing the chili flakes in the pizza, maybe that could have balanced the sweetness off. Loved the panizza but I think I’d rather try other toppings next time.

Buffalo Chicken Wings
For some reason, I cannot find this item in any of Uncle Cheffy’s online menu so I can’t tell you how much this dish cost us. What I can tell you though is that this plateful of perfectly crispy deep-fried chicken wings smothered in buffalo sauce was thoroughly enjoyed by our table. The serving size is very generous which makes you feel that you’re getting the appropriate bang for your buck.

Overall, I love Uncle Cheffy’s food. I would certainly go back to this restaurant again to hopefully try their grilled specialties. How about you? Have you tried eating at Uncle Cheffy’s? If so, what’s your favorite from there?

I feel like Chili’s has been around for so long and I just always have taken it for granted because I am not really a big fan of American food. I finally got to try it a long time ago with a good friend.

Grilled Chicken Salad | Regular Php275, To Share Php470
Grilled chicken with cheese, tomatoes, smoked corn relish and honey lime vinaigrette. I especially loved the grilled chicken, cooked just right, so moist and tender.

Tripple Dipper | Php510
A combination of three appetizers – Wings Over Buffalo, Chicken Crispers, and Southwestern Eggrolls. It is served with three kinds of dipping sauces. I loved the egg rolls because for some reason, I was in the mood for something that had a little bit of Mediterranean taste that night. And I think out of the 3 sauces, we favored the Bleu Cheese one the most.

Bacon Burger | Php455
Topped with crispy bacon, aged cheddar cheese, mayo, shredded lettuce, tomato, sliced red onion, and pickle. Unfortunately this was a let down. The burger was supposed to have been grilled medium well and served on a sesame seed bun with home-style fries. The patty was dry and the bacon was overcooked to the point where it got hard and stiff. I don’t think I will order this again.

My first dining experience at Chili’s was a hit and miss but I will most probably go back again for their other dishes and what looks like an impressive dessert selection.
