Eat: TGIF, Johor Bahru, Malaysia

TGIF in JB has not disappoint us so far... Just across the causeway via First Link, price is cheaper compared to Singapore and their food are so far so good. 

For those with kids, with every adult meal ordered, kids gets complimentary meal from the "Stars Menu", you can choose any one from the menu below.

Complimentary kids meal with any adult main course ordered

For my kiddos, both of them are fans of fries so they ordered fish and fries and chicken fingers with fries. It comes with a honey mustard sauce and the kids love them. Keep dipping the fries into the sauce, at the end of it, en xin even lick the sauce off the saucer.

Some of the main courses we ordered.

1. Wild Mushroom Farfalle is a mix of fresh crimini, shiitake and button mushroom with farfalle pasta in garlic sauce sprinkled with fresh Parmesan. Hubby ordered this, commented that it is ok only... nothing to shout about.

Wild Mushroom Farfalle , RM 19.90
2. Cowboy Triple Meat Burger, tender pieces of slow cooked BBQ beef, with melted Colby Cheese top with bacon and crispy frizzled onion. Brother in law ordered this, cause it is new on the menu... but he still prefers their conventional burger which he tried on previous occasions.

3. Championship BBQ Chicken, roasted half chicken top with Championship BBQ Sauce, served with cripsy onion rings and cheddar cheese mashed potatoes. This is one of MIL favourite, she never fails to order this whenever we come...she likes how the chicken is well marinated, and also commented that the mashed potatoes is very flavourful.

4. Championship BBQ Beef Ribs, slow cooked beef rib until fall-off-the-bone tender, in championship BBQ sauce, serve with fries, onion rings and apple coleslaw. FIL loves this course, keep saying it is very nice. I tried a small piece as well, and indeed it is very flavourful. The meat goes very well with the BBQ sauce and is indeed very tender.

5. Sizzling Vegetable Fajitas, served hot with flour tortillas, pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream and Colby cheese. This is one of my favourite, the tortillas are really soft. Guacamole and the accompanion are very fresh. I usually ordered Chicken Fajita but decided to order vegetable fajita for a change,a little disappointed with some of the vegetables as they are not very cooked, so it is a bit hard (the broccoli and long bean), other than that, i have no other complain, love the tortilla that goes very well with the sauce.

6. For dessert, initially we wanted to order our usual favourite, it is their brownies but out of stock so ended up ordering chocolate lava cake and fried cheese cake.

Chocolate lava cake tasted like usual lava cake, nothing to shout about. 

Fried cheesecake is a disappointment, a small piece of cheese cake wrap in popiah skin and fried.... well, they are just not a match for each other... trying too hard to fusion chinese popiah skin with western cheesecake... and it is a failure.. will never order this dessert again...the cheesecake pieces inside the popiah skin is also too small, can't really taste the cheesecake at all!
