Why I Want to Eat at Friday's!


Ever since my first visit many years ago, T.G.I.Fridays remains as my number 1 choice for Western food. So whenever B and I debate on What's For Dinner Tonight, TGIF is topmost on our list of suggestions. We both know that a visit to TGIF means we'll definitely come home happy and satisfied!

One of the many things I love about TGIF is the warm and inviting ambience it exudes, complete with dim lights and upbeat music to help you relax as you indulge in the delicious jumbo cocktails and American food it serves. TGIF is also an ideal choice for any occasion. I've had first dates here as well as Valentine's dinners, birthday parties, reunions with friends or just a cosy night out with B, and every single one was great!




TGIF serves many delicious appetizers but my favourite is definitely is the Buffalo Wings! Coated with a special hot n spicy sauce, they taste simply divine with the accompanying blue cheese dip. I've tried the buffalo wings at Chilli's but those are served with a different kind of dip, so they come only a close second for me!



I recently discovered a new item at TGIF and it's now another TGIF favourite of mine. Presenting...Cookies n Cream! Doesn't it look heavenly? I had this dessert during my birthday dinner with B this year and I have to say that it's probably the best I've ever tasted! Just one bite of this sinfully sweet dessert and you can't help but want more! Imagine rich vanilla ice cream sandwiched between 2 deliciously chewy chocolate chip squares laced with hot fudge and caramel sauce...simply irresistible!



Whenever B & I are away on one of our travel adventures, I'd make sure we visit the local TGIF there, if there's one where we are. This picture was taken at TGIF Melbourne, Australia during our vacation several years back. Don't I look totally at home in front of the TGIF signboard?



And this one was taken at TGIF The Curve in Damansara
several months back. From my grin, I guess you can tell that I'm one happy camper to be dining at TGIF!

Over the years, TGIF has impressed me with marked improvement. The service is now even better, the dishes tastier and the menu even more varied! So for the very fussy customer like me, who tends to throw tantrums if the service is not up to par and expects only the very best when she dines out, there are 3 things that I require from my favourite restaurants -
ambience, excellent menu and impeccable service. TGIF has all three...and that's Why I want to eat at Friday's!

Happy Friday everyone and here's to a wonderful weekend ahead!

Ooh you're making it sooo tempting, how to Puasa like this??? To be frank, I haven't stepped into a TGIF restaurant in my entire life ... so sad right?

Anyway, anyone reading this will definitely end up at one, that's for sure.

J@n!ce October 06, 2007 9:43 PM

Marzie, I've been to TGIF once in Singapore before it closed down. The buffalo wings the way you describe really makes me salivate lah. I dun rem trying it last time. What I could recall is there is a BIG human gorilla walking around the tables on my first visit & that really freak me out. I felt uneasy & quite reluctant to visit again. Before I knew, the venue has been taken by "Fish & Co".... I need to travel over yours to try it liao :)

Janice Ng

So Genie Princess...how many jumbo cocktails to you have with dinner? I usually have 8. The last time I went there I got so drunk they had to carry me outside on a stretcher! LOL...just kidding he he!!!!:)

Mariuca October 07, 2007 3:49 PM

Jan! U shld have taken a pic of the gorilla guy! That would have made a good TGIF moment! Well, don't worry, we don have any gorillas at the TGIFs here...just wholesome fun and good food! :):):)

Nick Phillips October 08, 2007 9:04 AM

Ah Marzie, Marzie, Marzie, how do you expect me to keep with my diet when you go and post such mouth watering postings like that?!!! LOL! To be honest, I haven't been to TGIF in ages and I live so nearby even ... must try it out soon ... Happy Monday.

Mariuca October 08, 2007 3:26 PM

Nick Phillips October 09, 2007 8:20 AM

Wow, Marzie, you sound like a radio ad for TGIF ... LOL!, Ok, ok, I'll go already ... hehehe ...

Mariuca October 09, 2007 9:15 AM

Ha ha ha... I do don't I? Well, TGIF should be happy with me then for givin them some publicity! I hope they'll notice just how much of a fan I am and let me win that 1k! Yeeha! :):):)

Genie Princess

Adrian October 09, 2007 2:02 PM

Marzie are you sure you don't work for TGIF or something! This fre publicity you're giving them should be making you some moolah so you can go more often! That dessert looks mighty tempting lah! How to keep up with my diet if you keep promoting such great food! I'm already hooked on Tony Roma's bleu cheese burger!

Genie King

Mariuca October 09, 2007 2:23 PM

GK forget the diet!! Raya is coming and we need to indulge ourselves in some good food! LOL!

You know, I've not visited Tony Roma's since the last time I recommended the blue cheese burger to u... kinda miss the onion loaf la!

Genie Princess

Adrian October 09, 2007 4:07 PM

Well I've been there twice and would have gone again on Monday too but was busy getting my broadband! :)
