Applebee’s Al Khalidiya: A Foodie’s Review

In the past we have heard so much about Applebee’s from friends who enjoyed having their meals there and tried one here and there. And after having not so pleasant experiences from a couple of their outlets I was actually reluctant to go into another one.

However we got famished after some window shopping and I was not in the mood to look for a place to eat out of the mall. One of the places that’s still open at the Al Khalidiya Mall was Applebee’s. We ordered some chicken meal for the four of us and using the Entertainer vouchers it would come out really cheap. While waiting for our order, I can’t help but notice that this branch looks well designed. Nice ambiance I should say.

The food served in front of us were far from cheap though. We ordered Crunchy Thai Shrimp Salad which was so refreshing and tasty, Santa Fe Chicken and Fiesta Lime Chicken. Juicy chicken, and sumptuous serving of sidings, which were well prepared and nicely presented. Hubby had ordered Chipotle Lime Crusted Salmon and he liked it a lot. And one new favorite is the chili cheesy fries. And to finish the meal, you can’t go wrong with a Triple Chocolate Meltdown.

For a change we thought hey they must be doing something different here at this branch. Service was superb, got no complaints whatsoever. The staff knows what’s in their menu. And they were able to anticipate whenever we wanted refills of our drinks even before we could ask for it.

All in all it was a pleasant dining experience that left us full and happy with our choice of food.
