It’s now December, which means not long to Christmas. Different restaurants have brought out a festive themed menu in addition to their regular menu. One restaurant I enjoy going to is TGI Fridays and the other week I decided to order from their Christmas menu. I went to the TGI’s in St David’s Center, Cardiff.
TGI’s did a similar menu last year but I didn’t try it. This year’s looked quite good and I decided to try it out as it was three courses for £22.99. Plus if you order the three course meal you get a Christmas themed cocktail from the menu for £3.99.
Items from the menu can also be ordered a la carte too, as all items are priced individually. So if you didn’t want a three course meal but just wanted an entree, you could just order that. I went for the three course offer as it looked very good.
The first drink I ordered was called a Purple Snowstorm. It’s a mix of rum, blue curacao, vodka, chambord, sweet and sour, grenadine and a sugar rim. This one tasted awesome and had this really nice sweet taste to it.
The appetizer I went for was the mozzarella parcels which were basically mozzarella dippers. Instead of a tomato dip I got a cranberry dip. Icing sugar was also on top of the dippers too. I did originally think the icing sugar would taste weird but it was quite nice as they weren’t covered in it. Just a dusting.
I really enjoy the Jack Daniels sesame chicken strips when i usually go to TGI’s, so I was really glad these were on the set menu. Like the mozzarella parcels, these ones came with icing sugar too, along with pomegranate seeds and a cranberry dip. Like the mozzarella parcels, the icing sugar wasn’t too much and didn’t ruin the taste of the chicken strips.
For dessert I went for the chocolate orange brownie sundae. It tasted really fresh and zingy, due to the orange sorbet. I did like the combination of the popcorn and brownie that were included in the dessert.
I also ordered a Jingle Bell Punch which was a mix of vodka, midori, grenadine, cranberry and blueberry juice. This one was very refreshing and had a nice fruity taste to it.
The Christmas menu is great value for money as you get a three course meal for £22.99. The menu offers a good choice of food too. So if you are looking for a good place to eat this time of year I do recommend checking out TGI Fridays.
