Last March 15, T.G.I. Friday’s invited me to taste their new line of dishes which is mainly based on Tennessee cuisine. Alex and I went to Menara Hap Seng along Jalan P. Ramlee to witness the event. I have always been a fan of their classic and sumptuous ribs so I was actually excited to see that they are launching new dishes.
A few bloggers and some people from the local media were there to meet and be introduced to each other. After a few discussions, the meals were served and everyone shared and gave their thoughts. Personally, I like the BBQ, not just that the food profile is familiar to my liking , but it has this distinct sweet marinade which you will never find in other BBQ sauce. Also, the lamb meat from Osso Bucco is one of my bets. It is very moist and tender that I almost forgot that I had my orthodontic braces adjusted a few days back.
It is recognizable that most of the dishes are for not just for one serving, which is actually a good part. Dining has never been fun with yourself, so always make sure to tag along some friends or someone with you. Listed below are the nine new dishes, which I am sure, you will enjoy when you visit any Friday’s outlet nearby.

Not to mention that I forgot to charge my speedlite batteries, for some good karma, after the lunch was served, they prepared another set of these meals outside so I took the advantage of taking shots of their new dishes using natural sunlight.
