TGI Fridays “The Platter” Creates Great Camaraderie



When we get together with friends and family, it’s time to bond over food and what better way than to dine communally. Good times are best remembered from sharing food. Often, when we visit a restaurant serving Western food, we order separately unlike in Chinese restaurants where we order dishes to be shared.

Now TGI Fridays™ has introduced “The Platter”, the intention of which is to enable everyone at the table to share all the goodies on the platter. There are two promotional platters at TGI Fridays™ namely “The Chicks Platter” and “The Boss”. Each platter is unique and has been carefully crafted and includes a selection of pastas, salads and other side dishes other than the main platter.




The Chicks Platter (RM117.50 nett)  includes Grilled Chicken, Roasted ½ chicken with Tennessee sauce and Pan Seared Chicken Thigh served with Coleslaw, Waffle Fries, Garlic Bread, Caesar Salad and Penne Alfredo with a generous helping of BBQ sauce, black pepper sauce and sriracha cream sauce.

I enjoyed The Chicks Platter very much because the chicken is tender and it’s good that TGI Fridays™ provides 3 different sauces as everyone’s taste preference is different. This platter is very substantial and will satisfy even the most hungry of diners. The waffle fries are seriously crispy and I was quite addicted to them. Even kids will love this platter because they can choose between Grilled Chicken, Roasted ½ chicken with Tennessee sauce and Pan Seared Chicken Thigh, all of which are very yummy.



The Boss (RM249.90 nett) features Sliced Sirloin Steak, juicy BBQ Beef Ribs, Lamb Chumps served with Corn on Cob, Potato Accordion, Garlic Bread, Caesar Salad and Marinara Farfalle with a generous helping of Mint sauce, BBQ sauce and mushroom butter sauce.

While I do indulge in the occasional lamb meal, I’m not that much of a carnivore but this platter will appeal to those who love red meats. My favourite on this platter was surprisingly the Potato Accordion as the sour cream on it complements it perfectly. Eating 3 or 4 of these will definitely fill up the space in anyone’s stomach.

Each platter is sufficient for up to 8 people and it’s a fantastic way to dine as it’s rather cost-saving. Put it this way, it’ll be a lot cheaper than each person ordering their individual starter and main course.
