Date at T.G.I Friday's

Due to National Day, we were only work for 8 hours per day this week; yet I don't really like it as the traffic make me headache and weary. Had a dinner date yesterday with my colleagues, sort of a thank you dinner for all the committees that helped out the annual dinner (oops, haven't blog about it tho); the most excited part - the dinner was free of charge!
Had the dinner at T.G.I Friday's, we didn't made reservation as there are always empty tables whenever we walk by. Good or bad?
My second time stepped into this restaurant after my first try 4 years ago, the classic plane still hanging on the same place. Heard my colleagues said that T.G.I Friday's did their renovation last year, only a few spots are differ than before, that's all.
Like the slogan: In here, it's always Friday. We were joking around that we should open a T.G.I Thursday as we didn't work on Friday. Something that never change in this restaurant is they lack of waiters/waitresses, we waited for them to serve us.
My glass of November Sea Breeze (RM8.90), it's something like a mix of cranberry juice and apple juice, topped with a lime wedge and soda on top. I can't really tasted all the flavors, I only got the sweet and sour mix taste which is taste like a Teh Ice Limau. Laugh.
Grilled snapper with tomato cucumber Vinaigrette . RM32.90
The chargrilled snapper fillet is topped with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers and Basil Vinaigrette. They claimed that the rice served in T.G.I Friday's is awesome, I did tried a mouth, it's something like a herb rice, not bad!
Medium well Sirloin Steak . RM45.90
You get to choose everything for this dish, the steak and fire-grilled it just the way you like, the sauces, and the side dishes. My colleague have a medium well sirloin steak which grilled with black pepper sauce and come with broccoli and fries.
Tossed Tomato-Basil Chicken (I think so) . RM27.90
Due to sore throat, one of my colleague ordered this, without any grilled and fried stuff in the dish; pasta is topped with chopped chicken breast and tossed in tomato-basil salsa. I gave him some of the cucumbers, he seems to enjoy vegetables very much.
Friday's Shrimp . RM31.90
All of us didn't thought that this will served only golden brown, crispy shrimps and fries, at least some vegetables should come together with this what. Too plain and heaty. The tartar sauce taste the same as the fillet-o-fish sauce in McDonald's. Yum!
Tennessee Chicken & Shrimp . RM38.90
Finally, my dish was served! The chicken breast which grilled with the Tennessee sauce is just awesome and not too dry. Together in this dish, there are vegetables, crispy shrimps and Cheddar cheese mashed potatoes! Variety stuffs in just a plate.
Dessert Minis . RM16.90
I was quite excited for this at first they served up, those mini desserts just too cute to eat. From left to right we have Strawberry Parfait, Snickers Treat, Mocha Latte, Tropical Delight and Chocolate Oreo Mini Crunch. We felt disappointed for this, too sweet and they melt too fast before we started to eat them. Should just ordered a salad instead of this. Sign
Brownie Obsession . RM14.90
Not a big fan for brownie and chocolate although this look just great and savoury; I only had a bite on it. The only part I like for this is the vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. Laugh
