Share The Goodness This Christmas at TGIFridays

TGIFridays in Abreeza has recently launched their new and exciting Shareable Platters during the Christmas holidays. It's a combination of sumptuous dishes made from fresh and high quality ingredients ideal to share with friends and family.

These new offerings  include a combination of classic and new combo in one plate to please up to three persons’ diverse tastes. 

You may opt for TGIFridays “Smokehouse Platter” for that sweet, smokey taste. This combo is made up of Smoked Fried Chicken that’s seared, smoked, fried and served with jambalaya sauce; Texas lLnks, char-grilled and meaty sausages served with rice pilaf so plus a plateful of Golden Chipotle Cheese Balls to complement the meal. 

My personal favorite is their “Jack Daniel’s Platter”. You can enjoy a fall-off-the-bone ribs, basted with Jack Daniel’s much sought-after sauce served with fresh corns on the cob. If you are partial to chicken, the Half chicken (glazed with rich Jack Daniel signature sauce, topped with sesame seeds and pickled red onions) is one dish to sink your teeth into and revel in. Also included in this platter is a serving of rice pilaf and Golden Chipotle Cheese Balls. 

Treat yourselves with these two TGIFridays Shareable Platters with family and friends for a memorable dining and bonding experience this Season because good food relished with a spirit of fun is meant to be shared!

Of course, the star of the lunch was the Roasted Turkey with Apple and Bacon Pudding. The stuffing was good and the turkey meat was just divine. You can never go wrong with a roasted turkey. The sauce added flavor to the perfectly cooked turkey meat.
