We #meet our match with TGI Fridays

For the first time in eight years, TGI Fridays have added to their menu, and what an array of food they have chosen: from juicy melt-in-the-mouth Jack Daniel’s covered ribs to the “Bucket of Bones” as well as a simultaneously sweet & savoury Chicken waffle…not forgetting the new hot dogs with five new flavours…but I f this doesn’t make your mouth water then the larger than life Warrior burger will!

The man with the biggest stomach in the world picked the Jack Daniel’s® bucket of bones as a starter.  This bucket would happily keep two people busy (especially when paired with those cocktails!) as it’s main course-sized. It was full of flavour with the much-loved gooey JD sauce, melt-in-the-mouth meat and a kick from crushed chillies. This is the only place Mrs Foodie eats chicken skin, how can you resist when it is covered in sugary Jack Daniel’s® sauce?

More delicious JD sauce, this time pork belly.  Thankfully a person sized portion (So Mrs Foodie got it all to herself!) With juicy meat, melting pork fat…..another plate please!

Served with crispy fries and onion rings.  I could almost feel Mr Foodie’s heart sink at the size (or was that stop?!)

tgi fridays meet your match glasgow foodie explorers new menuFor the lady was the sweet/savoury chicken and waffle combo. I’d been ogling this beauty online – chicken, bacon, cheese, mayo and waffle, a tasty mix of sweet and savoury.  Nothing at all like those cold, hard waffles that are often served, this one was fluffy with tender and crisp chicken inside.  It’s another one of those famous (or infamous!) small portions from Fridays! 😜

tgi fridays cocktails new menu glasgow foodie explorersThe new menu at TGI’s certainly allowed us to “meet our match” or should that be “meat our match”, we were both stuffed with various types of meat, with the bucket of bones and chicken waffle being especially great, but Mr Foodie does not recommend eating a full bucket of bones and Warrior Burger in a single siting – make two visits instead!

Many thanks to TGI Fridays for inviting us along to meet the staff and see the new additions to the menu.

Fred assures you that although his mum and dad were fed and watered by TGI Fridays, they are a pair of grumps and need a lot to be impressed.
