I had a bout of homesickness this weekend.
I get those every once and again. Every time they strike, I try to surround myself in as much America as I can and hope that I can trick my brain into thinking that I'm there.
It usually doesn't work, but I'll keep trying.
So on Saturday, we went to the new Chili's restaurant in Tanglin Mall.
Chili's was a good friend of mine in college. We procrastinated a lot together over El Nino Margaritas. Have you tried one yet?
You should. They're delish.
But if you're an amateur, only have one. They'll knock you on your butt and make you forget all about the paper you have to write for Western Civ.
Not that I know from experience.....Dad.
Back to Chili's in Singapore.
Here's Aaron with our free chips and salsa coupon.
And me with the baby back ribs sign.
Why is it impossible for any man to go to Chili's and not sing the "Baby Back Ribs" song from Austin Powers?
Argh! I had to listen to it all through dinner.
In case you've forgotten it, I've added it to the end of this post. I apologize ahead of time for getting it stuck in your head too. I just can't suffer alone. :)
Dinner on the other hand, was great. No, we didn't have baby back ribs. What we did have tasted and looked just like what we get at home. Same quality, same presentation, same applewood smoked bacon. We all know how I feel about bacon.
The only thing that looked different than the Chili's at home was the bill.
It made my bank account hurt. It also made me wish I was at a hawker. With a huge plate of $2 pineapple rice.
I guess that's one way to get me over the homesickness.
