Many restaurants have started their own promotions to attract customers given the current economic recession, and Chicago's Steakhouse at Orchard Cineleisure is just one of them. Coupon leaflets, just like the one you see below, have been handed out in the past couple of weeks with simply enticing one-for-one main course, tapas and dessert offers.
If you do not have the coupons, don't worry, because I remember that there was a chalkboard just outside the restaurant that seemed to be promoting a similar one-for-one offer as well, but probably more in terms of set meals.
You can't go wrong with these fries. Served hot and crispy, these fries tasted really good with the cool tartar sauce.
Grilled Calamari: 7/10
No rubbery texture, which is good, but somehow seemed to be lacking in taste. I reckon the deep-fried calamari would probably have tasted better.
BBQ Half Spring Chicken: 7.4/10
The chicken was very tender and I really liked the gravy that came with it. This dish would have been better though if the portion was a tad larger (don't be taken in by the picture).
Fish and Chips: 5/10
The picture on the menu actually showed two fish fillet slices, but there was only one small one to be seen. Gerald joked that since this was a one-for-one promotion, all the restaurant did was to split the two pieces between two different plates. The fish was really ordinary and comparable to those you can easily find at heartland foodcourts and hawker centres.
Root Beer Float
Cool it all down with a nice (albeit, small) glass of root beer float! =)
Excellent, you could see that the trainee staff was really doing her best to please her customers, being all smiles with good manners.
