The Applebee’s New Under 550 Calories Menu
Yesterday evening the four of us are on the way going to Kuwait City, to try the newest burger resto in town when our friend, Rey Santos from Kout Food Group called and invited us for an Applebee’s food testing of their newest additional menu. We make a sudden u-turn and head our way to Gulf Road, where the said restaurant is located.
As we enter, a receptionist lead us to our table and give us the menu to choose to, while the Local Store Marketing Manager Mr. Courtney Tluczek, talk to us and present us their new menu and under 550 calories creations. They have 5 new creations and we just ordered 4 from them.
Our friend Daboi ordered the Sizzling Asian Shrimp and Brocolli.
Sizzling blackened shrimp top this skillet full of rice, brocolli, red peppers, sugar snap peas, water chestnuts, mushrooms, carrots and bok choy. Drizzled with a sweet and spicy sauce and topped with cilantro.
Tony ordered the Sizzling Chili Lime Chicken.
While Juan choose the Signature Sirloin & Garlic Herb Shrimp.
And as recommended by Mr. Tluczek, I ordered the Roasted Garlic Sirloin.
After waiting for about 15 to 18 minutes, the food arrived and it smells really good. We dig in and savor the food immediately. And even though the waitress didn’t ask us(me and Juan) on how we’d like our beef — if it’s medium rare or well-done, but our order was cooked as we wanted to be — medium well. Moreover, the taste of the grilled Portobello mushroom topped with cream spinach is excellent. All in all, the size of the serving is just right.
