Some Things Never Change @ TGI Friday’s Malaysia – dinner of ribs and Mocha Mud Pie

Other than the beloved phrase everyone utters in relief when the weekend comes around, TGIF is a popular casual dining restaurant that had its first outlet in Malaysia in 1994.
A decade later, there’s a TGIF branch in almost every mall in the country and some in office buildings.

My favourite orders were the ribs and I’ll always end the meal with a Mocha Mudpie. Yesterday I was in Mid Valley and decided to treat my friend to an indulgent mudpie since she was rather down in spirits lately. Sitting down, we started with the Mocha Mudpie but ended up with an order of ribs and a steak as well!

Nothing better than a gooey hot chocolate over ice cold ice cream to take away the blues yes?

Once I tasted meat I need more meat. So here’s a medium rare rib eye with sides of broccoli and beans blend (as per printed on the menu) and the mash. God I love mashed potatoes.


We polished everything off. While the BBQ Ribs (RM59.90) could be less stringy, the rib eye was medium rare as requested.

But it was the Mudpie that did the trick. Some things never change.

  1. i have nice memories of gatherings at tgif back when i was in my 20s (a long time ago, heh). and it’s always reassuring to know they’re around and still providing hearty fare … haven’t had their ribs in ages 🙂

      I thought it was rather overly oily and seasoned.
