Restaurant Review: Applebee’s Mall of Arabia (Lunch Offer)

As we planned our trip to Jeddah, Derick and I were already decided to have our monthsary lunch date at a Seafood Restaurant in Mall of Arabia. Sadly, the restaurant was already closed. Instead of getting disappointed, we both agreed to have our lunch at any restaurant nearby. It was then we decided to eat at  Applebee’s. Having had a good dining experience at Applebee’s before, it was an easy choice for us.

Just like our first visit, we were greeted by a friendly staff. Curiously, I asked the waiter if they have anything special to offer that day. He opened the menu and brought our attention to their Lunch Offer. He also informed us about their Diners Elite Rewards Program and encouraged us to download the app to get extra freebies every time we dine at any participating restaurants.

Lunch Offer are choices of One Starter + Main Course + soft drink or lemonade for only 41 SAR per person. Additional 10 SAR to get a delicious Brownie Shooter dessert.

Lunch Offer Menu features a variety of mouthwatering dishes to choose from. For our starters we ordered Fried Calamari and Spicy Boneless Wings. Both dishes come with  dipping sauce.

The Fried Calamari was perfect. It was crispy delicious and well seasoned. The Spicy Boneless Wings, however, was a bit intense but it was still delicious. You have to dip it in tartar sauce to balance the flavor and have a bite of the celery stick to neutralize the spicy taste in your palette.

For our main course, I had Three Cheese Chicken Penne and Derick had Countrystyle Fried Chicken with mashed potato and veggies. Both dishes were well presented and had huge portions. What can I say, my pasta was perfectly cooked and the grilled chicken was delicious. Derick had a clean plate afterwards so I guess he enjoyed his food fully. I didn’t finished my pasta to be honest. Although it was good the serving was far too big for me. I had my leftovers for takeaway.

After a satisfying meal, here comes the dessert. I always have room for sweet indulgence. It is something I always look forward to after every meal. This time I had the yummiest dessert – Applebee’s Brownie Shooter. The combination of chocolate and brownies with vanilla ice cream was heavenly. I loved it! It’s a must-try.

It was actually Josmar (our waiter) who suggested that we try Applebee’s hot beverages. He convinced us to try their cappuccino. He was right, their cappuccino was very good and I would definitely have another cup of this beverage the next time we visit Applebee’s. The cappuccino matches perfectly with the churros we ordered. By the way, The churros here  is one of the best I ever had.

If you haven’t tried Applebee’s Lunch Offer, don’t think twice. Go to the nearest Applebee’s branch you can find. I guarantee you it’s totally worth every riyal spent. Take advantage of their Lunch Offer and use the Diners Elite app to enjoy Weekly Offers .

To recap, Derick and I were both happy that we ended up having our Monthsary lunch here. Even if things didn’t turned out as planned we both still had an amazing time. The food was awesome and the service was excellent. Great value for money indeed. We can’t wait to be back soon.
