TGIF - An american style restaurant. We decided to have our work's christmas do here because not only their food is reasonably price, also because the food is fantastically delicious!
They sat us down at a nicely decorated table with helium-filled ballons, crackers, confetti, and even a plate decorated in christmas features (see photo).
The christmas menu offers signature TGIF dishes. For £19.99 only we get a 3 course meal, well worth our money!

The bruschetta was made of "freshly toasted garlic ciabatta bread heaped with diced tomatoes, garlic and fresh basil. Drizzled with balsamic vinegar and sprinkled with Regato cheese." The bread, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, looks wonderfully delicious. Flavours well balanced with sweetness from tomatoes, sourness from balsamic vinegar with a tang from the fresh basil.
The Jack Daniel's Sesame Chicken Strips is a must-have starter! Chicken breasts coated in brown panko breadcrumbs and toasted sesame seeds, then seasoned with chilli flakes deep fried and tossed in the famous Jack Daniel's sauce. The chicken strips were crunchy to bite on and the meat was very juicy. Dipping the chicken strips into Jack Daniel's sauce was just perfect! Jack Daniel's sauce is perfect for marinating meat to be grilled or BBQed and it is also very popular as a diping sauce.
On to the main courses, we have Jack Daniel's Ribs, Jack Daniel's Shrimps and New York Strip Steak. As you may have guessed, all marinated, grilled and/or served with Jack Daniel's sauce.

Jack Daniel's Shrimps - "Crispy, plump, Cajun-battered shrimps served with ready for dipping Jack Daniel's Sweet 'n' smoky glaze. The shrimps deep-fried in batter looks crunchy and juicy at the same time. Again, dipping in the sauce lifts up the whole dish and makes it even better!

Of course...there will always be room for dessert.
We had the Chocolate Brownie Temptation, Mocha Mud Pie and Tennesse Toffee Pie.

Verdict - 10/10 for American cuisine!
