I guess I am one of those people who things most low-calorie restaurant food doesn't taste very good and for this reason, I was a bit skeptical to try out this menu. I was excited, but wary at the same time.
Applebee's. We don't get to go out very often and really welcomed this opportunity to get away for a few hours without the children. The Applebee's we chose to visit is in a different town from us and we were welcomed at the door by a friendly wait-staff and were seated immediately. No waiting!
In the Unbelievably Great Tasting & Under 550 Calories Menu we found several selections that looked mouth-watering. I also noticed that these dishes gave the Weight Watchers points for the particular dish so for those of you on WW, you can still enjoy these meals without ruining your diet! Several of our choices were: Savory Cedar Salmon, Roma Pepper Steak, Creamy Parmesan Chicken, Lemon Parmesan Shrimp, Napa Chicken & Portabellos and Signature Sirloin With Garlic Herb Shrimp.
Of course, we started off with some Honey BBQ Boneless Wings and French Onion Soup (these of course were NOT on the new menu) and to drink, I went with an ice water and Strawberry Lemonade. Sooo good! I think I ate most of the Boneless Wings too.......hmmmm....I'll blame it on the baby. HA! After we arrived at the restaurant, I realized that I had left my camera behind so there will be no personal photos...so sorry!! It was kind of dark in the restaurant too so I am not even sure how the pictures would have turned out. So, you will just have to trust me when I say everything looked amazing!!
Because I am a HUGE mushroom fan, I chose to try the Napa Chicken & Portabellos. To be honest, I cannot for the life of me find the menu choice my husband had but it had a 7 oz. steak, shrimp and vegetables. Our food came out quickly and it was hot too...something I don't always get when I eat out. Hot food is important to me and so that made me quite happy. The description of what I had was this: A grilled chicken breast topped with portobello mushrooms and onions smothered in a rich red wine sauce and our Parmesan cheese blend. Served over sautéed zucchini, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, red onions and crispy red potatoes. Oh goodness, when it came out it looked awesome! The chicken was cooked to perfection and was moist and tender. I didn't have to use my knife to cut it, that is how tender it was. The vegetables were perfectly cooked as well and the sauce just made the entire dish. The entire time I was eating I kept thinking to myself, "HOW could this only be 550 calories??????" It honestly tasted that good and I am not exaggerating. My husband enjoyed his steak as well and we appreciated the fact that the waitress asked him to cut into it upon receiving it to make sure it was cooked to his satisfaction. Of course, it was.
