Late Date Night at Applebee's

Weeks back, I rendered extra hours at work and missed a scheduled date night with my husband. Ed was already in dreamland when I went home. I eventually woke him up, so I asked if he still wants to go out. It was 10:30 pm, by then the restaurants at the mall nearby were about to close. We decided to check the restaurants along Sheikh Zayed Road, where food outlets are open until 2 am. 

An hour before midnight, we hailed a taxi and and head straight to Applebee's. Surprisingly, the restaurant was still packed when we arrived and we still need to sign up on the waiting list.

Our empty stomach endured the 15-minute wait. Then, we were assisted to the restaurants' second floor.

I always love Applebee's cool clutter  of good stuff on the walls 
Collections on the Wall
The restaurant's wall is filled with everything and anything: flags, collectibles,
framed photos of  touristy spots and even inspirational quotes.

We had a quick run through the menu and ordered was we usually have at Applebee's, beef ribs! 

Complimentary Mozzarella Nuggets
The wait staff offered complimentary mozzarella nuggets while we were
waiting for our late night meal. 

Oriental Chicken Salad
Apart from the ribs, I also ordered the Oriental Chicken Salad.
(veggies topped with grill chicken and almonds with oriental vinaigrette dressing)

Duoble-glazed beef rack ribs

We were not able to finish the whole rack, half of it went inside the take-away box and we feasted on it
the next day! 
The succulent meat drizzled with sweet barbecue sauce was worth the wait. The oriental salad was a bad start though. It didn't quite went well with our main entree as both tasted sweet. Next time, I'll stick to our usual choice on the salad menu, the Applebee's Taco Salad with the creamy ranch dressing.
