I few weeks ago, I wrote about Botak Jones, a Western food stall that has branches in several coffee shops in the heartland regions of Singapore. This past weekend, I finally got to try the food, and it was sedap! *
The portions served were really generous. And, even though we were told we might have to wait 30-45 minutes (it was Saturday night, and crowded), the food actually came out very quickly. The prices were good, and the coffee shop atmosphere makes it feel like a hassle-free evening.
I ordered the chilli dawg (HUGE!!!!), while others in my group had the burgers (excellent!), steaks (juicy and tender -- wonderful), and fish and chips (I didn't try that one), and we had a big bowl of gumbo to share to get us started. All enjoyed the meal immensely. We did decide we would have been better off if we'd ordered one meal less. There were 4 adults and 2 kids, and we ordered 5 meals. We thought that it would've worked out better if we'd just let the kids share with us, rather than ordering a separate meal for them to share. As it was, we didn't quite manage to finish all of the food on the table.
We visited the Ang Mo Kio branch (Block 608 AMK Ave 5). The service was efficient and pleasant. The food was really good. All round, it was just a pleasant evening out.
There are also branches in Toa Payoh, Tuas, and Clementi. I think there's at least one more location, but I can't remember where it is. It's alright... I will definitely go back, and I can look it up then.
* "sedap" is Malay for delicious
