Botak Jones@Clementi

A, S and us had a wonderful dinner at the famed Botak Jones branch in Clementi. We have long heard of this jumbo sized, good value for money Western food stall but have never found time to pay them a visit. It was really an eye opener seeing a fully packed Kopitiam@ 8.30pm with most table ordering from this particular stall.


Stuffed Jalapenos: The guys are really generous with their sauces. We had a variety of malt vinegar, home made tartar sauce, Plouchman’s mustard, HP steak sauce besides the usual chilli and ketchup.The stuffed jalapeño is really awesome. Crunchy breaded outer skin covered the hot jalapeños while creamy mozzarella cheese stuffed the inner part. Dipped with the homemade tartar sauce.. it is simply heavenly. Two thumbs up!

Fish and Chips@6.50sgd: Big portion of fish and chips. No smelly fishy smell here and it was a beauty to munch on these with malt vinegar and the homemade tartar sauce. I don’t think it is out of this world but it is definitely a heart warming fish and chips that did not hurt our wallet!


Double Botak Burger: Doubled the patties, doubled the fatties, and double the shiokness! The patties were medium rare and it was tender and juicy. No complains here but it could be further improved if they could grilled the cheese before serving it. The cheese was a tad chilled when served to us. The coleslaw was so good that we all took them all in! It wasn’t excessively loaded with vinegar as found in many other hawker stalls. BURP!!

Cajun Chicken: Tender grilled chicken topped with melted grilled cheese and Cajun spices. The chicken was well grilled and lock in heaps of nice sweet grill flavour. Good!
Aftermath: All cleaned up.

Damage: 33.50SGD for 4 of us. 3 main dish and 1 appetizer. The portion are huge and it is good food with unbeatable value. It was definitely a fantastic experience here today. I will be back!

Lok Lok Eating House@Tiong Bahru

Demona: We met my best friend, Ann at Tiong Bahru Complex. Our initial plan was to venture to the Tiong Bahru Market for dinner, but we found out that it would take us a good 20 minutes walk there and at the same time, it started to drizzle.

Demona: Ann brought us across the road to this restaurant, Lok Lok Eating House. Her sister had already eaten here a couple of times here and gave her positive reviews on their food. Since nothing else seemed interesting, we decided to settle down at this shop.

Demona: Dogma ordered a plate of spicy chilli squid for the 3 of us. SGD 10. The sauce was salty and extremely spicy! I thought the squid was a little over cooked though, due to its shrunk size and rubbery texture. This dish was average to me. Dogma was perspiring like crazy after a few spoonfuls of spicy chilli squid. He raised the white flag half way through and the CHILLI GOBBLER happily wiped the plate clean.

Demona: We also ordered a plate of fried pork ribs. SGD 8. I did not think this was a good style of cooking. Chicken pieces would probably fit this style of cooking more than pork ribs. The meat was too little and tough for this kind of frying. The bones were present more than the meat.

Demona: Guilty of wiping it clean.

Demona: Dogma however, enjoyed the pork ribs, getting his fingers all messy, chewing bits of meat on the ribs from one end to the other, like munching steamed sweet corn. The pict showed what was left of the ribs.

Verdict: The meal cost us SGD 18. Binjai Park is definitely a better place for chinese food, as I am willing to add in a few more dollars for more fairly generous portion of delicious dishes rather than just 2. At least, the dinner would feel more satisfyingly complete.
