I have been patronising Jack's Place for a long time. Jack's Place is started by a Chinese from Hainan who learnt how to cook by joining the British Army as a cookboy. Used to visit its first outlet at Sembawang, called Cola Restaurant. Today, it has evolved to include several concept restaurants such as Eatzi Gourmet, Seafood Harvest, Brewbaker's, Hoshigaoka and Jack's Place under the JP Pepperdine Group.
Jack's Place currently has 15 restaurants in Singapore and specialises in western cuisine such as steaks. Visited its outlet at Ang Mo Kio on a weekend lunch.
Signature white and green checkered table cloth with a quiet ambiance.
I always come to Jack's Place during lunch to savour the Set Lunch which is valid daily from 11am to 230pm. My favourites are both from the Executive Set Lunch; N.Z. Ribeye Steak with Brown Sauce ($16) and N.Z. T-Bone Steak with Brown Sauce ($22.50). The Executive Set Lunch comes along with Garlic Bread, Soup of the Day, Day's Dessert and Coffee / Tea.
I ordered the N.Z. Ribeye Steak with Brown Sauce.
We also ordered the Mushrooms with Slipper Lobster & Crab Meat ($9.50).
The Soup of the Day was Broccoli & Leek Soup with Crab Meat! Generous portion of crab meat given. Delicious!
Presenting the Mushrooms with Slipper Lobster & Crab Meat ($9.50). Each piece of button mushroom was stuffed with a blend of slipper lobster and crabmeat, topped with cheese before baking. It was baked perfectly with melted cheese on top and at the bottom adding to the flavour. I wish that they were more generous with the slipper lobster and crabmeat. Be careful not to scald yourself as the metal parts are hot!
The N.Z. Ribeye Steak with Brown Sauce ($16) arrives on a sizzling hotplate along side with carrots, green beans, onions and baked potato. The brown sauce on top complement the steak well. I love the brown sauce! Customers can request for more brown sauce if required. Anyone knows how I can make the brown sauce?
The baked potato deserves a mention too. It was well baked, not dry not powdery. Topped with Sour Cream Sauce, Bacon bits and Spring Onions, it was yummy!
A satisfied meal at Jack's Place. That is why I have been patronising this chain of restaurant all these years. Steak at affordable prices. In addition, service was good. Water was refilled promptly. It was easy to get the attention of the staff.
