It’s been quite some time since our last visit to Botak Jones (BJ) and when the husband received an e-mailer from BJ on a V-day promotion – 2 mains + 2 soups + 1 salad + special V-day cake for only $44.90 nett, – we immediately hopped on the bandwagon and made our trip down to the nearest outlet – Bukit Batok kopitiam.Alas, BJ had past its heydays and all that were left were pockets of sweet memories to be relished and savoured…Char-grilled SalmonThe salmon steak was tiny (perhaps only half the
Alas, BJ had past its heydays and all that were left were pockets of sweet memories to be relished and savoured…
The salmon steak was tiny (perhaps only half the size of what we used to have?)and overcooked, resulting in a tough texture that didn’t appeal to the palette. Likewise, the cheese potato had also been downgraded… where’s the humongous portion of sinfully delectable cheesy mash potato back in the good-old-days?! The fries were the only thing that didn’t shrink but guess what, it was cold and hard, as in taken out of the fryer eons ago! Rib-eye Steak
The rich flavours of the rosemary infused steak, thankfully were still pretty much similar as what we used to have. However, the doneness was not right (the husband had ordered medium rare but somehow it turned out more of rare…), resulting in a bloody battle between man and cow. V-Day Cake
Needless to say, the v-day cake was nothing to shout about either. The icing was overly sweet and the chocolate cake, dry and crumbly. Seriously, BJ needs to buck up on their food quality and be more sincere with their promotional menu - not cut corners!
