Being a regular of Jurong Point, it is quite common that I will run out of food choices fast. Despite the bad experience I had the last round, I decided to give OldTown another try.
After flipping the menu over repeated times, I came to a decision that I should have their Asam Laksa. It mentioned to customers that this dish might contain fish bones. As the dish was served, it somehow tells me off that this is just another bad choice. Presentation of the food is not of passing marks. With mint leaves and a small miserable piece of sardines and cut onions on the top among the pool of diluted Assam paste.
Bowl of Assam laksa is of mediocre standard. I will rate it 2.5 out of 5 marks.
Hainanese chicken cutlet looks great on the menu but dont get deceive by the outlook.
Looks great with fried egg white together with the plate of egg white, peas and sliced cucumbers. Presentation wise I will give it 3/5.
The chicken cutlet was just too saltish and there isnt any trace of sweet taste in the chicken meat.
Drinks are a let-down and a simply disastrous especially the chendol soya milk. The green jelly like substance tastes like a reminiscent of dried rubber-band. Both drinks are tasteless. Ice blended red bean in my impression wasnt this bad afterall! The overall reputation points of OldTown has been pulled down by this outlet.Service
Service is of average and waiting time is not that long.Ambience
Ambience is so-so. No long queues and now I know why. Price
Over all 4 items cost an approximate amount of S$30.00 for 2 pax. Price is definitely not ok with the standard of food. ORecommendation / Tips
Quite surprised to see them accepting CASH and NETS payment only.
