Where to Date: Jack’s Place @ Bukit Panjang Plaza

We finished a nice hike through the woods today and since we’ve sweated so much, we decided to treat ourselves well today. So STEAK it was!

We headed to Bukit Panjang Plaza where we recalled there was Jack’s Place on level 2 of the mall, near Harvey Norman. We took our seats in a comfy booth and were handed the lunch set menu.

It was a Sunday, so I opted for the $19.80 meal which was N.Z. Ribeye Steak with Balsamic Shallot Sauce. I was delighted because the meal comes with soup, a garlic bread slice, tea or coffee, and dessert!

Here’s the soup of the day, MUSHROOM SOUP, which I LOVE. Shiok! Eat it while it’s hot. I left mine out for too long and let’s just say it’s a lesson learnt. 😦

Here’s the steak that came on a sizzling hot plate. The helpful waitress came and asked if I would like sour cream and bacon and of course I SAID YES.

I didn’t stand up and scream that I’ve been craving for steak for more than a month.

The meat was juicy and acceptable, but somehow, after having tried Lawry’s some time back, I felt that it could be more jucy. But how could I compare $19.80 steak to $100 steak? Haha. I would say that Jack’s Place’s steak does have value, and is acceptable for the price. 🙂

Here’s the final course – tea and a small slice of cake. I thought this was lovely. It’s rare for us to experience a full meal course.

Here, you can choose to sign up for the $30 JP membership, which comes with a complimentary dinner meal – full course as well.

Thank you Jack’s Place for fulfilling my steak craving! 🙂

Where to Bring Friends: The Coffee Connoisseur (TCC)

A friend of mine said that she had a 50% off voucher for TCC in the month of January (her birth month). Being the leech that I am, I tagged along for the lunch, hoping to try out TCC’s food!

The 8 of us settled in a long row of seats, which we had reserved a day before. Since it was 50% off, I decided to indulge in TCC’s Wagyu Burger.

It comes with a grilled wagyu patty, with tiger prawns, topped with homemade garlic shrimp floss and citrus-truffle dressing. I was pleasantly surprised when it came in a toasted charcoal bun! The greens weren’t much, but I was pleasantly surprised to find truffle fries on my plate.

Unfortunately, I would say that the burger couldn’t really satisfy me. The Wagyu wasn’t juicy nor tasty, though the prawns added a refreshing taste. It looks great visually, but I just couldn’t get the kick out of this burger.

What was I doing eating burger in a coffee place? 😦 I must have been mad!

At the end of the day, I was just so relieved to get that 50% off. Phew.
