Heard about this place many times already, but didn't really have a chance to visit it due to its inaccessibility for me. After meeting my girlfriend after school one day, we decided to give it a try and went to the clementi outlet.
The coffeeshop itself had quite a few stores but 8 out of 10 tables were eating from Botak Jones, while 1 were eating from another italian store and the remaining one split among the bak chor mee, cai fan and whatsmore (kinda pity their business actually). Their serving style reminds me of Astons Express where you ordered from a counter first before picking up a number stand.
Fish & Chip ($6.50) + Sunny Side-up ($1.00)
The batter was crispy and they used pacific dory which were lighter and lesser of the frozen taste. There were only two choices for side dishes that day, the coleslaw was abit too wet while the french fries were fresh and sprinkled with savoury cajun powder. They do provide malt vinegar for the fish & chips, which i preferred over chilli/ketchup sauces. Overall I felt that they have done it better than Aston's.
I wasn't feeling exceptionally hungry that day, so I went for the single patty burger. The hand-pounded non-frozen (as they claimed) minced beef was big, juicy and grilled just nice, with a slight pink in the middle. Topped with a layer of melted cheese, together with the toasted bun, abit of my add-on egg and some earthly shitake mushroom, all in one bite. Omph! You should have seen others ordereing the double, or even triple patty burger. That will take a real hungry carnivore to devour it all!
Good quality, pleasent service and affordable price, a nice place for no-frills western. I heard one of the outlet had the orignal Mr Jones at it. Btw, do give the coffeeshop's homemade lemon tea a try if you want a drink, refreshing and not-too-sweet. Will be returning on a very very hungry day!
