Jack’s Place (Jurong Safra)

As Safra Members and also in the area, we decide to grab dinner at the Jurong Safra (10% off total bill). We are not fans or buffet and the Japanese food didn’t appeal to us, so we chose Jack’s Place.

We ordered My New England’s Fish & Chips ($14.50), Grilled Chicken Steak ($15.80), Honey Flower with Mango Pearl ($4.20) and Mushroom Soup ($5) and Salted Egg Molten Lava Cake ($8.90).

The Fish and Chips’s fish was crispy like Appalam. Its  flesh was soft and juicy. The  fries were thick and salty.

The chicken chop will grilled to flavour and I really like the baked potato. The waiter came to our table with an array of sauces and condiments on a tray for us to choose from to go with the baked potato.

The mushroom soup was Campbell’s soup with two slices of garlic buttered bread.

The honey drink was the stereotypical honey water. I, however, was impressed with the mango pearls (at the bottom of the drink, very translucent). They popped like fish eggs in my mouth. It was definitely an unfamiliar sensation.

The salted egg lava cake was quite disappointing. I expected more of a thick salted egg powdery texture but got a sweet syrupy filling instead. To add, the filling was contaminated with chocolate lava which overwhelmed the already bland salted egg sauce.

The total bill came to slightly under 50 bucks(after 10% off) for two person which I felt was not very reasonable for the quality you get.

Hope you enjoyed reading!

Chocolate Origin: Lava Cake (Ang Mo Kio)

Yesterday after dinner, we had a craving for something sweet. Since we were in the area, we decided to get Chocolate Origin Lava Cake. I have heard that their Lava Cake is legendary from my friends.I have tried their cakes before and they never disappoint. It’s like richness of cream, cocoa and cake exploding in your mouth.

You can choose to have your Lava Cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream ($5.50) or just the Lava Cake ($4.95) alone. I have tried their Lava Cake with the vanilla ice cream which wasn’t impressive. Thus, I opt to go without the ice cream. To add, it’s also cheaper.

The Lava Cake tastes best when it’s piping hot. The chocolate filling is smooth, creamy and not too sweet which is what I love about the lava cake here. I have tried the salted caramel lava cake from Cali “Grill and Bar” in Holland but the taste was confusing. I still prefer the original chocolate lava cake.

I would recommend the Chocolate Origin Lava Cake to anyone and everyone! Who doesn’t love hot chocolate flowing out of a cake?
