I went to Botak Jones hoping to try some decent western food one day, and I thought it would be nice since people were queuing for it and talking about it; it was even broadcasted on one of the foodie shows by Mediacorp.
I ordered fish and chips and my mom got a chicken chop. It was horrible. The fish is almost tasteless, which I could only make do with it by dipping into the tartar sauce. The chicken was dry and is just, totally not worth the money. The fries are just the usual normal fries.
The portion is okay, the price is a little pricer than the usual hawker western food. I don't see the point of eating Botak Jones again, with mediocre food priced at a steeper end for hawker western food.
I'm done with you, Botak Jones! ( I sound like an exasperated girlfriend, haha) But honestly, no matter how many times I tried to Botak Jones another chance to prove that they can give me better food, i always get disappointed.
Like many commercialised food chains, their food quality tends to decrease when they expand into numerous branches all over the island. I remember the fries being soggy and tasteless, I felt like I was eating cardboard. (Not that I have tried) Their chicken was also dry and overcooked. I'm not saying these based on a one-off experience. I have a Botak Jones branch just across the street from my place and trust me when I said I have given them plenty of chances.
What happened to the "damn good food" you promised, Botak Jones?!
