I finally tried Botak Jones!

I've been wanting to try the famous burgers at Botak Jones ever since I first blogged about it earlier this month. So yesterday for dinner, I made a trip to the Botak Jones outlet at the Kopitiam at Block 325, Clementi Ave 5. You can also find Botak Jones at Yue Hua Food Place, Block 608 , Ang Mo Kio Ave. 5 and 32 Pioneer Sector 2, Sungei Kadut Eating House.

I arrived at the Kopitiam at 9pm and oh boy, it was crowded. 90% of all the tables there were occupied by people eating Botak Jones! That's how popular they are. I ordered their signature dish, which is the Botak Burger set meal- 150 grams of hand formed beef coated with melted cheese, served with lettuce, onions, tomatoes, two buns, and two mountain full of spicy fries and coleslaw. Each order placed takes roughly half an hour during peak time.



Now, I've heard that the burgers are really good but I was a tad disappointed after sinking my teeth into it. The beef came out medium well, so it was slightly juicy. You can tell them if you prefer yours to be done well and dry. Mine tasted pretty alright but I guess I was disappointed because I was expecting it to be really fantastic. Come to think of it, I think I still prefer my Whopper! I give the Botak Burger a 7.5 out of 10.



It's worth eating the Botak Burger once in a while but not like more than once a week unless you want to clog your arteries. They also serve other dishes besides burgers. Their fish and chips seem to be a favourite among those at the Kopitiam last night so you may want to give it a try when you are there.
