I'm fairly broke these days and I will continue to be broke till the end of next year. Saving up for something big :) So it was a small relieve that Jack's Place offered lunch sets. Prices range from about RM15 to RM20 per person (as usual I don't remember the exact prices). Each set comes with soup of the day, garlic bread, an entree and is rounded up with coffee/tea and desert of the day. Main course selections vary with each day of the week.
The juice is not part of the set lunch. Soup looks nice doesn't it? The garlic bread was good but the soup was just ok. By the way the drink was lemon orange or something like that. Don't order it! Something about it doesn't taste right.
Sirlion steak with oyster mushroom sauce. I thought it was oyster + mushroom sauce but the two words are meant to be read together ;) Look at how they skimped on that sauce. Not that it mattered anyway because I think they left out the mushrooms when making the sauce. Luckily chilli sauce was within reach.
Chicken with almond sauce. ST liked this one and you can see the almonds in the sauce. I'm no fan of almonds so bleh ;p
A side order that turned out to be an utter waste of money. Mushrooms stuffed with crab meat and baked with cheese. Sure the texture feels like mushrooms but it tastes like cardboard cutouts. I'm not sure if even the venerable chilli sauce can save this dish.
And to round out the set lunch are the ever present coffee/tea and ice-cream. No comments here lah... you get this with every set lunch in every western restaurant in Malaysia.
Conclusion: Jack's Place is a waste of money. Don't think I'll ever go back. Like Dragon-i, some of the new restaurants in One Utama's new wing are turning out to be big disappointments.
