Who says hearty American fare doesnt belong in a Singapore coffeeshop? Botak's Favorites brings Halal certified burgers, hot dogs and fries into the heartlands, promising quality food and service at damn good prices.
I really like the cajun chicken because the size of the chicken is larger than my palm. It's topped with lots of melted cheese and with the cajun marinade, it makes my mouth water just thinking about it.
You can pick two out of the many side dishes they offer, but I picked the corn and cajun fries.
The cajun fries are a good complement to the meal and are flavoured perfectly. The corn is also steamed and buttered. Sinful, yummy goodness.
I will be back to try out their other dishes!
The food was average at best. Portion was fair. Ordered Cajun chicken set and fish and chips. Chicken was so-so, with meager topping which I was thankful for as it was not very nice. The top-up for cheese mashed potato was terrible. It was microwaved and was edible but tasted funky. You can see for yourself in the photos.
Was there on a Saturday afternoon and students were occupying most of the seats.
Did not wait very long for the food, approximately 10-20 minutes as stated in the receipt.
And our orders:
1) Botak Set (Wanted to order the bigger one but was told it was not available), with coleslaw, double baked cheese potato, sauteed onions & 2 slices of cheese.
The cheese is chargeable at $1.00 but wasn't informed by the cashier. She just asked if I wanted cheese.
This was partner's order and he seldom ate so much. He was enjoying himself and commented "Cheaper and better than Swensen's!"
Portion is huge and they are generous with the additional sides, until partner had to give me most of the sauteed onions.
As I enjoy my meat with a little blood, the meat with the burger doesn't suit my taste because the meat was well-done.
The double baked cheese potato (I thought it was baked potato with cheese but it was mashed potato with cheese) tasted great! Additional 0.80 if you order this side.
2) Ribeye Steak (Medium rare) with vegetable stew, spicy fries & shitake mushrooms
Partner was puzzled by this action : Server waited while you test the meat. Which is good because they will change it for you if it's not done to your satisfaction!
He also commented that the meat was very tender.
The vegetable stew consisted of carrots, onions and mostly celery if I dun recall wrongly. As I dislike celery, I only ate the carrots & onions, resulting in many leftovers.
The spicy fries was served hot and crispy, kinda like a perfect combination with the steak.
We enjoyed the meal thoroughly and it looks like we will be visiting soon.
