A subsidiary brand under the JP Pepperdine Group, Jack's Place has carved out a special place in the hearts and appetites of Singaporeans through its popular steak houses, cake houses and professional catering service.
Went there on my birthday and ordered the Fire Steak! Was not disappointed with my medium rare steak. Service was also very warm and nice! As it was night time, ambience was dark and I think suitable for romantic dates/rendezvous. Will go back again!
Went to this particular branch with a friend and had Ribeye and Cod fish. The latter was actually pretty tasty, the potato and vegetables were good too.
Here comes the problem, the steak. For a restaurant calling itself a steak house, one would expect decent, or at least edible steak. That wasn't the case. The steak was ordered medium rare, it came slightly cold. One could tell how tough it was just through the effort needed to cut it, one cut required a minute or more of cutting.
Put it in your mouth? It felt like rubber bands woven together with woolen strings, it was so chewy that after 5 minutes of chewing (and the meat losing its flavour throughout the process), one would give up and just spit the meat out. Not only is that the case, the tough strings of fat get stuck between the teeth and were really difficult to remove. Chewing on the steak gave off a crunchy feeling, even erasers could be chewed through. This steak? No. Forget about the tenderness and juiciness, there's none of those.
Perhaps it is an off day, or perhaps it is only this branch that is so, I can only speak based on my experience. There is always that uncertainty, thus, I would not recommend steak from this place. Also, it seems like the last review of this place is from 2011, it is now 2015, perhaps it is not what it used to be. Even a $6 "steak" from coffee shop Western food stores is more edible.
This is my favourite Jack's Place outlet! Quiet environment with a great candlelight ambience. Good service as well. The set lunches are pretty value for money - large portions of good food and set lunch prices. Steak and lobster bisque remains my "must-order" dishes.
