made another trip to jags cos of the great food i had the last time but was slightmy underwhelmed this time round. the steak took a while to be served and the cut of meat was chewy and full of tendons / cartilage. all that aside; the edible portion was approximately half the actual size of the steak. accompanying sides were good though, delish. But i have to add, the thing that annoyed me most was the lack of service. service seems be slow and lazy. i saw new guests seating themselves and never got acknowledged nor served. one couple looked completely frustrated and they left and went next door. for myself, i got frustrated trying to catch the attention of the surly waitstaff and went all the way in to place my orders instead. asking for the bill took forever as well. not surprisingly we didnt leave a tip. and oh, the table we were seated at? it wasnt wiped dry when we sat there (no other tables were available) so we wiped it up ourselves.
been here a few times for dinner and it never disappoints. main courses are hearty and comforting. special mention goes to the lamb shank and the bangers and mash. the former is tender and fall off the bone - scrumptious! the accompanying salad is great as well..the dressing is fantastic - just cant seem to put my finger on what it is though. mash is good, its not your lazy go to instant mash but real hearty potato mash. bangers and mash are good as well. flavourful sausages that are not your usual run of the mill cheap dogs. skip the appetizers / starters though. the calamari we had was unfortunately soggy and mushy...and the portion for the foie gras was pitiful. skip the starters and go for the mains. drinks are reasonably priced (10-14 per pint) the usual average prices in this area. the only con is that it gets crowded sometimes
Quite honestly, this is one of my favorite places in Singapore. Owned and operated by good people who are passionate about their food, their business, and their customers, this is where I come when I really want to just relax and have a good meal with an ice cold beer. Kit (the chef) is always working on the best plate possible and so some things on a plate may change here and there, but it is always good. And honestly, I like seeing someone who really just wants to serve the best food possible to make people happy.
