I was at Mad Jack Cafe because the price looked affordable and the menu was relatively attractive. The food left me in great disappointment. I had a Linguine Carbonara ($9.9) which came with mushrooms and ham. The linguine was grossly overcooked - it was soft! This won't do! The carbonara cream sauce was also EXTREMELY watery, though not diluted. My guess is they added lots of salt or MSG into the sauce. I've never eaten such substandard linguine carbonara before. The chicken ham was obviously those from the supermarkets. Overall, extremely disappointing.
I also had their Mad and Rich Chocolate Cake under the recommendation of the staff there when I asked what's their speciality. True enough, the cake was very rich and worth the money at $4.80. There was fudge, and some ganache in between the 2 layers. The cake helped the cafe regain some plus points but it was not enough to entice me to return. Certainly won't recommend this place!
