I decided to take half day today to fetch Tihani from school. I then brought her to lunch at J's Wok & Grill for lunch.
J's Wok & Grill is actually the defunct Jeewa Restaurant at Joo Chiat (if anyone can remember). It is managed by Jeewa Ltd and in cooperation with Jamiyah Singapore.
The cafe is really nicely decorated with a little touch of class if i might add. They serve both Oriental and Western cuisine. Just outside the cafe, we saw a recession lunch special banner. There're only three items to choose from though - Char Bee Hoon, Kampong Fried Rice and Fish & Chips. The place was quite packed when we arrived.
We chose Prawn Fritters (S$6.90) for our appetiser. It was a generous portion. The prawns were de-shelled, fried with batter to perfection and served with Thai chilli sauce. Oh, by the way, what you see in the picture below is not the real portion. Could not resist eating them before I could even take pictures.
For mains, we ordered from the recession menu. We had the Classic Fish and Chips(S$3.50), which was served with fries, coleslaw and a wedge of lemon.
We also tried the Kampong Fried Rice (S$1.95). I thought that they might skimp on the portion but I was wrong. Portion is standard. Wow!
The fried rice was really nice - spicy and served with fried anchovies, slices of cucumber, tomatoes and sambal belacan. I took the first spoonful and I discovered that this wasn't any plain ordinary kampong fried rice. It has ingredients such as fishcakes, squids and even small chunks of chicken in them. Amazing!
So where else can we expect normal portion food at really dirt cheap price?
The lunch special is served on Mon - Sun from 12 - 3 pm. Only for dine-in and subjected to the prevailing GST and NO service charge.
