Hungry Jack

17 May 2009

I was wondering if Hungry Jack is the foodcourt-offshoot of Halal western food chain Mad Jack, but a check on the Mad Jack website showed that this is not to be so. One Jack is mad, the other is hungry, how odd.

If anything, Hungry Jack appears to be a growing franchise chain of "Western" - Singapore style food at Koufu / Fork and Spoon foodcourts, and its affordable prices are certainly a draw for many. The one here at Novena is Halal-certified, though I'm not sure about the rest of its outlets.

And I apologise for the picture quality, taken with my Nokia N85. Not too bad, but definitely not as sharp as a digital camera.

Half Chicken Rotisserie: 6.8/10

I checked: "Rotisserie is a style of roasting where meat is skewered on a spit - a long solid rod used to hold food while it is being cooked over a fire in a fireplace or over a campfire, or roasted in an oven". The chicken here is somewhat comparable to the one at Barcelos, though while the latter is a little more tender with a little more marinate and spices, it is also more than twice the price. So it depends on what you're looking out for. They serve a butter muffin together with the chicken, which I found quite nice but definitely nowhere close to anything out of bakeries or pâtisseries. Still, it was a new complement. It would be better if the fries were more though.

Kimberly had the quarter chicken, and as you would probably realise, you could change your sides: coleslaw, fries or mashed potatoes.

Fish and Chips: 6.9/10

You need to like your fish and chips crispy and oily, like deep-fried chicken cutlets, otherwise this fish and chips won't appeal much to you. I found it quite tasty actually. I'm a fan of fried food, so I'm biased haha.

Chicken Chop Spaghetti

Justin had the spaghetti, and he mentioned that it's quite "value-for-money". It didn't look as appetising as mine though.

Very friendly and polite.

$8.20 for the half chicken rotisserie
$5.50 for the fish and chips
$5.90 for the chicken chop spaghetti

Level Four, Novena Square 2

Additional Comments
For our Muslim readers, take note that while all stalls at the Toa Payoh "Fork and Spoon" foodcourt are certified Halal, the same cannot be said for those at Novena Square 2. No signs of pork or lard though, so it really depends on how particular you are.
