Had the ngoh hiang platter and tobiko ball prawn noodles and enjoyed both dishes. Soup broth was really rich and flavourful and was served with fresh prawns. Especially liked the fried beancurd from the platter which paired well with the chili sauce. Simple but done well! On the pricier end for a bowl of prawn noodles but portions were generous and ingredients seemed quite premium. Worth a visit!

It has been a long time since I last ate Botak Jones! As a kid, I loved their fish and chips and double baked cheese potato! They have since reopened in Singapore with 4 outlets in Singapore!

Here are the items we tried on a recent visit!

Haddock Fish n chips: This haddock fish and chips is definitely worth it! It still tastes as good as how I recall it to be! This premium haddock version has a meatier texture and I love it!

Fish n chips (dory): If the haddock fish and chips are slightly pricey to you, go for the dory fish and chips! It is also good! You can choose between the Pacific Dory or White Basa!

Botak Burget Set: We opted for the well done beef patty! The flame-grilled beef patty was super juicy and flavourful!

Black pepper Chicken set: This chicken set came with chicken breast meat, so do note it is slightly drier. I love the mushroom sauce that coats the black pepper chicken breast meat though!

For the above set menu items, you can opt for two sides (some sides come with additional premium charges):

Chicken Gumbo Soup: Have heards lots about this soup so decided to give it a go! Reminds me of chinese chicken soup for some reason! Has sausage and chicken meat in it!

Mushroom Soup: This mushroom soup was very thick and creamy, with many sliced mushroom bites in it!
Double baked cheese potato: My all time favourite sides! It is #stilldamngood !

Spicy Cajun Fries: Crispy fries! What is not to love about this!

Not-spicy fries: Surprisingly, i preferred the not-spicy fries to the spicy cajun fries!

Coleslaw: If too much fried food and fries is too much for you to handle, get this!

Butter Rice: Of all the sides, this was our least favourite. It reminded me of nasi lemak rice for some reason.
P
For drinks, we tried the Citron Lemon Soda, Super Berries Soda and Lychee Soda! Super refreshing and thirst quenching! They were also not too sweet!

If your stomach still has space, end off the meal with NY cheesecake!

Recommend the traditional Ngoh Hiang as sides with the delicious prawn mee!

Ordered the soup version of the Supreme Prawn Noodles and I was shocked by how much meat there was in the broth. The broth is rich and flavorful while the meat portions were generous, consisting of clams, pork ribs, prawn balls, fresh prawns and shabu shabu. We have also ordered 豆干 and 猪肉五香 to go with the prawn noodles. The 猪肉五香was crispy and goes well with the sweet sauce provided. Walked away from this place with a really full and satisfied stomach. Definitely one of the best prawn noodles I tried in Singapore. Will definitely visit again!! 10/10

4⭐ Purposely came here to try their Bahn Mi since we are on the way to elsewhere as location is too far from my house. I had the grilled pork bahn mi which is delicious. The baguette is freshly baked inhouse. The baguette is thin and very crispy. WB had the spicy beef noodle and he prefers the one here than Co Chung. The broth is more spicy here and there's no weird smell for the meat.

Ordered the dried version of the Braised Pork Rib & Prawn Noodle and would definitely give it a 10/10 rating. Broth was piping hot when served and the broth is flavourful and well-seasoned. A protein rich meal with generous portions of fresh prawns and pork ribs, which were succulent and tasty. Definitely one of the best prawn noodles I tried in Singapore, and the prawns served are fresh and chewy. Also ordered the 豆干 and the 猪肉五香 as sides to go with the prawn noodles. I like how chestnuts are added into the Ngo Hiang, which gives an additional crunch to the dish. 10/10 and would come back again!!

Very flavourful broth and generous portion of noodles. Loved the ngoh hiong platter, crispiness and spices were on point. Would come back if in the area!

this has always been my fav from breadtalk together with Sunflower :)

The star of the meal would have to be the broth as it is thick and flavorful. The prawn is also very fresh, but the pork ribs could have been softer. My recommendation would be to order the full prawns option. Ordered the ngoh hiang tasting platter and found that the best was the fried tofu as it complemented well with the chili provided.

One point for consideration is that the place does not have very good cooling system so it is better to visit when the weather is more cooling.

Overall I enjoyed dining here, service was fast and portions were generous. I had the dry prawn noodles with prawn balls, the soup was very very rich and flavorful. The dry noodles were pretty notable as well, with the tasty sauce and additional pork lard, while sinful was very tasty! The Ngor Hiang was nice, not too oily and well fried.

However, one feedback was that while there were fans, the place can get quite warm in this weather which might affect the dining experience.
