Mad Jack (Parkway) again

Seriously, eversince Banquet at level 4 went defunct, I find that we Muslim's aren't left with much choice to eat (esp. when it comes to cheap/local fare). Even Kartini Indonesian Restaurant & Siam Kitchen somewhat disappeared from their store listings. What's available, tell me?

- Pastamania
- Swensen's
- Coffee Bean Tea Leaf
- Mad Jack


Guess we're resigned to chomping at the nearby hawker centre before coming by here, should we prefer local fare. Tough luck.

That's why you've been seeing a whole lot of Mad Jack entries in here. And here's more.

Came by with the 3 guys in my life. My hubby, brother & kiddo (my dad should have completed the picture). Running errands here. Otherwise, we wouldn't have bothered with Parkway Parade (anymore).


Fried, battered mushrooms. Very nice to eat but I realise that whatever gave these their round shape (self-raising flour??) also make them pretty greasy.

Linguine Carbonara

With chicken ham & fresh button mushroom. Ordered this to share with my kiddo.

In the background is hubby's Turkey Bacon Beef Burger & Chips.


I mentioned in passing, to my bro about the Pavlova that they have in the cakes display area. I know that he had always been curious about meringues and their likes so I bet he'll feel the same about this one.

He excitedly left his seat to take a look and disappeared for sometime. He later came back, grinning like a Cheshire cat.

Pretty soon, this was served to us. Even BEFORE our mains arrived. That's how curious my brother was.

Needless to say, he LOVED this. Sweet meringue, crispy outside, marshmallow soft inside with bland whipped cream and tart fruits. What's not to like...?


Next up is what I had during lunch with my colleagues, one day. Coincidentally, all of us seem to be in the mood for some burgers. 

Turkey Bacon Beef Burger & Chips

I admit to some food envy the previous time I was here. Burger King's Turkey Bacon double has always been my favourite and when my hubby ordered this previously, I vowed to have this the next time I come here.

In the background was my colleague's Mad Cow Burger & chips set, which is a part of the lunch set and cost only $9.90 (with soup & soft drink).

Blue Mountain Burger & chips

My male colleague must have be hungry when he ordered this. 3 beef patties with tomato, pineapple, cheese & caramelised onions.

If you think that is is crazy, there's also the Extreme Blue Mountain burger, which comes with FIVE patties!

Anyway, all of us were initially excited at the prospect of eating homemade beef patties but we realise that they used wayy too much fillers with the meat (which also explain the weird UFO shape). And they cooked this with too much oil, hence the patty appeared a lil' over-fried. Even crispy outside.

Taste a lot like beef nuggets...

I guess, I've had my expectations too high with their burgers... I'll stick to Botak's Favourites, next time.

I'm running out of ideas as to what I want to eat when I drop by Parkway Parade. I guess Swensen's fare better, after all. Especially when the pasta craving sets in....
