Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore has launched their latest dining promotion at J65 restaurant, providing guests with a curated dining experience throughout the week. Presenting a series of culinary options to choose from, J65 presents a different theme with catchy hooks for each day – ‘Crab! It’s Monday’, ‘Tuesday’s Beef Yourself Up!’, ‘Wednesday’s Lobster Rock ‘n’ Roll’, ‘Thursday’s His Majesty the King Prawn’, ‘Hooked! Seafood Mania on Friday and Saturday’, and Sunday’s ‘Let’s Go Local’.
J65 – Eat Through The Week Buffet
Created especially for the hard worker who deserves the best, J65’s Executive Chef Frederick Kho added that their inspiration behind the themed menu lies in the monotonous regiment of work life, and that the true balance to enjoying the rest of the evening is to “give something to look forward to every night…with something for everyone”.
Aside to the themed specialty every day of the week, J65 also has several dedicated stations where you can watch chefs dutifully prepare your food! There’s the Asian Noodle station where you can order your laksa and prawn noodles from; the Penang Popiah station for your handcrafted roll of popiah, and a DIY rojak station for those who enjoy making it themselves!
If you love your crustaceans as much as we do, definitely plan for a meal here very soon! We were spoilt for choices with over 10 different Lobster dishes cooked in variations of styles. Among our favourites were the Singapore Lobster Laksa – cooked in a flavourful broth of traditional Laksa gravy, Roasted Lobster Bisque – soothing, comforting with chunks of lobster meat, and the Hand Tossed Lobster Roll – a handy sub-like-sandwich that’s refreshing and light to chow down.
Some of the more worthy mentions are definitely the Lobster With Dried Chilli and Lobster Jhenmidor.
The Lobster With Dried Chilli though sounding as simple as it is, was extremely delightful and was our favourite for the night. Not as spicy (which was a good thing for us), the lobster half-pieces which were cooked in their shell was evenly coated and by the end of the meal we were busy licking our fingers! We figured these could be soft-shelled lobsters as it didn’t have much lobster meat as we hoped, but nonetheless still enjoyable!
The Lobster ‘Jhenmidor’ which is probably an ode to the classic Lobster Thermidor with a ‘Jen’ spin to it looked and tasted great. Who doesn’t love succulent lobster meat baked in a creamy sauce topped with cheese? The dish looked like a ton of work, and we certainly did show our appreciation by savouring every bite. Also as per Wednesday night tradition, ladies can enjoy the first sampler Sangria for free and subsequently, one-for-one Sangria at $14++ the whole night long.
We got to try other favourites from each menu in the week, including Monday’s Black Pepper and Chilli Crab, Tuesday’s Roast Beef and Thursday’s King Prawns line-up. If you’re looking to reward yourself with a good feast for your tummy, definitely hit J65’s themed buffet real soon!
More pictures and information of each day’s menu below:
Monday: Crab! It’s Monday…
The worst day of the week is almost over, so why not celebrate with Salted Egg Crab, Black Pepper Crab and Homemade Crab Popiah.
There is nothing more manly than a big, beefy steak, so top Tuesday off with Roast Rib Eye with Condiments, Authentic Sup Ekor and Beef Rendang Tok. ‘Beer’ Yourself Up with Tiger Beer Draft for just SGD5++.
Wednesday: Lobster Rock ‘n’ Roll
Its hump day and with the week-end on the horizon, you can afford to let your hair down with a Hand Tossed Lobster Roll, Roasted Lobster Bisque and Singapore Lobster Laksa. As per Wednesday night tradition, Ladies can enjoy the first sampler Sangria for free and subsequently, one-for-one Sangria at $14++ the whole night long.
Thursday: His Majesty the King Prawn
Thursday sees the coronation of the King Prawn, with Baked Sea Salt King Prawns, Claypot Live Prawns in Herbal Broth and Penang Prawn Mee.
Friday and Saturday: Hooked! Seafood Mania
Finally, it’s the week-end! You deserve to indulge with night of fresh seafood including Fin de Claire oysters, lobsters, crabs, prawns and scallops.
Sunday: Let’s Go Local
Spend a lazy Sunday preparing for the week ahead with Lamb Briyani, Chef’s Signature Popiah, Fried Oyster Omelette and Teochew Braised Duck.
That’s not all you can look forward to during the weekly night buffets. Indulge in a wide variety of traditional nonya kuehs such as kueh lapis, kueh salat, ondeh ondeh and many more! Other dessert items include chocolate cakes, cheesecakes and there’s even a whole platter of delicious dessert shooters and jelly.
True to those words of wisdom, there was indeed something for everyone to enjoy when we arrived to feast in their Wednesday’s Lobster Rock ‘n’ Roll menu. Alongside the usual fare of mixed local specialties such as Beef Rendang, Singaporean Laksa and other global cuisines.
The ‘Eat Through The Week’ promotions are now available for dinner (from 6:00pm to 9:30pm from Sunday to Thursday and 6:00pm till 10:00pm on Friday and Saturday) at J65, Level 1 of Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore.
