16/6/2013 – Jurong – a upcoming central hub of the west, had a new mall opened on Saturday! JEM boasts unique shops that are usually only found in the city area. Feeling like coming here, me and X came here to take a look around on the 2nd day of opening, 16/6/2013. We found ourself a restaurant selling Turkish food that X wanted to try because it was selling kebab. We didn’t met K for quite some time so we asked him to have dinner with us as well.
Most of the foods on the menu were unavailable. Thus, we 3 shared these 3 dishes.
First up, we had Savory Chicken Kebab ($10.90++). These were really savory, although slightly hard to chew off. The butter rice was fragrant and complemented well with the kebab.

Next up, the Chunky Beef Kebab ($11.90++). As per the namesake, the kebab is chunky and sliced finely into thin pieces. These were chewy and tasted rich on flavour. Well complemented with the butter rice too.

Lastly, the Baked Chicken with Butter Rice ($13.90++). Oven baked, the chicken was well cooked and tender. The sauce well accomodated the chicken. Also well accomodated with the chicken rice.

The Turkish Lemonade ($3.50++) is garnished with mint leaves, giving it a cooling taste.
Me and X also shared a Sade Ice Cream ($15.90). Named My Way, it consists of 5 flavours: Mango, Raspberry, Sade, Hazelnut and Pistachio. It felt more like sorbet than ice cream. The taste was unique when compared to other sorbets/ice creams. The flavour and taste are stronger, which made both of us scooping up mouthfuls consecutively.
I will definitely come to this place, but only at a later time (just to make sure they have the items on the menu so that we can try the next time we go there!)
