The hunt for the best mashed potato in Singapore, part 40
The hunt for the best mashed potato in Singapore continues. I received a tip-off from heritage-enthuasiast, Peter, to check out Botak Jones' cheese potato.
Following the tip-off, on 15 May 2009 I tried Botak Jones' cheese potato. This was said by the staff of Botak Jones to be Botak Jones' closest version to the mashed potato. I ordered a regular plate of Fish & Chips which costs $7 per plate. It comes with two sides. I chose of course the cheese potato and the coleslaw.
This chunky tasting cheese potato bears a tinge of aroma and taste of cheese. One can find bits of potato chunks in it. It has a rather gluey texture. It has its merits on its own.
I may not go back specially to Botak Jones to eat the cheesy potato since it doesn't seem to be offered on its own. Furthermore, I prefer the cheese potato to be served at a warmer temperature. Nevertheless, I could consider ordering the cheese potato as one of the sides the next few times that I eat at Botak Jones. It is quite a delightful choice compared to the usual fried fries.
With this post, I wish my friend to whom this series of mashed potato posts were dedicated to, a carefree and enthusiastic spirit.
