Yet another food court find: this time from 'The Boulevard'. Jewel of Asia stands out for large serves ... good food and lashings of it.
My favourite is Steak and Dalo (with an optional fried egg on top). $7.50 will buy you enough dalo to feed a small family and slabs and slabs of tender, well marinated meat (picture below). A bit of salad on the side rounds out this substantial, and very tasty meal.
A warning: it takes real effort to finish. I attempted this item several times before I figured out how to build up the appetite to get all the way through. And if you can come at a full dinner after having this for lunch, you either work in construction, or have a weight problem.
Other good value for money items are roast chicken with dalo, the chicken and cashew, and the chicken chowmein (below). All the meat dishes come with a lovely gravy that has just the right amount of chilli in it.
Eating in is recommended: you'll need the walk back to the office afterwards, but they do takeaways as well.
