Smocky Jack (Re-visited) | Penang Restaurant


My first visit to Smoky Jack was a pleasent one. The set lunch in their menu attracted me, and I went back for their set lunch with my buddies. But this encounter is not as pleasent as the first one though. I’ll talk about it later in the end of the post. Let’s talk about food first. 

Smoky Jack offers 3 categories of set lunch; Set A: RM 15.80++, Set B: RM18.80++ and Set C: RM 25.80 – Rm 28.80. Their set lunch comes with either soup of the day or salad and dessert. There’s no drink comes together with their set lunch though. 

Complimentary bread which tasted good.

Smoky Jack (Ribs & Steak House) | Penang Restaurant


There’s a newly opened restaurant in town which adopt the ‘theme’ design. Theme based design restaurant is blooming around us. It’s kind of like ‘life after end of world + outer space‘ theme to me.

From the exterior, you’ll see a lot of tree branches ‘growing’ out from the restaurant. CreepY?

This restaurant is located at Upper Penang Road just beside Segafredo. No problem to locate this restaurant right. Anyway, as usual I’ll post a link of the map to it at the end of the post. So, no worry ya :)

Let’s talk about food before I proceed with the interior environment. When we entered the restaurant that Friday night, the restaurant was quite packed with customers. And we noticed that there’s a few tables were put under reservation. We were seated in a table which is suppose to cater for 4 person. Since the tables for 2 are fully occupied, it left us no choice.

Ribs – Thumbs up except… | Penang Restaurant

It was raining cats and dogs that Friday night and we were hunting for dinner. Our planning was Miyako Izakaya which was located at Penang Road but the parking is not convenient at all. I’m sure we’ll be drench in that heavy rain. So, changed plan again.

Round and round we went, and we came to Ribs. There’s a spot for parking just right outside the restaurant, so we delay no more and decided to dine there.

Once we got our car parked, there’s a waiter came out with umbrella to guide us into the restaurant without getting wet. OMG! Good impression.

Once we are seated in the non-smoking area, the waiter produced us with menu. He showed his uttermost good manner when he served us all the way through our dinner. Good impression again!

To avoid being stuffed until too full, we decided to order one appetizer, one main course and one drink to share among 2 of us.

Quesadillas – very hard to pronouce. It’s a thin crust pastry stuffed with some cheese, tomato, lettuce and ham. It tasted so appetizing and it’s packed with all those ingredients. Yummy dish!

We ordered a combo of BBQ ribs and chicken as our main course. It contain 3 pcs of ribs and 1 pcs of drumstick. The ribs is very tender and the BBQ sauce taste just right. I prefer the ribs and then chicken.

Ice blended cappuccino – Taste good. Coffee taste is thick enough.

After the main course, my mouth is icthy for dessert. Hehe… At first I planned to order a moist chocolate cake, but the waiter recommend Medley of Desserts to us. According to him, there are 3 types of desserts in this Medley thing.

When the dessert was served, I was shocked to see the size of it. It was like the food served in Alice in Wonderland. So tiny.

Dessert 1Forgot the name for this. But taste bad. The egg is so hard.

Dessert 2

A mini version of the moist chocolate cake. It’s just one mouthful big. Another surprise for me when I put the cake into my mouth. It tasted warm… I think they must have preheat the cake in a oven before it was served. The cake is hard. Taste bad again.

Lastly, it’s a sago gula melaka dessert. But I can’t recall the exact name of it. There are 3 layers in this dessert, vanilla ice-cream, gula melaka and sago (from top to bottom). The opening of the ‘tube’ is so small that you can’t even dig the small spoon into it. End up we need to pour the sago out. Taste wise- *thumbs down*
