Botak Jones returns to Bukit Merah

If you’re celebrating the news of impending freedom to dine out again, here’s more reason to rejoice. Botak Jones, hit Western fare eatery, is back in action with their upcoming stall in Yue Hua Eating House at 118 Depot Lane, near Bukit Merah. According to a post on their Facebook page, The Original Botak Jones will be available for delivery, and self-collection, starting from 14 June!

They’ve been around since 2003, when Mr Bernard Utchenik, better known as Bernie, founded the first outlet in Tuas, later spawning multiple outlets islandwide, and a Big Bern’s American Grill concept at Timbre+, and Gluttons Bay, all of which eventually closed last year.

In line with the brand’s return, which their Facebook page heralds as being “revived with the original recipes”, the logo has also seen a refresh. It still depicts an outline of Bernie’s iconic botak head, but the text sees an upgrade from “Botak Jones: Damn Good Food At A Damn Good Price” to “The Original Botak Jones… Still Damn Good”. We sure hope so!

While the menu at Depot Lane is yet to be confirmed, we hope that they will still be serving the good ol’ American classics they used to be famed for. Looking at their uploads on Facebook, these include fan favourites such as Cajun Chilli Cheese Fries, Cajun chicken, steak, lamb chops with mushroom sauce, and burgers.

According to comments on their Facebook page, where fans have appealed for the return of Stuffed Jalapenos, this hit item will not be on their launch menu, as they will be taking the return to business slowly.
