I'm not sure if Kangaroon Jack is Australian or Filipino owned, but the theme of the resto is obviously of the former; the boomerangs and the kangaroo most commonly seen in the Land Down Under are on display in this resto.
KJ's specialty is steak and food served on sizzling plates. I am fan of sizzling food, just because they are fun to eat.

Bangus Pobre (PHP150) was served on a sizzling plate. the fish is breaded and the bangus is not boneless so eating it was a bit of a challenge.
Beef Morcon (PHP180) was tasty, a bit sour but at least the beef was tender enough.

I am a fan of dory fish, and I mean the edible fish not the Finding Nemo character, which by the way, is a blue tang. Dory is one of those fish that is easy to eat. I love that it is dainty, goes well with butter and lemon, and doesn't require you to spend a great amount of time trying to pick those fish bones. So when I saw that they have Cream Dory (PHP140) on the menu, I didn't think twice and ordered it right away.

Unfortunately, I didn't find the dish satisfying because it was too damn oily and salty. The only thing that helped me get through it at all is that piece of corn on the side. It served as a pantanggal umay, in Filipino it means any food that you take in between, just to wash down the unpleasant taste of whatever it is that you are eating.

The Sirloin Steak (PHP185), I didn't get to eat much of it because my loaded tummy could take no more.

As you may have noticed, every dish comes with a piece of corn, some veggies, and yellow-colored rice. The rice, by the way, is a generous serving, a big yay for the rice lovers.

Kangaroo Jack has other branches in Araneta Center Cubao, Robinson's Place Manila, and SM City North Edsa. I think I need to come back and next time I'll make sure I'll go with an empty stomach.

Twas my first time to eat at Kangaroo Jack so I was a bit excited to try their meals, I love western cuisine but have never tried Australian dishes that moment. I love the foods I saw listed in their menu! However, I cannot figure out what makes it an Australian restaurant (was it the Kangaroo?), meaning to say they have no special Australian aunthentic dishes, those were generally westerns. But then the service is worth acknowledging for it did not take our orders to be served for a long time, it was pretty quick! I liked the meal I had which was pork belly though I must say the sauce was too much (too juicy; too tasty) and the orange juice we ordered was very concentrated. So over all, it was just fair enough! Had better, had worse.

The calamares was good. But for the Chicken Teriyaki, it was overcooked, though they did change it. My sister ordered the 99ers (Fried Chicken and Pork Belly) and it was okay.

Anyone who wants a great merienda buffet?well read my review.last August 2012 my cousin celebrated her 18th bday at kangaroo jack at SM CITY MANILA.We arranged her bday party.We occupied their function room to make it private.It was my first time there.Well this is one of the sulit buffet for merienda.Its available from 2-5:30pm for almost 200pesos I think only.The promo includes soup which is the cream of mushroom and it is really yummy then nacho jacko which taste good too,rice and a choice of plain,java or adobo but java was the best for me,two pasta,choice if carbonara and pesto,I like the carbonara,two pizza flavor and it is thin crust and was taste good too,they have macaroni salad which I like too,banana fritters for dessert which is now my favorite and dip it in chocolate.Reminds me of turon split of mang inasal yummy!They have fried chicken that taste good and drinks,Red ice tea.It is really affordable.kangaroo jack is one of the best merienda buffet I have experienced and sulit talaga;-)))thumbs up!
