Buffet at an affordable price? Need I say more?
After hours of walking at SM North EDSA, me and my parents finally found a place to eat. Welcome, Kangaroo Jack!

Located at the 2nd floor of SM North EDSA, Kangaroo Jack is an Aussie-inspired restaurant offering their signature steaks, grills and sizzlers. They also offer a variety of dishes including pork, beef, chicken, seafood, etc.
Before I came here, It was another stressful Wednesday with our prelim exam and meeting for our thesis writing. I wasn’t even able to eat lunch so eating at a buffet felt like heaven!
Feels like heaven! 😛 Love the lights here, BTW
The ambiance has your usual restaurant-in-a-mall kind of vibe with a slight Southern Australia feel complete with tribal mask displays, rock tiles, 50s bar-inspired lights and hand-painted tribal wall (Ironically, printed XD)
Now for the food! We we’re able to try their P290 peso buffet (Available Mon-Fri from 1PM to 5:30PM). As we got in, the staff gladly informed us we can start our buffet. Alright! I first browsed all their food. There weren’t a lot of options but no complaints, tho, I just wanted to get my fill.
They had 3 kinds of Rice: Java, Yang chow and Plain. From there, I got to choose from 4 viands, which were mostly meat-based so sorry for vegetarians XD plus they had calamari and pancit canton.
They also had a Singaporean soup, pasta with your choice of sauce, sliders, PB&J, pizza, a drinks section, sushi bar, and a small dessert section. It’s not a lot but I don’t mind.

Free-flowing drinks! Iced tea (Left), Four Seasons (Center), Lemonade (Right)
I first raided the sushi bar. Finally, I was craving for it for months! It was alright, it’s the typical sushi you’d buy at the supermarket but satisfying enough. They served only maki throughout our stay.
For the main course, I grabbed a plate and helped myself with a variety of food with plain rice.
They were all okay except for the fried chicken which was obviously tough and dry. but their adobo, I mean “Pork Stew in Liver Sauce” XD, was good. The thin slice pizza was the best I recommend that one
Lastly for dessert, they only had turon and coffee jelly in shot glasses (Not really a jello shot). I tried the coffee jelly with whipped cream. It was tasty and the cream literally ‘topped it all off’. I finished about 3 or 4 glasses 🙂
I could eat more but I saw a small fly in one of the glasses. I suggest they put their desserts in a glass display case to prevent this.
The not-so ‘jello shot’ shot
I was already full but before we leave…
…one more! 🙂
Overall, I was able to try everything since it’s not a lot, except for the pasta, tho. Food was good enough to eat, satisfying but really not that special. No Aussie-related food but I guess it’s for their regular dishes.
I’ll definitely comeback to Kangaroo Jack to try out their steaks next time. Till then, Cheers!
