The Skewer Bar – Geylang, Singapore

Advertisements

You know most of the time we run out of choices for supper in Singapore and this is prolly a good place for such indulgence for your next supper outing. Was introduced to this little place by a friend and immediately it rekindled my years in China where you can find BBQs at every nooks and crannies in the neighbourhood.

Although they just started only like two months ago, I have since revisited them after they have renovated (expanded) but still most customers prefer to sit outside when they have a nice airconditioned room inside. On top of that, they even have crafted and draft beers now which of course is not offered by the coffee shop they are residing in.

The stall. To the left is the new wing.
The offerings. The team is working in new items soon to add on to the range.
One the partners is the main chef doing the BBQing.
A touch of passion & spice
These bacon with enoki or quails’ egg is so good!
BBQ Stingray with homemade sambal chilli. Not very spicy for me, but at least the fish is nice and fresh!
Somehow the mini Taiwanese sausages on the right is damn nice! The balls on the left are homemade chicken and pork balls. Very nice lightly grilled with teriyaki sauce.
Grilled Shitake & chicken liver
Electric stove also have fire one ok!
More orders of these damn blardy awesome pork skewers!
More orders of this homemade grandma’s recipe!
BBQ Eggplant is very nice especially with the shallots and garlic on top!

Rating: 5/5.

Taste: Love it! Especially the pork skewers and special pork & chicken balls! Not forgetting the bacon skewers!

Portion: Skewers lor.

Service: Very good especially when 4 partners are there to help out.

Ambience: The new aircon area is damn comfy lah in this blardy hot weather!

Price: Skewers starts from $1.20 to $18 (sea bass) Sea bass is really worth a try!

RTE: Soon!

華南粉面茶餐厅 @ Wan Chai, Hong Kong

A super old friend of mine from school days brought me to this place for dinner/supper after catching up in Hong Kong recently. According to him, he loves the beef brisket there and would try to patronize the place whenever he’s back in HK. Thanks to him if not I will never know of this place.

Store Outlook. Friend is posing... haha...
Looks small from outside but it can accommodate quite a lot of people inside. As it was summer, thank God it was air-conditioned!
Guy cooking all the beef parts and brisket. You can imagine how much flavour there is in the broth!
Beef Brisket with cabbage below. This bowl is about HKD$80... quite expensive if you ask me. Cos premium part of the brisket cost a lot more. But the taste is really good.
Very nice and tender...
Mixed Beef Parts Soup - Not a big fan of beef parts but they all tasted alright and tender. I'm ok with tribes but not the intestines and lungs and liver... but they contribute to the wonderful soup! 🙂
Nice cup of Ice Yuen Yang (tea mix with coffee) to cool the chilli hot mouth and wash it all down. Shiok!
My old classmate Gary Lim.
Me enjoying every bit of the brisket... the chilli is pretty spicy!

Rating: 4.5/5. Would be a perfect 5 if it’s not as pricey.

Taste: Pretty awesome I must say. The broth is really the essence of dunno how many cows!

Portion: Slightly above average servings.

Price: Bill came up to around HKD$140. Quite alright for those who believe in paying higher prices for good food. But I found another place which apparently is better than this place for much lesser price. Will review it later. 🙂

RTE: Maybe. It’s good but the other place is better to my taste.
