I don't make any decisions in Singapore, I am sloth-boyfriend, waiting for direction from Pingles on where to go, what to think, what to do, when to do it. This approach never fails me, especially today. Her cousin recommended this place for crab bee hoon, which is crab with rice vermicelli. You just gotta fight the crab for the bee hoon...
But first, the warm-up: something I never, ever would have expected to like in a million years. Just goes to show - first try, then make up your mind. This is fried fish skin. Sounds decidedly unappetizing, I know. It's really, really good - like pork rinds. Crackling, salty and light. I think I hate half the basket myself.
Another unappetizing looking dish: tofu and mushroom with broccolli. If I'd trusted my eyes only, I would've been wrong again. This was light and fresh, the tofu was homemade.
Next to last, clams in a garlic sauce. I am not a clam fan and I enjoyed these. Everything was super-fresh - I think that was the key. As far as the crab bee hoon, the bee hoon was loaded up with crab roe, so if you're into that kind of thing then you'd like this very much. I am in the "into it" camp myself, so I had a good night.
