Seafood stalls/restaurants in Singapore = crowd magnets. Some with significantly stronger magnetic waves than others. It is common sight to see groups crowding the larger tables (or filling up the whole establishment) and ordering a sumptuous feast enough to feed the continent of Africa (or in some cases, appease the hunger or photo needs of any single ).
So when I first walked past "The Meeting Place" after having read a review about it some time ago when searching around Clementi...I was surprised to see the tables in front of it...empty on a weekend (then again, the little food centre is a ghost town).
I walked straight up to the stall and was greeted by an uncle who stopped his conversation with another uncle to ask if I was interested in anything. I guess I am interested...no line...great previous review...and a seriously hungry skinny glutton. Perfect combination.
BBQ Sotong $10 - great sambal flavor, fresh squid, cooked just right
Kang Kong $4 - flavorful, once again cooked perfectly
Cockles $3 - asked for well-done
2 plain rice $1 - rice was exactly the way I'd make it (slightly dry for a firmer texture)...after the first bite, i asked for another one
ROUND #2 (loved it, came back the next day):
BBQ Stingray $10 - luscious succulent awesomeness
Pak Choi $4 - omgosh, I'm in love with this dish. My favorite style of cooking this particular
vegetable to date.
2 plain rice $1
The portions are TINY (especially with vegetables) but the flavors and food quality definitely make up for it. The people working there are also very friendly. I would definitely eat here whenever I'm in the area.
