the month’s organiser thought to vary the G15 dinner theme a bit & organised a walk/cycle/run night ending at satay by the bay at 7.30pm on 23.9.2013.
it just happened to be the day after F1 & there was some uncertainty regards road closures. 3 friends came in their lamborghinis, the 2 wheeler version. another was walking from his office at raffles place so we arranged to have coffee at cafe crema next the visitor centre at 6.30pm. in the end we were all delayed & it took me 15mins to get past the short viaduct stretch (keppel) from AYE to ECP.
satay by the bay was a food court with many stalls including satays. as we were approaching in dusk, crossing a short bridge the night view/photo was quite enchanting.
we ordered food to share. the bbq chicken wing was good. the rojak was good too & the satay included chicken, mutton, pork from the the chinese stall. there was no pineapple sauce though, and the pork wasn’t great, the mutton & chicken were ok. it brought back my memories on pork satay. now i remember the fatty ones properly charred were very good, though these days i don’t do much satay & almost always just chicken & mutton so i somewhat forgotten.
the deep-fried sotong was something i hardly eat these days. it was good though nothing special. the pengkang stingray ok too. the hor fun had good wok hae, tasty though not much ingredients. the fried rice was ok too, with wok hae & not mushy but single grains (in teochew we say “sun sun”) but again not much ingredients just carbo. 😉
fruits were good. the makan cost S$120 for 8pax, not much but also not exactly cheap for hawker food. 🙂
