CH gave YK a birthday treat at Sunset Grill last night. Even though it is tucked away deep inside Seletar Airbase, the rustic eating place was filled with people yesterday. We've been there several times, thinking that it won't be long before it disappears from the surface of this earth.
Well, you see, Sunset Grill is sitting on precious space that is slated for redevelopment into an aerospace hub. Everything that's old and 'kampong' would have to be demolished and replaced by shiny new buildings. It's happening everywhere in Singapore. The Canadian owner Jerry has said that he would operate till end 2008, so everyone's there for a last bite in the rustic ambience.
We got lucky last night because we managed to see a couple of private planes taking off before our eyes as we tucked into their famous buffalo wings which come in 10 levels of hotness. How hot was ours? See below.
We drove across the island to Vivovity after dinner which was still packed with shoppers at almost 9pm. Now I know where everyone flocks to at night when I'm preparing to go to bed. Gee, I'm really missing out! We shopped for a bit and ate ice cream at Ben & Jerry's before calling it a night.
Reading about Brainac Nights gave CH a clue to what YK likes. He got him this present.
YK has a soft spot for clam chowder soup. The one served here is really nice, with chunks of clams in the flavourful soup.
Another signature dish - fresh button mushroom deepfried in beer batter. It never fails to please.
Buffalo wings - only level 2 but already hot enough to scorch the tongue.
CH had striploin steak. He hardly orders steak, especially served rare. He must be feeling anemic yesterday.
I ordered the pork ribs which nobody wanted to share with me. Too much meat in one night.
