Slurp!

Every now and then, the Boyd family heads out for dinner. We’re always on the lookout for good food and when we do find a place worth mentioning about, we’ll spread the word.

Last night, my folks treated us to an awesome dinner at Big Eater. Slightly less than a year ago, I blogged about a seafood stall located at Punggol Plaza. If you can recall, I was raving about their pepper crab. Well, they’re so damn good that they are expanding!! Big Eater is their 9th outlet thus far and it sure looks promising.

Unlike their other outlets which are housed in food courts and coffeeshops, Big Eater is a proper restaurant. When we arrived, it was full house. The only downside of Big Eater’s location is the parking. Imagine Serangoon Gardens without a carpark…That’s where the valet service comes in. It’s useful to note that the valet service is free. Singaporeans love to hear the word FREE! Anything that’s FREE is gooood!



The restaurant is decorated with crab shells that have been signed and personalized by customers since they opened 4 months ago. This family of 5 had a really good and enjoyable meal. It’s the kinda meal that would get you coming back for more! Here’s what we had…

Sambal Kangkong
Cripsy Roll
Deep Fried Squid
Steamed Dory fish with Garlic and Chilli
Live Prawns cooked with cereal
Hot Plate Deer Meat
Black Pepper Crab (really good stuff)
Salted Egg Baked Crab

Throw in 3 bottles of Tiger Beer, 2 home made barleys, 2 lime fused drinks, 1 chinese tea, 5 bowls of rice and excellent service, the bill came up to $170.00. That’s pretty darn decent!

If you plan on checking them out, Big Eater Seafood Restaurant is located at Upper Changi Road (No. 34 Jalan Pari Burong to be precise). For reservations, call 62457268.

Singapore, like Malaysia, is home to an array of dishes that reflect our culture. Here’s 10 of my favorite dishes found in Singapore…

10. Satay
9. Mutton Murtabak
8. Hokkien Prawn Mee
7. Mee Goreng
6. Chicken Biryani
5. Mee Rebus
4. Fried Kway Teow
3. Bak Kut Teh
2. Penang Prawn Noodles
My number 1…….Fried Oyster (Orluak)

All these dishes have got me drooling! I’m gonna grab lunch at the nearby hawker. Enjoy your Monday and don’t work too hard. Peace!
