My friend was craving for ribs and wanted to go to a cheap place to eat and suggested Charco's at Marine Parade. We ordered the Lamb Ribs with 3 kinds of salad and a half Charco's Chicken with creamed potatoes and peas. It was in a air-conditioned hawker setting with outdoor seating and since it was at night and the inside was pretty stuffy, we sat outside. The food was pretty quick to arrive and it was warm as well. The ribs might have cooled down very fast as we sat near the fan.. But we couldn't complain. We had Lamb Ribs with Potato Salad, Seafood Salad and Caesar Salad. The seafood salad used to be better and we were only given chunks of crabmeat although we saw prawns amongst the crabmeat in the display, none were given to us.. The meat on the ribs were easy to fall off, although the bone was bigger than the amount of meat covering it. The half chicken came with creamed potatoes and peas. I must say, I LOVE the creamed potatoes. As the name suggests, the sauce is creamy with cheese and it was smooth. Nothing matches best with the thick slices of potatoes. The chicken was tender with its juicy goodness still inside the meat.. The skin was nice and crisp. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a cheap quick fix of roasted chicken and ribs rather than spending a bomb at a restaurant.
