Not the Night Safari Buffet

Try the Indian food. Curry or tandoori. Rice or nan bread. For the kids maybe the chicken rice. Maybe let them have ice cream. Prices are reasonable and affordable in comparison with some western overseas destinations. If you have read my food and travel blog you can see I prefer hawker style Indian food in Singapore as it is hard to come by else where. For overseas visitors don't mix this restaurant up with the Night safari Buffet. See my blog on http://fitfunfoodfly.blogspot.com/2014/01/singapore-night-safari-buffet-not-ah.html

So, its lunch time at the zoo. After looking through the various options (ie: one), we decided to have lunch at Ah Meng Restaurant.

I started with the siew mai, or pork dumplings, which was quite a nice treat. This was followed by the chicken rice set ($8.32) and also tried the Chicken Curry Briyani Rice ($8.32)

The food was average at best. The Briyani also lacked kick, but it may be because it is tailored for foreigner's taste buds.

Beware of the lunch crowds, not because of the top quality food, but more because there are not any other air conditioned options around. Not the best local food I have tried, but it will just have to be if you are at the zoo.

$8.90 chicken rice - http://phuachiuyen.wordpress.com/2012/07/02/singapore-zoo/

A very common typical Singaporean lunch would be chicken rice. Who never eat chicken rice before right? The roasted chicken is surprisingly soft and tasty, especially the fragrant skin! The rice is normal and the vegetables are a little salty. Overall, I found it better than those chicken rice from the coffee shops. Worth the try if you're having a day trip at the zoo.

Well zoo's a tourist attraction so I guess it's understandable that the food prices are slightly on the high side.

Just queue to buy your food and bring it to the counter to pay.
