Ah Meng restaurant, located in the center of Singapore Zoo. Unless you are bringing your kids to the zoo, or your overseas guests, you will probably won't see this place. First challenge to get to this place is that you have to pay the entrance fees to the zoo. So unless you have annual pass, it is highly unlikely you will choose this place to dine. Also, its only open during zoo hours he..he..
I end up here because my God son like animals. So during school holiday, I have to be a good God Pa together with God Ma bring the cute and adorable God Son to the zoo.
So how is the food? Well their Indian Cuisine section is actually quite good. For $8.90 you can get a Chicken Curry Naan Set, which consist of 1 large size of Naan, a few pieces of chicken, vegetables and yogurt. The Naan is soft and moist. It goes well with the curry.
The BBQ Chicken Leg is nothing to boast about. It is acceptable, chicken portion quite big. The meat is moist & tender and the sauce are sweet and tangy. For $3.50 a glass, their Ice Lemon Tea, its a bit of a rip off. They claim that it is home made, serve you with a glass normally use for Milo Dinosaur, but only 3/4 full. I like it as it is not to sweet and this drink will definitely freshen you up after the long walks in the zoo.
Overall, I would consider this place to be more of a Canteen rather than a restaurant. The good thing is that it has an A/C section. But you better be ready to fight for a seating place, cause competition can be quite brutal with other hungry and sweaty customers. Price wise, reasonable bordering on the high side. You don't actually have much choice when you are inside the zoo, so treat this as we are donating to Singapore beloved Orang Utan, the famous Ah Meng :)
