Hidden gem of yummy grilled seafood (ikan bakar)!

I had a wonderful bbq fish meal at this gem of a bbq fish stall that is tucked in a secluded corner at the newly upgraded hexagonal hawker centre in Tanglin Halt. The food was good enough to fill lazy me with the urge to write a review about it.

Our family of 8 was looking for dinner at the hexagonal hawker centre when we came upon this stall that has a Best 5 rating on its signboard. Decided to give it a try, we ordered bbq snapper ($15), stingray($10), prawns($12), sotong ($8), otak otak ($5) and some vegetables.

We waited for 10 to 15 minutes before the food arrived. The seafood were very fresh, the sambal chilli that was smeared on the bbq seafood was fragrant with the right amount of spices, the chilli lime cincalok (fermented shrimp) dipping sauce that was served at the side provided some kick that complemented the seafood well without marring the clean fresh taste of the seafood. All the seafood we ordered were grilled to perfection, the flesh was tender and moist, with some charred and fragrant crunchy bits. Coupled with the aroma of the charred banana leaves, it really hit the spot for us. The bbq otak otak was delicious, too. My 9 year old daughter who is a fussy eater and usually shuns spicy food liked it so much that she finished the whole plate of rice and ate most of the otak otak that we ordered, we had to order another serving. We also ordered another serving of stingray.

I was particularly impressed with the sotong, which was cooked to perfection, so juicy and tender, not rubbery at all. The shanghai greens with oyster sauce ($3 for small) was fresh and crunchy. The prices of the fish ordered depend on the type and serving size. E.g, stingray is $10/$13/$15, prawns $12/$15, sotong $8/$10/$12. Good portion size and amazingly fresh food. Highly satisfying meal. They also serve spicy lala and other types of fish which I will definitely try out next time.

I got a namecard from the stall owner. I was told they were operating at the coffee shop in Blk 40 Holland Drive. They moved to the current location due to increased rent.
