Now I realize that most of my posts on food review are the restaurants in Straits Quay. The Charlie Brown Cafe post had burst my blog traffic in just 3 hours today! YES, IN JUST 3 HOURS.
In the strips when Snoopy created some disaster and when the others yelled at him, he would always ask, "Why me??"
"Because, HE'S YOUR DOG CHARLIE BROWN!!!"
Now I love your dog Charlie Brown. =)
Now another post which is also related to Straits Quay - Ding Charcoal BBQ and steamboat buffet.
The restaurant is located at the same floor with Charlie Brown Cafe. You can easily recognize it from afar. It's so red!!
The interior. Also as red as the exterior.
They provide 2 hobs, one for BBQ and the other one for steamboat.
Using kanban belt to transport food. Similar to Lolipot.
The utensils are more oriental style. Black utensils to create contrast to the red walls.
Now that the charcoal and soups are filled, we're ready to do the BBQ marathon. Wuahahah....
I was sitting right beside the kanban belt, so my responsibility was informing the gang when something new passed by and grab those we want as fast as possible. There are other tables right opposite ours across the conveyor so at times you just got to be fast.
The fast and furious....
My favorite. Kapa or lala (seashell type).
Then came the beef, mutton and pork. The pork slices are the belly meat （五花腩）and no doubt it's greasy but we love it. If you BBQ it with some garlic oil, you will never have enough of it. I made a lot of those. Hands were greasy so didn't snap much photo.
Then came the crab.
And the cray fish.
Throw everything in. Those shells were mine.
I was enjoying making BBQ wraps (belly meat wrapping enoki mushrooms) while the others were busy flipping meat on the BBQ net. So we were all having greasy hands and I decided to keep my DSLR and focus on eating. After all that's eat all you can, so basically you've got the idea of what they serve... poultry, seafood and vegetables, plus refillable drinks with a few choices, and eat-all-you-can ice-cream as dessert.
Thanks to the special BBQ machine used, we didn't smell like a grill meat ourselves after 2.5 hours in there. But one thing I don't really like is the seating, not so comfortable for me. It's meant for 4 pax per table (comfortable seating) but we have 6 per table so I need to squeeze to the side throughout that 2.5 hours.
