This place on Geylang Road (at Lorong 35, 6744-9755) is celebrated by local critics as well as even Mr. Anthony Bourdain himself (his episode on Singapore featured this place), so I had to come try it. The signature dish invented here is the crab bee hoon (not cheap at S$45 or US$27 for a normal-sized crab), so that's the only thing we ordered.
It wasn't bad by any means. In fact, it was pretty darned good, especially given all the greasy garlicky seafood taste mixed in with the bee hoon noodles. But it was a bit overrated. I still don't appreciate the thick-shelled Sri Lankan crabs commonly used across the island (boy, do I miss the Swan Oyster Depot in SF). Don't get me wrong - the place is good, and certainly pretty unique to Singapore, but I doubt I'll get cravings for this place. (Besides, the service is too slow here.)
