LDM Charcoal BBQ Restaurant, Geylang
The name here may sound rather industrial, but it is an abbreviation of its pinyin name, Liu Da Ma Wu Yan Yang Rou Chuan. Located across from Lorong 15 at 260 Geylang Road (6747-4744), this was basically a Chinese skewer shop, but with charcoal grills in the center of the metal tables, thus providing a DIY option with a full complement of spice powders at one's disposal.
It took me a while to figure out at first: I either overcooked them or made them too salty (I sure am thirsty right now), and I kept fumbling with those long flat metal skewers. I eventually got the hang of it and still ate the meat with ease, but next time I think I'll have them cook them for me.
As much as I like Xiao Ping's skewered meat, I want to give this place another go, especially given the sheer selection of items available here, including cold platters like these spicy strips of tofu in the foreground of the photo. There isn't any shortage of skewer shops in the area though - in fact, I originally thought that this was the one mentioned in a comment at this post until I noticed another shop down the road afterwards that was more likely it. A shootout of Geylang's skewer shops is definitely in order soon.
