Recommended by Gary, this is a recently opened branch; the original outlet at Peninsula Plaza is already an established joint frequented by Myanmar nationals living in Singapore.

I’m gonna be brutally harsh and declare that I’m never coming back to this place. Ditto the hubby who has even more brutal things to say, but this is a family-friendly blog so let’s just leave it as that. Actually, we enjoyed the food. The fish curry gravy was a delightful blend of spicy, sweet, [...]
Tonight’s dinner was a rambunctious gathering of Ricky’s pals and their families. Total: 12 adults and 7 kids. Naturally the venue was a family-friendly restaurant, Globetrotters.
