bad food alert!  
tsk tsk.

in that bustling street known as the Food Street, in chinatown - smith street to be exact... there is a stall known as boon tat street seafood. yes, they are not in boon tat street, but mayhaps they originated from there or something.

no matter.

they suck!

it is not often that barbecued seafood dishes can go wrong, so long as good ingredients are used. i believe this is the first stall i've eaten at where i could openly proclaim that "this is really terrible".

vegetables were OLD. not of consumable texture. super tough and slightly bitter. copious amounts of garlic was used to try to mask the shortcomings of this sorry bunch, but failed. miserably.

squid was average. in fact, i could tell that it wasn't very fresh... just slightly on the soggy side. but forgiven because it seemed pretty good with the not-too-bad tasting sambal sauce, when compared to the vegetables and the stingray.

oh yes, the stingray was horrible. soggy flesh, typical of stale fish.

bad. very bad. avoid at all cost.

my mom always warns me against going to Smith St. to eat. She says that it's dirty and the food there is not fresh. Well, I guess you knew that part didn't you? Hehehe.

my mom never warned me!

(but she doesn't eat out much)

yes, i've learnt it the hard way... :P though i've eaten there before, can't remember what it was i ate but it was ok i think? it might have been wanton noodles... (i've always thought wanton noodles was a really funny name).
