Ocean Seafood at Downtown East

As Edward is now serving his National Service in the Singapore Armed Forces, he makes weekly trips home from his BMTC Camp in Pulau Tekong...the Singapore civilian base being White Sands in Pasir Ris.

I sent him to his Book-in on Sunday, and the whole Pasir Ris Central was swarmed with National Servicemen. Couldn't find a place to park, we drove over to Downtown East. Many of the places were full, but I spied one less crowded queue when we arrived at 7:15pm. Halal seafood place.
Edward started with a fried rice, and had a craving for seafood...apparently they don't serve seafood in BMTC.

Baby squid, deep fried to a crisp. Not the best I have eaten, but quite acceptable. The squid was very nicely crispy, fragrant.
We also had some kangkong belachan

This is one of the better kangkongs I have eaten. The vegetable was very fresh and tender...cooked just right. The sambal could have a bit more punch, but was nice and fragrant.
And we had some sambal stingray

Again, the sambal lacked a bit of potency, but the stingray was quite fresh. Fat, sweet meat. Beautifully barbecued...a nice thin crisp, ever so slightly burnt skin, moist, tender meat within.
Overall, very nice...though I would expect the sambal to have a bit more kick...but the food was rather good.
