If you want to know what makes a barbecue special in Singapore, head to BBQ Specialist and fire up the charcoal under a range of products such as fish, seafood, sea shell, beef, pork, mutton, chicken, mushroom, sausages, yong tao fu, green food, utensil and kits, and assorted drinks. Basically, if it can be barbecued, BBQ Specialist on Serangoon’s Rangoon Road, not far from Farrer Park station, is the guy in the apron with the tongs you’ll want to embrace.
As it is a weekday therefore we don't expect huge crowd. The place is serene but it is not very convenient if we are driving as there are limited parallel parking space. However, it is just a 4 minutes walk from Farrer Park MRT.
I love their food and I also love their drinks.
BBQ Specialist encourages diners who arrive at its Rangoon Road premises to make their own cooking. This is hot hotpot territory and we all know how Singaporeans like to fire up a hot pot plopped atop their tabletop and get the broth boiling and meat and green food going shabu shabu. Try the pomfret or seafood mee hoon soup in Serangoon at the one and only BBQ Specialist, or go for a range of porridges like the seafood porridge, pre-cooked porridge so you don’t have to, pomfret or mackerel porridge, all served in a clay pot.
BBQ Specialist’s menus offer you useful information about the recommended cooking times for each type of porridge, and every variation is available for a fixed price per person. Eat yourself silly, Serangoon locals and Singapore residents from Farrer Park and far and wide away! After the porridge comes pudding, with soya puddings ranging in heft from a mere 80g (with the option to top up with mango delight) up to a whopping 260g. Watch out, this is an all you can eat restaurant that can turn the tables on you in an instant!
