I first ate here a few years back with a friend and I loved the wide variety and the taste of the food in spite of the then crude appearance of the place.
This time, I came back with my husband, kids and a small group of close friends and was pleasantly surprised. The place had been renovated, and very well, I must say. The food stalls are now at the periphery and the tables are in a central open-air area. It encourages socializing.
Upon entering, one is assaulted by all kinds of delicious smells. Of course we knew that it would be impossible to order everything but we certainly tried--crabs, fish, chicken, squid, oysters, pork, beef, mixed satay and shellfish. The food was not fast but was well-prepared.
There was no one trying to hurry us up. We were able to catch up uninterrupted. The only drawback to the evening really was the heat. Summer. Unfortunately, no electric fans in the open air part. But the food and the ambiance made one willing to sweat it out.
So my previous memories of great food have now been reinforced with more memories of great food AND ambiance. Newton will definitely be on our itinerary the next time we're in Singapore.
