We went to Sinhuat last week (Saturday night). We thought this place would be full house, since it's sat night & is quite well known after Anthony Bourdain's visit. But fortunately, not bad. We got the table easily.
Chef personally took order. We didn't see the menu. We just had to choose the main ingredient. Crab, fish, shrimp, snail, vegetables, or frog (Apparently, they only cooked main ingredient in one style. Eg: For crab, only served crab beehon, not available chili crab, etc).
We ordered 3 dishes. First dish came after about 30 mins waiting. We had scallops with black sauce (black bean?) & lots garlic. Love it !! Scallops were fresh & yummy...
Second dish was not came quickly. We waited for another 20 mins after first dish was finished. We had snails (singaporean called it gong gong) served with chili & garlic sauce. Love it more !! We could tell that snails were fresh & not fishy at all. Plus the sauce made it one impressed dish.
Third dish, we had crab beehon. Another longgg wait. This time we waited for 30 mins after finished the 2nd dish ! (Oh my...). After long smoking break, food still hadn't come yet. Why they keep their guests waiting like this, as the place was not too full (about 5 tables occupied).
Finally, the great crab beehon came. It's not disappointed at all. Crab was (again) fresh & the taste was WOW !! Even the beehon itself (which usually came rather), was tasted delicious together with the crab. Awesome food !!
We still remember the greatness of the food. But also remember the killing long wait. Maybe you can ask the chef to make your dish come together to avoid the killing wait. One more thing, price was not cheap.
