So there's 18/23 or sth and 20/25

The 20/25 are the thicker cuts, which I obviously would go for.

The sambal was fiery, it's got good heat and good sweetness, medium spiciness though.

Stingray was well grilled, it's crispy at the bottom, but the meat itself wasn't good, so it requires a lot of chewing.

I'd say just go for the sambal sotong? if u want to try the sambal, hopefully that's better

With all food reviews, one has to decide, quality or value first. This review was tricky in that sense. Although the fish was ordinary, it was slightly larger than usual, while the sambal was fantastic. However, this smallest size was $18.

One of those stores that has a perennial queue at Alexandra Village! They serve a whole array of seafood, but my favourite is the sambal stingray. It packs a real punch and there’s a lot of meat! The prawn paste chicken was also surprisingly good. Rounded it off with a simple vegetable dish and my group of 4 paid $40!

This sambal stingray really taste good.

The sambal was overflowing and the stingray was fresh too.

But its damn expensive here, I am so used to having my sambal stingray at $10-$12.

Indecision lies in everyone, a phenomenon that can result in wasted minutes, aching muscles and overall mental stress. Of the many techniques that I have employed in deciding and planning the places @thintbites would end up in the coming week, my second favourite shortcut method would be to simply go for something that reflects my earliest memories of food in Singapore. In this case, sambal stingray.
Being one of the first spicy foods that I managed to successfully chow down in Singapore, the memory of the searing spice, the tangy lime, the barbecued char and the juicy stingray meat imparted a certain wisdom in me about the food culture in Singapore that I still carry to this day. Nothing can replicate the multi-sensory experience you can get from a table full of dishes served fresh and piping hot from the kitchen.
My favourite spot for sambal stingray will still remain a personal secret (for now), but if I were to confidently declare a stall as one of the best seafood BBQ hawkers in Singapore with a sambal stingray to die for, that place would be Star Yong Kwang BBQ Seafood. Located along the edges of Alexandra Food Village, the stall spends its 7-hour evenings serving up some of Singapore’s favourite dishes. Of course, there is no doubt that their Sambal Stingray ($22) is the star (no pun intended) of the show. With the meat being as juicy and tender as it should be, the combination of their homemade sambal and lime was simply superb, complimenting the white ray meat with every bite.
Another one of my favourite dishes to have alongside a fragrant bowl of rice is their Sambal Sotong ($16/28), with their signature sambal coating every morsel of the cephalopod and slivers of onion to bring it all together.

Every dish was great in its own way. The chicken was perfectly crispy and had a strong prawn paste flavour. The stingray was a tad overdone but had enough spice from the sambal. The pork ribs were nice and tender and paired well with the creamy sauce. Everything went well with rice!
