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!


Well-coated, sweet, tangy and absolutely generous with their serving. This plate of fried baby squids is my family favourite dish. The sweet and sour sauce is thin, but packs a lot of good flavour, without drowning or being overpowering. The balance is great, and very addictive!


If you asked any of us at the dinner table what we thought of the stingray, we'd just say, "ok lor".

Apparently a signature dish, the sambal stingray had quite a nice slathering of sambal on top (with decent 🌢 kick too) but the stingray itself was... meh. Not a thick cut considering the price, and not particularly flavourful.

Actually, the whole experience at this hawker zi char place was just ok. Salted egg yolk pork ribs & sambal kangkung was good but the sambal sotong was only ok and cereal prawns had zero flavour.

πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I wouldn't come back in a hurry but, it is conveniently located if you tried to get a table for 10 at one of the popular zi char restaurants nearby but forgot to make a reservation.

You know where to go when you have local food craving. Reasonable price and delicious food, especially the salty egg pork ribs which is so evil yet tasty. Even I stay in the east, will surely revisit again!
