By the Fire, Alibabar Hawker Bar, Katong

Met Stef for a nice cozy meal after work at Alibabar Hawker Bar and ordered from By the Fire. Alibabar is a no-frills, simple, dining place, similar to a coffee shop concept. There are a few stores inside and you place your order with the store you want before finding a seat. It was a nice cool night so we sat outside and decided to order from By The Fire. This joint is set up by the same people behind Immanuel French Kitchen which was really awesome when I tried it so I just had to come around to try By the Fire after Stef recommended it.

I had a great time chatting about work and life, travel plans, random gossip and stories over delicious food at By the Fire and moscato at Wine Connection with Stef. Thanks for another good recommendation!

Scotch Egg. THIS WAS HEAVENLY. Runny egg yolk hidden in a layer of crispy batter. Was really good!

Seaweed Pasta. Al dente and yummy with bits of shrimps and seaweed inside. Not much substantial ingredients if you are looking for some but the pasta was good nonetheless. I felt a little thirsty after having the pasta though. 

Pork Cheek with Potato Salad! Extremely well-grilled on the outside (so crispy!) yet so soft and tender within. No stringy bits, no tough bits and no frozen porky taste. This was so good!

I took a bus to Katong and walked down to Alibabar Hawker Bar. It is directly opposite i12 Katong Mall at the junction facing Awfully Chocolate. It is hard to miss! If you are afraid of the humidity and heat which make the nights of Singapore unbearable sometimes, choose a table outside under the fan.
