No Signboard Seafood

Last night a Singaporean business associate took us to dinner at No Signboard Seafood on Mattar Road in Geylang. We had sashimi, baby kailan, lobster soup, crispy cereal crayfish, black-pepper crab, chili-crab, and fried rice. It was a feast! I've never tasted anything like the crayfish. They were huge; sort of a cross between a prawn and a lobster. The meat was tender and sweet and perfectly complemented by the slightly sweet cereal coating. Yummmmm! I think that there would have been more than enough food to feed three more people. The food was abundant and delicious, the service excellent. We would definitely go back for another meal -- maybe to try the white-pepper crab.

After we ate, we went for a drive around Geylang as we'd never been there before. I spotted a few of the hotels I'd read about in the paper here (they have hourly rates for "entertainment"). Since it was raining, there were just a few working girls on the street, and all of them were young and beautiful. It seems that Geylang is a world away from the glitz of Orchard Road.
