My folks touched down at The World’s Best Airport – Changi Airport, returning from their week-long vacation in Europe. They cited that they’ve been craving Asian/ Chinese food; beginning the day they touched down in London (in which we’ve successfully claimed 150% off the difference, on published rates for airfares).

It was drizzling, instinctively, something hot & with a little spice factor. I searched my travel app, and decided on BBQ Box 串烧工坊. Approximately 20min drive from the airport, found a sweet spot to park at the open car-park along Tan Quee Lan Street, in front of BBQ Box.

I ordered the Special Seafood Combo 海鲜大咖 , as it would take some time for the kitchen to prepare. And while waiting, we ticked off the order checklist for some cold dishes and a variety for grilled skewered delicacies.

The skewered grilled delicacies were served in order of; whichever was cooked & ready for consumption, and successively they came. Grilled skewers are what the brand stands for, served on the candlelit box to keep warm.

P.s: There’s a LARGE version on the menu, and I won’t speculate what it looks like.

On the following weekend, after wrapping up our training event at the packed National Indoor Stadium (just one week prior to our National Heroes flying our National Flag high), I had the privilege of introducing friends from the Land-of-Smile, to some hearty supper, at the Geylang Branch.

Ordered ourselves 2 pitchers of the house beverage – Plum Juice, to cool things off.
