SPRMKT, McCallum Street

This place (2 McCallum Street, tel : +65 6221 2105) just adjacent to Amoy Food Centre was unexpectedly very different from what I had in mind from the time I had known about this place to the point I thought I knew what was what on the menu to the time when the food was served and the moment when I started eating.

For one, they did a very nicely tender fish and chips with a thin squid ink batter.  I could have sworn that there was an aroma of the squid ink when they were served (and interestingly a hint of curry as well) but as I ate, I realised that it tasted nothing like how I thought it would have. No squid ink nor curry flavor. Still a very decent fish and chips and interestingly so like a lump of coal.


Their delicious smoked tomato soup was both sweet and tangy and worked great with those little chunks of chewy and milky mozzarella cheese swimming in the midst. Oxtail stew was generously portioned, tasted homely and fairly packed with collagen, tasty fat off the tail meat and chunky root vegetables. I wished I worked nearby.
