"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Sunset Grill and Pub (Seletar)

The four of us reached Picadilly a little after 8 pm. We followed our Google maps and found ourselves facing the main gate of Seletar Camp. The place is still a little further in but we’re stucked outside!! We took a few turns around the place, and my youngest brother suddenly noted a small short sign hammered into the soil writing “SUNSET” with an arrow direction. Under the dim street lights and drizzling rain, we drove around slowly looking out for more signs.

So here’s telling you foodies, at the junction facing the main gate to Seletar Camp, take the left turn and follow the windy road. Look out for more similar directional signs saying “SUNSET”.

Upon reaching Singapore Youth Flying Club, the bar is on the left hand side. That is the only food place. Park your car and get off for some flaming buffalo wings!

It was quite a lovely place. You can smell the strong scent mosquito coils just before stepping into the restaurant, as if the mosquitoes there were humongous. There were the al fresco and air-conditioned areas. We were lucky to sit in the air-conditioned area. Otherwise I would anticipate lots of mosquito bites.

There wasn’t much to choose from in the menu. And the food was a little on the pricey side. So here’s what we ordered:

Caesars Salad - $13.50

Deep Fried Button Mushrooms - $14.50

These mushrooms are big and juicy. Never eaten such big button mushrooms before! They are really nice!

fish and chips - $15.50

The fish was so-so. Can’t really taste the fish. The fries were soggy. Coleslaw was not bad. A pass-able food in a school canteen.

BBQ half-chicken - $19.80

Similarly, the fries were soggy. The chicken was sweet. The meat was very soft and not dry. A pass-able food in a school canteen.

Level 5 Buffalo Wings - $32.50

We ordered a full dozen of an overly-ambitious Level 5 hotness of buffalo wings. My brother ordered a $3 chilled milk to prepare for this spiciness. As all of us took our first bites, we were all not prepared for this – fragrant buffalo sauce on ULTRA hot wings. My youngest brother took the first bite and went numb in his mouth. My younger brother was crying for his milk, and I was also gulping down the iced-water like my youngest brother. Only my cousin was saying the level of hotness was acceptable, and she wanted to try Level 10!! OMG. Frankly speaking, we are all chilli lovers. We eat chilli padi, sambal belacan, etc. And the Level 5 hotness was really almost the maximum we could withstand.

After the first wing, we “rested” by eating the fish and bbq chicken. Then we took the second attempt on the second piece. We all agreed that it wasn’t as hot as the first. Probably our mouths were already numb. My cousin was saying my face was even redder than when I drink alcoholics. Yes, I felt a bit high after finishing 4 wings. Both my brothers were super full, not because of the food, but because they drank too much water.

Really love these wings. Really really delicious. Never eaten such nice buffalo wings before. The next time, I would probably order Level 3 only. Why torture myself? HAHA!

“The degree of spiciness for Buffalo wings ranges from Level 1 to 35. Anyone who finishes at least one wing of Level 30 or 35 spiciness will have his name on its wall of fame and receive a certificate.

Price: From $17.50 for six wings and $28.50 for twelve wings at Level 1 spiciness, to $32.50 for six wings and $55 for twelve wings at level 35.”

Adapted from The Straits Times. Lifestyle section, 14th February 2010.

All prices include 7% GST. No service charges. Free flow of iced-water. Our total bill of 4 came up to $114.30.

The service was good. Our cups were never left empty, and there was top-up of serviettes before they were finished. ^^

BEWARE of flaming stomachs later and multiple toilet visits the next day.

    The place is confirmed closed (Date of visit : 22 April 2012, 4pm).

    Even the building is gone. Only the short row of offices one has to pass while walking from the car park to the restaurant are still there.

    And oh yes, the big tree standing by the stream/drain.

    Even the nearby hangars and office buildings are being torn down.

    I have been to lesser eateries and never been treated thus. I would never go there again! Bad customer relations from the ang mo boss. I think his name is Jerry or something. Had unsatisfactory experience from just asking him about the pricing on the menu. He gave a cynical look muttered something as if telling me to go elsewhere if I could not afford it. Its was so embarassing for me and my guests that we walked off.
