Food Review: Steam Sia at 5 Hindoo Rd, Singapore 209107January 23, 2013
Which was such a coincidence, because my friends had been talking about visiting the place for a while, and even saw a Groupon for it (but we missed it).
So of course I had to go over and find out what the name "STEAM SIA" really means.
It is definitely a very memorable and catchy name for a restaurant. The original or colloquial meaning of "Steam Sia", for the benefit of non-Singaporeans, is that of being sexually stimulated.
I really like some of the old vintage displays they have. Like that electric clock (used to have 1) and typewriter!
Next, a odd little plate of stuffed potatoes, with a seafood filling that tasted strongly of mussels. It's called the Seafood Stuffed 'Sailing Boat' ($8.90). It had a rather strange flavour even though it theoretically sounds like a good idea.
After all that seafood, it's time to draw in the fishing line, and look to the pastures for some meat.
