Charco's moving!

Okay, this blog entry kinda' jumped the queue because I had this meal only a few days back. BUT.. because I'm a fan of their food, I feel obliged to pass the message that they'll soon be moving out of their current premise at Blk 89 Marine Parade Central (multi-storey carpark) on 27th March.

Come 30th March, they will be serving their famous ribs at Blk 80, Marine Parade Central (near the Polyclinic).

I saw a notice at the counter when I was making the order. Didn't really verify it with their staff so pardon me if I made a mistake somewhere.

Anyway, when we came by for lunch that Tue afternoon, we were their ONLY customers there. Was taken aback. Maybe lunch was over? But it was 1+pm only! I believe the issue lies with its poor location, maybe that's why they are moving somewhere closer to the main road, with higher volume of human traffic? Or maybe it's the rental issue.

Well, I don't really know. All I want is for them to continue operating as I don't know where else I can get such tentalising Halal ribs, served with many varieties of salads.

And with that, I end the entry with pictures of my meal that day.

Rack of Lamb

My order almost everytime I'm here. The one time I ordered the Chicken Schitzel, I wish I had ordered these tender, fall-off-the-bone lamb ribs instead.

I'll only attempt to use the fork & knife for the 1st piece of ribs. By the 2nd piece, I'll sub-consciously pick it up with my fingers and relish every inch of it, down to licking the bone.

Not exactly a nice sight, I know.

3 Salads

(From top) Tuna salad, Greek salad & Caesar salad.

I always order the set where there's 1 main + 3 salads. Caesar is the one that I'll never miss ordering. Another favourite is the Chicken Avocado that has farfalle pasta.

That day, I felt a little guilty for eating the lamb so I tried to balance it with the much healthier Greek salad. Besides, its tangy vinaigrette might help clear out some of that greasy, lamb taste.


... Come to think of it, I will miss their current location, where the outdoor dining area had us dining with a view of the nice green surroundings and the hum of fast-moving vehicles on the ECP nearby...
