After our little drumming stint at MASKA, we sped off to meet our friends at Jalan Kayu to have dinner at the Sunset Grill & Pub. This little gem is nestled deep inside the super secluded Seletar Camp area. It’s an ulu, middle of no where place where the darker you drive into the darkness, the more on track you are. Of course we got a little lost finding the place at first! And once you reach the Singapore Flying Club with small plane parked on either side of you, you’ve reached the place.
The whole place had an old school out of Singapore vibe about it. We settle in quickly and took some group shots before ordering our food and beer.
We were there on a Saturday night so the place was pretty crowded. I was amazed that there were so many people willing to come so far for dinner. It’s one place you can’t get to without a car.
Having good company and a whole lot of patience is essential in this place cause while the food was not bad, the service took forever! Best not to come hungry or when in a hurry. Maybe it won’t be that bad on the weekdays but that night, it could take about an hour for food to be served! Which is a huge deterrent for me to go back there even though I like the place. And do make all your orders at one go if you decide to try this place out cause a 2nd order later on might take another hour to deliver.
I had my grilled fish was was pretty good. But the main reason we came here was to try out their infamous super hot buffalo wings! The hotness or spiciness came in different levels. On the menu, you can find level 1 to 10. But few people know that there is a secret level 30 which is not stated in the menu.
We ordered level 5 wings to see how hot it possibly was. I manage to finish my wing but my mouth was already burning so when my group suggested conquering the Level 30 wings I decided to sit out and play camera/video person instead. Call me a coward but the horror stories I heard from those who had tried level 30 wings before scared me!
After everyone’s tummy was lined with food, the level 30 wings came. I had one taste of the sauce and stood by my decision to stay out of this dare devil competition! Besides the initial spiciness, the worst thing about having these is that after the taste in your month dies off and you feel good again, the worst is yet to come! The huge amount of chilli in your system will manifest it’s symptoms for the next few days, you will have tummy runs, sore throat, flu, fever and even hives! I already have a sensitive tummy and skin so I doubt my body could handle it well.
But my group was roaring and ready to prove that fear is not a factor for them. So while some went in armed with just water, others were armed with milk, ice or even a huge packet of sugar! Each hoping their remedies will help ease the after effects of the chilli. The common strategy here is to cut up all the chicken to bite size pieces first then shove it in your mouth without touching your lips so your lips won’t swell.
Turn by turn they went and they all finished up their share of the wings! The tears came streaming down for some and eyes and lips swell but they conquered it all!
Here’s the list of winners. Those names with a – in them meant that the Wing was shared by 2 people.
Each of them had a certificate given to them by Sunset Gill and Pub and their names will be listed up in the restaurant’s board of level 30 wings achievers!
Lots of group shots were taken of the winners! Lol…
And we also took some shots of the girls in that table…
The night was not over yet but my post has to end here… will be back for more of that night soon. Meanwhile, here’s a video specially for the challengers.
