D’grill would be the first store you see upon entering Punggol Containers.
It specialises in serving local food items on a hot plate and their menu ranges from pasta all the way to sambal seafood. Other than local food, they also bring in exclusive seafood products during different festive periods. One of their favourites is the Hokkaido Scallop. Furthermore, no pork or lard is added to their dishes.
They are very generous in their servings and the first dish we tried was the Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab Spaghetti ($18). They gave a whole soft shell crab and though it was crispy on the outside, the inside was filled with meat and even crab eggs! The spaghetti sauce also went well with the crab.
One of their speciality dish is its Whole Fish and Chips ($18). It was our first time seeing a whole fish being fried and it was nicely salted and spiced! The only downside is that it was a little to dry but you could top it up with ketchup or chilli.
For its sambal hot plate, we tried both the Grilled Hot Plate Sambal Stingray ($16) and Grilled Hot Plate Sambal Sotong ($15). The seafood was really fresh and juicy. The sambal sauce also went really well due to the correct amount of spice and seasoning. It is a good sharing platter.
To end off the meal here, you can order a bottle of beer (Blue Lion $6) or its famous Chendol Secret Garden ($6).
The overall experience at this bistro is alike to that of a Tze char store, except that it has a hotplate sambal twist to it! We would definitely recommend this place for groups or family gatherings!
