|Shashlik's interior. That's our empty table.|
But with the restaurant's impending closure, I had run out of time. My kind cousin kindly took me there for my birthday treat, so I trotted down to Far East Shopping Centre (on a day which recorded one of the highest PSI readings of the year) to sample the food. Indeed, despite the hazy conditions, many people had the same idea because there was a queue! The restaurant was packed and we were told that we may need to wait for our food. Typical Singaporeans - nothing can keep us from our makan.

Hmm.... I wonder if there is time to squeeze in another visit before the closure (braving the queues?). But then, Shashlik's owners say that they are prepared to sell the business, recipes and all, to interested parties. So is there the chance that the restaurant will stay after all ....
