"Exotic" is all a matter of context. In this case, American chef Andrew Balus has transplanted a classic Southern barbecue restaurant into the middle of the Little India district of Singapore. For American visitors who want a taste of home, it is comfort food, but for Singaporeans and tourists from other countries, it must seem very exotic, indeed. From the country (Southern rural, that is) décor to the menu selections, Meat Smith offers a true taste of American barbecue. The starters alone are worth it, including pork crackling, buffalo chicken wings and even nachos. Entrees range the various styles of 'cue, from North Carolina brisket and Memphis spare ribs to Alabama chicken. They even offer a smoked pig platter (or, with 48 hours' notice, a whole suckling pig). Beers include Miller draft and a good range of bottled beers, plus mixed drinks, bourbon and rye.
