Now we all know Indian food hasn’t yet fallen victim to the “tiny plates” movement, I mean, give me a mountain of rice and drown it with curry, right? But in Saha’s case, Chef Abhijit Saha’s mixing of traditional Indian with innovative techniques is worth checking out.
Originally at Duxton Hill, Saha has moved to the National Gallery Singapore, with a larger space that will include a bar serving up craft cocktails and unique Indian bar bites in the near future.
As for the menu, yes, you will see words like espuma, soil and quenelle peppered all over but before you roll those eyes, aren’t you even a little bit curious to see how these fine dining fancy styles will match up with such a hearty, voluminous cuisine like Indian?
The ala carte menu is extensive, showcasing a wide range of regional Indian dishes but the tasting menus are where the excitement begins.
A snapshot of that is the set lunch menu which features interesting items like Chicken Kebab with saffron-cardamom soil, Masala Lamb Tacos and Masala Chai Brulee.
Again, for the purists out there – set your expectations please. I would still pick my mutton biryani at Islamic restaurant at Beach Road over the Morel Mushroom biryani here, but it is always nice to try different interpretations of dishes and enjoy different forms of creativity.
Saha offers lunch sets at either 2-course for $38++ and 3-course for $48++.
