Ammakase: Amma delivers her love, Omakase-style!

Ammakase bills itself as the World’s first Neo-Indian Omakase Fine Dining Experience. Setting aside the mouthful of words, you had me at Ammakase, folks. I stumbled upon this most curious of monikers while searching for a new place to enjoy a birthday lunch with a dear friend. Well, first I exploded with glee. I mean, […]

Barood – Is it really a Latin-Indian izakaya?

Barood, from the same team behind acclaimed Revolver, bills itself as a Latin-Indian izakaya. Latin, Indian, Japanese? This I had to try! My friends and I decided to enjoy the latest Restaurant Week menu a couple of weekends back – a good chance to try some of their highlights at $89 per person. I must […]

Firangi Superstar Fish

Firangi Superstar: An Enchanting Evening of Fantasy.

I have been wanting to get my ass to Firangi Superstar for a while now. Not only because of the usage of the word, Superstar, which if you know, you know is the suffix to one of India’s biggest movie stars, Rajinikanth. But also, as a fan of Wes Anderson’s quirky, fantastical movie sets, I […]

Flying Monkey featured

{CLOSED} Flying Monkey – Indian-inspired cocktails and tapas

If it was not for the fact that a friend had suggested I attend a tasting session at Flying Monkey, I might have just missed out on this place altogether.

Gulab Jamun – milk balls in a rosy sugar syrup!

I’m not the biggest fan of Indian (or Asian, for that matter) desserts. I’m a chocoholic, through and through. But amongst the Indian desserts, the ones I like are Gulab Jamun, Rasmalai (cottage cheese balls soaked in thick, sweetened milk) and Kulfi (“indian ice cream”). Although it’s easy to buy Gulab Jamun off the shelf at […]

The Song of India Tandoori Lobster

The Song of India – star worthy?

The Song of India was bestowed a star by the inaugural 2016 Michelin Guide Singapore and is the only Indian fine dining restaurant to have been awarded with a star by the guide. Not to take anything away from The Song of India, but why them over other favourites like Yantra or Punjab Grill is […]

Punjab Grill Appetizer

Punjab Grill at Marina Bay Sands

If even my mom can say that the food was really good, and her friend said it was “the best lunch I’ve had”, then I think you can take it that Punjab Grill at Marina Bay Sands is good. From the ambience to the service to the food, you will notice little touches that will […]

Saha Singapore Mushroom Biryani

{CLOSED} Innovative Indian cuisine at Saha

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 […]
