Michelin Bib Gourmand Briyani, that's located at Dunlop Street, which is in Little India Vicinity.

This briyani is not served with any curry. But like most dum briyani i had, the chicken is coated with dry curry and fried onions. Chicken was tender, but the breast meat part can get rather dry. Rice was fragrant.

This certainly is one of the better briyani place I had.

Interior was a little dark and depressing to be honest.

Kulfi is a traditional Indian "ice cream"

Here at Bismillah, You pop it out of the cup and eat it like ice cream on a stick.

Unlike traditional ice cream, this is harder and denser. Milky and custardy.

First time I'm having Kulfi, this really appeals to my sweet tooth, now I will keep a look out for Kulfi when I visit Any Indian food establishment.

Simply put, one of the best briyani I've tried in Singapore. The rice is light and fluffy but still so fragrant and packed with flavour. The lamb is tender and savoury and each bite is perfect in its meatiness.

This Michelin Bib Gourmand stall by chef-owner Arif Salahuddin has been regularly regarded as having among the best renditions of this dish since 2008.
Generous with the spice blend and portion size, the heaping plate has morsels of bone-in mutton peeking out from the fluffy mound of spiced basmati rice, crowned with swirls of fried shallots.
Cooked dum style, the mutton meat pulls off easily, tender and succulent without being gamey, boldly meaty savoury spice in taste.
The loose grains of rice separate easily, with the biryani masala spice blend lending a fragrant, non-oily, grainy sweet savoury spice flavour infused into the rice.
Completed with a side of creamy raita, the milky sweet sour yoghurt cutting through the richness of this lovely dish.

Bismillah Briyani is Michelin bib gourmand awarded for their briyani (duh), and of course I had to go see if it was the real life, or if it was just fantasy. The interior decor probably dates back to when the last of the actual bohemians sang a rhapsody, and it really shows.

Their signature kid goat briyani is fifteen (!!!) dollars for a regular sized plate. Fifteen? You GOAT to be kidding me, Scaramouche. Yes, all seven sizeable chunks of kid goat were stunningly sapid and tremendously tender, while the rice was felicitously fluffy and shockingly spicy. Still, it’s extremely expensive and not worth the moolah, especially if you’re just a poor boy from a poor family.

It’s not the price that is the reason why I’ll never go back, however. No, the food was quite remarkable, so it ain’t that. No, it’s because the most gargantuan fucking cockroach in Little India decided to smugly plop itself on the empty (thankfully) seat opposite me and engage me in a staring contest which it lost. After it scurried away, the putrid fucker actually tried to climb onto my shoe!

Mama, I just killed a pest. Put my foot down on its head, squished the bastard, now he’s dead. And that, ladies and gentlemen, was how I knew I outstayed my welcome at Bismillah, and it was high time for me to didi mau. Goodbye everybody, I’ve got to go.

Tl;dr: fuckin bugs man, them bugs are everywhere


I feel compelled to saturate my review with synonyms of "aromatic" — this Michelin-affirmed rice possessed it in spades.
Texture-wise, the rice was grainy and avoided greasines, whilst still retaining the right degree of moisture. However, it was that explosion of boisterous spice-laden flavours that stole my heart; paired with chunks of succulent lamb, similarly oozing in rich flavours, it was a satisfying dish to say the least.
The price tag is admittedly steep, but worth a try nonetheless for what is touted as one of the best local authentic Hyderabad style "dum" biryanis.
