Great Indian Spread So... we might have gone just a tad overboard in ordering between the two of us, but definitely no regrets! They're known for their chapatis and it is clear why. Chapati isn't my favourite carb in Indian cuisine, but these might just have changed my mind. They were pleasantly mild in tasting, and were not at all dry, unlike previous chapatis I've had. Most also order the Keema along with their chapatis, but I actually preferred pairing mine with their chicken curry. It was familiar in taste, and resembled like our prata and curry without all that oil. If you're a huge tendon fan like I am, please do not miss out on ordering the tulang! Instead of the red tulang that is commonly found in the other Indian Muslin establishments, these were served with the same curry previously mentioned. My mother said the tendons were a little too tough, but I didn't mind a single bit because it had a nice chew. Probably not the best item to order on a first date because chewing around the bone to get to the best bits in the tiniest nooks and crannies (yes all that anatomy lessons have paid off) isn't the most glamorous sight, but it is an immensely rewarding experience. The ladies finger and dal were great vegetarian options to balance out all that meat too. But the dish that impressed us the most, was certainly one which we were not expecting- goat's brain. It was delightfully creamy, and both the texture and taste actually reminded us of scrambled eggs. It did have a mild organ taste, but nothing too off-putting. Beautifully spiced, and packed a nice gentle heat. If you're game for it, definitely give it a go! Overall, a very satisfying lunch that I'm certain will set me in a food coma soon, but I sure ain't complaining. 😌
Chapati, Mutton Keema, Bittergourd, Ladies Fingers, Potato & Cauli All this for three of us was just nice, total spent $12.70! Epic meal, the chapati is warm and fragrant, perfect as always. The keema was hearty, spicy, not gamey at all and just a great Indian bolognese! The bittergourd was the star for me 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 Another lovely lunch at Azmi’s.
Lunch today of the legendary chapatti with masala mutton. Mutton was really lean and tender. Total damage $7.00. Takes only 2 pieces of chapatti to fill me up cos it's made of whole wheat. Yums! ••• Azmi Restaurant Add: 168/170 Serangoon Road (Beginning of Norris Road) ••• #sglegendaryhawker

Review on 1)Begedel, 2) Brinjal Balado & 3) Ayam panggang (Total: $6) Date visited: 15/5/2018 (Tue, 4pm) There was a queue when I reached. Waited for about 15-20min in line before I got to order my food. One of the better nasi padang spots. Begedel was really savoury with a tinge of sweetness. One of the best I have had. It left the deepest impression out of the three dishes I picked. Certainly a must-try! Wish it wasn't so oily though. Excess oil clearly wasn't drained before serving. Brinjal balado was tasty. Despite looking really hot and spicy, this dish is surprisingly, not (too) spicy. Eggplant was well cooked; soft and silky. It came apart effortlessly when I gently pried a piece apart with my fork and spoon. Ayam Panggang was also good. Drumstick was perfectly cooked. Supremely tender and flavourful. But I wish the gravy was less oily. All in all, this is a stall worth trying out since its standard is above average. Price is above average as well.
Nasi Padang One of the better nasi padang I ever had. There were so many dishes that I could choose from, every dish in that store was so tempting. I ordered the combination of Sambal Goreng, Brinjial Balado and the BBQ chicken. Each dish has it's own unique taste and it's just a burst of flavours when you put everything together. Tip: order the tahur telur, you will be surprised and taken away by how good this side dish is.
Mondays Are Quiet At This Hawker Centre But “Sinar Pagi Nasi Padang” Is Open - Yay!! Mondays ain’t blue. Mondays can be every imaginable shade of vibrant when you greet it head-on with a sedap (that’s Malay for “delicious”) Nasi Padang. Today, I picked out “Paru with Sambal Belado”, “Petai with Ikan Bilis” and “Sambal Goreng” to pile on my plate of rice. TH decided to get some Grilled Chicken, Omelette, Bittergourd and a Beansprout Salad with Toasted Coconut Flakes and Four-Angled Beans for his. I also ordered a bowl of “Nangka Masak Lemak” for us to share. The gravy is too fragrant to not be slurped up by itself.

AmaZing Pita And hummus! Fluffy like clouds pita and smooth savory hummus. All for a good price! Special pita flavors at $2.20 each Garlic was my favorite! Za’atar was good but not really my thing. Ask the shopkeeper to heat t up for you so you can snack as you walk! 100g of hummus for $3 Add some olive oil! It was very very tasty but a little too smooth for me (I’m a crunchy peanut butter girl) I wanted to get the hummus special for $13 recommended by fellow burpplers but that’s only offered if the tables are available (note only 2 two seaters are provided outside the shop)
Za'atar Pita, Homemade Hummus One of my favourite places to stop by for a delicious snack. This places supplies the best pita in the country to some of the best restaurants, so you know you're in for a treat! My favorites are the wholemeal and za'atar pitas, served warm alongside their superbly creamy hummus. Say yes when he asks if you take spicy, and you'll be rewarded with a lovely dusting of chili powder. Loaded with whole chickpeas and hard boiled eggs, this was divine. I also loved the really simple, no frills environment, just sitting along the walkway at Bali Lane and snacking on these beauties 👌🏻
Pita (from $1) & Homemade Hummus (from $5 for 100g) I’ve walked past this section several times but sadly never once noticed this bakery. 💔 Apparently, it’s been here for three years(!!) and they bake some of the most uhmayzing pita bread on the island daily and supply various hotels and restaurants including Common Man Coffee Roasters and Fat Prince. You can purchase fresh pita from their in-house assortment — white ($1), wholemeal ($1.50), sesame seeds, garlic, za’atar ❤️❤️, Spicy New Orleans/cajun ($2.20 for any with toppings) — along with various dips to enjoy on the spot or to take home (they’re on Deliveroo too!). Oh, and they don’t use canned chickpeas for their hummus; they soak the chickpeas overnight to soften before cooking instead. So next time you’re planning a mezze party or craving for good pita and spreads, you know where to go!

Spring Onion Omelette Banh Mi You may easily brush-off this item on their menu a being one of those boring vegetarian options but Uncle Ho's Tuckshop does a simple yet delish Spring Onion Omelette Banh Mi ($7.90). Cradled nicely between the homemade crusty-soft baguette, the golden folds were fragrant and nicely seasoned. And much like a Vietnamese-style eggs on toast, the combination also makes for a quick breakfast perk-me-up with crunchy vegetables and tangy pickles stuffed within. Drizzled with a little Sriracha sauce, the bundle includes a slow, tantalizing tongue-numbing heat too (of course more so for me, due the fact that I can't handle spice).
Hanoi Bun Cha A delicious hidden gem that I finally got down to visiting after @rinns recommendation, Uncle Ho Tuckshop located inside a commercial building offers some kickass Vietnamese noodles (psst maybe even one of the best in Singapore imho). Having their signature and the very dish made famous when Anthony Bourdain gave Barack Obama a crash course on Vietnamese cuisine in Hanoi, their Buncha Lunch Value Set Meal which includes a drink ($14.90) was simply delightful and amazingly appetising. Served with a sweet tangy broth with a mixture of grilled pork belly and grilled meatball, the Buncha is to be eaten like a Vietnamese Soba, adding condiments in to enhance the flavours and dipping the rice vermicelli into the soup. And of course in true Vietnamese style, a side of fresh greens and herbs to introduce different textures and taste to the bowl. Though a tad astringent with its base flavour being pickled vegetables, the sourish elements really supplement and amp up the broth. Won’t recommend drinking it as a soup but man it is super shiok - a balanced and harmonious blend. But the highlight for me was certainly the thin slices of pork that reminded me of bacon at first bite and the well-seasoned grilled meatballs. Slurps. Their iced lemongrass-pandan was two thumbs-up, too.
Hanoi Bun Cha Interesting dip noodles from Vietnam! Sweet dip before adding in Garlic & Chilli but after adding it tastes different in a nicr way! $14.90 for a lunch set including a drink. Will try the baguette next time!
