“Grab & Go” is the new catchphrase at the @raffleshotelsingapore. And I did exactly that yesterday, vrooming up Seah Street to the entrance closest to the Raffles Hotel Boutique, to whisk my bags of food away. Yup, that venue is now the centralised collection point for food pick-ups ordered from the @tiffinroomsg @yirestaurant by @jeremeleung, @butchersblocksg and The Grand Lobby.
The meal for 4 pax I got from the Tiffin Room was an eye-opener as more than a decade had passed since I last dined there. Vague memories did surface when flavours of this new takeaway meal hit my tastebuds but there’s nothing like being 100% in the present. Especially since it showcases North Indian cuisine by award-winning Chef Kuldeep Negi that is a beautiful assault on the senses. Inspired by the bygone era of the Maharajas, takeaway receptacles notwithstanding, every dish felt like it had been prepared with royalty in mind. For eg. the Raita that accompanied the Biryani was even foamed.
Below are what we inhaled:

1. TULSI PANEER KEBAB - Indian cottage cheese, basil paste and tandoori pineapple salad ($15+) - Firm and chewy, the cheese paired nicely with perky spiced fruit.

2. TIFFIN DAL MAKHANI - Black lentils curry with tomato puree, ghee and spices ($14+) - I surprised myself by how much I enjoyed this buttery-creamy dish. It’s ridiculously tasty in a way that is quite new to me.

3. MACHER JHOL - Barramundi with ginger, onions and Indian spices ($40+) - Bright and complex, I would order this again in a heartbeat.

4. LUCKNOWI MURGH BIRYANI - Richly flavoured Indian basmati rice with whole spices, chicken, Salan gravy and raita ($28+) - There was a good number of chicken pieces buried in the intensely aromatic long-grained rice. Portion is large and can be shared amongst 3 to 4 pax.

5. ASSORTED NAAN - Plain, Butter & Garlic - These were substantial, pleasantly chewy and enjoyable on their own.

6. KESAR RASMALAI - Poached cottage cheese dumplings perfumed with rose water and saffron ($14) - Unlike some heavier ones I’ve had, the dessert was light and not-too-sweet.

The bottle of wine I received to pair with the meal was selected by the Raffles Sommeliers. I must confess though, I have yet to open it as I didn’t want to have alcohol yesterday.
