Theres mutton fats and some sour plum? Based sauce that's quite similar to the stringray one, except it's not as sour. Otherwise the ckn thigh was very sweet, but it's really quite similar so there's really no reason to travel to the middle of nowhere once you've tried one of them, the novelty wears off and it's seriously quite painful to travel to, a long walk from the nearest MRT station

Chef has been dropping briyani very often recently so now's a good time to camp on his insta, he drops almost twice every week it seems.

The rice is the same as the previous one i had, i guess it's probably the same for all his biryanis. The stringray was cooked very well, it's flaky and meaty and it's a huge slab. The paste is what's unique, it's plum based i believe but the sweetness is very muted, it's mainly a very balanced sourness. Quite complex and it's surprisingly light overall

Worth a try if convenient, pretty unique and pretty good. Not rating it any higher because the taste is actually somewhat familiar, plus probably his biryanis dont taste ridiculously different from each other so if you've alr had one type it's a diminishing returns scenario

Overall, given that this briyani is very unique and well-executed, I think this is as much as you can expect for an experience, and so it was worth the travel for sure. But whether it's worth travelling for+waiting for the 1145pm drop + 30bucks of grab back home+messing up my sleep schedule? That's really subjective, I'm on the fence.

If you stay nearby aljunied, and you happen to catch him on insta, I'd say it's well worth a try. Otherwise I think it's really only worth it if you're a briyani connoisseur

PS this chef has way too much personality lol. His WhatsApp texts are very colourful and not everyone may be comfortable w it. I personally found some parts abit weird

I'll be the first to tell you I hate Instagram hype, but this is damn good.

I've had a lot of good briyani, but I don't think I've had one that's like this. Generally it's always soaked in gravy, but not here.

Instead of a sauce base it's just a simple salt base, where the natural flavours come through, but accented with spices. The rice themselves were well seasoned and quite flavourful in a pure way, not from other sources of umami. Surprisingly it's not too strongly spiced, you can see there weren't that many pieces of spices

The mutton was tremendously tender, it was really basically melt in your mouth. The mutton fats were explosive too, so soft and a grade above anything I've had before, in terms of the cleanness of the flavours and the lack of greasiness. It really does meld together with the veggies at the bottom to become one indistinguishable mixture. There's a lot of green chili at the bottom and that carries a serious slow burn. Thankfully I ate quickly enough that it only hit when I was almost done with the meal

The second I've obtained from the dark savant of briyani. Oh, long hath I waited for another taste of unholy decadence — like a forbidden dish damned by God, for fear of mere mortals being overwhelmed by its otherworldly taste. It was simultaneously bursting with inexplicably complex flavours whilst also pleasurably burning the tongue with a diabolical heat.
Furthermore, the sweetness of the honey cut through the flavours mercilessly like an executioner's blade, dyeing the dish in a deep crimson that bestowed a vibrancy which layered harmoniously atop the other richer flavours.
That massive slab of chicken was tender and juicy throughout, and seductively tinged with honey. The basmati rce was on point as always — fluffy and dry but with decent moistness while not turning soggy from gravy. Life is now complete? Not quite, I am desperate for a bite of his stingray briyani before I commit sudoku.

Briyani from @globalmatsoulkitchen requires painstaking effort to acquire — get into his IG account, then wait for his fun black-metal-inspired posts and pray you're fast enough (usually gone within minutes).
It's worth the trouble — this unholy creation could make even angels weep with masochistic pleasure, as their mouths are engulfed in flames of sacrament. Each mouthful exploded with aroma, whilst a complex storm of spice-forward flavours ravaged thy tongue, leaving it lightly but sensually torched from a mild heat, but also simultaneously aroused from a hedonistic indulgence of flavours.
The mutton was fork-tender and delicious, with a controlled dose of enjoyable gaminess that would intoxicate Satan himself. Above all, the basmati rice was fluffy and moist, but not soggy from the gravy.
