Such complex flavours in this humble cuisine.

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. 😌

I came here with rocket high expectations and this place still managed to surpass it. I love Indian food and I was really impressed with everything I had. From the vadas to the crispy, buttery laced dosa, we were indeed brought on a gastronomic journey.

We were lucky to have our Indian friend with us who graciously explained to us about the country's culture and food. The table was filled with oohs and aahs from the enlightment of our tastebuds and the knowledge that Indian food takes time, and heart to prepare & we could taste it that afternoon.

Aside from the famed dosa, I would strongly recommend the vada which was so crunchy on the outside yet remained light and fluffy on the inside. The mango lassi as well, brought our meal to a gentle, sweet end (plus they use real mango pulp!).

Go with an open mind and order whatever looks good because, chances are, it would.

I followed my heart & it led me to the fridge.
