Influenced by both @veronicaphua & @juliuslim, I paid @mrbiryanisg a visit after a two month overdue visit to the barber since it was in the same ‘hood and all. Of course, they only do takeaways & deliveries for now, so I was sat on the train back home with everyone looking at the delicious package dangling between my legs. I’m talking about the package containing my order of Rack of Lamb Biryani ($16) and a side order of Veg Kurma ($7), you filth.⠀

The Rack of Lamb Biryani was crafted from a gargantuan lamb rack which was ravishingly redolent, and only very mildly gamey. I’ve had lamb biryani at other brilliant biryani merchants, and I must say that Mr Biryani’s is the probably most luscious lamb I’ve had out of the trio. It’s stunningly seasoned, mildly gamey, and it’s the most juicy & tender lamb that ever came with a biryani. It’s cooked with a masala mix, but the meat itself was pretty mild.⠀

Well, I later found out where all that masala had gone to. It was fully absorbed by fluffiest, most competently cooked dhum basmati rice at the bottom. The rice was dhummy good, I tell ya hwat. Better yet, there was so much of it I left half of it for another meal and still had more than enough for both meals. Oh, that masala was savagely spicy, and I became a dragon the next morning. Well, I wasn’t spewing fire out my mouth, it was coming out the other end of the digestive tract.⠀

Despite that, the biryani hurts so good. I’ll just have to remember to keep a pint of milk on deck so I don’t spit fire from the wrong end.

I’m gonna be honest with you, when it comes to Indian food, my knowledge is limited to briyani, curry, murtabak & prata. That’s probably one of the reasons why I decided to be a little more adventurous and order @mrbiryanisg veg kurma ($7) as a ‘healthier’ side to the lamb biryani. Even though I’ve never tried it before, it sounded like a relatively decent dish.⠀

The waitress explained to me that the vegetable kurma was cooked with masala, but a quick Google search online cast some doubt on that. Maybe it’s Mr Biryani’s proprietary recipe, I don’t know. But I do know that I relished every spoon of that sumptuous spicy stew of vegetables. ⠀

It was actually thick & lavishly creamy, almost like a curry. It was mildly spicy and utterly unctuous, and the liquid was delicious enough on its own. The string beans, carrots and other mystery veggies inside were really more of a complement to the stellar kurma.⠀

Eating your vegetables is a whole lot easier when it’s immersed in this absolutely ambrosial elixir. Take note, parents of kids who refuse to eat vegetables.

This time round, this came on Monday and it’s the newly launched vegan meal package, perfect option during those #meatlessmonday moments. Available only on Mondays to Thursdays, preordering of these packages are required to ensure that you can get your order on the desired date. The packages come in two different options with a price point of $30 and $60 nett, and they are available for self-collection or delivery.

Pictured is the Vegan Combo for 2, which comes with a starter, biryani, side dish and two breads and this being the first time I am having a full vegan meal from the restaurant, I am thoroughly impressed with the multitude of flavours that I am getting from each bite. From the Gobi Manchurian of deep-fried cauliflower tossed in a sweet & spicy sauce, garlic and spicy onion to the Vegetable Biryani, every item in the menu will spiced up your tastebuds like never before. The latter is a dhum biryani that’s prepared the authentic Hyderabad way with the restaurant’s signature spice and herb mix that instantly perfumes the dining room as you open the cover lid. To complement with the rice, I got the Tofu Palak, a rendition of the palak paneer but instead of cottage cheese, fried tofu is used as the protein which is then cooked in a spinach mix that also consists of spices, dry chilli and ginger garlic paste. To mop up the spinach gravy, I got the tandoori roti and garlic roti to do the job, and they did it impeccably well.

I love meat but if I had my back against the wall and was forced to pick a plant-based meal, the NEW Vegan Set Meal by @Mrbiryani would be my straight-up choice. Because it is unabashedly aromatic flavour central.
Priced at $30 and $60 for 2 and 4 pax respectively, each set offers customers a choice for the starter, biryani rice, dish and roti/bread. Besides the starter which is only one serving, the bigger set has double the number of items per category.
That’s how I got to try both the Vegetable and Brinjal Biryani Rice. The former was good as it had sufficient chopped up long beans, carrots and capsicums but the latter with the cooked-till-squishy eggplants buried in the long grains, remains my favourite.
From the three options for the starter, the Andra Chilli Tofu was the one I went for. It was a tasty dish of firm pieces of beancurd stirfried with ginger, garlic, onions, cashew nuts and chili powder.
The list for the dishes is the longest in this Set Meal, so only after some deliberation did I decide on the Dal Tadka and Vegetable Kurma. Mushy but thick, the Dal was something I enjoyed with the Tandoori Roti a lot but when it came to the spicier and chunky Kurma, I found it paired better with the rice. But of course, this is just my personal preference.

You can order the above for takeaway or delivery from @mrbiryanisg’s link-in-bio on Instagram or at:

Having salivated over @szeliang888’s multiple Instagram Stories whenever he posted about his favourite biryani place - @mrbiryanisg, I gleefully accepted his offer of a treat from there.
And now it’s crystal clear to me why he is a big fan. Everything in the spread of food he ordered was in-your-face delicious.
Take your regular biryani and amplify it, and you’ll get an idea of what #mrbiryanisg’s is like. If I thought their Chicken Biryani was a joy to eat, their vegetarian Green Brinjal #Biryani was the real shocker. Unbelievably tasty, the spice-rich basmati rice had whole mini, plump eggplants from Thailand buried in there, lying in wait to send every one of us to gastronomic heaven with their squishy-softness.
All the dishes seem to possess an intensity in aroma and flavour I hadn’t encountered in a long time. And a few were total mindblowers.
For eg. I don’t usually order Palak Paneer when I dine at an Indian restaurant but I would definitely make an exception for Mr. Biryani’s. Theirs is not “jelak” at all. And those cubes of cottage cheese did such an uncanny impersonation of chicken meat @huatkaliao and his brother were convinced it was poultry 😂😂
Also beautifully balanced was the
Butter Chicken. Many places do versions that veer into “just-too-much” territory but not these guys. They were right on the button.
The Bhindi Marsala was another dish that fell into my “one-of-the-best-I’ve-eaten” category. It enthralled with its mix of spices and oiliness. I know the naysayers will whine about it not being healthy but the liberal use of oil is partly the reason why the food is so darn flavourful.
An exception would be the grilled Tandoori Chicken which was smoky, tender and moist within. I contemplated for a couple of seconds before abandoning my cutlery to eat it with fingers. It was so good.
@szeliang888, thank you again for opening my eyes (and appetite) to the wonders of this restaurant! My family is also won over. So henceforth, no prizes for guessing where we’ll order from when the dum biryani craving hits.
