Culture-forward, Little India-inspired - That’s The Spirit Of The Elephant Room. T R E A T When a business owner has a clear vision of his or her brand, and how to bring every aspect of it to life, that’s bold and refreshing. I got a taste, quite literally, of that when Yugi (@cocktailmahout) got in touch with me and sent over cocktails and light bites from the @elephantroomsg, a culture-forward new spot inspired by Singapore’s Little India. Typical of me, I got more caught up with the food which was audaciously delicious from the liberal use of Indian spices. With such intoxicating aromas on the palate, I found myself enjoying the Lamb Tacos ($18) even though I tend to avoid this meat as I find it too gamey. The finely-shredded lamb shoulder which came in a Puri taco, was fall-apart tender, juicy and extremely tasty from having been marinated in “sup kambing” spices for 12 hours. It came with a sauce that elevated tastiness further with its different dimension. To my surprise, the Grilled Tiger Prawns Glazed in a Tamarind Curry ($24) were even better. It had me sucking on the shells to get at every bit of that incredible curry. The accompanying flatbread was wonderful as well - soft, chewy and ever so slightly sweet. As for the cocktails, each had a fascinating backstory and were unique. While “Sippin’87” was a sweetish, coffee-forward little number (the team’s take on the Espresso Martini with savoury notes from caramelised onions and zest from kombucha), the “Tekka” cocktail paid tribute to the iconic Tekka Market in Little India by swirling together Old Monk Rum, fermented banana, Spiced Palm Jaggery and a hint of turmeric.

Inspired by Singapore’s vibrant and colourful Little India, The Elephant Room has a selection of cocktails that will not only surprise you, it tingles your senses a little too. I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to taste two of these cocktails (thanks Yugi) and each of them brings a distinct flavour and identity. One of the iconic landmarks of Little India is the Tekka Market, and this signature cocktail, Tekka pays homage to the location. Each of the ingredient that goes into the concoction represents a part of the Tekka Market such as the coconut oil that’s infused with the Old Monk Run, mixed with bananas that has been fermented with Himalayan salt for over 7 days and last but not least, spiced palm jaggery. A sip of this and your senses will be tingled by the richness from the rum, savouriness from the salted bananas and sweetness from the jaggery. The next cocktail takes inspirations from the Bru coffee drinking culture in Little India, and the story turned into reality in the form of the Sipping at 78, a rendition of the espresso martini with a local twist. The coffee powder is being “kombucha-ed” with caramelized onion before being bottled. The number from the drink is named after a unit number of a restaurant in Little India, can you guess which restaurant it is? Overall, you will get hints of sweetness and savoury notes from the caramelized onions while balanced by the bitterness from the coffee. And what’s a drinking session without some food? By pairing with the right kind of food, it resulted in an even better cocktail, and one of them is the spiced lamb tacos which is constructed with pulled lamb shoulder that has been marinated for over 12 hours in a sup kambing broth over a puri taco. Another one of those finger lickin’ good moment is the grilled tamarind curry prawn which comes with a homemade flatbread. Just the name of the dish is enough to make me salivate. •••••••••••••••••••• 📍The Elephant Room 20A Teck Lim Road, Singapore 088391 https://www.theelephantroom.sg/

Creamy Buttery Liquid Gold I ended off my night by sipping some of their Ghee liqueur neat. Honestly, it smells ordinary, but tastes AMAZING. It's like liquid butterscotch on steroids!!! I don't like ghee in my food, but I'd happily drink this all day. Totally blew my mind. The Elephant Room has sold me on these crazy funky infusions. I am sure it's not easy to get the perfect balance, but I do hope they continue to reinvent their infusions & cocktails in fresh ways to keep things exciting. 💳 Accepts credit cards 🌬 Air-conditioned seats only 📱 Accepts reservations via Chope

Char Siew Chop Chop Biryani Set This set comes with 1 meat and 3 sides. I’ve opt for Char Siew (meat) and the 3 sides (fixed) are masala cauliflower, molten egg and spiced chickpeas. The Char Siew is tender and flavourful but the portion is abit small as compared to the rice. (S$6.50 - Islandwide Delivery) *Circuit Breaker period*

Amoy Street Food Center 26/07/19 Chop Chop Biryani & Meats This stall promotes its 'Siu Yoke Biryani' hence its kind of obvious which meat to choose but they do have a variety of options Base (Additional Base +$1): Biryani Rice, Sesame Noodle, Garlic Baguette Meat (Additional Meat +$1.50): Siu Yoke, Salted Egg Chicken, Pork Masala, Char Siew, Tau Kwa Goreng, Sotong 3 Sides (Additional Side +$0.70): Molten Egg, Pineapple Salsa, Spiced Chickpea, Pappadum, Lady's Finger, Cabbage Thoran Biryani Rice ($5.50) - Roasted Pork Belly, Molten egg, Lady's finger, Cabbage thoran - Curry itself was not too spicy, tasted very clean, not the rich creamy kind - Rice had bits of star anise, was overall very fragrant - Love the crackling of the pork belly, High meat-to-fat ratio; One of the more lean cuts of pork belly I've tried - Lady's finger was soft and mushy - Molten egg had a slightly runny yolk Definitely an above average briyani without being overly greasy or rich While the curry was not overly spicy, by the end of the dish, I had beads of sweat forming so you may want to ask them to cut down on the curry if you can't take spice or do not want to sweat. (Just my personal opinion, I think this stall intentionally makes it dishes healthier by cutting down on the cream they used in their curry and the amount of oil in their dishes to accommodate to the office crowd here because its definitely the 'cleanest' biryani I've had thus far) Price: 8.5/10 (Very worth it IMO) Taste: 8/10 (Above average briyani) Overall: 8.5/10 More photos at: https://www.instagram.com/p/B0p495ogx2X/?igshid=rvhemumglgq5

Butter Chicken & Palak Paneer I always come back here for their romali roti since no one does it as well as they do. Also, they turn up the spices in their curries and it tastes much more flavorful as compared to other North Indian restaurants. They’ll also give you a free ice cream on your birthday with a birthday card! Great service!

Papri Chaat - a popular Indian street food. The crisp fried dough biscuit known as Papri is made from flour and oil. The topping is a colourful combination of chick peas, potatoes, yogurt, mint & coriander chutney, cumin powder, tomato, tamarind dates chutney, red chilli powder and that's about all I jotted down as quickly as I could. The crunchy little bits of noodle like toppings are known as sev made from chickpea noodles. I was told it will be an explosion of flavours in the mouth and it was truly so. Sweet, sour, tangy and spicy flavours all in a bite with different textures happening all together - creamy, crispy and crunchy. My favourite from lunch today and I am convinced (finally!) that I do like Indian cuisine after all. Gastronometer: 9/10

Sensational Indian Paradise Went for the weekend lunch buffet, at $35++ pax. First good impression was the atmosphere which is at what you expect from a 4+ stars restaurant, along with the friendly staff. The food though was even better than my expectations. I have been to many $30-$40 places, mostly average, so didn't put much hope for this buffet. So glad that I was wrong, the flavors were memorable, and me and family couldn't stop pronouncing how delicious was each dish we tried. The buffet included Papdi Chaat, several of curries, grilled station, saffron rice, naans and several deserts. Although all were delicious, my top notch choices are the Papdi Chaat which was full of flavors and the Chicken curry which was the most tender and succulent chicken I have ever eaten. Definitely will be coming back to Shah Maharani.

Best Dum Biryani I Can Remember Having. T R E A T 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.

Once again, I am here to tempt you with the excellent spread from Mr. Biryani. The good folks at Mr. Biryani has put together two different set packages, in addition to their ala carte menu items; for takeaways and deliveries that you can enjoy at the comfort of your own home. Pictured is the Package A ($60 nett, inclusive of delivery fee) which is good for 2-4 pax. You get a selection of a starter, two biryani, two dishes and two naans which we chose the gobi Manchurian, Hyderabad chicken dhum biryani, boneless mutton biryani, butter chicken masala, paneer butter masala, garlic and butter naan respectively. Trust me when I say this, the amount of food will definitely fill you up. Even though there are some type of food that is not suitable for delivery as the taste might be compromised, you can rest assure that the biryani that we have gotten is still top notch and the perfumed spices, as you open up the boxes, will instantly fill the dining table. If you have seen my previous reviews of Mr. Biryani, you would have already guessed that it’s one of my top biryani spots and it still stays that way till today. If you prefer to order the ala carte items, do note that there is a $10 delivery fee is your orders fall below $60. •••••••••••••••••••• 📍Mr. Biryani 32 Norris Road, Singapore 208274

Chicken Murtabak - It’s Big Enough To Be Shared By Two, Springleaf Prata Place is in my opinion, on another level with their food. Take their Chicken Murtabak for example. Aesthetically a design lover’s dream, it fits perfectly on the silver tray it is served on. Such precision creates a modern graphic look which is an interesting contrast to a very traditional dish. In terms of taste, I think the Murtabak is good as the dough itself is very thin and fried to a glorious golden-brown crisp. The minced chicken filling though can be a tad dry but once curry is splashed on, it is no longer an issue. Especially since Springleaf Prata Place does a most excellent fish curry that’s aromatic and thick. Another plus point? It is free-flow. I have long loved fresh green chilli in my Prata and Murtabak, so I pay extra for some to be thrown in. If you are keen to have a fruity brightness and heat cutting through, I recommend giving it a go.

Red Bean Prata - What A Great Snack This Makes. My parents, especially my dad, like red bean desserts, so when my friend Annette told me how much she and her brother enjoy the Red Bean Prata at @springleafprataplace is, I knew I had to order one for them to try. It was a hit! Even after about the ten minutes it took me to travel to my parents’ home, the thin dough of the prata was crispy. And it stayed that way after cooling down completely. It was such a lovely combo with the smooth and sweet red bean paste filling. It paired nicely with freshly-made hot coffee.
