1) To convert an Irish friend into an Indian food lover while bringing him around Singapore. (Having to convert at least 4 friends in my life and none have so far acknowledge my contribution to enlightening their taste buds, I continue my quest.)
Reasons for choice
1) Was converted at Aangan myself
2) Affordable buffet spread where Mr Ireland can choose what he wants
3) Mr Ireland is a vegetarian because he grew up in a ranch! Indian cuisine full of veggies goodness is thus a natural choice.
1) Wide buffet spread with at least 6 meats, 6 vegs, decent salad bar, 1 soup, 1 rice, 1 dessert, 1 fruit platter and freshly made naans served to your table.
2) Garlic naan was crispy and tasted fantastic with either mint or mango chutney. Even more heavenly when you use it to wipe up any left-over curry or gravy on your plate
3) Tandoori chicken is tender with a slight delicious burnt taste. Drizzle more mint chutney on them please
4) Bhindhi Jaipuri is flavourful with crunchy cauliflower and very soft and sweet potatoes
5) Fish masala has just a tinge of coying spiciness which will suit most taste buds
6) Saffron rice because it just sound expensive and good for your skin
1) Palak Paneer lacks the kick that Aangan used to have while they were in Funan. Very disappointed indeed because that is my secret weapon to convert people.
2) They served creamy corn soup in North Indian buffet! Hello...
3) They did not replenish the fruits and mint chutney and mint chutney and MINT CHUTNEY.
4) The Chinese guy in black suit looking like the boss tried to hard-sell to us their cocktails and thus very intrusive. Chinese boss? Maybe this is the reason for corn soup? Promoting cocktails/mocktails instead of lassi??
5) The waiter while friendly told me that the final bill has taken in the UOB discount which in the end I realised DIDN'T.
1)From experiences, food is of better quality when you order the ala carte at Aangan
2)Please double check the bill before leaving the place
3)Indian cuisine like Indian authors are intriguing, full of depth and very much worth exploring and preserving. Aangan can do better.
Was converted at Aangan 9 years ago, failed to convert Mr Ireland today.
