Not as good as I expected

Perhaps it is because I have been to Bismillah and found the Briyani fantastic there (albeit not cheap at $9 a pop).

Abak has been recommended by many and they were closed for a few weeks last month and today they were open ... here came my chance.

The serving size is generous if a bit smaller than Bismillah. The chicken briyani came with a whole leg and the mutton came with a decent mutton chop of about 150g. The rice was fluffy, nicely coloured, not oily, long (quality) ... So far so good. No raita here but some dhal gravy which means some localisation here. The mutton was a little on the tough side. The chicken was OK. The rice, well it was authentic, but a little bland tasting. It somehow did not have fragrance that a good dam briyani should have...

Ambience was very spartan but clean. $6.50 is OK price wise but no egg and papad here ($8 at Bismillah without egg and papad)/.

There are at least 5 shops selling briyani at the vicinity but this one is the best. Serves only 2 dishes - chicken and mutton briyani and they are superb. Opens at 11am but may run out of stock after 2pm.
