The authentic Singapore supper experience

    0   This stretch of restaurants along Cheong Chin Nam Road has a shadow of the roadside stalls in Malaysia or Indonesia. It has a distinctive and refreshing style as compared to the usual restaurants situated in shopping malls. The most popular restaurant and famous supper place is Al-Azhar Eating Restaurant where you can get your pratas, murtabaks and thosais.   0   It was one of those unforgiving Singapore sunny days. The afternoon heat was almost unbearable, but luckily, the milk tea ($1.60+) I ordered arrived quickly and quenched my thirst.   0     0     0   I ordered a chicken murtabak ($6+) to satisfy my cravings, and it tastes exactly like how I expected it to be. Fantastic job with the balance of crispiness and fluffiness of the prata and chicken, to which I mopped up with a good dose of the mildly spicy curry. I love how it tastes very traditional and hit the right spot just as I imagined it to be.

Diarrhoea after dinner!!

My partner and I bought the following for dinner on Monday night (March 3rd) : Garlic Naan, Cheese Naan, Butter Chicken, Chicken Byrani and shared a Bandung. Abeit we did a takeaway but we were home within 5min and started eating within 10minutes after. The food was still warm.

The chicken bryani was so-so, I've had better at Bt Purmei. And I've definitely had better garlic and cheese naan in melbourne - there was just no fragrance to the naans.

The butter chicken is good only if you like it very sweet. It tatsed more like satay than any other butter chicken I've tried and I've definitely tried a few because it used to be my favourite dish. Overall, it was a disappointing dinner given how good the reviews were.

What's worse is that we were both awaken in the early morning with multiple bouts of diarrhoea. I even took MC the next day. We came to the conclusion that the source is probably the bryani because I had most of it.

In all, I doubt it's a place I'll go back to given the experience but the service was great.

Absolutely yummy - outstanding quality, taste, and consistency - and service has always been wonderful. Ate here every day for two years while my son was growing up.  Never considered going anyway else for breakfast.

Does it get crowded on Sundays?  Yes - but for good reason.  it is the best eating place for miles around.  Indian, Malay - even Western and Thai food.  I see lots of repeat customers, and see the owner around a lot as well.  Both good signs.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
