Over at Tekka Food Centre, there are quite a number of briyani stalls that sometimes one would be spoilt for choice. However, there's one supposedly very famous briyani stall that commands long queues during meal hours (or so I read in reviews).
Introducing the self-claimed briyani specialist: Allauddin's Briyani. Now, there are actually two stall-fronts located opposite to each other. Their business must be really thriving...
Anyway their briyani rice are stored in their large aluminium pots and they will scoop out the rice on to the plate first then the meat and then the rice again on top to cover the meat. Most probably to allow the flavour of the meat to be absorbed into the rice. In my case, I bought the mutton briyani ($4.50).
I think the mutton was really quite tender and the curry was not too spicy. The rice was a tad too wet and soggy for my liking. It was not loosely separated enough.
Overall, I think there was nothing really too special about this briyani specialist. The mutton was not bad but the rice failed to impress me. I tried their chicken tandoori and it was not bad as well. Anyway, if you do drop by Tekka Food Centre, maybe you can give it a try and drop me a comment how you think it fares?
