One of Our Favorite Haunts in Little India

Hubby and I decided to stroll over to Anjappar on Syed Alwi,

one of our favorite Little India haunts, for a light Sunday supper. For drinks I had a salty lime juice (so

nice to have a non-sweet, low calorie alternative to diet soda or water) and

hubby had the very good Kingfisher Strong beer. For eats we had a whole Tandoori chicken – Anjappar has the best

Tadoori in the neighborhood in our opinion and– veg sheesh kebab, which was not

individual vegatables but a sort of fine ground mixture formed into a cylinder. I liked this a lot; it was light and

crunchy and served with lime, onion slices, and a tasty, creamy, green chutney

(mint and coriander I think).

Hubby was underwhelmed though – too subtly flavored for him. We also had spicy fried rice Chindian

style as a lighter alternative to the delicious but ghee laden biryani, (it was fairly mildly spiced actually), and

dry aloo gobi which was OK but nothing to write home about, overcooked to my

taste, with a mushy texture. The

service here is efficient but borders on the rude, but actually we enjoy this

because it’s a challenge to see if we can get the servers to smile a

little. We ordered intentionally

enough for three people because we wanted leftovers for a late night snack. In all we spent $59.

Perfect place to eat bone briyani for 11 dollars. It takes gold mining skills to find chicken between bone pieces. Polite waiters will kindly tell you to accept this meal as it is. Must go place for archeologists and paleontologists.

Recommended another yummy indian makan place by colleague and overate again. :P

1) Egg Dosa - I didn't know you have have egg with your thossai!! Great combo!!

2) Chilli Paneer - this version here was not as good as the one from Gayatri.

3) Butter Chicken Curry - this is good!!! So good that others kept stealing from my dish!!

4) Plain Biriyani - there nothing plain about this rice dish. Very fragrant very yumz. This one, they beat Gayatri hands-down. :)

Verdict is that I have to go two places if I want the best of everything... :P
