Me and my makan gang were interested to find real good food in the east and was recommended by one of our friends staying in the east.
I must saw we were totally impressed by the food that was served to us by the chef. First we had the stuffed chicken roll with baked potatoes. Totally heavenly man... the chicken was marinated with the right mix of herbs.. crispy on the outside and tender inside... the brown sauce that was served on it.. hmmmm a dish we cannot forget!
Next up.. Chicken donar kebab.. It was a bit different from the usual middle eastern fare.. but i guess its adopted to Singapore taste. the bread was tender and the chicken on it was roasted perfectly with a bit of the char taste.. It was tender as well =).. Pretty good combination, I actually ta- paoed one back haha
We finished the round with Istanbul Gourmet Laksa. Surprised to hear that Istanbul actually has laksa. Upon talking to the chef, its actually Nyonya Laksa that is cooked traditionally. Very sedap... the gravy was not overly thin like singapore laksa. instead it was a bit creamy and has the scent of multiple local herbs in it. One of the best laksa we have tasted so far!
Would recommend more friends to come by but the chef mentioned that they will be moving out temporarily while the mall is being renovated for a year ++. Neverthe less they have another branch in Joo Chiat. To Istanbul Gourmet Joo Chiat on the next trip!!
