We decided to try and catch the NDP fireworks at East Coast Park. So we met late, and walked around a bit thinking about what to have for lunch. Since we were celebrating 2 birthdays + National Day, we thought we'd give ourselves a good treat.
Landed up at Kinara. I haven't had Indian food for a while, and the thought of having variety to choose from (buffet + free flow kebabs and naan) was quite nice.
What I found interesting about Kinara were these screens which separated the sitting areas from each other. It felt as if we had a private corner - though in reality, we were sitting next to the main door! Very Chinese-looking screens too, which together with the black and grey decor, made Kinara very "contemporary" indeed.
I liked the pappadum - nicely peppered with spice. I like the naan too - my favourite was the garlic naan. It went very well with this sumptuous black dal paste, which I figured must be a black bean curry of sorts. We took to the mushroom kebabs which were an odder shade of green than they tasted, and ate more than a decent share of chicken and mutton curry. I didn't stomach any dessert - they were all too sweet for my liking. All in, it was a meal to remember, not least because we had chosen to eat such fiery food amidst the heat of ECP! :-p Well, if it helped, we walked 5km later and worked off all the calories... :-)
