My Birthday Celebration

Deciding to spend my special day in an out of town area, I ended up having a late dinner at Vansh, located at the Indoor Stadium.

Allowing myself to sin a little this day, I started with the Onion Bhajia, which is crispy Indian fritters that goes well with beer.

I also tried the Dahi Papdi Chaat, a tradtional Indian street food that comes with sweetened yoghurt, chtuney and vermicelli which has a strong taste and will wake up the palette.

For my main course, I tried the Fish Masala, which is fresh sea bass mixed with very rich spices. Fulfilling. Paired this with some Jeera Pulao, which is basmatic rice with cumin.

Ended my meal with the Lychee Kulfi, their own homemade ice cream which made the final oomph to my dinner.

Overall, a pleasant dinner, with great company. What else could I ask for!

food tasting session

Vansh and HGW were kind enough to arrange the invited tasting session a month ago. I usually decline invited tastings but was happy to accept this because I am already familiar with their offerings and was sure that I won't be unduely influenced by 1 specially arranged session. I have taken business partners to Vansh since about 10 years ago, and it continues to remain one of my favourite modern Indian restaurants.

This sister restaurant of Rang Mahal has been designed differently from the traditional Indian restaurant. The decor is tastefully modern with a strong use of colours. One of my favourite tables is the one with the sunken seats by the left side after you step in the doors. You can also observe the show kitchen at work in the middle. Combined with the waterside location, this makes for a very attractive ambience.

Kingfisher beer is served here so you can pair Indian food with Indian beer. On Sundays, a beer and kebabs lunch has been served for a few years - another favourite of mine because it's a great way to enjoy all the kebabs and beer I can eat.

4 chaat were served for appetisers. Dahi Papdi Chaat came with 3 contrasting dips for an exciting explosion of flavours - a good way to start here. Onion Bhajia was great accompaniment to the beer, light and pleasant.

The universal favourite of everyone at the table was the Garam Chicken Tika Chaat. Texture was wonderful, and the skill is in the flavouring and cooking to make a chicken dish outstanding. Everyone kept chomping at this and singing praises.

Fish Masala was served for the mains, with dal, rice and a variety of naan. The meal ended with a Lychee Kulfi. The naan here is excellent and fills you up easily.

Another impressionable thing about Vansh is the pride taken in the presentation of the food. The modern presentation and strong focus on aesthetics suits the decor well and contributes well to the ambience. Excellent service befits the whole experience.

Vansh continues to impress me after all these years, and I am pleased that it upholds the high standards that I have known this while.

HGW food tasting report

After a long break, I was invited for another HGW food tasting. I passed Vansh several time when I am in the Singapore Indoor Stadium area but it looked expensive + I didn't know it is part of the famous Rang Mahal group.

You can view the full menu here.

Service is attentive and friendly. I started with a mango lassi which has a good balance of sweet and sour.

The 4 appetizer items that cosist of:

Dahi Papdi Chaat (flour disc with yoghurt & tamarind chutney)

- like thin wafers with a yoghurt spread on top, light tasting and interesting pairing of wafer and yoghurt

Onion Bhajia (fried onion fritters)

- not oily, more flour then the western breaded onion rings type, goes well with mint dip

Garam Chicken Tikka Chaat (tandori chicken)

- really tender chicken pieces, probably due to the yoghurt marinade, full of flavor

 

Malmali Seekh (tandoori lamb)

- rather strong lamb taste even with the spices, which i don't mind but it may bother others

The main course consist of Sea Bass Fish masala served in a bento style with Lentils, Basmati rice, Chickpeas & Naan. By this time I am quite full from the 4 appetizers but everything's so good that I couldn't stop.

I usually enjoy my Indian meals at more casual/budget eateries so I can really taste the difference in quality here, especially for "basic" items like lentils & chickpeas.

They have a kebab and beer sunday brunch at $32++ which is quite popular with the Tanjong Rhu community (just across the bridge).

The meal rounded off with a creamy lychee kulfi.

vansh " A family affair"

hello ,

To all you foodie lovers and yet to be!

Let me tell you something one can feel the happiness of the soul only when

one rejoices the divine food that can wake up the spirit in you !! Such was my experience with vansh, tucked away in the busy neighborhood of kallang sports stadium is this jewel!

We were invited for a special birthday party dinner at this heavenly place! I was received at the door by a gentleman name Mr lavpreet who was in his late 20's

led by him we stepped into this lovely cozy and warm indian cove filled with vibrant colors and aromatic smell of the tandoor!

We were seated in 2 mins and the menu cards were served by another waiteress called Ms kiran , she is a terrific person and guides you aptly as per your taste buds and choices!! After the intial introduction to the famous dishes and chefs recommendation we placed the order for the starters:

 lawrence road ki aloo tikki and Murgh Angar

verdict: I was baffled by the fireworks in my mouth! The tremendous burst of flavours I was transported back home!! A tad bit spicy for me but it was a joy for my senses! Murgh Angar knocked me off unexpectedly.. meat grilled to perfection , flawless marination with the succulent meat to die for!! ahh !! heaven I am waiting at your doorstep!!

After relishing every morsel of the starter we were ready for our next venture on to the main course :

punjabi cholley, chicken biryani, seafood biryani, boondi raita,tandoor roti, chilli cheese kulcha



For a party of four and a 2 year old kid I think we had a happy feast for the eyes and our belly!

Verdict:

When I tried the chicken biryani I had the warmest feeling of delicious home cooked biryani ! I t was made of a myriad of flavors! Cooked with juicy tender bits of bite sized chicken, it hit the right notes of flavor. Topped with crispy onions and golden raisins what could I yearn for more!

punjabi cholley

it was an instant love for my husband as he is a cholley boy ! Being a vegetarian it is hard to find great dishes that are upto to par with their counterparts!

I knew my husband was delighted with the dish with the mesmerised look on his face and the stumbling words.." wow. this was what I...expected!!"

seafood biryani :

I guess im not a fan of seafood so I was little less excited about trying it! But hey the dish was a surprise for me .. It tasted as heavenly as my Chicken biryani.

With the right amount of mild spices and the abundant treasures from the sea, it was definetly a crowd pleaser!

boondi raita:

A yoghurt based side dish to compliment the spicy biryani , made of chickpea flour based small pebbled indian crispy topping for the dish that was an delight for our tastebuds!

chilli cheese kulcha:

This is our pizza from india.. decorated with piquant chillies and decked with golden crumbs of garlic, to top it off its filled with gooey soft cheese from within ! Forget the world with your first bite!

tandoor roti:

A usual business with roti ,it went well with the cholley, dry and soft bread just to savour the last bit of cholley off our plate!

By this we were just half filled and decided we definetly need the sugar spike to wake ourselves to walk out of the warm atmosphere!! The desserts coming your way!

we ordered the trio platter consisting of

lychee kulfi, rasmalai and gulab jamoon

verdict: mmmm... yumm... oh my god...awesome!!. that's what I heard from each one of them near me! everything was a delicate piece of artwork , savouring our sweet tooth! We were just pondering as to what words would describe our feelings at the moment..We had nothing to complain!!

on the whole our verdict was

Vansh was a divine experience! Food is served with love by each and every member of its staff right from the chef till the waiter. The chef were the real winners as their magical hands gave us these wonderful dishes! They work truly as a family!

so VANSH is a family affair , for a great evening to enjoy, relax and share happy moments accompanied by delicious food!

Yes its a bit expensive but compared to food served and the ambience .. You better be ready to compromise your pocket. Goodtimes never have a price!! what say foodie lovers??

Nb: our great helpers were:

Mr lavpreet, ms kiran, Mr rashid, and ms sheela.

a great choice for modern Indian food

I'll cut the story short and go straight to what's best here:

Garam Chicken Tika Chaat



Tandoor grilled chicken morsels tossed I tomatoes, spring onion and fresh cilantro with chat masala

This was the highlight of the meal. Everyone sang praises about it! In fact, this is the best tandoori chicken I ever had. Chicken usually doesn’t impress me/ it’s not my type of meat, but this chicken was remarkable. It was very tender and the flavours really went into the meat. I highly recommend this dish! This is offered as a starter.

I am not sure what their other chicken dishes taste like however, as they offer like 4 other types of chicken dishes on their menu but I definitely wouldn't mind trying.

The garlic naan was remarkable as well!

It's good to know that the concept here is modern Indian so there's no worries about clogged arteries from ghee and they do include healthier choice options in their menu. I like that concept.
