Regular readers of this blog will know, I have a special love for biryani. And how I often lament the lack of good ones in Singapore, especially when compared to the wonderful biryani we can easily get in so many establishments in India. Of those in Singapore, I do like those served by Mirchi's, but also by Bismillah. Recently, my friend brought me to this place in the Big Splash, and perhaps its been more than 2 years since my last visit to India...but perhaps Indian Times is really good.
The biryani is served as with either lamb, chicken, fish or prawn. We had a chicken and a lamb for our lunch...with a small pot of black dhal.
Pwah! Fragrance like I have not had before in Singapore. As I mentioned, memories of India came flooding back. The rice, is the real deal...beautiful long grained basmati. Beautifully spiced. With a curl or two of deep fried onion as a garnish.
The meats within the rice was absolutely wonderful. Both the chicken and the lamb was literally fall off the bone, melt in your mouth. Not that either had any bone...they have been systemetically removed by the cooks before cooking. The spices are wonderful. The entire dish was piping hot.
Wonderful. Certainly one of the best I have sampled here. And one I will soon be craving to go back to. Very soon.
BTW, the restaurant also serves kebabs and all the usual Northern Indian menu...which I am sure is quite good...but we were there for biryanis...and it satisfied us.
