Does the food above entice you ?? Am in the midst of writing the review... hahahaha!!!
First up on the list- Spice Road, a new food outlet that's new on the block. Serves persian, spicy oriental (indian/chinese), the masala territory..
I'm not a person who loves spices and stuff, but this place is really good. Been there twice in a week.
First time, went wif two friends. I was sooooo excited coming here, was even taking pictures of the entrance and all (so you get to view it laaaa) My two friends were like... duhhhh... haha!
Walked in, we were greeted by the friendly staff who ushered us to our seats... ok lar... not too bad impression of that place.
We had drums of Spice Road (their signature dish), beef vindaloo, manque miramar (squid), Labanese ta wook, aubergine and garlic naan.
You've gotta try the Drums of Spice Road. I was ecstatic when I took my first bite. Another favourite of ours was the Labanese ta wook which is served on a layer of top quality rice (ok I'm not a professional food critic here ok....) But it was really yummy. that's my pal's Oi Leng's favourite dish.The squid was a bit chewy (order this if you wanna exercise your jaw) but the stuffing was really good... I asked one of the staff what was the stuffing and found that it was a mixture of crab meat, fish,prawn... really nice stuffing!
The aubergine turned out really yummy. Beef vindaloo was a bit spicy,and the meat wasn't tender.
Garlic naan was superb.... I'm not a garlic fan but this was incredible. can fight wif another place in SS2 that serves really nice naan....
Anyway....For dessert we had Kulfi which is Indian ice-cream. I can't recall how the restaurant manager Siva described it...It has loads of spices and very saffron-ny... So if you love spices and the taste of saffron, give this a go.
My second visit with another different batch of frens, my friend Sabrina LOVED the ambience and the Indian classical music. Even before the food hit the table she was already totally mesmerised with the place.
And the aroma from the kitchen really whet our appetite. This time around we had the help of Siva who recommended the dishes. We ordered Dinggri Shaslic, Chicken Vindaloo, aubergine,drums of spice road, and served with Dum briyani and garlic naan.
Sabrina loved to haf Indian food and when she had the briyani rice she was applauding it,branding it the best that she's tasted... lol... She was more ecstatic than me abt the place there. haha!
The Dinggri Shaslic is button mushroom stuffed with chicken and lamb and coated with a batter and deep fried. AWESOME!
Chicken vindaloo was delicious too, unlike the previous time when the beef was a bit hard.
hmmm... *wat else to write huh...*
Good news for Muslim friends - this place is pork free-HALAL!
Spice Road is open from 7days a week, serves lunch from 12 - 3. coffee &snacks 3-6 and dinner at 6 -10
