it was a great Arabic Middle Eastern food. Very tasty, flavourful and pocket friendly. The winners of the night are the Hummus, the chicken & the garlic sauce. We’ll definitely come back to try the Shawarma and the rest of the dishes. Cheers!!
Jalan Besar is chock full of cafes, and a new upstart that opened in the second quarter of this year is Steep, located along the fringes of Little India.
Overall I think that this cosy cafe is worth paying a visit if you are in the area, for some pretty yummy brunch dishes that don’t cost a bomb
I'd still rather go to Usman though.
Haleem from Bismillah Biryani. This one wasn't as citrusy as Usman's, perhaps because one was supposed to squeeze the lime on themselves. But those awesome fried shallots on top made up for it, helping me to wolf this delicious paste down in seconds.
Oh man, that was delicious. After just one bite I had to interrupt the lunch conversation today just to say how amazing this was.
I got the mutton biryani, which (as usual) was deliciously savory, spicy, and greasy.
Actually, the chicken itself was pretty dry too, so if I order the chicken briyani again, then I'll just eat the yummy rice and discard the bird.
Bismillah had more spice going on and is served without dalcha. Instead, one gets something which I thought tasted like buttermilk. Not raita.
It was definitely too overpowering for my taste buds! Only thing I enjoyed about this plate was the mutton.
