    Village Briyani CaféPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Served in a true Indian style, the briyani dish comes with a standard set of dalca curry, raita, whole boiled egg and acar. The spice-infused rice packed a robust punch. Opt for their succulent mutton curry as the main dish, which has a nice falling-off-the-bone tenderness and goes well with the briyani rice.

    Tips

    It’s best to call for reservations, especially during the weekends.

    If you don’t mind digging deeper into your wallet, you should go for Abah’s signature briyani gam JDT, which is serves with either chicken or mutton. The set also comes with a soft drink and side dishes, which include acar and telur pindang (hard-boiled egg in spices). The mutton set is particularly awesome, with rich and tender meat that complements well with the briyani rice.
