Bursting with aromas, flavours, and colours – it certainly perks up all senses at once.

    Chicken curry and biryani – hands down, its one of life’s best pleasure package. And to wolf down a winning combination, make your way to Hameediyah Restaurant, the oldest nasi kandar and briyani house on the island. Expect a never-ending crowd, which is always a good sign and jump over an empty table. Tender pieces of chicken are simmered amidst savoury-spicy curry and once it's drenched over a bed of briyani rice, you just can't get enough of it.
