    Mani Villas

    Not a stranger to the Indian gastronomy on the island, Mani Villas has been reaping up reputations as one of the finest places to charm your taste buds with richly spiced curries and sheer spread of meats and vegetables. Daily you can expect a lip-smacking good chicken curry but the main draw is on Sundays, where kampong chicken is preferred over its counterpart. Expect a more intense flavour and meats that are fork-tender. Indeed, you just can’t stop ladling more and more gravy onto your banana leaf meal. Wash it all down with their masala tea, which evokes the aftertaste to extend the party on your palate.

    Oh boy, nasi kandar! Where curries are always the anchor-point of making rice so addictive. To savour the finest, you’ve got the visit one of the pioneers who hold a legacy of dishing out mouthwatering curries. The real deal here is the chicken curry and the best selling cut is the thigh, and once it’s placed on a bed of rice with a hard boiled egg by the side, in a blink of an eye, you’ll be yearning for another plate. Good balance of spices and chicken meat that just slides-off-the-bone with the mildest touch, this is divine. 

    Tips

    Opt for mixture of curries

If eating sinful yet satisfying meals at late night is wrong, we don’t want to be right.

    For Indian food aficionados, this famous establishment gives you a good excuse to keep your kitchen clean. Upon walking in, you’ll be in open-mouthed wonder looking at the vibrant spread of dishes and curries. Among the most ordered curry is their chicken version which is served piping hot. Either having in a puddle by the side or ladled onto your rice and naan bread, it’s up to you as both are equally vouched by the patrons.  Creamy, savoury and spicy – you can’t ask for anything better and be sure of adding some tandoori grubs as a part of your meal for optimal gratification. 

    Tips

    Get in early during weekends
