Chicken tikka masala is one of those richly flavoured Indian comfort foods that’s not too overly spicy.
I actually ate at Ah Hoe Mee Pok quite a long time ago, before he got featured on ieatishootipost and in the newspapers, so from what I’ve heard the additional fame (as if he wasn’t famous enough) has caused some changes to his dishes.
Itek tim is one of my favourite soups, and it’s basically a Chinese style soup made with pickled mustard greens boiled with duck meat at its core.
One of my favourite Malay/Indonesian dishes: beef rendang!
Tenshin is probably most well-known as the place to go if you want really high-quality Japanese tempura, nothing like the crude stuff we see all the time at most of the Japanese restaurants in Singapore.
I became a fan of Vietnamese food through Nam Nam but I’ve also heard quite a number of people say their dishes have been toned down for the Singaporean tastebuds, e.g. less herbs and spices.
