The authentic dishes here are lovingly created with loads of spices, fresh ingredients and unique cooking methods. Dishes such as the bhuna gosht (lamb masala); murg tikka lababdar (chicken tikka in a creamy sauce); and murg dumpukht biryani (chicken cooked with spiced rice) are all perfectly yummy, and the traditional setting and ambiance will make you feel like you're at a banquet from A Thousand and One Arabian Nights. Also at 19 East Coast Rd., 6344-9163.
Despite many Indian restaurants along Race Course Road, KASHMIR is certainly one we would recommend. Try the Kehva tea, flavored with cardamom and saffron. We also ordered the sabz gosht—a dish of lamb cubes with spinach—fish masala, Kashmiri pulao and mixed raita. Both the fish and lamb were covered in the most delicious and fragrant gravy. The sabt gosht was covered in green mush and didn’t look very appetizing, but we finished up all the gravy even though we were already rather full. For dessert, we got the kheer—semolina pudding with cardamom—and pistachios and phirni, creamy rice flour pudding—a treat that you will not easily find elsewhere. The homely interior made us feel like we were at a banquet from A Thousand And One Arabian Nights. The food here will impress even the most jaded Singaporean foodies.
