Night out with good friends

We met our friends for dinner at Sri Anandan last night. Though it is a small restaurant in Upper Dickson Road and usually not crowded, we think the food there is much better than many over-rated restaurants in Little India.

One of our must-haves is the platter of mixed thosai. These are tender and so yummy when eaten hot with sauces provided.

The chicken curry last night was so well cooked, the chicken remained tender and soft despite hours of cooking. It's the kind that literally melts in your mouth.

This is chappati. I'm not very good at telling the naan apart from thosai and all their crepe like thingy. I just eat them when they're presented before me. They all taste good with curry.

Our friends ordered a sweet and spicy fish dish (below). We had our favourite melt-in-the-mouth mutton too and several other dishes.

Ah, here's a photo of our friends at the restaurant. Don't you think they make a cute couple? The walls are painted in my favourite lime green colour.

After dinner, we walked to Khulfi Bar, a cafe specializing in north Indian ice creams. Kulfi, the Indian version of ice cream, is a rich and luscious dessert made from fresh fat milk which is boiled until it reduces to a thick cream and mixed with exotic spices, fruits and nuts.

The shop also sells handicrafts and ornaments from India. Here's a photo of us. We can't seem to get serious in front of the camera. Grow up, CH!

Maybe this is better...

We ordered two different kulfi creations to share. This is hazelnut flavoured kulfi topped with chocolate sauce, pistachios, almonds and silver foil. It's really good.

Here's the other creation topped with basil seeds, banana, nuts, jelly and rose syrup. This combination is rather sweet.
To wash all that sweetness down, we ordered their special teas. Our friends had the masala tea while we ordered the mango tea. The teas were served in traditional brass mugs crafted with Indian artistry. The mango tea is like hot mango juice with a hint of tea in it. It's comforting when drank hot and became refreshing when it turned cold.

Well, it was a lovely night out with good friends. We shall meet again in April.

Blur Ting said...

Fry - We ordered many dishes - mutton, chicken, fish, fried porata (not sure what that was but it was nice), fried dish (tasted alot like fried rice with egg and chicken, also very nice, chappati and the mixed thosai. Plus drinks for everyone. Less than $50. Just over $10 per head.

Oh wow the thosai and chappati looks drool-worthy. Another place for me to go to in Singapore. :)

Yes, cheep! More importantly, the food is fresh and yummy.

I'm really weak at appreciating Indian food. I would love to try the Indian ice-cream though, the tea too!! :):):)

I love chapati and chicken curry... die-die must go n try given the prices u cited, even tho I hate the locality and the parking...

Anonymous said...

Blur, can pse give exact number in Upper Dickson Rd as there isn't a restaurant called Sri Anandan; only Anandan Villas... maybe a new restaurant?

Amel said...

GREAT photos!!! That thosai looks like "serabi" in Indonesia, but the topping is different he he...:-D

Blur Ting said...

Auntie Lucia - I'll be dropping by the restaurant to pick up some food for our friend's Bollywood party.I'll get a namecard to ensure the name is correct and get the address and contact number.

The parking's a nightmare there. I parked at The Verge (where Sheng Siong is) and took a short walk to the restaurant.
