I love Indian cuisine for its complex and extensive use of spices and herbs, making every dish so flavorful and aromatic. Where’s your favorite place to have Indian food? I would love to recommend Spice Sutra Restaurant & Cafe at Upper Thomson Road to all my readers out there. The vast and exotic array of North Indian cuisine priced affordably gives you the wonderful opportunity to be spoilt for choice. Also, do note that all ingredients used are halal certified.
I love Papadum! Some say that it’s the Indian equivalent of keropok. What do you think?
The Samosa Chaat ($5.90) was an interesting mix of crisp and soggy. Comprising of chick peas, boiled potatoes, yogurt, ketchup, chopped onions, lime squeeze and spicy garnish, this dish was excellent.
We took quite a while to decide on the grilled meats before getting the staff on hand for recommendations. Of course, the best way to sample a bit of everything is to try the Mix Grill Hotplate ($31.90) which is an assortment of the chef’s selection of meats, marinated with oriental spices and grilled. My favorite was the tandoori chicken which was remarkably tender and juicy. I have tried tandoori chicken from various places and they were all too tough.
The Prawn Biryani ($15.90) was very aromatic, and eating it was oh-so-gratifying. I personally would prefer more spices in the rice for a slightly more fiery taste.
Essentially boneless pieces of tandoor chicken cooked with puree of tomatoes, cream and mild spices, I was expecting a more flavorful dish of Butter Chicken ($15.90). The gravy was sweet and creamy, which was interesting for my taste buds but a little mild and did not quite pack a punch.
The Mutton Masala ($15.90) on the other hand, was extremely well executed and was deliciously fork tender. I enjoyed this dish the most.
So as not to let the gravy from the butter chicken and mutton masala go to waste, we ordered the Butter Naan ($3.50) and Garlic Naan ($3.90). These freshly made Indian bread roasted in traditional charcoal tandoor are fluffy and chewy, soaking up every bit of the mouthwatering gravy.
Lastly, we tried Gajjar Haluwa ($4.90), a traditional Punjabi dish made with carrots and milk. This dessert smelled great and its taste wasn’t cloyingly sweet. A must try!
Our overall experience at Spice Sutra was definitely a gastronomical one. Will be taking my parents there! Thank you Spice Sutra for the invitation.
