One of the best fish head curry dish in Singapore
Walk along the Little India and you will definitely be spoil for choice when deciding to feast on Indian Food. Most of the eateries serve more or else the same thing from South Indian to North Indian dishes.
But the famous dish that we often hear about associated with the Indian food is the ever famous fish head curry and i can vow that Sakunthala restaurant has one of the best fish head curry dish among many in Singapore.
Served piping hot on a big bowl with its fish head covered in spicy aromatic curry, it is the perfect therapy for that hungry stomach craving for something spicy and full of flavor. The fish is soft and you can eat it right to the bone. The curry flavor is like a symphony when it hits your mouth and you can taste a perfect balance of sweet yet spicy and aromatic all in one taste.
Share it with a group of friends and have it over a plate of rice and your meal is definitely complete. Enjoy!
a must-have whenever I am at Serangoon area
Specializing in Indian food, you know where to go if you are craving something more than the prata shop below your house can offer. The food here is great! Although it's oily, it's something worth wasting your calories for. I like the murtabak sold there and my friend loves the meals. The meals come in mutton, fish or chicken. You can order a mutton meal to expect to be served a big platter on a banana leaf in front of you. The cost? $10 only!!! It's really huge. The murtabak is huge as well. The chewy dough is generously stuffed with well-marinated meat and spices. I normally ask for it without parsley but the waiter always seem to forget. Service can definitely be improved here.
The curry is fragrant and packs a punch! Spiciness level is just right for someone who does not take too well to spiciness. I enjoy dipping pappadum crackers into the curries. I am not that adventurous with drinks so I always stay safe by ordering iced horlicks or milo, my friend loves the sweet lassi from there! Comments are that it is very rich and thick. The atmosphere is alright, it can get very noisy at times. Coupled with the singing and dancing from the music videos played on the TV, I sometime wished that the TV was switched off. But if you come slightly later, the noise level will be reduced. Did I mention that the place does not charge GST and Service tax? That's like extra icing on the sweet cake.
Spicy indian food!
Sakuntala’s would be a place to go when you’re craving some spicy Indian food. Situated along Race Course road (a walk from Farrer Park MRT Station), Sakuntala’s offers both South and North Indian food.
My usual dishes when I have Indian food are Paneer Makhani (cottage cheese) and Bhindi Masala (ladies finger). Sakuntala’s is also famous for naan. They offer a variety of naan from butter to cheese to garlic. Butter naan costs $3 for 4 slices. The naan tastes very good with Paneer Makhani or any other gravy you chose to order.
Also, for meat you have a variety from mutton to chicken to fish. For mutton, you can try mutton keema (minced mutton) or pepper mutton or mutton gravy. Popular chicken dishes are chicken 65 (fried chicken) or chicken tikka. For fish, the most popular would be fish head curry which non-indians also love.
Apart from north, south and vegetarian menu, Sakuntala’s boast Chinese fusion menu. I’ve yet to try their menu out but they have dishes like sweet sour fish, fried rice, mee goreng. Clearly Sakuntala’s is keeping into mind, the non-indians who might not be used to such spicy Indian food.
Sakunatala’s also has catering option if you’re looking to cater Indian food for any birthday function etc you may host.
