If you love gourmet Indian dishes, Kashmir has plenty to offer. Following its success at Race Course Road, Kashmir’s husband-and-wife team Rohit and Shweta Razdan decided to bring their exquisite North Indian, Kashmiri and Moghul dishes to the folks in the East—the East Coast outlet is also bigger, seating up to 100, compared to Race Course’s 60. “We’ve had many Indian families who come from the East … and moving here is also part of our gradual plan to expand to other areas like Bukit Timah in the near future,” the couple shares. Everything in the menu is fantastic, but special mention must go to the gushtaba (minced lamb that takes 90 minutes to pound, and cooked in yummy yoghurt curry)—one of Kashmir’s signatures. All of Rohit’s wonderfully considered dishes like the tandoori prawns, the juicy and addictive kabargah (ribs of lamb boiled in milk and fried) and the beautiful palak paneer (cottage cheese cooked with spinach) are still present, on top of specially-created Chinese dishes like lemon chicken and crispy Peking lamb just for the folks in the East. And on weekdays, for just $10 nett, foodies can get their fix on all-you-can-eat fish, chicken, vegetables, starters, naan, soups and rice during lunch hour—now that’s a steal!
Looks like your Amazon shopping dreams will have to be put on hold.
More live concerts, a bunch of food-centric festivals and a massive block party to look forward to this month.
Don’t forget to bring tissues.
