Butter chicken and garlic naan from Sim Lim Square food court


I was recommended to try this Indian and Pakistani place in the food court at the basement of Sim Lim Square (B1-15). I was initially a little skeptical about them but went ahead anyway. It turned out to be not too bad after all. The naan was kneaded into shape and added with the bits of garlic to be baked in the that clay/stone oven after you had made your order. All that would be done in front of you as you waited for them to process your order. So, that much of can be seen is truly freshly made. The other thing that I didn't quite expect was that the butter chicken was actually served on a foil sheet on a hotplate which had it sizzling all the way back to the table. This tasted a little thinner than I expected, but had a good level of spice. Which would have been better if the gravy were more creamy. The chicken portions was quite miserable as well and didn't taste as richly smoky like it does at Jaggi's.

One thing for sure as many of you are probably aware already, the coffee at the food court is horrendous.
