Komala's Fusion Restaurant, Syed Alwi Road


We needed to be at Mustafa so we dropped by for a late dinner at Komala's Fusion Restaurant just across the road. This branch (87 Syed Alwi Rd, tel : +65 6444 0444) of the Komala's group of restaurant actually has table service. A man can order and pay without having to go to the counter. A man does not need an order chit.

I couldn't tell what was the fusion portion of the name referring to but if I had to venture a guess, it's probably the Chindian offerings that they had. Which was strange since many Indian restaurants already have Chindian on the menu.

We had dahi puri. These were just passable in my limited experience. Certainly did not beat the ones from the neighbouring Raj or Kailash Parbat. I suppose there was much more of the yoghurt than any of the other flavours going on and maybe I prefer the yoghurt to also be more chilled.


What we liked was their paneer fried rice which was from the Chindian section of their menu. This was actually better than most of the Chinese fried rice around. The aroma from the cumin and wok, the texture from the basmati rice and bits of vegetables; it was not bad at all. Pleasantly surprised. I think it would benefit from chunkier pieces of the paneer though. If anyone's familiar enough with Komala's, their mint chutney which comes with their dosai works pretty well with the fried rice. 


Nothing (not really but...) like a really smooth chilled plastic cup of sweet rose milk to beat the heat and to wash down the food.
