Sri Kamala Vilas Restaurant, Buffalo Road


This was a good recommendation by a friend (thanks Gabriea!). Despite the fact that I'm often around the vicinity of Little India these recent times, I haven't heard of or seen Sri Kamala Vilas (Blk 662 Buffalo Road, #01-16, tel: 6291 1164) until today. But I guess with the little corners around the blocks, many locations are easily overlooked. This was Indian coffee shop at the foot of the housing block just beside Tekka Market.


Their briyani was pretty damn good. The portions of the fragrant rice was huge and the meats were rather tender for both the chicken and the mutton variety. In fact, I thought the mutton was exceptionally good. Tender pieces of flavourful sheep drenched in an also compelling nutty curry. This pairing was definitely lethal. I noticed that the chicken briyani had the meat plopped on top of the mountain of rice while the mutton was served in a separate dish. The only disappointment was the masala tea which was overwhelming with the taste star anise. The brew tasted rather diluted as well. I'm definitely coming back again someday to try something else.

I love this place! Teh masala, paper dosai and the masala chicken rocks!
