Good Food

I order Chicken Briyani for SGD 6.5. Beef Briyani for SGD 6.5. Great taste but for me it's a big portion. You can buy it for 2/3 people. Martabak is so delicious. Crunchy, and I want it more :9

Doorman at hotel suggested this rough and ready cafe, if you like spicy and fairly basic decor, this is for you! It was full of characters!

Staying in Singapore and looking for somewhere which was completely different we chose an authentic Malay restaurant. Opposite the Mosque so easy to find Zam Zam is a dry restaurant (no alcohol) full of locals who know a good deal when they se it. Plastic tables and chairs reminded me of the old Balti Houses in Sparkbrook, Birmingham 25 years... More

This stall is near to my office. I asked my colleague of good indian food during lunch time, he is quick to recommend zam zam. Murtabak is the highlight for this restaurant and pleasantly taste good. They do give a generous portion of food. The price are reasonable and worthwhile. I would recommend it if you like murtabak.

It's one of the several hawker style Indian food places in Kampong Glam, also claims to be the oldest. Generous portions of the briyani and deer murtabak. Price can be considered cheap for Singapore ($30 total bill for two people)

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighborhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly colored fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Center and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
