T. Dining by Singapore Tatler - - Indian - 33 Scotts Road, S(228226) TEL: 6836 0055 thesongofi­ndia.com

The Song of In­dia beck­ons din­ers to a gas­tro­nomic show­case of In­dia’s rich culi­nary her­itage and cui­sine. The menu is im­pres­sive and ex­ten­sive, of­fer­ing fine cuisines of both North and South In­dia. Ex­ec­u­tive chef Man­ju­nath Mu­ral’s Jour­ney Through In­dia set menu (also avail­able as a veg­e­tar­ian op­tion), is a med­ley of sev­eral à la carte dishes, such as prawn curry from the Mal­abar coast, and Hy­der­abadi bhuna lamb gosht and dumpukht chicken in potli masala from Luc­know. Each is mar­i­nated in its own dis­tinct flavour and the plat­ter comes to­gether beau­ti­fully, like a sym­phony. Served along­side fra­grant saf­fron bas­mati rice, the tan­doori bread bas­ket takes on a mod­ern spin with saf­fron sesame, truf­fle mush­room and gar­lic but­ter naan. Sweet end­ings are a must in the world of In­dian cui­sine and none are as ir­re­sistible as the re­fresh­ing Alphonso mango kulfi, one of many sub­lime desserts on the menu.

TATLER TIP

The fully stocked cel­lar boasts glob­ally sourced wine, cham­pagne and port la­bels. Wine lovers can se­lect house pours by the glass and con­nois­seurs will be de­lighted to find sweet dessert wines such as the prized 1996 Château d’yquem Sauternes in stock. Bet­ter yet, or­der the Ju­gal Bandi wine-pair­ing menu for some se­ri­ous pam­per­ing by the chef.
