SILK ROAD RESTAU­RANT

T. Dining by Singapore Tatler - - Indian -

Amara Sin­ga­pore, Level 2,

165 Tan­jong Pa­gar Road, S(088539) TEL: 6227 3848/6879 2655 There’s a cer­tain tran­quil­lity to a meal at Silk Road, whether it’s thanks to the bam­boo-lined en­try­way to the calm am­bi­ence in­side—with dimmed light­ing, muted fab­ric tones, wood floors and lat­tice par­ti­tions, the views of trees through the plate-glass win­dows vis­i­ble from a few ta­bles—or the pri­vate din­ing room with silkuphol­stered chairs. The ex­pan­sive menu has a dizzy­ing range of dishes, with enough choice to sate any diner, and with tex­tures and flavours faith­fully ex­e­cuted. The spe­cial­i­ties jus­tify their rep­u­ta­tion, with the sliced pork beau­ti­fully pre­sented in a rack; the pork is odour­less, its soft­ness con­trast­ing with the crunchy cu­cum­ber. The Bei­jing duck is ten­der, while the mapo tofu has a clean, sharp heat courtesy of gen­er­ous doses of chilli padi. The wine list only has one house red and one white avail­able by the glass (both from Chile). Ser­vice is warm and brisk.
