Anjappar Authentic Chenttinaad Restaurant (Singapore)

Rachel and I popped by Mustafa Centre a few weeks back to help her dad exchange some foreign currencies. It was then that we realised the stretch of shops along Syed Alwi Road, directly facing Mustafa, touting cheap CDs and other souvenirs have all been replaced by a whole row of spanking new air-conditioned restaurants serving various Indian cuisines.

This is probably a sign of the growing rich and affluence expat Indian families moving into Singapore as the Little India locale shift in their shop mix to cater to the needs of these new immigrants.

I am a fan of Indian cuisines, drawn to the aroma of funky spices, used generously. Hence we decided to try out a few of the restaurants in the stretch, one at the time.

For a starter, we chose Anjappar as it is the only one which has an international franchise in other countries like Canada, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. It has two outlets in Singapore, the other one is located at Racecourse Road.

I ordered an onion utthappam, while Rachel ordered a garlic naan and a plate of quail curry. We also ordered a mango lassi to share. The quail was a bit overcooked and tough to chew. Otherwise, the food was pretty good. We particularly liked the utthappam which was like a cross between a soft fluffy pancake and a roti prata.

Price-wise, our bill came to around $30 for two pax. Not too sure if it’s pricey as we are not familiar with the prices for Indian restaurants.
