Singapore - Malay Fine Dining at Mamanda, Sultan Gate

  • 2

Sumptious restaurant located in the heart of Kampong Glam, Singapore's Arab-Malay quarter, in the shadow of the Sultan Mosque.

What we had:
- Terung Bestari: spicy-sour purple aubergines, with a distinct tomatoey, garlicky flavor, further enhanced with chopped coriander leaves.
- Ayam Rendang: chicken, cooked in a thickened dry-ish curry preparation, full of flavors from the use of fresh lemongrass, galangal, fresh coriander and spices. Best dish this evening.
- Ikan Merah Masak Assam Pedas: red snapper fillets, cooked with a spicy-tamarind flavored sauce.
- Sambal Telur: Hard-boiled eggs, prepared a la minute - smothered in a tasty, chilli paste.
- Turmeric-flavored rice.

It's a halal restaurant, so no alcohol is served.

  1. Is it expensive? Many fine dining Malay restaurants have come and gone in Singapore before like Aziza's, Sukmaindra and Tepak Sireh.

    1. Quite reasonably priced - S$65 for two persons, including drinks.
