Masala Tandoor - Fabulous Briyani from Former Cook of Omar Khayyam
My new favourite briyani stall is just under my nose! Hidden in the corner of a Marine Drive kopitiam is Masala Tandoor, which serves an astonishing array of Northern Indian dishes. I really appreciate that the rice is fluffy, richly spiced and yet doesn't feel greasy!
The owner Rashid was from Omar Khayyam (are you old enough to remember this restaurant?). Do you think he channels Omar Sharif too? OK, maybe not.
He's got a tandoor oven here, where he whips out great tandoori items and naans. Go find him at Block 81, Marine Parade Central (facing Marine Drive), #01-654.
