Critically-acclaimed Tiffin Room at Raffles Hotel Singapore and fusion American smokehouse Meatsmith Little India have teamed up to present an enthralling showcase of authentic North Indian specialties and Indian-accented southern American barbecue delights at the historic Tiffin Room. This exclusive and not-to-be-missed collaboration will run for just 2 weeks from 22 April to 6 May 2021. Before you rush off to make a reservation, have a look at what's in store!
Before the first course even arrived, I was stuffing myself silly with the light and fragrant papadum which is accompanied by mint chutney, mango chutney and lemon pickle. My pick was the mango chutney which I spooned unapologetically onto each small piece of papadum that I broke off (so I don't look too greedy with a heaping portion of chutney on a big piece of papadum). Our table had multiple servings of the papadum, because no one could resist the yummy snack.
An Italian Pinot Grigio to pair with our first course
One of the dishes that I will think about for a long time to come is the immaculate Curried Granita Carabinero. Chef Kurt dressed the fresh and plump carabinero with a myriad of ingredients. It might look like a lot is going on, but all the flavours, though pronounced individually, came together seamlessly and harmoniously to accentuate the natural sweetness of the prawn — an exquisitely sweet symphony. I particularly adored the smoky curried granita which I was desperately trying to scoop up.
Torched right by the table, the Smoked Coconut and Jackfruit Jam was an interesting creation which allowed both fruits to shine. I was surprised that the creamy jackfruit jam wasn't overpowering at all. Chef Kurt's signature dessert is definitely an excellent take on the strong-tasting fruit, and the torched meringue was just the cherry on top.
In all honesty, I've never enjoyed Indian food as it is usually laden with spices and can be quite spicy. But this particular meal at Tiffin Room has made me a convert. I really loved the naan and chicken curry!!! Will seriously come back just for them.
I'll highly recommend that you give this exclusive collaboration a go because the food is really pretty impressive. And if you're a loyal fan of Tiffin Room, or Meatsmith Little India, you wouldn't want to miss this.
Note that during this promotional period, only a limited selection of the regular Tiffin Room à la carte menu will be available
