Here’s another ‘farewell’ dinner for our brother. We met up with more cousins and relatives to eat, chat and say good bye.
Hmm I just realised that in UK, there’s lots and lots of Indian food, and it might be better too! LOL…
Anyway, we went to Samy’s because we have not been here for years. The last time we were here, we had to buy coupons as entrance fee or something. That was before the Dempsey area became a hip place for dining.
This is our table. That’s the youngest on our table. Our niece and she was so excited to eat from a banana leave placed on the table. 🙂
They were serving a choice of Nasi Biryani or plain white rice.
I had the Biryani . Eating it plain is already so nice. You can see the spices in the rice!
We also had naan. We had all the 5 different kinds that they served. Garlic Naan, Butter Naan, Cheese Naan, Plain Naan and Kashmiri Naan. I like Kashmiri because it’s sweet and fruity.
This is the Mysore Mutton. They said it’s one of the specialties. It sure is spicy!
The mutton lovers amongst us liked it, not for me. I don’t like mutton. (because of the strong smell) :-p
The Curry Squid.
This is the Masala Chicken. Think it’s quite all right.
Who can resist tiny bites of fried chicken? This is the Chicken Tikka.
The Curry Fish Head. We were quite shocked was so big. When aunt ordered it, she was told 1 fish head feeds 2-3 persons. So she ordered 2 of it because there was 10 of us. When it came, it was 2 big heads! LOL… Well, we finished it.
It was quite hearty meal. We might have over ordered. A few of the above came in double servings, so we had to ‘pack it away’ for some dishes. Nearly $200 for the above plus drinks.
The place is quite packed too. Natural ventilation in the old colonial style building / barracks. So its quite a nice atmosphere.
