The missus was working yesterday (boo! on a weekend?!) so i decided to pick her up from work and have dinner somewhere near her office.
I love the Biopolis. Its like a civilization of its own. A mini science/tech city filled with geeks. Another thing i love bout the place is how they name their buildings. If you work in Biopolis, you’d know what im talking about!
I took this picture from Helios. (haha, son of Greek Titans) Geeks!
Other building names include Centros, Genome, Matrix ; among others. Now how cool is that! “Oh, i work in the Matrix…with Neo.” Haha!
We decided to meet Mr Raj for dinner. I’m surprised restaurants at the Biopolis are open on weekends! I mean, if you work there you’d know that the Biopolis is a ghost town on weekends. I don’t mean real ghost. Its so empty, i could jay walk all day long! Some restaurants are so empty, you could see their staff gleaming away for not having to work!
Anyways, back to Raj. Raj Restaurant is a big hit with the missus’s colleagues. (hi Nava, Soundaram, Carol, Pei Fen, and <insert names i missed out here> ) So i decided to check them out. Nice place i must say, but lacking of decor. The food? Lets cut to the chase people!
Cheese Rava Dosai
No idea what Rava is (someone enlighten me please?) but its supposed to be the crispier dosai version. It looks good, and it taste so oh umm umm good. That green thing you see on the upper left, don’t ask me cos i have no idea what it is! But it tasted good! hehe
Garlic and Butter Naan
How can we not have naan. I love naans. Garlic, butter, plain, give it to me!
They were purrrrrfect! Next, some dips!
These dips are to die for. The one you see here is made out of Chickpeas. How can chickpeas taste so good! Omg! The one you can’t see back there is made out of cottage cheese. Umm, yum! Alright, desert please!
Kulfi is somewhat like a sorbet, with no fruits. Its tagged as the indian ice cream. Made out of (which i guessed from taste) milk and spices, this dessert is a whole new experience. Its kinda tangy, minty, rich and topped with finely chopped nuts. And i think i spotted a few strands of saffron. Niceeeeeeee! Saffron is not cheap ok. Good saffron can cost $xxxx and that’s for a few strands!
And lastly, we ended with the obligatory Lassi. Mango lassi. Lastly, lassi. That rhymes.
So what was the damage, you might ask. Surprisingly, this is the cheapest i’ve ever eaten in an Indian restaurant. Trust me. If you’re looking for a non-crowded (you know how crowded lil’ India is on weekends!) place that serves both North and South Indian cuisine, with great wait staffs, give Raj a try. This is not a paid review by Raj but Mr. Raj if you’re reading, i’ll be looking forward to your naans! Ok that doesn’t sound right!
This is Mr. Malique signing off, be good and be nice! Chao!
