Singapore’s Kampong Gelam neighbourhood is known for being a halal food hotspot where you can find halal restaurants and cafes serving up all kinds of cuisines! ?  One restaurant where you can find a fusion of Indian and Arabic cuisines is Hindarab, conveniently located opposite the Village Hotel Bugis just a 5-minute walk from Masjid Sultan.

Located on the ground floor of a renovated shophouse, the ambience in the eatery is light and modern, making it perfect for all types of occasions from a laid back lunch to a special dinner out. For something simple yet unforgettable, order the Mutton Chops and Parata. It’s a classic combination - but Hindarab’s take on it will make your mouth water. ?  Their masala spice mixes are procured directly from the source, for only the most aromatic flavours in every bite.

For a meal that will leave you full and satisfied, try the Lamb Shank Biryani. Basmati rice is flavoured with a rich blend of spices, and paired with soft and tender lamb shank. The lamb meat falls right off the bones, but the fluffiness of the rice keeps it from feeling too heavy. Perfect for a special occasion or a weekend outing with your family!

And of course, don’t forget their Malabar Dum Biryani! Originating in Kerala with Arabic roots, this is Hindarab’s take on a dish you might usually find at Muslim weddings. Small-grain Jeera rice is flavoured with cumin and coriander for a subtle but distinct flavour, and is prepared in the ‘Dum’ method so that the entire dish is infused with a fragrant and mouth-watering aroma. ?  This biryani has even become the biryani of choice for some of Hindarab’s regular customers!
