For a restaurant that prides themselves and calls themselves the best Indian restaurant in Singapore in their own website speaks volumes about the different Indian cuisines Arunachala Bhavan has to offer. The moment you glance at their menu, you would understand their boldness to make such a claim. Their menu is filled with all kinds of exotic foods that you can never find in other Indian Restaurants in Singapore.
Arunachala Bhavan prides themselves to be the best Indian Restaurant in Singapore, and we understand why due to their extensive menu of exotic food
Arunachala Bhavan has a menu that offers a myriad of great options from North and South Indian cuisines, to different Indian Chinese cuisines. They even have a menu for starters and soup. We tried the Mutton Kola Urundai (S$12) and loved it! It’s a dish consisting of mutton balls that’s deep fried. The balls are crispy on the outside, and moist on the inside. Upon taking our first bite, we were confident that it’s an exciting indication for the other food we’ve ordered to come.
The restaurant offers various seafoods and a list of Indian-Chinese food that you can never find anywhere else in Singapore
In their menu is a list of peculiar Indian-Chinese cuisines. One of their most notable dish is the Indian-Styled Chili Crab (S$12.50). Unlike most chili crabs, spice-fearing chili crab goers can rest easy when ordering the dish in Arunachala Bhavan. The crab is stir-fried in a sweet and savory tomato and chilli based sauce that’s not very spicy. Aside from the chili crab, you can order other Indian-Chinese cuisines like Szechaun Noodles (S$8 for the vegetarian option) that tastes as legit as vanilla Szechuan Noodles.
Look at how delicious their special Prawn Masala looks. It’s definitely a guaranteed chef recommended dish that you would love!
We also ordered various seafood dishes that had us place in the list of must-try, must-order dishes the next time we visit Arunachala Bhavan again. Their Fish Head curry (S$24) is one that is so delectable and memorable at first sight, you’d be craving for a second round once you’re done with the curry bowl. The bowl of curry does not just come with a whole fish head that makes the dish complete; it also comes together with ladies finger and brinjals that are really fresh.
To accompany the fish we’ve ordered, the chef recommended the Prawn Masala (S$11.50). The Prawn Masala consists of stir-fried prawns cooked in their very own special Arunachala Bhavan masala. Just looking at the sauce glisten under the lighting of the restaurant sent our cravings skyrocketing.
Their Chicken KheemaDosa is surprisingly filling
ArunachalaBhavan has a long list of South Indian foods in their inventory. The Chicken KheemaDosa (S$8) is one that proved itself to be a worthy meal to grant you a full, satisfied belly. The Dosa is made of smashed and spiced up boneless chicken layered on a pan cooked pancake (the dosa.). The dish comes together with coconut curry and a choice of fish or chicken curry. It’s a dish that you should try too.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Arunachala Bhavan. It’s a restaurant that boldly walks the talk as one with an extensive menu. The restaurant is definitely a contender to be one of the best Indian restaurants in Singapore.
You can find Arunachala Bhavan at 40 Race Course Road, S(218556).
