Allauddin’s Briyani

Allauddin’s Briyani
Blk 665, Buffalo Road, #01-297
Tekka Market Food Centre
Opening Hours: 10am to 6pm daily

This is the most famous nasi briyani stall in Tekka Market. The grains are quite dry, but not as loose (stirring and pre-fluffing in the pot helps).

The nasi (rice) has a tad more flavour (some may call it saltier) and the mutton is grainy and quite soft, but a little dry and gamey.

The queue at peak hours is at least 20 minutes but it moves fast as the server is precise and methodic.

He slaps some nasi on a styrofoam plate, lowers a piece of mutton onto it, covers it with more nasi, pushes you a bowl of thick but not-too-spicy dulcha curry (as how most of his Chinese customers like it) and you’re down by $3.50.

I’m not a briyani person but this is one of the best briyani I’ve ever tasted. It’s a little bit dry, so pour the curry over the nasi for a better taste.
