Top 10 Best Biryani in Singapore

This popular South-Asian cuisine has been fancied by many, including myself. The yellow rice, as many may call it, is one of the most popular dishes in our region. Known as Biryani, or Briyani in today’s context, is made with Indian Spices, Rice, Meat, Vegetables and Eggs. Originated from India, this is the most sought-after amongst so many Indian delicacies today. If you’re in for this exotic dish (I wouldn’t call it exotic as it is my personal favourite), let us go on a food hunt to find out the cream of the crop by Tropika Club. We will take you through aggregated rankings or “ranking of rankings” compared from the following sources to further ascertain the final rankings. This is further refined using the TripAdvisor rankings to decide between the position in case there is a tie. Read on to find out where are the Top 10 Best Biryani in Singapore.

2. Bismillah Biryani

Introduction: Bismillah Biryani is a four-time winner of Michelin Bib Gourmand, an honourable award that designates the restaurant that serves quality food at good value. What makes their biryani different is that they use combination ovens, which feature both convection and steaming cooking methods. This makes their rice very aromatic, fluffy, and moist.

Offerings: A definite must-try if you were to patronise the stall – the legendary Chicken Dum Biryani priced at SGD 8.50. It is made up of marinated chicken with basmati rice, boiled egg, and raita. Unlike regular curry-drenched biryani, this is served with raita as the yogurt-based sauce is lighter and helps with digestion. The fork-tender and moist chicken meat goes extremely well with the aromatic rice and raita. The marinated meat is cooked together with the rice – spiced up with saffron and chopped cashew nuts to increase the savoury of it.

3. Islamic Restaurant

Introduction: Kicking off with the grand-daddy of the list – this venerable establishment is nearly 100 years old! Islamic Restaurant is a shoo-in on the lists of biryani lovers all over Singapore. In its heyday during the ’70s, the nasi briyani served at this quaint shophouse restaurant was said to be a hit with dignitaries, ministers and businessmen alike. Today, a generation later, its age-old recipes still stand the test of time. In fact, so popular is the briyani here that there’s even a dedicated hotline!

Offerings: What else can you be looking at on the menu when the best is here to stay – Nasi Briyani. The rice is soft and well cooked, and the mutton is so juicy! Cooked till tender yet preserving the moist and juice in it, it can only be done with high quality lamb. The chicken is well-seasoned, the curry isn’t spicy and even offer a large chunk of potato to go with it! Eaten altogether, you will be brought to another level – one you would never forget.
