Appum and Pappadum from a Myaree Mamak

How we love small, unassuming cafes with amazing food! Off Leach Highway in Myaree is a place called Spice Express, which sells Singaporean Indian food. We were there on Saturday afternoon, around 1.15pm and the place was overflowing with customers.
The reason was more than clear at first bite. The chicken biryani was mild but delicious, and came with raita, dhal and a pappadum.

The Mee Siam, which is rice vermicelli with a sweet and sour gravy with prawns, egg and dried bean curd was a perfect combination of flavours- the sweetness of prawns, the tang of tamarind and a hint of heat from chillies in the gravy. 

Dessert came in the form of creamy, coconutty pancakes called Appum, served with sugar and coconut cream. Of course, we drank teh tarik (tea with condensed milk "pulled" to cool the tea and form delicious foam on top).

We also took away Spice Express' specialty dish, the Indian rojak, described on the menu as 'fried fritters with peanut sauce' and included boiled egg encased in fried flour, fishballs, sliced cucumber and onions.

We savoured each bite of every dish.
