Since 1908 - need we say more?

What we say: 4 stars

This legendary Kampong Glam restaurant has been serving tasty Malay food since 1908 — well before Singapore was an independent country!

Though they make a mean briyani, Zam Zam's signature dish is murtabak, an artery-clogging concoction of fried dough stuffed with mutton, diced onion and egg served with a bowl of curry gravy. The restaurant is busy all hours of the day and it's worth waiting for a table — neighbouring resturants serve similar fare but can't compare to the original. There's an air-con dining area upstairs but you'll miss the show of cooks frying roti and pouring teh tarik if you head up there.
