For the perfect briyani
#01-232 Tekka Centre, 665 Buffalo Rd
So this isn't exactly a restaurant — just a stall in Tekka Centre serving one dish — but it warrants a listing all its own.
The recipe for Allaudin's famous briyani has been in the family over 40 years and the saffron, turmeric and cumin that give the rice its flavour and colour are perfectly balanced. The rice is served with your choice of spiced chicken or fish, but it's the fall-off-the-bone mutton that earns this hawker stall its long, long queue. Under S$5 a plate.
