Usman Restaurant, Singapore (Food rating: 4/5)

If you think you have tried spicy food, think again.

I recommend you to try the food at Usman Restaurant.

Having tried the "spicy" food with four ticks in the United States, I always left the restaurant utterly disappointed. The so-called spicy food was not spicy enough that would make you perspire and lips numb.

My friend and I explored Little India on weekend and we found this Indian Muslim restaurant enclave in the Serangoon neighbourhood. Located adjacent to Desker Road, we were attracted by the beautiful red curry and naan. Naan is an Indian flatbread made from white flour, yogurt and yeast culture. Typically, ghee or butter was brushed onto the flatbread.

Unable to resist temptation, we ordered three dishes, excluding three pieces of naan, to share. Our damages were SGD14.20. The entire food experience was not only delicious but also extremely affordable. 


Priced at SGD1 each, the plain naan was crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. Unlike the Roti Prata or Roti Canai, the naan was less oily. You can even eat it on own. So, we bought three pieces to share. (Food rating: 3.5/5)


If you think Chicken Curry is spicy, try the Black Pepper Chicken Curry. Priced at SGD3.50, the black pepper in the curry caused a lingering numbing effect on your tongue and lips. When you first put the curry in your mouth, you might find it spicy. A few seconds later, you would feel that sharp numbing feeling on your tongue and lips. The chicken meat was very tender and moist. It disintegrated immediately after we put into the mouth. (Food rating: 4/5)


The Mutton Keema or minced mutton curry served with green peas. At SGD3.50, you could enjoy a delicious serving of mutton keema. You can also dip the naan into the keema. (Food rating: 4/5)


Tandoori chicken is a popular dish in South Asia, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. This dish is prepared with yogurt and spices cooked in a cylindrical clay oven. More importantly, the name of this dish is derived from the oven, Tandoor. The chicken was extremely fragrant. At SGD4.50, you could get a piece of chicken thigh, charred and tender. The meat was flavourful and unforgettable.  (Food rating: 4/5)
