Foodie Story – Young Lady Cooks up Modern Nasi Briyani!
It’s not often you find someone who hates Nasi Briyani. Succulent juicy meat in a flavourful curry and fluffy aromatic rice — who could say no to that? However, most stalls offer the same few types of Nasi Briyani. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Fried Chicken Briyani as much as any of you guys. But maybe there is room for innovation! Here in Circuit Road Food Center, Foodie Story is serving up both classic Nasi Briyani and modern renditions!
Foodie Story is run by Yishi, a young 27-year-old who learnt the secrets of Nasi Briyani from a seasoned hawker veteran. Yishi spent long days and weeks learning all she could, finally managing to create her own Nasi Briyani Recipe!
First up from Foodie Story is the classic Chicken Briyani ($4.50) which comes with a curry chicken drumstick, acar, a hard boiled egg, a crispy Papaddum and of course, a heaping amount of briyani rice! The rice was nice and fluffy, and adequately spiced. Thankfully, the rice did not have any whole spices remaining, which can make for a horrible surprise if accidentally bitten into. The curry chicken was tender, while the curry paired perfectly with the rice. I also had the Beef Briyani ($5.50), which comes with pieces of beef that have been stewed for hours in a curry sauce. However, I felt that the beef was slightly dry.
If you are looking for a modern take on Nasi Briyani, definitely check out the Breaded Chicken Cutlet Nasi Briyani with Thai Chilli Sauce ($5)! The chicken cutlet was well fried and crispy, while also tender due to the use of chicken thighs. The portion of chicken was also extremely generous and more than enough to fill even the hungriest of patrons.
The Thai Chilli Sauce from Foodie Story was tangy and spicy. While the sauce paired well with the Chicken Cutlet, the same cannot be said about the rice. I felt myself wishing for some curry to go with all of my Briyani rice!
The Briyani dishes at Foodie Story are interesting and innovative takes on a well-loved classic. I certainly have to commend the young hawker for coming up with such unique combinations! I’ll be back to see what else they have up their sleeves!
