Sri Veera’s Curry Restaurant – Authentic Chettinad Food in Little India
Tucked away in a row of shophouses along Hindoo Road, Sri Veera’s Curry Restaurant is a traditional Indian restaurant serving authentic Chettinad cuisine daily. We came here for supper after our Indian friend recommended us to dine here.
Named after M Veerasamy, pioneer of masala chicken and curry fish head in Singapore in the 1950s, his grandson T. Nagarajan was inspired to continue the tradition of South Indian and Tamilnadu culinary arts, hence he opened Sri Veeras Curry Restaurant.
Authenticity can definitely be found at the restaurant. No utensils were given on the table unless you request for it. Food is served on a bed of banana leaf and best consumed with clean hands for a finger-licking good experience.
Rich flavours and spices are seen in all the vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes especially Tamil curries. They use heavily on spices such as curry leaves, coriander, ginger, cumin, nutmeg etc. Apparently, the curry fish head is the signature but it was too heavy for supper. Hence we go for other traditional dishes such as Thosai and Chicken Chettinad.
Chicken Chettinad has got dominating notes of star anise and fernnel that’s rich, flavourful and creamy. It paired absolutely well with the mildly fragrant nasi briyani. I had the Dosa wrapped with potatoes and a spoonful of coconut chutney works wonders. But skip the roti prata, mine didn’t inpress.
It’s also interesting that the restaurant’s closing hour is 11.59pm. I recommend that you go early, as most items will be sold out after 10. Happy Deepavali!
