Singapore food festival at Shiro

In line with the Singapore National Day celebration on the 9th of August, Shiro will be serving a specially curated menu of famous Singaporean dishes. I got a preview of the upcoming Singaporean culinary fare. 
Here's a photo tour...


Shiro is an award-winning Pan-Asian restaurant at UB City, Bangalore.  Its signature high ceilings and grand statues epitomize the essence of Shiro.


I started off with one of my old favorites, Peach ice tea...


Gado Gado Salad is a lesson in nutrition and taste...

Singaporean Laksa soup is a bowl of goodness...


Black pepper prawns are spicy little bits. The papaya salad comes handy to douse the fire...


The Singapore Sling is a gin-based cocktail. This gorgeous drink was developed sometime before 1915 by Ngiam Tong Boon, a Hainanese bartender working at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel, Singapore...


Singaporean style chicken satay served with peanut sauce...


The Cashew chicken had the smoothest texture and comfortable spice level...



The stir fried cashew vegetables along with Jasmine rice was one of my favorites of the day. The broccoli and a little hit of peanut left me feeling delightfully healthy...


Lamb Rendang was another revelation. The pieces just melt in my mouth...



Tofu in Chili Sambal is not overly spiced as the name suggests. It is a must try for its simplicity...


The noodles need no selling, they are always so comforting...


Hainanese Chicken Rice was really to my liking. The rice was fragrant and moist. The chicken was soft and tender with perfect seasoning...


Shell crackers and picks are placed on the table and I guessed the next dish and prepared myself for a fight...


 The Singapore Chili Crab is a must have. Every order of this specialty dish comes with a complimentary glass of the famous Singapore Sling (only on August 9th)...


The steam buns is a good accompaniment with the crab...


 My co-diner's claws after the wrestle with the crab...

This Singaporean culinary feast kicks off with a special dinner to celebrate the Singapore National Day on the 9th of August 2016,  hosted by Ema Trinidad, founder of ExpatLife India. 

This specially curated Singaporean a la carte menu will be available for everyone for lunch and dinner from the 9th to the 14th of August. 

They have a few vegetarian dishes as well.  
Average cost for a couple would be Rs 2,500.

  2. Wonderful, wonderful...as is the lovely
    country of Singapore. Laksa soup has long been one of my favorites...& I had several Singapore Slings st Raffles Hotel in Singapore - though gin is normally not my choice of alcohol.

    Lucky for me, San Francisco is home to several branches of Straits Singapore Cafe so I get to indulge my love of some of the dishes you so beautifully
    portrayed. Our huge SF Dungeness crab are great prepared Singapore style.

    The ambiance is serene..very nice.

    Someday, I predict you are going to be a blimp!

  13. The food in your photos looks fabulous. You really got to me with the lamb dish and the carb. Looks like way too much food to eat all at one meal, but I would not mind trying. Happy Singapore National Day.

  24. That monolithic statue in the dining room is fantastic and a little intimidating. I think I'd go right for the peach tea and prawns, excellent photos as usual.

  25. Oh my gosh! Good thing I just ate recently or I would be chomping at the bits for all of this deliciousness! Wishing I had a tall glass of that peach ice tea! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
