Another entry that has long been overdue thanks to a studying schedule went bonkers. After our structural exams worth 40% last Friday, we were suddenly in the mood the go to the city to let ourselves loose again. Nothing wild really. Just hoping for some shopping time and perhaps a good meal. Right after exam I got myself a change of clothes and we were off to Harbour Town for some shopping.
Shades.. liking them big. Meet Vil and my housemate Xin Ling. Oh and I so cannot wait to get more car back! :(!!
Shopping in Harbour Town was a fail attempt for me. Did not see anything interesting and shopping at Nike has begin to suck quite bad lately! :(! We were there till 7 before we left for dinner. Oh gosh. the traffic was horrible! Took us more than half an hour to move like err? 2km? @@! But when we got to Mela’s for dinner, our appetite was godly and the pain of the traffic was long forgotten. Mela is located along William St. Northbridge next to Sparrow Indonesian Restaurant.
William’s staple food here was the Byriani and it was pretty good to most of us with the exception of my sister ahah. I liked it quite a fair bit and Xin Ling was a dying person at the end of the meal because the Byriani was a tad too spicy for her tolerance. Another thing about the Byriani is its price. At $12.50 and a choice of either lamb or chicken, its definitely a steal.
Om nom nom nom. Watch out for the green chilli. These little guys taste like jalapenos but they sting like Habanero. Xin Ling -----> X_X … Oh and to be honest, I would do without the ginger bits on top of my rice. Tastes like CRAP!!
My sister and I at the restaurant :):)!
Henry and Xin Ling at Mela’s. Henry is William’s brother!
Ahhh I have come to a conclusion that the food at Mela’s is better suited to my taste buds compared to places like Maya Masala or Cinnamon at the Park and sort. Even though my sister did not like the Byriani, she ordered something else called Goat Masala which went down very well with her stomach. She was pleasantly surprised! A place to revisit for an Indian meal next time.
