Crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. The size is nice and makes for a good bite. It was a hit with the kids.

The prata was well done. Nice level of crispy and the accompanying curry went well. Good place for prata

Never had an Appam before until several years ago when we had made Tekka Centre a lunch destination due to it being near the work ‘hood — ever since then, we have been pretty much on a lookout for the dish all around the island. Thankfully, it does seem that Appam is slowly getting popularised of the late — the most recent opening of a Appam specialty store that is widely-known would be Mr. Appam at Maxwell Food Centre that had pretty much the hype all over social media. Hidden away in the North Food Court of Republic Polytechnic within walking distance from Woodlands North MRT Station along the Thomson-East Coast Line is yet another Appam specialty store named Appam Aunty. There is no denying on how big they are on Appam here — the menu features a wide variety of Appam ranging from classic ones such as the Plain Appam, Cheese Appam and Egg Appam, all the way to inventive ones such as those listed in the “Delights” section of the menu which includes Red Velvet & Sea Salt Caramel Appam, Avocado & Gula Melaka Appam and a Power Berries Appam — just to name a few. Then, there is also the “Local Favourites” section; think items such as Cempedak Appam, MSW Durian Appam, and Nasi Lemak Appam (yes, a savoury flavour), while there are also Kulfi Appams as well. Aside from Appam, Appam Aunty also serves up other dishes such as rice sets and Nasi Lemak sets; probably to cater to the school kids here whom may not appreciate Appam as much as we do over here.

There are really too many flavours of appam to go for here and we found ourselves going for the Mango Sticky Rice Appam since it pretty much stood out for us. We were served pretty quickly here and with good reason; the Appam is the only item that requires preparation, and the other elements for the dish are simply drenched atop. The Mango Sticky Rice Appam sees a generous drizzle of mango sauce, accompanied by a glutinous rice purée atop the Plain Appam that is used as the base here. As far as the Appam goes, we really quite liked the one here — light and crisp sides; all that with a fluffy centre that bears almost the same texture as a Kueh Bingka. It is fluffy, chewy and came with a slight tang in the middle; really went well with the sweet mango sauce that they had decided for it come with over the top. We found the glutinous sticky rice purée to be really interesting of the lot however; the purée was something almost akin to a rice pudding — there is this “rice-y” note going on amidst all the sweetness that attempts to replicate the glutinous rice usually found in the typical Mango Sticky Rice. Overall, a really inventive creation by the folks here that deserves a bit of cred.

As far as it goes, Appam specialty stores do typically carry some special flavours on their own but Appam Aunty does seem to push the limits here quite a fair bit — the flavours offered at Aunty Appam can be said as a more “hipster” offering; something which may appeal to the younger audiences in general which is pretty much probably a consideration since they are located within the food court / canteen of a campus. Some may argue about this being the start of gentrification of traditional fare, but it is possibly necessary after all in order for traditional foods to survive the test of time and remain relevant in the long run. Whatever it is though, Appam Aunty does pretty decent Appam; a rare find considering the lack of such fare within Woodlands, and is a worthy mention for its attempt to bring Appam to a wider audience. Looking forward to be back to give their savoury Appam as well as the Avocado Gula Melaka Appam a try; those items definitely piqued our interest as we were skimming through the items on their menu!

It's my first time eating at Tasvee. Read many good reviews on Google on this place.

Decided to have the curry chicken, a safe choice for any Indian food. Surely an Indian restaurant won't go wrong on their curry yes.

And the curry here is really good, it's thick, it's flavourful, and the chicken was cooked well, meat was soft and tender.

Also had their mutton and fried fish, generally, the food served here are all quite good. Definitely can try if around here.

Known as much for their homely dishes as their range of drinks, this stall serves delectable and authentic dishes.
.
Their rendition has large chunks of tender boneless chicken, marinated in yoghurt and roasted in the tandoor oven, immersed in a thick rich curry gravy of tomato and spices.
.
With bold vegetal meaty spicy sweet savoury flavour, this pairs well with beer and other drinks.

Their version has seen the base recipe change and improve over the years. This means the dish I had here recently is different from the version I had 10+ years ago in my original list.
.
It now has a thicker, more chunky texture to the curry gravy, and the use of a greater range of spices lends well to its savoury sweet salty spice flavour.
.
The boneless chicken chunks are marinated in yoghurt and tandoor roasted, then immersed and finished in the curry gravy.
.
This gives the chicken a tender chewy texture, with smoky meaty savoury sweet salty spice flavour, yum.
.
Pairs well with rice or bread, but it feels more shiok with rice.

Styled as a fast-casual eatery with hearty portions at wallet-friendly prices, although 'fast' is relative here.
.
Their version has a pronounced tomato base infused with spices, thick with vegetal sweet spice flavour, slightly more spicy compared to elsewhere.
.
The marinated and roasted boneless chicken chunks are tender with a light chew, carrying mild sweet savoury spice notes.

Probably the only vadai by far that makes me fall in love with the snack on first bite! I also finally understood why it is popular among groupbuys. On a Saturday afternoon when we dropped by, they only had the prawn vadai available and with each order, the vadai were fried instantly again. I found the vadai here not as floury as the usual ones that I have tasted. In fact, even with the relatively crispy batter exterior, the interior was fluffy and well marinated with spices. The prawn on top was sizeable, and surprisingly meaty while the green chilies were complimentary. Will be back to try the vadais with other toppings such as ikan bilis and grago!

By far the most affordable version, their rendition has a thick spicy savoury salty curry gravy.

The boneless chicken chunks are cubed to bite sized, tender with a mild chew and natural sweet savoury flavour, picking up the notes from the curry gravy.

Best paired with rice or bread.

The house signature dish at this gastropub, befitting its British English and Indian roots.
.
Characterized by ample use of spices, including garlic paste, ginger paste, powdered turmeric, salt, ghee / clarified butter, coconut cream, and sliced chili, all in a thick rich tomato-based curry.
.
The boneless chicken chunks are marinated in yoghurt, then grilled, immersed in the curry, and served. Has a tender moist texture, and picks up the lovely meaty vegetal sweet savoury spice flavours of the curry.
.
With their attention to detail in each dish, it's clear why they've attained a Michelin Bib Gourmand award.

No more North Indian Thali but this is basically the same thing. Naans were average, not very crispy. Raita was super clean, I liked it.

Clockwise from bottom left
Chickpeas had a thick gravy and well spiced

Gulab jamun is damn frigging sweet

Rice was interesting, soft and has a mild chew. Also you just need a bit of rice to go with a lot of gravy

Dark Gravy had a curious starch taste, this was very thick too

Paneer was too sweet, it's very weird

Finally the potato and tomato side had a gravy which was incredibly flavourful but somewhat runny

Overall a very full and satisfying meal because of the carbs and the thick gravies
