Briyani 47 used to have a few outlets around Singapore, but they have streamlined into just one main outlet located at St. George’s Road. As of 15 June 2022, they have become Halal-certified, launched their islandwide delivery service, and started their “#spoonme” concept!
If you’re a nasi briyani fan like me, you would know that dabao-ing this dish is a messy affair. It’s wrapped in a cardboard-coloured paper, oil seeping through, and curry gets packed separately— troublesome, am I right?
Briyani 47 aims to address this issue by launching their new three-compartment bento packaging which provides a hassle-free way of eating. The meats for the nasi briyani are cut into bite-sized portions and are placed together with the rice, while the achar and gravy that contains two quail eggs and potato are separated into the other two compartments.
With the launch of their #spoonme concept, only a spoon is needed to enjoy their briyani without the need to cut anything, making it an easy affair.
Briyani 47 has five types of briyani available— Chicken Briyani (S$9.90), Mutton Briyani (S$11.90), Fried Chicken Briyani (S$10.90), Tofu Briyani (S$8.90 for vegetarians) and Fish Briyani (S$10.90).
I opted to dine-in at the kopitiam as it was a relatively cooling day after the morning drizzle. I decided to try their Tofu Briyani as I wanted something different other than the usual mutton or chicken variety. The briyani came in a biodegradable box with a cute banana leaf at the bottom.
The most important element in nasi briyani to me is the rice. Briyani 47’s was super fluffy and was perfumed with the herbs and ghee that were used to cook it. According to the owner, it takes an average of one to two hours to produce the rice— this explains why the nasi was so yummy!
The achar, which is homemade, tastes like an exact replica of what my Peranakan grandma would make every Chinese New Year. The tofu was soft and managed to soak up all the flavours of the gravy that it was cooked in. It matched well with the fried shallots, rice and achar. Briyani 47’s nasi briyani really hits the spot— I’ve not had a good briyani in ages.
Although the prices here aren’t exactly the cheapest, the quality and quantity of their Nasi Briyani justifies the price in my opinion. The next time I crave for briyani, Briyani 47 would be my number one choice for sure!
