Then Singkong is now the Sriracha, a ritzy Pan-Asian restaurant in UB City, Bangalore. Curated by Chef Vikas Seth, be ready to be swamped by their extensive food. Sriracha is contemporary, why? It is a mix of both, traditional and modern, dishes are designed on lines of yin and yang, and hand-picked ingredients go into them.
We’d like to say, you needn’t fret if you liked the dim sums and Khao Suey at Singkong, because Sriracha only gets better. Very seldom do you get to see such enticing dishes, let alone taste them.
For those who wish to go beyond Chinese, Indian and Mughalai and test the waters of cuisines of Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Thailand cuisines think no more and head to this all-inclusive classy restaurant. We dare say, they have quite a unique lot on their menu.
For starters, we had the famed Som Tam – Green Papaya Salad. A famous Thai salad which was made live before us. They pound green papaya, chillies, green beans, cherry tomatoes, and serve it with grapefruit and Malta which gives it a tangy and sweet flavour. We also tasted Banana Blossom Salad which is a mix of bean sprouts, crispy onions, spiced peanuts dressed with lemon chilli and served in a banana blossom.
For the mains, we tasted Oriental Pot Roasted Chicken which is truly a feast because of its star ingredients: oriental spices and lime juice. Next up was Scallop and Shrimp Dumplings, a real treat for seafood lovers. The tiny purse-shaped dumplings filled with fresh scallop and shrimp were neatly pleated. It also has a tangy and spicy hint owing to its tobiko, soy chilli coriander sauce and topping.
Their Char Siu Roasted Chicken Dumplings is a new wave altogether. Together BBQ Chicken and pork Char Siu tasted even better. It was savoury and sweet but just as needed. Served with Spiced Ginger Dipping Sauce, it makes it juicy and delicious.
The Togarashi Dusted Sriracha Prawns was worth a thumbs up. Spicy prawns are served with sweet Baked Chicken Puff and drizzled with soy oyster sauce. Coffee Rubbed Pork Riblets was smoky and deeply flavourful with a hint of dark sweetness.
Later, their signature dish, Wild Mushroom Purple Dumplings arrived looking like a piece of artwork. These bite-size dumplings which can never be enough. Served with chilli soy, makes it heavenly. We also tasted the Salmon Roll, a combination of Salmon, avocado and cucumber was great and fit to be repeated.
Chicken Khow Suey was a filling and a delicious meal. Their twist to the khow suey was refreshing. It was served with coconut milk, lemongrass, coriander, soft noodles and fresh veggies.
The desserts are truly gratifying, highlighting the penchant for coconut and sesame. We loved the Sumatra Dark Chocolate Mousse brooding over a heap of whipped coconut cream.
Coming to the ambiance, it is colourful. You can see mural paintings on the wall. It kind of looks festive, after all, it is Asian-inspired.
All in all, it is surely worth a visit. Do check them out today!
