A Vindaloo From Punjab Da Dhaba

Mit Vindaloo (is that supposed to be Meat Vindaloo?)

Here is another post-drinking vindaloo from a random shop along Boat Quay (46 Boat Quay, 6538-3092). Honestly, I couldn't clearly identify many characteristics of this stuff in my sleep-deprived, stressed-out, and subsequently beer-unwound state, but it was satisfyingly spicy enough that I wolfed this down like someone who hadn't eaten in days (which to some degree was true, seeing that I was so busy with work that I didn't even have time to eat dinner tonight).

Perhaps more interesting was this long list of terms and conditions placed in the upper right hand corner of the menu here. Alongside the list of curries and such lay all of these rules such as how one can not ask for a refund after he has placed an order and how one must wait for their food (or something like that...as best as I can remember, anyway). It was so ridiculously long that it seriously seemed like a binding contract that one needed to sign before being able to order.

Did these guys have so many problems with unruly customers in the past that they felt the need to put this right at the top of the menu? Well, it's not like it affected the food, but it was so in-your-face that we spent five minutes reading the decree first before even looking at what dishes were available here.

I stumbled across your website as I will be moving to Singapore in the next couple as part of a job transfer. Currently, I am in Arizona. Instead of searching for minor details, i.e. apartment, tax info, etc., I figured I should research the most important aspect...food. I commend you on your efforts. Being a United 1K member myself, I always plan vacations and even business trips on occassion around food. If you get a chance, drop me a line at dchu1975@gmail.com, and maybe we can compare notes. Thanks.
