My husband and I headed to Sembawang Shopping Centre for some late night shopping and was scouting the area for a supper fix when we came across D’Rubinah at this corner coffeeshop along a row of shophouses on Sembawang Road. It looked pretty busy and the fragrance of prata and briyani in the air was super enticing.
I highly recommend the papadum crisp that was fried to perfection. Light and not greasy to the touch. The way to eat papadum with a briyani is to crack it into small bits and mix with the rice. The mutton was tender (no gamey smell at all – perfect!) and the gravy was so yummy – the spice, the curry and chilli powder/paste were all done nicely. The basmati rice grains remained separate, definitely not soggy and was full of spices fragrance. And of course the tangy achar was very appetizing as well.
If you happen to be in the North or living in the North, you know where to go when you’re hungry in the middle of the night. Good news is, this place opens 24-hour, 24/7.
