Al-Ameen Eating House

Al-Ameen Eating House is a popular “makan” place around Bukit Timah area, near my place. It is located opposite Beauty World Centre, along the numerous coffee shops on Cheong Ching Nam Road, not far from Al-Azhar, another favourite makan place there.

This place opens 24 hours, and all the food served is halal. One of the best things about this place is its variety of food being served, from seafood, Thai food, Indian food such as roti prata, naan, masala, and varieties of fried rice, all under one roof. Although, certain menu only available on certain periods of the day. The service is friendly and efficient; with most of the staff are Indians who, surprisingly, can speak Malay.

Last month, I and my wife went there because my wife wanted to have the roti naan and masala, one of our Indian food’s favourites (see right picture). Roti naan is similar to roti prata, except that it’s oven-baked, not fried, and it comes with different flavours, such as butter, onion/garlic, cheese, or just simply plain. Roti naan is usually served with masala, mutton or chicken minced meats covered with thick curry from Indian spices, similar to Malay’s rendang curry. Previously we tried the chicken masala and chicken tikka masala, so last month we tried the mutton masala, and it’s as good as the chicken one.

I live in the upp bukit timah area too and frequent al ameem. However... The last time i ate at Al Ameen they quoted the bill not according to the menu! Just have to becareful of scam though. Now i only go there for nostalgia. Just be sure to know what youre paying for. Usually i will get garlic naan amd butter chicken. The mee goreng too, even though its forever inconsistent.
