Murtabak Zam Zam on North Bridge road is reputed to serve the best murtabak in Singapore. After a disappointing dinner at Famous Islamic Restaurant just up the road, I bought a mutton murtabak (S$5) from Zam Zam for supper later that night.
It could be the travelling that affected the taste of Singapore’s best murtabak – I was too full to consume it there and then – but this murtabak wasn’t great. At all. The mutton filling was dry and very one-note.
And the watery curry gravy didn’t do it any further justice. Overall, I was disappointed but not as sorely disappointed as I was with the nasi briyani earlier. Maybe I should go there again and eat the mutton murtabak on the spot.
But then … there are many other places I want to try in Singapore. So we’ll see!
Food: 5/10 (halal)
Verdict: Average murtabak. But it’s halal certified.
