The average lifespan of a restaurant in Singapore is under five years, so the fact that Zam Zam has survived for over a century should tell you just how good this place is. They serve Indian-Muslim food and some of our favorite dishes are the murtabak, a chopped chicken and cheese sandwich that’s been crisped up on a grill, and the nasi briyani, a rice dish served with mutton, chicken, or beef. Sit by a window while you eat - partly because there’s barely any air conditioning, but mostly so you can look out on Masjid Sultan, the most famous mosque in the country.
