Stopped by Singapura for dinner the other week and was pleasantly surprised!  Located in the Murray Hill / Gramercy area, this spot was perfect for a low-key Malaysian and SE Asian meal.

The space is longer than it is wide, with booths on one side and tables with flowery lights above on the other side.  I liked the little touches Singapura added, such as the lion-esque medallions on the chairs and abacuses on the side of the booths.

Small touches I liked...
When perusing the menu, it took all my willpower to resist the call of my usual noodle and curry dishes.  At the encouragement of my dining compadre, we tried (almost) all new things this meal!

For our starters, we went with the Nonya Calamari and the Cauliflower Manchurian.  The Nonya Calamari was freshly made and tasty, but nothing out of the ordinary.  The Cauliflower Manchurian, however, was spectacular!  It was hot and crispy on the outside, coated with this tangy marinade, and sprinkled with cilantro.  I couldn't believe this was cauliflower!  A definite must try and such a unique dish.

Nonya Calamari - tasty but nothing out of the ordinary
Cauliflower Machurian - not to be missed!!

Bite into this bad boy and its amazing to think this is vegetable!
For our entrees, we went with the Sambal Fish and the Beef Semur.  We were also served a big bowl of rice to go with our meal (yay more than enough rice to go around!).  Both dishes were extremely flavorful and portions were generous.  Also loved that there were lots of veggies that came with each dish!

I had a great dinner here catching up with friends and enjoying the food.  The atmosphere was perfect for a casual dinner and the food hit the spot.  I'm excited to come back and try more dishes!
