5. Beef Brisket Curry at Mui Garden

One mouthful of the curry at Mui Garden, and you’ll understand why everyone raves about it so much. The beef brisket ($12.50) is a favourite, with pieces of tender meat in a thick, creamy sauce. Go for the Hainanese rice, cooked in chicken broth and fat for added flavour, as the perfect side. A warm order of roti is another crowd favourite for lapping up extra sauce.
