Hwkr - Gaja by Sashi

Sashi Chelia is the winner of MasterChef 2018 and he takes the place of Diana Chan at HWKR. My husband is a big fan of him and he's been craving Indian food ever since. So when we got the news that he is in HWKR, it is a natural action for him to rush over.

Bang Bang 'Red Chicken' (Mum's Ayam Masak Merah) - slow braised chicken in a spicy red tomato sauce, kaffir lime leaves, coriander, coconut rice, achar ($15). I love this dish so much because it's super rich, punch in your face sauce. I could eat this for days. The meat just simply melts in your mouth and you can mixed the sauce with rice and eat it just like that, it would be still delicious. It's spicy though, watch out.

I do think HWKR price is slowly rising up and the portions is getting smaller and smaller making it more and more on casual dining price range rather than day to day food which what hawker really all about. I do like Sashi food better than Diana cause it's still hold the strong flavour and Sashi said the only dish that he tone's down to suit local taste bud is the rendang.
