Rayyan’s Waroeng Upnormal

Rayyan’s Waroeng Upnormal has gone off the reservation even if only partially; like many dogged fusion food hucksters the popular Amoy Street Food Centre-based penyet stall (by former SIA lead steward Nornizam 'Nizam' Bin Amin) isn't above a temerarious, possibly unintentional heretical enmeshing of culinary lores, in this case japanizing time-honoured Indo gastronomics. Hence multifarious Balinese donburis, tempura-spliced mie gorengs vying for attention amid your usual orthodox smashed fried chicken platters. Then again, cultural appropriation or not, who gives two hoots as long as the shit's good?

Rayyan’s Waroeng Upnormal opens daily from 9.30am-2.30pm except Saturdays and Sundays.

Trivia: Rayyan’s previously featured in Michelin Guide Singapore's "Top 5 Spots For Ayam Penyet If You're Feeling Peckish".

What knocked our socks off:

The Balinese Gyudon slayed it - a fervid, bacchanalian affair that satisfactorily galvanized palates with sriracha-esque overtones whilst registering spiffing bovine tenderness and wheedling an underlying creamy, oniony fluff. The Tempura Prawn Bami Goreng wasn't too shabby either, in large part thanks to the coquettish but effective hobnobbing of limber, unmistakably cumin-kissed maggie tresses with crackly battered, clean-tasting ebi - crispy ass fried lengkuas sprinkled atop no doubt further adding welcome textural depth.

Balinese Gyudon ($6.50) And Tempura Prawn Bami Goreng ($7)
