Naughty Nuri's @ Tanjong Katong

We were at Tanjong Katong Road, and looking for snacks post dinner. Naughty Nuri's happened to be there and we went in to try their famed ribs. On normal occassions, I'd choose a martini or a beer to go with the ribs, but we were in a company of non-drinkers plus feeling a bit full from dinner.

Chose the minimalist way and ordered pork ribs and burnt squid. Was tempted by Hence to get the burnt corn but....corn could be rather filling and no one else seemed interested, so we didn't.

Naughty Nuri's Signature Pork Ribs (full rack)

The pork ribs were well marinated and flavourful. Was amazed at how cleanly and easily the meat slid off the bones. Rather effortlessly! I don't think am able to finish a full rack on my own, so a half-rack portion would suffice if I'm having this for dinner. Plus a beer. Yes, that too.

When a dish has been prefixed with the 'burnt' word, I'd be expecting something that's somewhat charred looking. The burnt squid was looking rather pale with just specks of burnt'ness. But that was because the squid was slowly braised to ensure tenderness and then charred for smokey flavour. The flavour was subtle and the dip that looked like chili paste was not spicy at all and rather, it enhances the 'fresh' taste of the dish. To add some spice to this, one could eat it with the spicy kecap manis mix that's available in bottle form on each table. Rather yummy and enjoyable.

Staff was friendly and accommodating. The place was fairly relaxed on a Friday night.

For two pax, expect to spend about $80 for ribs, shared appetiser and a drink.
