Food Porn: deer murtabak

Deer murtabak at Al-Tasneem

Murtabak are stuffed pancakes filled with minced meat, garlic, egg and onion. Common at Indian Muslim stalls and restaurants in Malaysia as well as in Thailand, where they are known as mataba and form part of the country’s southern cuisine, they are usually made with chicken, beef or lamb. But the Singaporeans like to mix things up, and in the island city site you’ll find this delicious deer murtabak. With enormous depth of flavour and a taste that falls somewhere between lamb and beef, the deer variety is more expensive than other meats but worth every penny. Find this one ($10-$20 depending on size) at Al-Tasneem restaurant, facing the Sultan mosque on North Bridge Road, just a stone’s throw from Arab Street and Haji Lane.
