I thought to myself:
"What if it's too spicy?"
"What if it's icky?"
"What if it's too much?"
However, my sister and brother both loved it and since I trust their taste, I decided to give it a go.
I went there and was able to try out at least 5 dishes. The first one was a mango salad.
I loved this because the mango was really sweet. It's a simple dish but one that Filipinos will love because rarely can you find a Pinoy who does not like mango.
The next one that I had was the Roti Canai. Roti canai, also known as roti cane or roti parotta, is an Indian-influenced flatbread dish found in several countries in Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia, and Singapore.
It is usually served with dal or other types of curry, but can also be cooked in a range of sweet or savory variations made with a variety of ingredients such as sardines, meat, egg, or cheese.
I super loved the Roti Canai. It was really tasty and I swear I could have eaten it the whole day and not get sick and tired of it.
Chicken kebabs cooked in a Gilaf which means a cover. Chicken mince is mixed with an array of aromatic spice, nuts, and a tang of lime along with kewra water. Baked to perfection, this mouth-watering kebabs are served with mint chutney.
I really loved this dish. It felt like giniling or minced meat but wrapped a la shanghai style. It's perfect when paired with bread or rice.
The Chicken Dhal Saag (Chicken curry with spinach) is one of the delicious North Indian traditional dishes. It is an amazing combination of chicken and spinach. When chicken and spinach cooked together with onion, garlic, and tomatoes it makes an awesome main meal dish. It provides protein and vegetables into one dish.
This was the one dish I wanted to cry about because I wanted more and more of it. I was really surprised at how good this was because honestly, it did not look appealing but the taste is just mouth watering and I can't believe I'm saying this but I could have eaten the entire dish all by myself.
For the final dish, I was able to try the Gulab Jamun. Gulab Jamun is a milk-solid-based sweet from the Indian subcontinent, popular in India, Nepal (where it is known as gulab jamun), Pakistan, the Maldives (where it is known as gulaabujaanu), and Bangladesh (where it is known as golap jam), as well as Myanmar. It is also common in Mauritius, Fiji, the Malay Peninsula, South Africa, and the Caribbean countries of Trinidad and Tobago, where it is called Rasgulla, Guyana, and Suriname. It is made mainly from milk solids, traditionally from Khoya, which is milk reduced to the consistency of a soft dough. Modern recipes call for dried/powdered milk instead of Khoya. It is often garnished with dried nuts such as almonds to enhance flavor.
I didn't love it but I also didn't hate it. It was different but something worth trying.
Lassi is a popular traditional dahi (yogurt)-based drink that originated in the Indian subcontinent. Lassi is a blend of yoghurt, water, spices and sometimes fruit. Namkeen (salty) lassi is similar to doogh, while sweet and mango lassis are like milkshakes. Bhang lassi is infused with the drug cannabis in the form of bhang. Chaas is a similar drink of a thinner consistency.
I had the mango lassi and I loved it. I tried the classic one (hated it) and the salty one (didn't hate it but don't love it either.) Overall, my experience with RICH was a good one. I wished I was able to try more of their dishes and more of the classic ones but that's for next time.
RICH is located at 5345 General Luna, Makati, 1208 Metro Manila.
