Where I Used my CDC Vouchers #1: Hanifa’s Briyani Specialist at Tekka

Trying Hanifa’s Briyani at Tekka for the first time

I wanted to save on some food costs so tried using the CDC vouchers (given to Singaporeans for enduring the COVID situation) yesterday and I was successful. I decided to make this a series as the vouchers can be used till the year end and we might get more next year. After checking out the Merchant list which is extremely vast, I had planned to go to either our usual fave Yakader and had Hanifa in mind as a backup option. In the end the queue at Yakader was way too long so approached Hanifa’s instead. Both the stalls are pretty close together.

I first asked if they excepted the vouchers and the young man at the stall said yes. As I got 2 chicken briyanis (opting for no hard boiled egg) I was charged S$10. I wonder if the older man there gave a discount for which I am very thankful. The usual price is S$5.50 per plate. I clicked on the vouchers and held up my phone so that the stall owner could scan the QR code with his phone. It now indicates that I have made a redemption and that I have S$90 worth of vouchers left. It was pretty thrilling to save some money.

Now on to the review. I kinda liked it as it was spicier, but my partner who can cook, thought Yakader’s version was far superior with the chicken being more tender and generally tastier. I must admit the rice at Yakader is more well coated and fluffier. My partner preferred the thalcha at Yakader too. I think because it has more dhal in it?
