Ex-Footballer Rafi Ali & Local Musicians Run Halal Kopitiam With Fab Lamb Biryani
Look out for a long-lost nasi padang stall here too.
What do musicians do when they’re not playing music? We found the answer at Ali Nachia Eating House when we dropped by recently for our biryani fix.
Inside the inconspicuous corner coffee shop at Tanjong Pagar, Shah and Faizal from popular local cover band SuperSonic were slinging saucers of kaya toast and soft-boiled eggs. Across the table, their elder brother, former national footballer and The Vibes drummer Rafi Ali, was taking orders for steaming platters of biryani. And at a neighbouring stall, Rostam aka keyboardist Tom Ross from Shagies had just pulled a frothy cup of teh tarik.
