Jessi Singh opens Mrs Singh, dedicated to fusion Indian food

Eat, Melbourne / 19 February 2020

Not at all what you expect her to be.

There’s a new lady on the block, and she’s not about to let her Daughter In Law have all the fun. Chef-Restaurateur and pioneer, Jessi Singh (co-owner of Daughter In Law and Don’t Tell Aunty) has opened up a restaurant in dedicated to another leading lady in his life: Mrs Singh. Opening earlier this month, Mrs Singh is promising to be a fusion Indian eatery and vibrant drinks bar, set amongst iconic Flinders Lane.

The interior at Mrs Singh is reminiscent of a gatsby mingling hall. Marbled blue floors, gold accents and bright sherbert orange panelling grace the 65 seater dining room, with velvet bar and table seatings. An ode to Singh’s Indian heritage, you can expect 70s Bollywood classics projected on the walls, with party tunes all around to form a feel-good atmosphere.

As soon as you step into Mrs Singh, you’ll be greeted by a roaming champagne trolley, ready to serve you drinks. Sommerlier Dheeraj Bhatia (Est.) has also created a 300 strong wine list with supporting beer and cocktail selections. Wine is also available for takeaway if you need something for home.

The food menu is just as impressive as the drinks. Make sure to order kulcha, thin flatbread cooked fresh on a hot grill and perfectly served with a side of curry and rice. Here at Mrs Singh, their kulcha is topped with taleggio and truffle oil, or blue cheese and caramelised onion. Whatever your choice may be, you’ll be drooling before it even hits the table! You can anticipate small share plates with punchy Asian flavours and that signature Jessi Singh flair. With the new wine bar format, Mrs Singh will include an elevated Indian dining experience with tasting menu options for extended sittings. There will also be $25 express style thali’s for power lunches, consisting of rice, naan bread, a selection of classic curries and sides.

“Come have a bite, a meal or just a drink. Bring the party or spectate. Mrs Singh is playful and curious, eager to explore what will become of this day, in this space, with the particular group that will end up here,” says Singh.
