Guns at the ready. This ship is ready to fire.
It’s hard to find a good tulang these days. By this, we mean none of that sticky red tulang merah that too often goes overboard with the spiciness.
But we struck gold when we stumbled upon Muslim-owned Tash Tish Tosh one day, while taking a Saucy video of halal eateries around Haji Lane.
Check out said video here!
According to Tash Tish Tosh’ owner Wahid Spyke Allapitchay, the gravy here is made over two days, from a secret mix of spices and herbs. He shares that the team takes care of even small details like slicing the dried chilies, cutting in a vertical direction so the fiery seeds don’t get into the sauce. The gravy is fragrant with a mildly-spicy kick, thanks to sugar added to temper the heat.
The Saucy Touch:
Turns out it wasn’t just us who fell in love with TTT’s tulang gravy — when we invited Dr Leslie Tay from IEatIShootIPost to try it, he felt the same way too.
So much so that we decided to work together and come up with a tulang dish that many Singaporeans would keep coming back for was born.
Together with Dr Leslie Tay, we came up with a fun idea on the spot at that very first tasting — a Gunship Tulang, with two pieces of mutton bones with marrow loaded onto a pizza boat filled with gravy.
From there, it took another week to refine the dish: think brushing garlic butter on the dough, adding cubes of feta cheese to cut through the richness of the sauce, and juicy chunks of beef in the tulang gravy for texture.
We’re now happy to present the final version that gets the thumbs-up from all three of us: Battleship Tulang!
This massive creation is good to share between two to three friends, though we’ll recommend ordering an extra side of Tash Toolang Stew if you go in a group of three or more — it’s only fair that each one gets a bone to pick.
