Just a 5-10 minutes walk from my block, Soi Thai Kitchen’s newest outlet at 502 Jurong West is certainly a welcomed addition to the neighbourhood by offering wallet-friendly Thai cuisine - which is not easy to find in the area.

Packed till late almost daily, there are even patrons waiting before the shutters are pulled up for dinner service. But as for the food, there are some hits and misses.

Of course my choices are limited due to my low spice tolerance, but for me the meats that I tried generally fared pretty well. The Premium Fried Pork Cheek ($12) was fried to perfection - succulent on the inside with lightly crisp and crunchy edges (note that the signature item is available in limited portions).
