Terrific Thai Food

Terrific Thai Food

As much as we love Bangkok's food and shopping, we can't always go there as and when we please - so this list consists of places a little closer to home when you get those Tom yum cravings

Nothing but chill vibes at this place! Was a little apprehensive at first - normally I'm not a fan of combining sweet and savory food, what more a combination of warm watermelon and seafood. But this mix of sweet juicy watermelon chunks, cashew nuts, seafood fried rice and floss all went so beautifully together it really surprised me. The sweetness of the watermelon was brought out more by the cashew nuts and enhanced the taste of the fresh seafood. Every ingredient did its part and they all blended together harmoniously. Gin Khao has proved time and again that besides doing Thai classics, they can provide fusion food with their own twist. Thumbs up.

At $6, this bowl of ice cream is definitely pricier than BKK's version, but with the toppings and fresh coconut flesh, it's worth it. Everything I had there was a hit, it is possibly my new favourite restaurant. The coconut ice cream is almost as good as Chatuchak's, probably because of the fresh coconut and cashew and corn toppings. The ice cream itself was not as creamy as the one I had in Thailand though.

Stir-fried Squid with Runny Salted Egg ($14.80) - to me everything salted egg automatically tastes better, and this was done to perfection. Everyone couldn't stop going back for more servings of this, even when we were stuffed! The salted egg sauce wasn't too gelat, the perfect savory umami balance and the squid was just the right texture.

Gai Tod Had Yai ($7.80) - all the goodness of deep fried chicken without the troublesome bones! The chili was super addictive, and I can definitely see this as a bar snack. I do wish it was slightly crispier though.
