Featuring Gin Khao (One Raffles Place)

Watermelon Fried Rice is not a particularly common Thai dish. But it's apparently a signature dish of Gin Khao. I was a bit disappointed the fried rice wasn't served in a watermelon bowl like all the pictures I've seen but nevermind, we'll move on. 🤷🏻‍♀️ This tastes reminiscent of Chinese fried rice with the slight but not prominent wok hei taste. The fried rice is fried with two shrimps, carrots, cabbage, and egg. Three tiny watermelon balls are then buried in it. And then it's garnished with some cashew nuts and chicken floss. The watermelon is a refreshing touch to fried rice that can tend to be a bit oily. But honestly I'm not impressed. This is basically Yangzhou fried rice with a 0% effort upgrade by tossing in watermelons and garnishing it with some cashews and chicken floss. And there's only three measly balls of watermelon that really isn't enough for this whole plate of fried rice. This was pretty disappointing as it seems that other previous iterations of this dish at other outlets came with more ingredients like squid, fried bean curd skin, and also much more watermelon. The 50% Eatigo discount is a good deal but I would probably go for other dishes that are better value.

Ordered this Tom Kha Gai since I've never tried it before and wow. The soup is made up of a rich milky base from the coconut milk, but the sourness typical of Thai cuisine quickly cuts through it and makes it so addictive. I was a bit hesitant on the first mouth, but the taste quickly grew on me. It also has a lot of ingredients in it like chicken (tasted like pork though), oyster mushrooms and tomatoes. Really worth it with 50% off on eatigo.
