Glad to have another Thai eatery within relatively close proximity to my hood, and one that serves absolutely lip-smacking, delicious food, too.

That Fried Egg Salad, in particular, doesn't sound like much, but is really one of the show-stealers here. Laced with ultra-crispy edges, the golden-brown fried egg pads a heap of crunchy vegetables tossed in dressing that aptly combines the four flavour pinnacles of Thai cuisine – sweet, sour, spicy and salty.


One of my go-to spots for a satisfying lunch in the work hood, specifically for these nuggets of pork garnished with golden-brown crumbs of crispy garlic. So worth the food coma after.


They don't toss the bah mee here in as much lard as they do in Bangkok, so they're not as shiok. But those tom yum noodles and the soup that comes with the boat noodles are pretty legit.


This plate of basil pork doesn't come cheap, but it's super saucy, fragrant with lots of Thai basil, and packs a hefty spicy punch – exactly how I like it.


Dinner over the weekend featuring some smashing, albeit slightly overpriced, Thai food. The Pad Thai was on point – slightly chewy noodles leaning on the sweeter side in true streets-of-Bangkok style, entangling fresh, crunchy prawns and pillows of firm tofu. The Iberico pork is also insanely delicious, crusted with peppercorns and cooked to a perfect, tender medium; pair with the accompanying caramelly fish sauce dip for optimum enjoyment.


Because @dawn.musk wanted mooks. The tom yum marinade here is da bomb. 👍👍 .


The flavour of this phad Thai is remarkably close to what you'll get on the streets of Bangkok, although I think most Singaporeans, like myself, would find it markedly sweeter than most localised renditions of this popular noodle dish.

It comes tossed with rings of squid, two prawns, a smattering of veggies, and chopped nuts, sugar, and chilli flakes to mix in at will.


Insane spread for three girls, you think? Not when we have the voracious appetites of hormonal, prepubescent teenage boys. We cleared out pretty much almost everything! And then proceeded to have dessert.

Out of everything pictured/listed here, I'd say that the must-haves are the otah, the tom yum soup, Thai green curry fried rice, and the crispy egg floss omelette.

Nice little starter of fried minced pork enveloped in chewy rice noodles and garnished with garlic and nuts. Think it could have been even better with a slightly stronger hit of chilli, though!


One of my favourite places for Thai food, although prices are on the high end. The meaty soft-shell crab doused in yellow curry is redolent with spices and an must-have together with plain white rice. Also nice for sharing among two or three pax is the platter of hors d'oeuvre, which includes tender chicken skewers, pomelo salad, Thai fishcake and succulent pandan chicken (they were out of this and so replaced it with shrimp paste chicken during this particular visit). Skip the green curry if you must.


No clear tom yum soup here, but that's okay. You don't need options when you have one reliable go-to.

Three of my favourites from last night's @burpple Tastemakers eat-up, yes, even the uber-fragrant grains of rice tinged a pretty pastel green – couldn't resist walloping almost the entire mound of it drowned in spoonfuls of that rich duck red curry.

I thought the duck in the curry was too tough and overcooked, but the morsels of minced pork flavoured with a heavy hand of basil and chillies fulfilled my meaty dreams.
