Chomp chomp has known to be very crowded during meal times. Best is to avoid peak hours. As much as the food is good, not sure if it is worth the wait for seats. Actually had to wait 40mins to eat these bbq seafood.
Verdict: worth travelling to serangoon gardens for it but maybe not the extra waiting time for seats.

Had the spaghetti with pork chop. It was average. However to students, i feel that your money is better well spent elsewhere. Food court and hawker centres offer western food that are really yummy and at a much cheaper price

Pan fried Pork Soup buns 4 pcs ($4.80) - skin a a little thick for a bao and amount of meat inside was small. However, the soup in the bao was tasty and the smell of pork not over bearing. Panfried part of the bao was also crispy
Fermented Rice Dumpling Soup Dessert ($4.50) - never had this before but this became one of my favourite chinese dessert after having it here
Wouod not recommend buying the appetiser as it had an oily after taste. Mixed black fungus ($4.50) beansprouts with beancurd ($4.50). Use that money to buy more pan fried pork buns instead!

Prawn Doughnut ($12) - Skip this as it was small and too firm
Vegetarian Green Curry ($24) - fragrant and not overly milky
Tom Yum Seabass ($20) - seabass were fresh, soup was spicy and sour with lots of ingredients
Mango Sticky Rice ($14) - was average for the price. Coconut milk was slightly salty and not sure if this was intended
Red Ruby ($12) - highly recommend this
Food was 8/10 however do note that the portions are small so he prepared to order more mains to feed more people
However, the restaurant had a queer smell. Not sure if the sewage or ventilation was a problem.

Jia Bin Bak Kut Teh ($8.80)
Braised Pig Trotter ($7.50)
You Tian ($2.50)

Prefer the clear soup with peppery broth over the malaysian style which uses soy sauce and herbal broth. Ribs were tender and pork trotter gravy was delish. However, would rate this 6/10 as i think BKT is all about personal preference.

I’m a regular at Nakhon since 6 years ago. Although the quality if food fluctuates a bit sometimes, overall still tasty. Very worth your money here as 1 portion of main will cost $6-8 and is enough to fill up your tummy.
Clear Tom yum soup is spicy and has a kick to it. My favorite is still the green curry as it is milky but full of spice as well. Great for those who cannot tolerate spicy food.

Taste: generally taste was decent. Paella ($20 for 1 person portion) had a nice umami to it. Ordered the 4 for $36 deal. Had beef burger, pineapple chicken, Grilled squid and Cerviche as well. Tapas was tasty but not amazing.
The lemon grass panna cotta was the highlight of the meal. The flavors were interesting and goes really well together.

Summary: Would love to support local businesses. However, have to say that tapas is a pricey dish for many singaporeans...

Ordered the Kurobuta pork $24.90, beef burger $16.90 and Cheese Nachos (not applicable for burpple beyond)
Have to say portion was generous for both the mains and appetiser. Beef patty did not have a weird smell and not overly dry which was great! Have to say the side salad was a little disappointing and the veggies were a little dead. Fries were crispy. Kurobuta was great too and did not have a gamey smell for pork. Sweet potato fries were tasty but had no suitable sauce to go with other than the ketchup provided. Would he better if they provide mayo and mustard as well.

Service was great but they do not provide plain water. Only mineral water.

Overall was very worth it with the 1 for 1 mains and will definitely use the app when i come back here again.
