As authentic as it looks - served right in a pineapple with tender chicken chunks and pineapple slices within. Every grain was light, fluffy. I love the generous portion of pork floss that came with the pineapple rice. It rekindled the lost love (& craving!) for pork floss. ‘Definitely one of the best dishes here.

Oh, and it’s part of the daily set lunch menu @ $10.90++, comes with a dessert! Ours was coconut ice cream that day! 😋

This does not look as delicious, grand, nor instagrammable as compared to the pineapple fried rice counterpart but the pad Thai was actually what I returned a 2nd time for! (I had the beef pad thai on my first visit and had really loved it!). I conclude the beef pad Thai tasted better - there’s additional ‘sauce/gravy’ from the stir-fried beef that accentuated the flavours. Prawns were fresh and boiing-boiinngg but as a prawn pad thai, it wasn’t “wow”! I’ll return again, but no longer for the pad thai anymore! 🍍 fried rice stole my tastebuds in this second visit 😋

Incredibly awesome pad thai! The portion of beef strips were pretty generous - juicy and tender (so thankful it wasnt overcooked despite being pretty thinly sliced!) I love the assortment of sides - fried onions, raw onions, chili padi, peanuts which accompanied the pad thai! Carbs-to-protein ratio was close to 1-1, cos the lil' pile is not just cards but well mixed with pretty generous amount of tofu (protein right!!)

Decent Thai green curry but “not the best”- feedback from the boyf who has a more refined tongue and expectations for Thai food. My inexperienced tongue finds it pretty okay! Only gripe would be the chicken - while the meat was pretty tender, it came with a layer of significantly thick skin that kinda turned me off when I tried to peel the chicken skin off the meat!

Really spicy chilli flakes - add sparingly if you’re not a taker of hot spicy food stuff! Pad Thai was well done, with pretty smooth, silky noodles added with a generous portion of beansprouts, greens and some peanuts. Loved the peanuts which added some sorta crunch to the bite

Incredibly juicy and tender beef strips (had expected it to be dry and tough cos that’s exactly how it looks like). Thankfully, it exceeded expectations ! The dip was incredibly appetite-whetting and was a good complement to the 🐄 Got this at a steal with Burpple 1-1 (yay!)

Can’t quite exactly the exact name for this dish but it’s definitely on Burpple 1-1 main. A bargain for the pretty good mix of seafood! However, nothing much to shout about and wouldn’t order it, if not for the 1-1!

It’s a pasta! Hence not available for burpple 1-1 main! No regrets ordering this tho. A unique twist to the typical bad Thai with pretty fair servings of beef strips and generous truffle oil! A lil’ too oily (perhaps due to the truffle oil) but otherwise an above-average dish in overall. Go easy on the chilli flakes - really 🌶 spicy and kinda masks the truffle goodness !

My chubby cheeks speak of my love in uncovering new bites & savouring ‘em all!
