A mix of spicy-sour and fragrant dishes with distinct flavours

A very affordable dish for its generous portion. Also known as Pad Woon Sen, the glass noodles were stir-fried in a savoury sauce and loaded with prawns and squid with some cut chillies; giving the dish a sweet, sour and salty flavour.

The stir-fried minced beef with basil and chillies eaten with rice was tasty. Other than the sauce being a little salty, the dish was packed with flavour and the long beans added a nice crunch. A bit more spiciness and it would be even more delicious.

Minced beef is stir-fried with chopped long beans, chillies and basil, served over rice with a fried egg on top. The combination of the basil, spicy chilli and fish/soya sauce made this dish appetising with good enough heat for that numbing sensation. I like it that there was an added crunchness from the long beans in each spoonful.

A taste of Bangkok's Thai-style Hainanese chicken rice. The rice was flavourful but not as fragrant as what one can expect from Singapore-styled ones. The chicken was tender and succulent; and unlike the spicy garlicky chilli sauce we are used to, their special sauce was more tangy with chopped ginger and chilli padi. It complemented the rice well with a nice kick to it. Overall worth a try for something different.

Food is an adventure in itself. More to explore. Even more to share.
