Bean Sprouts with Salted Fish ($8) (Part 3 of 3) Bean sprouts were very saucy and surprisingly flavourful. They remained their crunchy texture, with bits of spring onion, sliced red chili and silver fish throughout.

Basil Chicken with Kai Lan ($8++) (Part 2 of 3) (Unfortunately, they missed out this order :/) As the entire basil leaves are used, there's a strong bitter earthy flavour permeating throughout the dish which may not appeal to everyone. The dish I had had parts which were spicier than others. I liked that the kai lan retained a nice crunch and that the bits of chicken were surprisingly tender.

Half Chicken ($16++) (Part 1 of 3) I honestly feel that this tastes like a typical kampong chicken with a slight gamey taste permeating throughout the meat. Not the most tender nor moist but its still delicious, not as oily as your typical Singapore Hainanese chicken. I like how it was made boneless, decent portion for 2 pax.

[Chalerm Thai] - Phad Thai King ($14). I like that it wasn't too highly flavoured with sauces and seasonings like some others, and the rice noodles were springy but pliable. .

New Centrally Located Thai Eatery That‘s Worth Checking Out When The Craving Hits H O S T E D Located in the Arcade adjacent to the Capitol Kempinski Hotel are a few new restaurants serving different types of cuisine. Managed by the hotel itself, they range from German to Italian to Spanish and Thai. “Chalerm Thai” is the one my friend Zhenia and I had lunch at earlier this week. We began the meal with three appetisers that were spot-on in whetting our appetites as they did not lack in punchiness. While Zhenia went gaga over the Deep-fried Lemongrass Chicken Wings ($15++ for 6 pcs), I was most drawn to the tender, smoky Grilled Marinated Pork Neck with Spicy Lime Sauce (18++). The both of us also did a fine job of demolishing the Prawn Salad ($15++), hands-down, the spiciest of these three dishes. I had requested for a clear version of Chalerm's Tom Yum Goong ($15++) because I had heard from another friend Maurice it’s very good. The Chef-in-charge who’s Thai, kindly obliged and I was very pleased because Maurice was right - theirs is intensely fragrant and packs a strong kick of hotness despite looking rather “innocent”. We thought the Phat Thai Kung ($14++) was decent enough, ticking all the required boxes but the item that made us sit up and gawk was the signature Stirfried Soft Shell Crab with Yellow Curry ($20++). Its flamboyantly vibrant colours belied a less-than-fiery taste, so no tastebuds were singed. Its surprising low-level spiciness allowed us to better appreciate the nuances in the thick curry sauce as well. For dessert, we had the Thai Red Ruby ($8++) and everyone's forever favourite, the Mango with Sticky Rice ($10++). The former, in my opinion, is a notch above many others because their version comes with a scoop of fabulous coconut ice-cream that’s made in-house at the Capitol Kempinski. Undoubtedly more substantial, the latter which is served with warm glutinous rice, is big enough to be shared between two or even three depending on the size of each person’s appetite (or greed 😁).
Phat Thai Kung from Chalerm Thai, new at Arcade @ Capitol Kempinski. It is one of the classics at this restaurant and I’ll share my thoughts about it in my Weets Eats column on Thursday. Anyway, about the phat thai kung - well, it’s very pretty.

Good pasta, poor service, sweaty lunch We got their seafood squid ink pasta and their bacon carbonara. The pasta had good texture and was cooked to a perfect al-dente. The squid ink pasta came with fresh mussels, prawns and squid and was pretty good. The carbonara was quite perfect with the creamy pasta base and savoury bacon bits. Food wise, not a bad pasta fix, however, be prepared to... SWEAT! The restaurant is barely air-conditioned. For $15++ a pasta and $20++ a main, this is pretty unbearable. Come only if you have Burpple Beyond, if not, it is not worth it. The service was also disappointing, with the waitress serving us seeming aloof and disinterested in life in general. Overall, its a one and done for us.
Chicken Masala And Saag Chicken ($12 Each) Bar bar black sheep is more of a drinking place that’s tucked in Cluny Court next to Botanic Gardens mrt, but I came here for lunch and it was not bad. It’s nothing super outstanding, but it’s quite a value for money meal when you use #burpplebeyond. I preferred the saag chicken, which is a spinach-based gravy, because it tasted somewhat “cleaner” and less meaty. The masala was a lot more full-bodied and had more spices. It’s great to pair with some naans to mop all that gravy up!
Really Hard Ribeye... How can this be even medium rare.. even if using app for 1 for 1 promo, it still doesn't justify the poor quality, the beef is fully well done to the max, even the western food stall below my HDB block cooks a better medium rare ribeye.
