Taste of Thailand

Another one of the few places that I’ve been eating since young, this place sure has its history. From its original location at pre-renovated Sembawang Shopping Centre, it has moved to its current spot at the industrial estate nearby. First and foremost, one should not jump at the notion of getting authentic Thai food at this restaurant. The speciality dishes are influenced by the culture but the others are your typical Zi Char fare. But what sets this restaurant apart from your next door Zi Char stall are the quality of the food and the price. 5 girls, 5 dishes + 1 soup for less than 50 bucks. Good food does not necessarily come with a high cost.

Taste of ThailandPineapple Fried Rice: Served steaming hot, the rice, sprinkled with cubes of pineapple, slices of preserved sausages, shreds of omelette and topped with pork floss, is flavourful and definitely a force to be reckoned with. It scores very well with the kids and the carbo-loading men.

Taste of ThailandFried Fish: This fish may look all bones and skinny to you but do not judge too soon. Fried using a strong and powerful fire, the fish is crispy on the outside and yet, meaty and delectable within. Not to forget, have the fish with some of the chilli that they serve along. Like most, your taste buds will be in for a treat.

Taste of ThailandFried Cuttlefish: For years, this dish will never fail to be on my family’s table at the restaurant, but we still never solve the mystery that ensues this dish. Addictive and delicious at the same time, the cuttlefish is definitely well-marinated and fried. A must-try! P.S. They go well with the chilli sauce too.

Taste of ThailandSweet and Sour Pork: Something about their wok and fire-power makes their food extraordinarily tasty. A notch above the other versions I’ve tried, the sauce is of the suitable taste, neither too sweet nor too sour. Most importantly, the meat is of the right biting texture. Crispy on the outside and juicy within.

An important tip to take note is that the restaurant gets extremely crowded during the weekends. A queue starts snaking even before the sun sets for dinner time. Rumor has it that the quality of the food deteriorates when they have to be rushed during busy periods. So I suggest to try out this restaurant during the weekdays.
