Rumor has it that a Mediacorp artiste ventured out of acting and opened a restaurant in 2011. Yes indeed, Porn’s Sexy Thai Food is founded by none other than the Thai-Chinese actor, Pornsak Prajakwit. Since my trip to Bangkok last year, I’ve been an ardent fan of authentic Thai food, especially the green curry. So not only am I on a quest to satisfy my insatiable cravings, I wanted to find out whether Porn’s is just a popularity restaurant.
Lemongrass Juice: For someone who is trying lemongrass juice for the first time, I found it mildly sweet and yet refreshing. This beverage choice would sure to whet your appetite for the flavourful meal.
Seafood Phad Thai: What’s Thai food without Phad Thai? A common food staple in Thai cuisine, Porn’s Seafood Phad Thai might not blow minds, but it is definitely comfort for the tummy.Chicken Green Curry: I will never forget my first encounter with this dish. Our first night in Bangkok, adults had to settle some baggage matters and we the kids get to order in room service for dinner. I decided to give green curry a try and that first spoonful got me mesmerised. From then on, green curry became my next “phad thai”. Fortunately, the green curry at Porn’s was not disappointing at all. Instead, it is rich, smooth, creamy and full of flavour that excites my palates. In addition, the chicken and brinjal cubes have absorbed the essence of the gravy and are extremely delectable on its own. A must try I would say.
Pandan Chicken: Another common face you can find in the menu of a Thai Restaurant. Boneless chicken meat is marinated, rolled or wrapped in pandan leaves and then fried to a nice and golden brown colour. I didn’t have enough of this dish. The chicken meat was well-seasoned, tasty and fried to perfection.
I love how Pornsak did a word play with his name to create the name of this Thai Restaurant. With such a witty name and delicious food to hold, this restaurant does not need its celebrity status to be successful. I definitely recommend Porn’s and would return again.
