Customers of this home-grown brand and lovers of Thai food can now choose to dine at this centrally located outlet or their first outlet at Kallang Wave Mall.
Honey Butterfly Pea with Lime ($3.90). Not my first time trying it, but I love the colouration of this drink every time! It tastes a bit like agar agar to me.
Tao Khua ($9.90). Assorted boiled vegetables served with battered crisp fried prawns, shredded chicken breast, rice vermicelli, stalks of Thai kang kong and homemade sweet and spicy dressing.
Laab Gai ($8.90). Minced chicken salad tossed in fresh lime juice, chilli padi, roasted puffed rice and herbs. This is what I term as “slow heat”–the spiciness kicks in after a while.
Poa Pia Boran ($9.90). Thai spring rolls with black fungus, glass noodles, minced chicken and bamboo shoots.The preparation of this dish is not as simple as it sounds as it requires individual preparation of each ingredient before putting them together to form a dish.
