Drinks

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.

Appetisers

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.

Main Course

Massaman Chicken Curry with Crispy Roti ($13.90). Persian-style curry with a whole chicken thigh served with roti prata slices. This dish has a long history and dates back to the 18th century. The spices are made into a blend and after letting it rest overnight, the curry is simmered with the chicken for 20 minutes.

Fresh Prawn Omelette ($8.90). Fluffy egg omelette with prawns and holy basil. Very oily dish, however it has resulted in a frothy omelette that is oh-so-good.

Desserts

Red Ruby with Coconut Cream ($5.90). This is made in-house with rooibos root for its distinctive colour and unlike many red rubies in Singapore, this has a perfect flour to water chestnut ratio.

Thai Chendol Cold ($6.90). You could have this as a drink if you wanted. The homemade lod chong is softer than the ones in local chendols and this comes with jackfruit and red ruby.
