Spicy Thai - Thai Cafe (Revisit)

[Media Invite]


We were back to Spicy Thai Thai Cafe the third time. No kid you. The food there are really good and value for money, so much so that I had to bring my Australia-Born-Chinese (ABC) friends for Christmas lunch when they were here in Singapore.


Together with my ABC friends at Spicy Thai for Christmas Lunch.
We have 12 adults and 8 children (children were in separate table)!

2 weeks ago I also visited Spicy Thai, to taste some of the new dishes they have introduced. So the dishes for Christmas lunch yesterday were those we have tried before during our first and second visit, together with some other dishes I think my friends might like.

These were what we had for Christmas Lunch:


Dishes selected from first visit:
(clockwise from top left) Lala Beehoon, Thai Style Pork Porridge, Deep Fried Kang Kong
with Thai Sauce, Dill Pattie Omelette and BBQ Chicken Wings (not in photo college)



Dishes selected from second visit:

(from left) Jade Noodles, Kaeng Som Cha Om, Stir Fry Baby Sweet Potatoe Leaves

Others dishes in the menu but not in the photos include:
For adults ~ Spicy Thai BBQ Squid and Stir Fry Basil Beef
For children ~ Mushroom Tempura, Deep Fried Mini Garlic Chicken and Prawn Cakes

We received tonnes of praises from our friends from Australia! So glad that the dishes in Spicy Thai are palatable. It is really not easy to please everyone in a group of such size, you know!


*******************************

Spicy Thai has recently added some homely dishes to its menu to cater to families who just want simple home-cooked alike Thai-Chinese cuisine. It is a great move, I think, as it will make this place even more well-received, especially to those who might not like spicy food.


Cold Tofu with Special Thai Seafood Sauce ($15)

When you have elderly folks with you, tofu is one of the dishes you might include.


Stir-Fry Broccoli with Scallops ($20)

Most people likes broccoli and scallops and the combination of both should satisfy most people. The broccoli remained crunchy as it was not overcooked This dish is best to go with some rice as it is on the salty side because of the scallops.


Stir-Fry Cabbage with Thai Sweet Fish Sauce ($10)

This dish looked plain Jane and uninviting until one dug in to uncover this gem. The cabbage was cooked to give it a just-nice texture, not too soft and not too raw. Mixing in the Thai Sweet Fish Sauce, this dish was pretty appetising!


Stir-Fry Sambal Baby Sweet Potato Leaves ($10)

I love Sweet Potato Leaves but I hardly cook them because the preparation work was just too much of a hassle. And sambal chilli with baby sweet potato leaves is just an awesome combination, I could easily clean this dish up alone.


Kaeng Som Cha Om $18

I mentioned in my previous post that I love the Dill Pattie Omelette. This dish is Dill Pattie Omelette cooked in spicy and sour soup. Those who love tom yam soup may like this version. I personally like it too.


Stir-Fry Fish Maw with Crab Meat ($20)

Rather than having fish maw always cooked in soup, the owner tried stir-frying it with real crab meat. If you like fish maw, you may want to try this alternate way of cooking. It is pretty interesting, my sister who loves fish maw was full of praise for this dish.


Jade Noodles ($6 for 1 portion)

The Jade Noodles was well received by both adults and children. The owner specially brought in spinach noodles from Thailand. You will find the texture of the noodles very different from the spinach noodles we usually get. I suspect the type of flour or the proportion of the flour used to make this spinach noodles is different from what we could get here. This dish is a must try. 


Deep Fried Sea Bass with Thai Turmeric Sauce (Seasonal Price)

If you prefer fried fish over steam fish, then you should try this. The Deep Fried Sea Bass was crispy on the outside yet the flesh of the fish was soft and juicy. Mixing it with Thai Turmeric Sauce, you can be quite sure it will be well-loved.


Thai Fried Chilli Fish Head ($28)

Not many people appreciate fish heads, but if you like, this interesting recipe is worth a try. Be prepared to eat the fish heads with your hands though. My sister said this dish will go well with beer. :O




Whether you are planning for a causal meal or a gathering, if you like Thai food, do consider giving Spicy Thai a try. The Spicy Thai - Thai Cafe is pretty accessible by train (East West or Circle Line - Paya Lebar Station) or PIE (exit Paya Lebar). There is ample parking space behind at Aljunied Ave 5 and in front of Geylang East Swimming Pool.
